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.

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.

sony

Yesterday Sony, after a month of hype, announced the new PS4 is coming this year! To many Sony fans, this is the biggest announcement of their gaming lives! Many are ready to be first in line at the Sony booth to try out the new PS4 this June at the Electronic Gaming Expo.

But what is it that everyone is missing? When news sounds too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true. For example, the PlayStation Vita was going to be the second coming. An amazing launch line up, High powered specs, beautiful design, etc. But in the end the price of the System and accessories destroyed sales, and the games released after launch were lacking. Even a year later Sony is still trying to pick up the pieces and find out what they did wrong with the vita. At the recent Sony event, it was announced that the Vita would be able to stream PS4 games, in yet another late attempt to make the Vita look appealing to consumers. That is what the Vita has had to deal with because of its outrageous price!
