Review: Samurai Shodown V

It doesn’t seem like that long ago, but it’s actually been a little over three years since I reviewed the last game in the Samurai Shodown series. In the genre of arcade fighting games, Samurai Shodown has always been one of the underdogs here in the west. At first glance, it may be difficult to determine why. After all, the...

Review: Kingdom Hearts

At long last, the time has come for me to review one of the most beloved games of all time, Kingdom Hearts. This is a game that combines the worlds of Final Fantasy with the Disney cartoon universe. If that seems like a rather odd combination, that’s because it is. The two franchises have almost nothing at all to do...

Review: Sakura Spirit

It has become somewhat of a tradition on this site for me to review a “girly game” for Valentine’s Day. When I use the term “girly” I don’t mean something cute and feminine like Hello Kitty or The Unicorn Princess. Instead games like Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball or HuniePop usually end up taking the spotlight. In the past I’ve...

Review: Chrono Trigger

One of the best things about starting this website and tackling my game backlog is being able to play some really amazing games that I missed out on the first time around. Yes, I know it’s considered blasphemy by many, but until I sat down to play it for this review, Chrono Trigger was one of those games. Why is...

Review: Secret of Evermore

What happens if you take a group of rookie game developers from America and task them with making the next big Japanese-style action RPG? The answer is simple; Secret of Evermore. The story behind this game is legendary. Reeling off of the success of Secret of Mana, Squaresoft wanted to release a similar game in the US as quickly as...

Review: Phantasy Star IV – The End of the Millennium

At long last I have completed my playthrough for the final entry in the Phantasy Star series! It took quite a bit longer than I anticipated, but I’m proud to say I have finished Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium and I have plenty of thoughts to share. If you’re a regular reader, you probably know that I’m a...

Review: Blood Omen 2

I tried my best to have this review complete by Halloween, but I fell short by a few days. Despite missing my goal, I’m here with a review for yet another chapter in the Legacy of Kain series, this time with Blood Omen 2. If you’re a bit confused by the variety of sequels this series has to offer, don’t...

Review: Corpse Party

Happy Halloween friends! As many of my long-time readers know, I try to review a scary game in time for Halloween. Typically, I pick a spooky game from whatever backlog era I’m currently working on. For example, in recent years I reviewed Resident Evil 0, Fatal Frame, and Luigi’s Mansion – all games from the GameCube/PS2/Xbox generation. This year, I...
