Valkyria Chronicles 4 Platinum Trophy Guide

Not long ago I reviewed Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest and long awaited new entry to Sega's popular VC franchise and I enjoyed it so much I decided I'd write a guide for platinuming it. I'm sure there are already plenty of videos that show you how to 1 turn missions for S rank (or "A" in the case of localised Western copies of the game...


Detroit: Become Human Review

Robot technology has reached the stage where they're capable of virtually performing any task that a human can do and are now used to serve or work in various parts of the industry. However, recently there have been reports where such androids have turned into a "deviant", running away from their master or worse - killing them. Now...


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

It's been a looong time since Valkyria Chronicles III on the PSP - more than 7 years ago. We had a mediocre arcade style spin-off Valkyria Revolution but that didn't quite satiate the fans hope for a real new VC game so needless to say, there was plenty of excitement when VC4 was announced. Valkyria Chronicles was a special game on the...


Monster Hunter World Review

The Monster Hunter franchise has long been on Nintendo consoles so it was quite a pleasant surprise to learn it was getting a new game on the PS4. Playing the games on Nintendo consoles was fun but they were visually lacking thanks to the underpowered hardware. Now we have Monster Hunter World that has thrown out the comicy look Capcom...


Dragon Quest Builders Review

Basically Dragon Quest meets Minecraft which means you build and explore with a purpose. The world has been destroyed by darkness and you as the hero/heroine is the only one that can remember how to build things. Silly plot eh? Each land represents a level and your objective is to build up the town and then eventually defeat the boss...


Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness Review

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness tells of a sci-fi world where everything has been digitalised including the looks of clothes, food, buildings and room decorations now replaced by holograms. The public is governed by an AI super computer system known as Sybil. Sybil has cameras everywhere monitoring everyone's PsychoPass...


Blue Reflection Review

Blue Reflection is Gust's last title in the "Beautiful Girls Festival" series following after Atelier Sofie and Nights of Azure 2. Taking part in its production includes character designer Mel Kishida (Atelier series) and writer Keiichi Shigusawa (Kino's Journey, Alison, Sword Art Online: Gungale Online). Should be something...


Nier: Automata Review

Never did get into the Nier game on the PS3 but after playing the demo, I was quite excited about Nier:Automata. The post apocalyptic story is quite silly - aliens sent automatons to Earth and became a threat so big humans had to flee to the moon. Now they have come with a way to transfer their memories between androids to continue the...


Gravity Rush 2 Review

Gravity Rush 2 takes place some time after the prequel. If you haven't watched the OVA Anime "Overture" then basically Kat, Raven and Syd are caught up in a gravity storm one day while fighting some villains. Now Syd and Kat are separated from Raven and are taken in by a wandering village who mines for a living. The gameplay is fairly much...


Valkyria Azure Revolution Review

Been 6 years since the last VC game, Valkyria Chronicles 3 was released on PSP. Now we finally have a new title but despite the Selvaria look-alike in the promotion illustration, it's only set in the same universe and as the title "Valkyria Revolution" suggests, with the gameplay going through some "revolution". Amleth, one of 5...
