[Review] Fate/EXTELLA Falls Short

In PC, PS4, Reviews, Switch, Vita by Davis FanLeave a Comment

Though the Fate series may not be the cash cow that other anime series are in the United States, it certainly has enough appeal in Japan to greenlight practically any type of title it damn well pleases. Enter Fate/EXTELLA, a hack-and-slasher by Marvelous; unfortunately, like many other anime-based titles, it falls short and fails where other original IPs succeed.

[Review] Valkryia Revolution Revolutionizes Little

In PS4, Reviews, Vita, Xbox One by Davis Fan

Spin-offs are often money-grabs that fail to capture the magic of the original, though fans will still undoubtedly flock to it as they would any other entry into the primary franchise. Exceptions to this do exist, but Valkryia Revolution is not one of them.

[Review] Valkyrie Drive – BHIKKHUNI: Tonight We Bounce Back

In PC, Reviews by Will Wong

I’ll be honest. Most “beat ’em ups” have the same dull combat mechanics that involves spamming the same combo over and over.

[Review] Alwa’s Awakening – This Platformer Though…

In PC, Reviews by Gabriel Macias

If someone were to have told me that I would end up enjoying this game as much as I did before I played it, I definitely would have laughed. From the start, Alwa’s Awakening looked pretty interesting to me based on the overall 8-bit feeling that developer Elden Pixels was going for. However, I was skeptical on how well they …

[Review] 8-Bit Invaders (more like I still don’t know what I played)

In PC, Reviews by Matthew Bahk

I know the game title itself sounds a little unfavorable; however, the game deserves more credit than I expected.  From first glance, it may seem to be suspicious mess, but it redeems itself through its actually enjoyable gameplay (once you stop trying to understand what is happening in game, at least).
