Jurassic World Evolution Review

I saw screenshots of this game and it looked good so I thought it might be an interesting management sim. I watched the first Jurassic World movie and thought it was OK although the CGI was well done. Those safari globes "Gyrospheres" visitors toured in looked really fun! So you're in charge of developing the Jurassic World on various...


Phantom Doctrine Review

It's been a while since I finished the turn based Xcom 2 so it was interesting to find a game that looked like it had similar gameplay. Phantom Doctrine allows you to play as the CIA or KGB so instead of fighting aliens you're up against humans. As I mentioned, if you've played Xcom 2 then you'll have less of a learning curve where each...


Sakura Wars: Sakura Shinguji 1/8 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

I watched the Sakura Wars TV series and quite enjoyed its steampunk setting during the Taisho Era. Great use of colours, good balance of comedy and action with some catchy theme songs too. Didn't know it started out as a Sega franchise back on the Sega Saturn (that was an interesting console!) So, let's have a look at how well this...


Northgard Review

It's been a while since I played a good RTS on the PC. Seems no one wants to make them like Command & Conquer or Starcraft any more. So it was a pleasant surprise when I came across indies title Northgard on Steam. It's not quite in the same style but there's enough resource management and unit control to make it fun to play. Story? Well...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country Review

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 got a prequel in the form of a DLC named Torna - The Golden Country that people could play a week early before the physical version if they already had the Season Pass. I didn't get the pass because I wasn't really interested in the minor extras which were mostly fan service oriented. It was revealed at Gamescom...


Hamachi: Yukino Yukinoshita Kimino 1/6 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

The heroine for this figure is from one of those Anime shows that have a long, long name... Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatte'ru AKA OreGairu or Hamachi in Japanese. English localisation is a bit more generic as My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU... Google that and you'll end up with all these live action teen comedy movies. You...


Anime Review 2018 Part III

A slice-of-life romcom that started off as a comic on the Japanese online artists community Pixiv before being serialised as a web comic. 26 year old Narumi Momose seems like your average optimistic cheery girl but she has a secret. She doesn't want anyone to find out she's an Otaku (geek) because guys always dump her when they find out...


Demon Gaze 2 Review

I came across the first game on PSN Plus and really enjoyed it which was a pleasant surprise because I never knew about the game let alone buy the game. It's been too long since I played the predecessor so can't quite remember how the story went but, I don't think this is a sequel although you do come across a few mild references. You play as a...


Two Point Hospital Review

I'm sure fans of Bullfrog's classic Theme Hospital has been waiting for a modern day successor. Others such as Hospital Tycoon just lacked the fun and polish to beat or be close to the classic. Now game developers that worked on Theme Hospital Mark Webley and Gary Carr has gone off to develop Two Point Studio to give it anothertry...


Bikini Warriors: Valkyrie 1/7 Figure, CN Version Review

Never watched Bikini Warriors but you can guess what kind of show it is from the title already. Characters don't even have names other than the different classes you can have from your common fantasy RPG. Any Tony Taka fans will probably recognise his female character design right away. The faces always look very similar if you look at...
