[Game Review] Styx: Master of Shadows (PC)

In PC, Reviews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Styx: Master of Shadows is a prequel that takes place in the same universe as Cyanide Studio’s previous Of Orcs and Men, an action-RPG that put you in the shoes of an orc and goblin pair as they fight the oppressive Empire of Man. Unlike Of Orcs and Men, however, the only character you play here is Styx, which makes …

[Game Review] Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (PC)

In Reviews by Brian HurtadoLeave a Comment

There are three kinds of Lord of the Rings fans: Those who’ve seen the movies, those who’ve read the books, and those who’ve read the Silmarillion. I happen to fall into the third group. For those who don’t know The Silmarillion is the basis for everything in Lord of the Rings. It’s J.R.R. Tolkien’s history book for Middle-earth. It begins …

[Game Review] Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3)

In 360, PS3, Reviews by Davis FanLeave a Comment

When I initially heard about Persona 4 Arena, I had already imagined how bad the game would turn out, considering Arc System Works’ previous history of fighting game adaptations, like Fist of the North Star and Sengoku Basara X. Both games were fun in their own right, but never took off competitively. Thankfully, I was wrong and Arena ended up being …

[Game Review] Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PC)

In 360, PC, PS3, Reviews by Davis FanLeave a Comment

It seems as though there’s a new Naruto fighting game every year, almost like sports titles. Considering the relatively niche market in the states, it shows a certain confidence that Bandai Namco has in the titles. Unlike many of Bandai Namco’s other recent, niche titles that were only blessed with a digital release, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution received …

[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. While not exactly a completely different game than the first Theatrhythm, Curtain Call adds all the DLC that was for the first …

[Game Review] Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Ivory King (PC)

In PC, Reviews by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

With the release of Crown of the Ivory King, the Dark Souls 2 DLC trilogy finally comes to an end, and I can finally put away Dark Souls 2 forever. I had played through all three hoping they would all be of equal quality as the Artorias of the Abyss DLC for Dark Souls, but the quality of it all …

[Game Review] Lethal League (PC)

In Reviews by Brian HurtadoLeave a Comment

One of the best ways I’ve heard someone describe Lethal League is as follows: “Pong meets Super Smash Bros.” And, well, that’s pretty accurate. It sounds absolutely ridiculous and it’s kind of hard to imagine, but Lethal League does it and it does it well. Gameplay is incredibly straightforward. Hit a ball at a player, the other player hits it back. If …

[Game Review] Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (PC)

In PC, Reviews by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

I’ve never played Drinkbox Studios’ Guacamelee!, but I was always interested in it since I love wrestling and anything wrestling themed for that matter. When Super Turbo Championship Edition was released, it was finally my chance to try out the game since it features new content as well as made fun of Capcom’s fighting game titling, and I can appreciate anything …

[Game Review] Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Vita)

In Reviews, Vita by Davis FanLeave a Comment

Though most visual novels (or porn games) aren’t too popular in the states, localization companies like NIS America and Aksys Games have been bringing over titles like Danganronpa and Hakuoki. But let’s not forget slightly older titles like the Ace Attorney series from Capcom, which effectively is a detective game with a visual novel presentation. For those who haven’t played …

[Game Review] Five Nights at Freddy’s (PC)

In PC, Reviews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Sheer terror is not an emotion that I’m particularly fond of experiencing, and as a result, I shy away from most, if not all horror games on principle. It was a struggle, then, to sit in a chair and force myself to play the most hyped horror game of the summer. And it was even more of a struggle when …
