The success of the “Zero Escape” series has spawned a wide range visual novels to be translated and brought over to the west, with each one trying to stand out from the crowd with their unique features and whacky characters.

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?

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.

Dragons Crown Review

image003

Dragons Crown is the latest magical adventure from Vanillaware. And while the game looks pretty, the lackluster gameplay and overall lack of interesting things to do in the game makes Dragons Crown feel like a low budget beat ‘em up.

Spelunky PC video review

Spelunky

Spelunky was recently released on PC. After playing for hours on end, Milo has lovingly put his impressions of the game into a nice little video for all to enjoy.

Thomas Was Alone review

Thomas Was Alone

Thomas Was Alone is a simplistic and charming indie game with a distinctive concept. The story is based on a range of shapes with unique personalities that all behave differently. The shapes all have their own names but don’t talk, instead the game is narrated throughout.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Review

220px-Lego_Lord_of_the_Rings_cover
Anyone who is a fan of the LEGO video games knows they are a decent puzzle plat-former. The games are aimed towards the younger generations, targeting children to young teens. Built around this premise, the objectives are straight forward and easily highlighted. The games are put together well, the controls handle nicely for the most part, and the formula stays pretty consistent throughout the games. Unfortunately, that consistency is what is slowly killing the franchise. With practically no innovation, the games are becoming a stale repetition with a setting and character roster change. The games may be advertised for kids, but there are a large amount of casual players that make up those sales figures. Eventually, the continuous use of that mediocre formula will simply cause the games to flop, and the time will come when relying on the low expectations of the consumer will be the end of the LEGO series.

Sound Shapes review

sound-shapes-logo

Sound Shapes is PSVita’s newest gem. The downloadable music-making 2D platformer by Queasy Games is a unique and refreshing take on the music genre, and an excellent addition to Playstation’s Play, Create, Share collection.

Canabalt review

CanabaltTitle

In Canabalt aliens have invaded earth and the destruction of human civilization is their clear desire. You play as an anonymous man in a black suit who has only one objective: to run for his life.

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a PSN mini title. This game attempts to create a good interpretation of a prehistoric hunting experience. Let’s see how well it holds up.

Enigmo is one sturdy and straightforward puzzle game made for the PSP, PS3, and PS Vita offering many puzzles with liquid physics. For only $3.99 USD, this graphically 3D puzzler will offer many ways for you to complete each level and enjoy yourself while you do so.

Star Drone Extreme review

sd1

Star Drone Extreme is a touch based space arcade game. Star Drone was released for the Vita and is probably most comparable to Super Stardust Delta though it is more governed as you play. Is this $4 addicting game worth the time?

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection review (PSV)

MGSvitaboxartengls

 

With the release of Metal Gear Solid HD for the Playstation 3 many of those who missed the PS2 outings finally have a chance to see what all the craze is about.  Those who already played those get to re-play them in hi-def at 60 frames per second.  The Metal Gear games always looked great on their respective consoles.  Its safe to say those old PS2 graphics hold up well to today’s standards when plumped into an HD resolution.  Just recently alongside the release of Gravity Rush, Konami released the Metal Gear Solid HD remake for the PlayStation Vita.  As a high population knows by now the games are good.  But how do the controls and style of the game translate to Vita?  Read on to find out

Gravity Rush review

One of the best Vita games to date and a note-worthy fighting game of today is Mortal Kombat for the Vita. Also known as Mortal Kombat 9, this close replica of the console version continues where MK: Armageddon left off.

Get those extra thumbs sewn on, you’ll need them.

SumiOni: Demon Arts Review

demon

As Many of you should know, we at PS-analog have a love for artistic design.  A couple of games come to mind when we think “a painting come to life”.  Games like Okami and Valkyria Chronicles, and of course God of War III (according to Our friend Jaffe) had a hand drawn or brush painted type of look to it.  With the release of SumiOni: Demon Arts exclusively for the Playstation Vita, we seem to have another game to add to that list.

MotorStorm RC Review

msrc

This isn’t MotorStorm at heart but still the same quality. We’ve booted up both the PSV & PS3 version and they are remarkably similar.
