Mini Review: Tales of Xillia 2

It kinda feels that this blog is drifting away from its original purpose… Oh well. It’s not too often you find direct sequels for JRPGs and those which do get made are often though of as inferior to their predecessor and the series in general. Just think of FFX-2, or FFXIII-2 (though XIII was a [...]

Unboxing: Tales of Xillia 2 Ludger Kresnik Collectors Edition

Thought I’d do something a little different for this weeks post. I’ve been playing around with my various video camera equipment while trying to find the best options for a different video review for something else which should appear soon but as a test, I was using the camera which came with the Call of [...]

Mini Review: Astebreed

I had planned to make this post an update on HomuHomu (she’s coming along, albeit slowly) but over the weekend, I went and picked up the Humble Bundle Japan edition and within that bundle was this real gem of a game which has been out for a while but I think really deserves a mention [...]

Mini Review: Battle Princess of Arcadias

Well, this is a difficult one. I had planned to post this last week but wanted more time to progress more into it to ensure that I had a good grasp of what the game had to offer… Then the Destiny beta happened. Oh well, I did progress a fair bit so here goes with [...]

Mini Review: Monster Monpiece

OK, I have to confess that I never thought this would get a western release and was a little adamant about buying it but decent word of mouth and general curiosity won me over… So let’s take a look at monster monpiece for the PS Vita

At its core, this is collectible card battle [...]

Mini Review: Deception IV: Blood Ties

It may surprise you that I’ve been a long time fan of the deception series. Heck, I first played it before it was even released in europe back in 1998. Sadly, I did miss the very first deception game from 1996 but I played Kagero: deception 2 while I was in Japan and, after fumbling [...]

Mini Review: Titanfall

This is probably the first BIG release of the year. Sure, there have been some large names like Lightning returns but in terms of sheer expectation and marketing behind it, nothing comes close and very few will come close this year! Stand by for Titanfall!

I think everyone knows the score when it comes [...]

Mini Preview: Ace Combat Infinity beta

Free-to-play is a rather dirty phrase for video games right now. Mention it and you either think of really crappy games which hold back lots of content and items behind a paywall or games which basically force you to pony up to proceed. Some can work (Team Fortress 2, some MMORPGs) but most don’t and [...]

Mini Review: Wii U

OK, I’ve put this off long enough. Over christmas, I received a Wii U as a gift and have been putting it through its paces somewhat so I figure now is a decent time to give my thoughts on it.

The Wii U has been having a hard time of late as its sales [...]

Another one bites the dust

Man, and I thought 2012 ended badly… 2013 seemed to just want to carry on the way it started and I am very glad to see the back of this year!!

Still, some things didn’t change, like the flux of anime shows which have come and gone. Some are remembered while others are forgotten. But [...]
