Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ is awesome. I’ve played it a lot and got very high on many of the leaderboards in it. When I saw it was getting a sequel I was really hyped.

So I’ve played it a bit and it’s time for a mini-review! Not much to say about this one. See if I liked it or if the sequel’s a dud.

Games I won’t review: Vita games – Hatsune Miku Diva X, Shiren the Wanderer

September 12th, 2016 No comments

I really just want to get a post out there since I’m not posting much recently. It’s another not-review. Next post will be a proper review, and might be soon.

The latest US release of Hatsune Miku, Project Diva X, and a game I forgot to cancel my pre-order for, Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate (stupid long name). One of those may end up just being a rant towards a series I don’t like…

Let’s go!

Games I won’t review – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

September 5th, 2016 No comments

Deus_Ex,_Mankind_Divided

So you would think this is a game that would merit a full review, right? And, true enough, it definitely does. However, I’m playing the PC version and… I don’t know if it’s my computer, or if the game is badly optimized on PC (which would be weird since the previous game ran great on PC)… But there’s a good reason I decided not to play it anymore.

Still gonna give it a quick mini-review, since I didn’t play enough of it to fully judge it.

Read on and see why I’m not reviewing one of the biggest games of the year!

Games coming out in September 2016

August 23rd, 2016 No comments

Holy shit FFXV is coming o… wait it got delayed again. Oh well, at least there’s other stuff coming out and that means more time for me to play other RPGs. And maybe there’s gonna be enough releases for me to actually post stuff (or too much for me to be able to post stuff? We’ll see). I do want to start posting these rants I’ve had in writing for a while.

So despite FFXV being delayed (because of course), September still includes: 9 multiplats, 1 PS4 game, 7 3DS releases (8 if you count multiple versions) and 3 for Vita. Doesn’t sound like much (except for the 3DS, holy crap), but there’s some good or at least interesting stuff in here.

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays. Indies in particular are kinda random, or bad at making their games known. So if there’s no indie games here, it’s pretty normal.

Read on and see what’s up!

I am Setsuna review

August 11th, 2016 No comments

This was a cool announcement on Square Enix’s side last year. A classic JRPG reminiscent of many of their classic SNES games. Though we didn’t get the Vita version (would’ve been my version of choice, as usual), I’m still happy we got it here. I ended up getting the PC version, which may have been a mistake but WHATEVER.

So read on and see if it’s good!

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir review

August 11th, 2016 No comments

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir
Odin Sphere was a fairly popular RPG on PS2. It was also a game I never played. Not for lack of wanting, but at the time I was a teenager and didn’t exactly have the funds to buy all the games I wanted like I do now. So this was one I skipped on.

Unlike most remasters I was pretty happy about this one, just because I would finally get to play it, and honestly I think PS2-era games are getting old enough to warrant that kind of release unlike idiotic game companies remastering games that were on PS3 and 360.

So let’s see how this game I missed is!

Gal Gun: Double Peace review

August 1st, 2016 No comments

gal gun 2

I don’t get to do this often, since I don’t usually get games early, but somehow my pre-order for this shipped a week early, so I  was able to play enough of this to write a review… just a day before release! W00!

So Gal Gun: Double Peace is a sequel to the Xbox 360 CLASSIC Gal Gun, a fairly unique and weird but pretty fun rail-shooter. It didn’t see a release outside of Asia, but it was region-free so I did get it on 360. It was a bit hard to properly play though since I couldn’t read certain instructions and obviously couldn’t choose the right dialogue choices. So I’m pretty happy the sequel did see an english release.

So read on and see if it’s fun!

Games coming out in August 2016

July 27th, 2016 No comments

The summer months are always kinda slow. It might not look that bad when I count down the number of games right under this short paragraph, but it’s lots of filler. It’s pretty subpar overall.

August will include: 11 multiplats, 2 PS4 games, 1 PC release and 1 for 3DS.

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Might be missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays. Indies in particular are kinda random. So if there’s no indie games here, it’s pretty normal.

Adventures of Mana review

July 22nd, 2016 No comments

Adventures of Mana
I think gamers as a whole have pretty good memories with the classic game Secret of Mana on Super Nintendo and many of its sequels. What might be less known is that Secret of Mana is the second game in the series, which is called Seiken Densetsu in Japan. The first Seiken Densetsu did come out in the west, though it was called Final Fantasy Adventure on Game Boy. The GBA got a complete remake called Sword of Mana, though it was a very different game overall.

Adventures of Mana is a mobile game that recently got ported to Vita, and it’s what I’d call more of a “straight port “of the Game Boy game, though it has 3D graphics, rather than the re-imagining Sword of Mana was. I haven’t played the GB version in a long ass time, so I don’t know what was changed, but here’s a quick review!

Games I won’t review – Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Pac-Man 256

July 22nd, 2016 No comments

Here’s a game I won’t be reviewing. I was a fan of most previous Star Ocean games, even 4 which I know people didn’t like as much. I had decent hopes for this one. And the reason I’m not reviewing it is because I got bored of it only a few hours in.

So read on and see why it’s not getting a full review. Bonus: a non-review for Pac-Man 256!
