  • Hatoful Boyfriend: Exactly What You Think It Is, Yet So Much More.

    A regular fixture in many an arcade, bowling alley or roller rink for decades, SEGA's Crazy Taxiturned the third-person driving game into a chaotic experience and taught you everything NOT to do...
  • Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed Review

    It's very hard to describe a game like Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed. The nearest comparison I can give is that it is similar to Sega's Yakuza series.  Instead of Shinjuku, you will explore...
  • Firefall Review (Video) Exclusive

     In a perfect world, Firefall could have easily been a remarkable free-to-play title.  Afterall, it's beautiful, fast-paced, and tries its best to incorporate group play.  However, with a buggy...
  • Papers, Please Review

    Has there ever been a game that sounded so unappealing to you that when, by recommendation or by chance, you play it and you fall head over heels in love with it? That's exactly how I'd describe...
  • Corpse Party: Blood Covered Review

    Warning: This review contains graphic content from a game rated M for Mature. Reader discretion is strongly advised. Horror is a complicated thing to define, especially in video games. It’s...

  • Finding Teddy Review: A Musical and Spooky Trip Into Another World

  • Rogue Legacy Review

    The basic mechanics of Rogue Legacy are very similar to an old-school Castlevania game, except the castle is randomly generated every time you step inside so you never know what you’re going to...
  • Super Trench Attack! Review

    Super Trench Attack! is a comedy isometric shooter taking place in a World War setting. Brought to you by Retro Army it is as much of a parody game as it is an action game. You start out as a...
  • Three Fourths Home Review: Its Genre's Game of the Year

    When playing a video game, I always focus on several factors, like most reviewers do. The thing with narrative games though, is that various aspects of the game are cut down in order to focus more...
  • Lovely Planet Review

    Lovely Planet is probably the weirdest FPS you will play this year. Not only does it have extraordinary graphical style, but it is at least ten times more hectic than it looks from the...
  • Gods Will Be Watching Review: A Game You'll Love to Hate

    I've been forced to invent new expletives in order to adequately express the boiling rage I feel every time this game defeats me--which is pretty often. To be fair, I skipped playing Easy Mode and...
