Tokyo Babel Review

tokyo-babel-logo

Tokyo Babel is a rather interesting Visual Novel developed by Propeller and published by MangaGamer. The story follows an artificial human named Tendou Setsuna and a small team consisting of an Angel, a Demon and a regular Human as they traverse Tokyo Babel in an attempt to reach Heaven and come face-to-face with God. The story borrows a lot from Biblical stories, as well as some themes invented by Dante in the famous Inferno stories, and then throwing a layer of Japanese complexity and a whole lot of anime-esque storytelling to the mix. The end result is a game that is fun from beginning to end, while still maintaining a sense of mystery and even sometimes, horror. The story begins … Continue reading

DOOM Open Beta Impressions – The DOOM of a Franchise

trash

Note: This impression is based on the Open Beta of DOOM which is multiplayer only.

Thanks to how heavily marketed this game is (we seriously have advertisements in train stations near where I live for this game), it’s … Continue reading

Tokyo ESP Review

tokyo-esp-box-art

Coming up with something to say about Tokyo ESP to accurately convey what this series is has been tough. It’s not that it’s a bad series, or a forgettable one, it’s just that it is really hard to talk about. And so, in trying to define what Tokyo ESP is, I’ve come to the conclusion that the series can only really be described as one way. Tokyo ESP is pretty much X-Men, if it was written to include a bunch of different anime tropes. Also, if it was starring an anime girl, Wolverine became Magneto and Professor X was the bad guy. Tokyo ESP starts off in a really dramatic way that slowly builds your interest from completely disinterested to … Continue reading
