Game Review – Ryu Ga Gotoku Kiwami (PS3/PS4)

I’m not a particular fan of GTA-esque games, but I love the Yakuza series for some reason. I believe it is closer to be a Shenmue clone than a Rockstar-style Open-World game, since there’re billions of things to do at each corner of Kamurochou. This remake greatly expands this experience, while also giving a huge upgrade to the game in general. Truly a must-play for any fan of the Yakuza series. Sadly, this game is likely to never get a western release, much like most spin-offs in the series. That’s a shame, really, since this is already one of my favorite games of 2016!

Game Review – Ukiyo no Shishi & Ukiyo no Roushi (PS3/PS Vita)

Ever since Spike fused with Chunsoft to form Spike Chunsoft, the Way of Samurai – developed by Acquire – didn’t get anything new to its series, aside from a re-release of the 4th game on Steam. However, it seems SpikeChunsoft, that was only the publisher of the franchise, is trying create some sort of spiritual successor with their own crazy Bakumatsu re-imagining. Is it a good equivalent to the Samurai-action title by Acquire? Spoilers: No, it isn’t! Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean it’s a bad game!

Game Review – Exist Archive (PS Vita/PS4)

What do you get when you cross a Minotaur with a Valkyrie? The answer is: Exist Archive! A ultra colorful RPG by tri-Ace and the character designer from Love Plus! It looks exciting, stylish, cute, badass and even a bit dark! But the truth is that this game may be very different from all those first impressions!

Game Review – Steins;Gate 0 (PS Vita/PS3/PS4)

Steins;Gate 0 was advertised as the true-sequel to the original Steins;Gate story-line, which is a huge lie, but it’s still a fascinating read that reveals many secrets behind the complicated plot in the first installment. It’s also interesting to note that this is actually an adaptation of a light novel series, because when it’s about Visual Novels and adaptations, it’s usually the other way around. But, not to worry! There is an anime adaptation coming soon, which will restore the balance in the Visual Novel realm! But for now: Here’s the video game version!
