The Legend of Korra: The Video Game Review

The-Legend-of-Korra-post-3_zpsea4250de

The animated Avatar franchise has had a bad history with video game adaptations. Past games that focused on the series have all been shallow beat-‘em ups with little enjoyment other than fan service. The Legend of Korra hopes to right the wrongs of past games in the franchise by being an action packed 3D brawler that can appeal to anyone.

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed Review

ATuau

Written by Milo Fisher

Akiba’s Trip is one of the few whacky Japanese games that ten years ago we would of assumed would never make it across seas. But thanks to the team at NIS, the game has been lovingly localized for European audiences. The downside to bringing these strange Japanese RPGs is that they aren’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and Akiba’s Trip may be the hardest game to sell to a mass market. Akiba’s Trip is a free roam RPG that involves running around Japan attacking and stripping vampires.  Yep, it’s one of those games.

Destiny Review

destiny-0

Words by Milo Fisher

Destiny is a universe jam packed full of adventure. Unfortunately, most of those adventures end up being repetitive and unimaginative.

One Piece Unlimited World Red Review

One-Piece-Unlimited-World-Red

Written by Milo Fisher

One Piece has been going for over 15 years now, and yet has never managed to find a video game genre that fit it. The series would often borrow from other franchises for its video game adaptations (see One Piece Pirate Warriors 2) but would never dare to be original. One Piece Unlimited World Red takes a bold step for the franchise by being the first original title to grace a home system, and it does so wonderfully.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Review

jojos-bizarre-adventure-all-star-battle-cover

Trying to talk to people in the west about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is like talking to a brick wall, it’s practically unknown. Meanwhile in Japan, it’s a highly popular manga and anime series that’s been going strong for more than 20 years, seeing multiple video game and movie adaptations. For this review, I’m going to assume that you’ve never heard of the franchise before in your life, and try to explain why this game, along with the series, is worth your time.

Tales of Symphonia HD Review

Words by Milo Fisher

I’ve always held the “Tales of” series close to my heart. From the cheesy writing, to the simplistic yet addictive combat, I love it all. And while I was never fortunate enough to experience the Symphonia games when they were originally released, the glorious teams at Namco Bandi and tri-Crescendo have come together to re-release the two role playing epics in wondrous HD.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Demo Impressions

Words by Milo Fisher

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of my favourite anime out there. It has whacky characters, bombastic battles, manly posing, and a whole lot of people shouting “JOJO!” and “DIO!” at the top of their lungs. It’s bizarre, and it’s wonderful. So when word came about that the fighting game was coming to the west, I was overjoyed with the thought that more people would experience the sheer joy from the game that I felt watching the anime. After playing a good few hours of the new demo that was just released, all I can say is that I want this game more than ever.

The Lego Movie Game Review

Lego movie

Words by Milo Fisher

After the recent release of the fantastic Lego Movie, expectations for the movie based tie-in game were high. So far all Lego games had been tied to another franchise, so having the game be set in a world that was made to already be Lego was a scary thought. Would the game be able to deliver the same amount of entertainment and comedy as the film while also providing hours of addictive gameplay? Well…

I got the chance to visit Namco Bandai recently to get our hands on Dark Souls II. And after playing the first three hours, I can safely say that it’s just as punishing and rewarding as it’s predecessor, and I rather loved it.

Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z Review

mz23

Words By Milo Fisher

Dragon Ball Z is one of the most beloved anime franchises in the western world. The expansive amount of content in the universe just begs to be turned into a video game. Battle of Z is the latest Dragon Ball game to grace our eyes, but is it worth charging you Ki for? Or should you teleport away?

Get your pickaxe, Minecraft tunnels its way to PS3

minecraft

Minecraft is just about on every device so it’s strange to have taken this long to finally get its ass on PS3. The pixelated mine-fest shot to massive success since it first released on PC in 2009 and now PS3 owners can play it from the comfort of their Dualshock.

Deadly Premonition: Directors Cut Impressions

deadly_premonition__directors_cut_wallpaper_by_christian2506-d5vj88t

Deadly Premonition is the twin peaks of gaming. It’s a B-movie for gamers. It’s a fantastically strange adventure that people are going to either love to bits, or hate with a burning passion.

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Review

bmUploads_2013-07-03_3656_Saint-Seiya-Brave-Soldiers-EMEA-Logo1

When a new fighting game is made by Capcom, people lose their minds. But when a new fighting game is made by Dimps, no one seems to notice. It’s a shame, as Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is an incredibly enjoyable and well made anime fighting game that should be played by all anime fans alike.

Stick it to the Man review

stickittotheman

Stick it to the man is a hilarious, whacky, and enjoyable experience that harkens back to point and click games of old, but with less puzzles and more platforming. With its crazy cast of characters and interesting story, Stick it to the man is good fun.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 review

one-piece-pirate-warriors-2-characters-646x325

Luffy and his rag tag band of Straw Hat pirates are back once again with their second PS3 outing. And while this is a Dynasty Warriors spin off through and through, anyone who loves One Piece will be very happy with this game.

Tiny Tina

Borderlands is the epitome of insane fun, insane action, and just plain insanity. And nothing shows that more than the latest DLC release of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. The craziest character in any video game ever, now has you at the mercy of her twisted, freaky mind. Roll for initiative suckas!

Bungie releases new Destiny trailer “The Law of the Jungle”

destiny-logo-bungie

The net has been both confused and excited for news on Destiny, the newest title from Bungie. With the trailer released today, there seems to be no fear about how this game will be a hit. A beautifully rendered live-action/CG trailer with almost haunting music ramps up the hype this game has already begun. The game is still clouded in mystery, but now it feels more like a chase, rather than a pause.

Anyway, Resistance made it a point that a purple dragon named Spyro can enter our hearts so easily. Apologies again, that was Spyro the Dragon.
