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.

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?
