Mini Review & series retrospective – Dead or Alive Xtreme 3

Oh boy… Well, this one is going to be a little tricky. Not much needs to be said about DoA Xtreme 3. It’s development history is pretty much well known with the publishers quickly saying that they won’t publish it in the west and a few high profile people basically saying it’s due to “the […]

First Impressions: Valkyria: Azure Revolution

Like many other fans, I was pretty stoked to hear that Valkyria Chronicles was going to get a re-release on PS4. I’m not usually a fan of re-releases of previous gen games on current systems but my love of Valkyria Chronicles runs deep. I was also one of the many who were excited to hear […]

Exit, Stage right!

And once again, I and this blog survive past another 12 months! To be fair, 2015 turned out to be relatively uneventful compared to previous years and even the minor personal dramas paled in comparison to what has come before. Then again, there are also times which help remind me that I have good connections […]

Mini Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve done a mini-review and this one kinda deserves it since I’ve been sinking so much time into it. Xenoblade Chronicles X is basically the sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles on the wii… Except they have almost nothing in common save for some elements of the combat […]

Mini Review: onechanbara Z2 chaos

Back in the day, a publisher by the name of D3 released a series of games in Japan called the “simple series”. They were budget titles made on shoestring budgets and it showed. Some titles made their way to the west. The 2 best known are earth defence force and onechanbara. EDF was a very […]

E3 2015 Keynote speech battle

I skipped this post last year as there really wasn’t much to talk about. no Killer announcements or big megaton news pieces from the three to get excited for. Guess they were saving themselves for this year…


None of the big 3 really fumbled (though microsoft did put the foot in their mouth […]

Mini Review: Splatoon



This review is a bit late but, due to stuff, I was away from my wii U for pretty much the whole week after the game was released so I haven’t been able to put it through its paces properly until now. It also didn’t help that many features and a new […]

Mini Review: Damascus Gear Operation Tokyo

It’s been a while since I did a game review on this blog, mostly because I’ve been playing mostly bit AAA titles and there’s no real need to throw one more voice into the pile, but then there was a somewhat interesting PS Vita release last week which I picked up.

Damascus Gear is a […]

Press Start to continue.

Long time readers may remember that I have a Love/Hate relationship with the city of Paris, in that I hate it but it loves to do events which I would enjoy and go an extra mile to attend. The last time I did something so drastic as to go to Paris for an event was […]

Day of the Unicorn

Sorry for the delay in post but I was travelling after spending the long weekend away from my usual tools. But as an offshoot, I had some time to finish off my unbuilt gunpla! Even better (or worse), right at the end of my time off, a parcel arrived from my friend Q in Hong […]
