Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed), Playstation Vita (reviewed), and Windows Grinding in RPG’s is so entrenched in the genre that, at this point, it almost feels like near impossible for it to divorce itself from it. Hell, it’s such a part of the genre that a subgenre of them relishes in the grind, letting those of […]

We Are Doomed Review

Platforms: Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita (reviewed), Windows, and Xbox One We Are Doomed is a chaotic twin-stick arena style shooter. It’s a game all about using a giant laser beam to take out a variety of polygon enemies. It’s all about the gameplay and chasing high scores as there’s no story, no cutscenes, and […]

The Evil Within Review

Platforms: Playstation 3, PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One The human psyche is all too fragile.

Drifting Lands – See You Space Cowboy

Drifting Lands is a side-scrolling shooter after my heart. It takes a side-scrolling shooter and adds in RPG and rogue-like elements and that should keep me coming back far longer than pattern recognition does. I stepped into it a few days ago and found myself backing away from it before I even got a chance […]

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Coming To Playstation 4 In 2018

It’s been an odd haul for the until-now arcade-only Dissidia Final Fantasy. The fighting game was built on modified Playstation 4 hardware, but it wasn’t until today that Square Enix announced that it will be coming to the Playstation 4 in 2018 as Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (which is somehow not the most unwieldy title in the […]

Just released today for Playstation 4, Vita, and Windows via Steam platforms, Cladun Returns has a ton of features that got more than a bit of my attention. You […]

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 Arrives This Summer

Back in 2015 Mega Man Legacy Collection was released and featured the first six Mega Man games in one convenient package on current generation systems. Well Capcom has decided to show the Blue Bomber a little more love as they have announced Mega Man Legacy Collection 2. This second collection of games will feature entries […]

Extinction Is Coming (And It Looks A Lot Like Attack On Titan)

Iron Galaxy, the studio behind Dive Kick and Killer Instinct: Season 2, announced their project today. Extinction looks, for all the world, like a take on Attack on Titan‘s formula of giant monsters against humans. I really enjoyed Omega Force’s take on Attack on Titan, but it did have some hangups. Movement while not flinging through the air using the vertical maneuvering gear felt […]

Lost Sphear Is Next Project By Tokyo RPG Factory

Tokyo RPG Factory, the developer behind I Am Setsuna, announced their latest title today, Lost Sphear. Melancholy seems to be the name of the game for Tokyo RPG Factory and Lost Sphear is definitely not looking to buck that trend. It’s story centers around a young man named Kanata who lives in a world that has parts of it, […]

If you’re a fan of the Kunio-kun/River City, Natsume’s got your back. Nekketsu Mahou Monogatari, is coming our way as River City : Knights of Justice. Here’s the news from Natsume directly. “River City: Knights of Justice, known in Japan as Nekketsu Mahou Monogatari, is scheduled to launch as a 3DS e-Shop exclusive this summer. Kunio and […]

Apple iOS 11 Is Going To Kill Some Games

When Games and Junk first started, putting classic video games on the iPhone seemed absurd. The screen on the iPhone 4 seemed too small to be able to properly enjoy Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even the original Final Fantasy. I could only imagine playing these inferior ports turning people off them. All it really took to […]

Nintendo Discontinues The NES Classic

Nintendo has a fair amount of things going on for it right now. The world (us included) seems to be unable to stop talking about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild more than a month after its release. Their newest console, the Switch, seems to be doing rather well as it continues to be […]

Radiant Historia Getting Another Shot At Life With A 3DS Remake

Last night, Atlus teased us with this image. I became rather excited at the prospect of a new Radiant Historia game. A remake on Vita? 3DS? Switch? And then the realities of the present day kicked in and I realized it was probably going to be a smartphone port. Soul effectively crushed. Thankfully, Atlus pulled through. Radiant […]

Game Diaries: Yakuza 0 – Brutal And Brutally Funny

Yakuza 0’s not something that I was initially planning on getting. Thanks to Playstation Plus, I’ve got a few of the previous games in my digital collection, but I haven’t really touched any of them. I tried Yakuza 3 when it was newer, but it didn’t vibe with me right away, so I sent it […]

Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World Promo Videos Are Adorable

One of my favorite titles of 2015, Yoshi’s Woolly World, was just ported to the 3DS. Relabaled Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, it adds a mode that makes it easier for players to finish it by letting you use Poochy puppies as unlimited eggs and allows Yoshi to fly indefinitely. You can also get it bundled with […]

Game Diaries: Adventures In Alola – Bridging The Gap

If you haven’t been watching the show or, at the very least, heard about it, Ash lost in the Pokémon League. Again. His Greninja, a Water/Dark-type, lost to a Charizard. Yup, even with the type advantage, Ash still blew it. If you play through the demo of Sun and Moon, when you start out, you get a […]

Game Night – Rainbow Six: Siege

John Lucero, Jason Arriola, and Brittany Beshel spot some tangos in Rainbow Six: Siege. In case you’re wondering, yes, there’s friendly fire in this. And to see Brittany’s sick dance moves, tune in to the second part at around the 6:15 mark.

ROWYCO – Interview With Josh “Visager” Brechner

I recently got the chance to review Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King. Going through it, more than a few tracks really stood out, so I tracked down the composer to compliment him on his work. We ended up chatting for a bit and what initially was an article that I thought was as good excuse as […]

FuriousWang Plays Sweet Home – Complete Playthrough

Greetings and salutations! When October rolled around I felt it was time to do something a little more in spirit of the upcoming Halloween and so I began to play Sweet Home! Which was pretty much the precursor to the Resident Evil series. The experience was pretty memorable and I highly recommend any fan of […]

Not Your Grandma’s Crocheting Material

To say I was a little apprehensive about Kirby’s Epic Yarn would be making it sound like I had any interest in this game to begin with. As I would look through stores searching for a bargain that wasn’t in the ads, I would always pass right over certain games. Epic Yarn somehow got lumped […]

Fortune Favors the Bold and Death Favors the Dumb

26 June 2015 – Guadalajara, Mexico I sent my team to stop alien abductions in a city I can barely pronounce. Fairly straightforward operation – touch down, wipe out the aliens, head back to base. Colonel Ruben “Richter” Marquez and Major Zahara “Pox” Manana took shots and were out of service for a few days. […]

I Am the Arisen
