Xblaze Code: Embryo Review

Virtual novels have always been somewhat ignored in the US. A couple surprises have made their mark in 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward. Luckily, Aksys has localized XBlaze Code: Embryo, a prequel to the BlazBlue series of fighting games, to the western world. There’s one thing any gamer should know about

Squids Odyssey Review

Squids Odyssey is a game that enacts its own storyline as treasure-hunting Squids go ‘liberate antiques’. There are eight worlds to conquer in Squids Odyssey, each of them has a variety of levels and enemies to complete and defeat. There are also multiple variations of Squids, each with their own class and

Blue Estate Review

Blue Estate is bear with me here, a rail-shooter.  Now that you’re (hopefully) done cringing, it warrants mentioning that the solidly bad reputation of rail-shooters coming across rather dull and slap-dash at the best of times usually seems pretty accurate, but is it fair to assume that they’re all bad?

Contrast Review

Developed by Compulsion Games, Contrast is an arcade puzzle game that centers on using and creating shadows to navigate through your environment. When you’re not in a shadow you retain your 3D form and when in you are in shadow you acquire a 2D form. While the premise sounds intriguing, most

Noir Syndrome Review

Developed by Glass Knuckle and Bombadeer Studios, Noir Syndrome encompasses the reminiscent of the 1940s murder-mystery era all the while playing detective in a town filled with crimes that never cease to end. There is no background story for Noir Syndrome giving the player creative freedom to develop one as he or she goes along. Is

Resogun Heroes Review

Resogun, XDEV Studio Europe’s PS4 flagship title, received its first piece of downloadable content this week in Resogun Heroes, a $5 add-on (or a measly $8 for the season pass) bringing two new unique game modes. Is the DLC worth the small asking price, or has Resogun’s flare fizzled out?

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

Valiant Heart: The Great War, the newest UbiArt framework game following the fantastic Child of Light and Raymond games, has finally been released. Ubisoft Montpellier has promised a realistic and entertaining depiction of the First World War, a difficult proposition for one of the bloodiest struggles of all time. Did
