I still remember when LEGO Star Wars first released and I thought a LEGO game was a fun novelty. “A game where everything is made out of LEGO, even the characters? That sounds amusing!” I thought to myself. Well, as it turns out it was amusing enough to spawn seemingly endless amounts of LEGO-themed licensed [&hellip Read more

Tales of Hearts R Review

I think it’s fair to say at this point that the Tales series is rivalling the likes of Final Fantasy for the title of ‘Best JRPG Franchise’.

What happens when you cross an adventure game with a hack-and-slash action game? A hack-and-slash adventure game, right? Well, no, actually you get a hack-and-slash game with characters from an adventure game.

Natural Doctrine Review – Cruel and Unusual

natural-doctrine-huge-monster

“Games just aren’t difficult anymore” is a phrase thrown around by elder, nostalgic gamers regarding the games of their youth.
