Marco & The Galaxy Dragon wasn’t on my radar when it was initially released this past Spring. However, it was available for review at a time when I was craving a good visual novel. Sadly, this one didn’t hit the spot, failing to capture my attention in a good way. Will it resonate with you? …

Published on August 7th, 2022 by Natan C.

Humans are naturally curious creatures. If there’s any mystery, we want to solve it. If any part of our planet is uncharted, it should be mapped out as soon as possible. Sadly, not all discoveries are pleasant, nor eye-opening. If a chemist discovers something, it’s celebrated; if a biologist or adventurer discovers something, it might …

Published on August 7th, 2022 by Kierra Lanier

Many Pokémon fans may say they have a love-hate relationship with the franchise (some people leaning more to one side than the other). As charming as the series is, before the announcement of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it does suffer from maintaining the status quo. Promising to be a complete turn from the mainline games, the world …

While the days of every major animated film having a tie-in video game may be over, there are still quite a few franchises that expand beyond their initial medium and elbow their way into the world of video games, for better or for worse.

Boreal Tenebrae Review (Nintendo Switch)

Published on June 17th, 2022 by Natan C.

The 90s were truly a magical time. The world breathed a collective sigh of relief in the West when the Berlin Wall came down. A lot of media was created in this relatively peaceful era. People who grew up in that decade often look back fondly on that era of entertainment, especially with technology exploding, …

Kirby and the Forgotten Land Review (Nintendo Switch)

Published on June 13th, 2022 by Dan H.

To say that Kirby’s transition to the 3D space has been a slow one would be a massive understatement. The pink puffball has been running, jumping, and floating from left to right for 30 years now. While many famous video game mascots made their jump to three-dimensional worlds in the fifth console generation, Kirby stayed …

Published on June 12th, 2022 by Kierra Lanier

In a lot of anime and manga related media, there are plenty of staples that come as no surprise to fans. Whether it’s hot springs or panty shots, certain moments just get a shrug since they’re the norm. Sakura Succubus 4 decides to transport us right back to a location we previously went to in …

Lost Words: Beyond the Page Review (Nintendo Switch)

Published on June 7th, 2022 by Trevor Gould

Heavy on narrative, Lost Words: Beyond the Page is a game that ultimately succeeds and fails on the strength of its plot. Some will find its story stimulating, with a dual point of view. Others, like myself, will find it cliched and predictable. This alienation is a shame, as the ideas are sound, and the …
