[Game Review] Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call (3DS)

In 3DS, Nintendo, Reviews by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

As a long time fan of the Final Fantasy series and music rhythm games, Square Enix’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call was one of my most anticipated games for the year after I had demoed it at E3.

[Game Review] UnEpic (PC)

In PC, Reviews, Wii-U by Davis FanLeave a Comment

The problem with indie games right now is that just about every developer feels that they can improve a formula or recreate some nostalgic genre for players. Sadly, that isn’t usually true. Just once in a while though, as with non-indie games, some titles stand out among the rest and fulfill their missions. UnEpic, an indie title created by Spain’s …

[Game Review] One Piece: Unlimited World Red (Vita)

In PS3, Reviews, Vita, Wii-U by Davis FanLeave a Comment

As I’ve gotten older, I found myself straying farther and farther from anime. Though I still love me some Gundam, I haven’t even touched the newer popular series like Attack on Titans and Kill la Kill until I was bored enough to take the plunge on Netflix.

In 3DS, Previews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

I am always ready for a new Harvest Moon, and when we dropped by the Natsume booth (complete with its own gigantic cow), I was especially pleased to see The Lost Valley at its very own demo station.
