Review: Bloodstained – Curse of the Moon 2

By now, everyone has heard of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I posted a review for the modern day Castlevania clone a little over a year ago. And despite a somewhat rough launch, the game was largely successful. Like many, I fully expected that sooner of later we’d receive news of a Bloodstained sequel. Much to my surprise, the developers...

Review: Contra – Hard Corps

Completing my foray into the Contra Anniversary Collection, I’m excited to finally share my review of the elusive fan favorite, Contra – Hard Corps! This is a game that many players know by reputation only. Originally released on the Sega Genesis, Contra – Hard Corps is a game that flew under the radar for many fans of the main series....

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

As I mentioned in some of my more recent posts, lately there’s been a rise in popularity for retro game collections. It could be argued that Capcom started this trend with the release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection. This was soon followed by another classic bundle of games, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. In a few months, I’ll...

Blood: Fresh Supply

Like I mentioned in my last post, it seems that remasters and re-releases of classic games are showing up every time you turn around. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining one bit. There’s so many wonderful games from yesteryear that modern players have never experienced. This trend of modernizing retro games and introducing them to a new audience...

Castlevania Anniversary Collection

These days, it seems that retro games are all the rage. The last few years have seen countless collections and remasters of classic gaming titles. For example, I recently reviewed the SEGA AGES version of Phantasy Star, a modern presentation of an 80’s-era RPG. Some other recent compilations that come to mind are the Mega Man Legacy Collection, the Street...

Review: Bloodstained – Curse of the Moon

It’s been three years since¬†Koji Igarashi (or IGA, as he tends to be called) unveiled his plans for “Sword or Whip?” – the spiritual successor for the Castlevania franchise. Since that time, the game has been given a proper name; Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The game itself is still in development with a release date scheduled for later this...

Review: Deep Space Waifu

It’s Valentine’s Day! And I’ve decided to start a new tradition on this blog. A few years back, I posted a Valentine’s Day review of a flirty little game called Hunie Pop. I did this as sort of a one-off joke. But due to the recent upswing in indie H-games on Steam and the fact that all of my friends...

Review: Doki Doki Literature Club

The October tradition of horror game reviews continues! This time I’m taking a short break from the PSX era games to review a modern title: Doki Doki Literature Club… Wait. That doesn’t sound like a horror game! It certainly doesn’t look like one either. Well… it’s not. At least not in the traditional sense. There’s no jump scares, zombies, horrifying...

Review: Thief II – The Metal Age

Again, I want to apologize for the long hiatus between game reviews, but I’m back now and continuing my “turn of the century” playthroughs. Today I give you my long-awaited review of Thief II: The Metal Age. I discussed the original Thief more than three years ago, in anticipation of the Square-Enix reboot. But it took me this long to...
