Resident Evil Revelations 2 Final Review

claire_res_rev_2

You’ll probably want to read our Episode 1, Episode 2 and Episode 3 reviews before this one.   This whole time I’ve been thinking that Resident Evil Revelations 2 was just a decent side-story in the Resident Evil universe, something that would entertain me during the duration of its release schedule, something I would inevitably [&hellip Read more

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 3 Review

resident-evil-revelations-2-blonde

So far I’ve been enjoying Resident Evil Revelations 2, but the main thing that’s been frustrating me is the lack of boss encounters – or memorable ones, at least. Back in the original Resident Evil, the snake Yawn is remembered by everyone who fought him, and in Resident Evil 4 El Gigante is – well, [&hellip Read more

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 2 Review

res_rev_ep_2_barry

Immediately, I’m thankful. Whereas Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1 (of which I talked extensively here) had a slow intro built to set the stage and add atmosphere, Episode 2 goes immediately into gameplay – but that can be a bit of a double-edged sword in the Resident Evil series… Claire and Moira continue to [&hellip Read more

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1 Review

res_rev_ep_1_claire

Does anyone still remember 2012’s Resident Evil 6? A title with hype as big as its budget only to be met with a scathing critical reception, with many gamers saying the franchise was desperately in need of a reboot. Another popular opinion was that Resident Evil Revelations – released earlier the same year on handhelds, [&hellip Read more

Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed Review

akibas-trip-undead-and-undressed-ensemble

Truth be told, I’ve never been to Japan – let alone Tokyo – but I get the strange feeling that Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed isn’t an accurate representation of Japan’s capital, or its world-famous Akihabara district. If it were like this I would question a few things, number one probably being why so many [&hellip Read more

DragonBall Xenoverse Review – Super Saiyan Gaming

dragon-ball-xenoverse_canyon

Nowadays my childhood seems like one big blur, school and teenage years mashed in a mess of hazy memories where I spent my time playing games and avoiding doing any “work” if I could. Most importantly, it was a time that helped shape my personal tastes in games, TV, movies and anime forever – and [&hellip Read more

Resident Evil HD Review – Reviving Survival Horror

ResidentEvil_HDRemaster_1

Resident Evil is a gaming juggernaut – one of the few gaming properties to make it into Hollywood and stay there for more than a single movie, a franchise that has instilled fear and horror in thousands of gamers. It probably peaked at Resident Evil 4, still one of the best games of the last [&hellip Read more

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review

When Nintendo announced Captain Toad was getting his own game everyone was delighted, overjoyed in fact, thinking of a downloadable Captain Toad puzzle game. Then Nintendo said; “No, actually, this is a full retail release”, and it sounded a bit weird to everyone. The Captain Toad minigames in Super Mario 3D World were fun and cute, [&hellip Read more

Persona Q Review – Plenty of Personality

persona-q-cast

What happens when a spin-off of a hardcore JRPG crosses with a hardcore dungeon crawling JRPG? JRPG-ception, that’s what, and with Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth I’m more than happy to continue going deeper… It’s the series that’s become so popular even Atlus have decided to forget about it ever being a spin-off. Shin [&hellip Read more

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Review

laracroft_templeosiris_artwork

When Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light released in 2010 it was the game that Tomb Raider fans had no idea they even wanted. A game traditionally about platforming and exploration suddenly became an isometric perspective multiplayer shooter with a healthy dose of puzzles and collectables. It was fantastic and featured more actual tomb [&hellip Read more
