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...


Tower of Time Tips

I really enjoyed playing this CRPG but noticed there weren't any written guides out there so (at the time of writing) the only thing you could do was trawl through Steam's forum to find solutions. Or maybe there is but the game's name "Tower of Time" is so generic search engines just haven't picked up on them yet. So, I decided a put...


Tower of Time Review

It's been a while since I played a good RPG or in this case, Tower of Time is a "CRPG" which basically mimics the old number games of dice based Dungeon and Dragon games. Dark times rule the land of Atara after a catastrophe took place. A nameless young boy discovers a tower one day while out hunting and curiosity gets the better of him as...


Demon Gaze Review

Anyone into the old D&D style dungeon crawlers where you make 90 degrees turns should like this - If you don't mind the cutesy "moe" Anime graphics. Gameplay In Demon Gaze, Flan runs a manor for adventurers which acts as your base for resting up, arranging party members, purchasing items and getting new quests. Your main goal as Demon...


Last Ranker Review

Right, British slang joke aside... In the story of Last Ranker written by Kazushige Nojima (FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, Kingdom Hearts etc.), Zig is tired of following the seemingly pointless traditions in his home town of Gantala. Seeing no future in staying there, he decides to leave and enrol in the city's "Rankers", an organisation...


Xenoblade Review

In the world of Xenoblade, there were two gods - one of machine and one of flesh once locked in an seemingly endless battle. After their battle came to an end, lifeforms appeared on each of these dormant gods and a brand new war began between living creatures and machine. When Shulk's home Colony-9 is attacked, killing many of the...

Falcom must really love their "Sora no Kiseki" RPG setup because they are now working on a fourth title for the PSP! There's not much information regarding this new title named "Zero no Kiseki" at the moment other than teaser screenshots and that the protagonists are named Loyd Bannings and Elly McDowell.

Dragon Age Origins Awakening Expansion Review

Just 3 months after Bioware released their D&D Dragon Age Origins game, they release a brand new expansion pack and hints the true sequel will follow next year in 2011. Not a bad thing... As long as the game's quality remains more or less the same. In "The Awakening", you're now the Warden-Commander who is out to re-establish the Order of...


Dragon Age Origins Review

Dragon Age Origins has your typical Western fantasy storyline with yet another evil force threatening to destroy the world and once again, it's up to the elves, dwarves and humans to work together to put an end to it. You're a promising apprentice that just graduated and is recruited as a Grey Warden to help fight off a Blight - A large...
