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: Doom 64

This is a review I didn’t think I’d ever get the chance to write. But thanks to the recent release of Doom Eternal, Id Software has re-released the most elusive entry in the Doom franchise; Doom 64.

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...

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...

After this review, I will be taking a short break from my “generational-backlog grind” and I’ll be focusing on a couple of fun projects.

Review: Forsaken (Remastered)

  Wow. Here’s a game I never expected to review, Forsaken. That’s right, out of nowhere, this classic title has been remastered and is now available to a whole new generation of gamers. Forsaken was a game that I actually enjoyed in my younger days. A friend and I both owned the PC version. And together, we spent many hours blasting...

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...
