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: 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 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: Gundam Extreme Vs

The first post of 2012! And thanks to some extended time off, I have no real projects or figure purchases to speak of (though I have another new kit to add to the queue!) so for this post, I decided to go and review the last game I purchased in 2011, Gundam Extreme vs on [...]

Mini Review: Uncharted 3

Too… Many… Games!!!

Seriously! After Arkham City and uncharted 3, I still have yet to complete Shadow of the Colossus from the HD remake collection and Sonic Generations (which should be finished soon. Probably by next week). And that’s not counting Skyward Sword, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Modern Warfare 3 and Gundam Extreme [...]

Mini Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia

I’m sure every videogamer has come across one. A game which is an enigma. Something which you find almost impossible to put into words if asked to describe what you thought about it. A game which you keep returning to even when you know that your time would be better spent doing something else. [...]

Mini Review: Uncharted 2 Among Thieves

Been a while since I did one of these, but then there haven’t been many excellent or massively noteworthy titles being released for a while, except maybe Batman: Arkham Asylum, which was (mostly) quite brill. I guess there was Halo 3:ODST but truth be told, I didn’t like it very much, just like most [...]

Mini Review: Fat Princess!!

Bit of a lazy post this week because… well, touhou (Damn you, Meronpan!!!) and this game (mostly this game) have eaten into my time. I have been waiting for this PSN downloadable title since it was announced at E3 last year so I was really hoping that it was worth the wait, esp since [...]

Mini Review: Ghostbusters The Video Game

If there’s something strange In the Neighbourhood, Who you gonna call?

Oh boy, this one is going to be fun! Ghostbusters is a game which should not need any kind of introduction. A game linked to one of the most loved movies of all time, with a script from the original writers and most [...]
