Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning Review [Adult Content Warning]

There are times where, after a long day at work, the only thought flooding your mind is to sit down in a nice chair, grab the controller (or keyboard and mouse) and just enjoy some video gaming R&R. Sometimes, a visual novel is all it takes to wind you down. In order to experience such a feeling, there must be a compelling story, with interesting characters and excellent dialogue and writing. Beautiful visuals and an inspiring soundtrack are also a must. For Gakhthun of the Golden Lightning, written by Sakurai Hikaru, developed by Lair Soft and published in English by MangaGamer, it seems it’s a big mash up of great moments mixed in with dull and boring moments. The writing … Continue reading

Tim Schafer Apologises For Remarks About #GamerGate and #NotYourShield


Or at least that’s how we would like this headline to read. A couple of days ago, Tim Schafer was host to an AMA, or Ask Me Anything, over on Reddit. In this AMA, a user named AnotonioOfVenice had asked a question to Tim Schafer asking about if he regretted attacking women and minorities in a joke made at last years CDC. Do you regret the way you attacked and mocked women and minorities with your sockpuppet? The developer responds claiming that he did not attack women and minorities at all and was only making implications that the people using the #gamergate and #notyourshield hashtags were known to be sockpuppets. Or at least, that’s the interpretation that I came out … Continue reading

Persona 4 The Golden Animation Review

If you’re expecting the full Persona 4 story repackaged with extra content, then this isn’t what you’re looking for. Instead, it is purely focused on the content found in Persona 4 Golden, focusing on the social links of new character Marie and adding extra character development to Tohru Adachi, Dojima’s assistant/lackey. It also includes episodes based on scenes only found in the Vita port of the original game Persona 4 Golden. Despite the disjointed nature of the narrative and a few problems of Marie’s character, this was a enjoyable anime series to watch. The nice art style, character design and voice acting really added to an enjoyable experience. The extra character development to Adachi also provides a more complex layer … Continue reading

The Play-Asia DOAX3 Salt-Mine Provides Much Insight


Earlier, we released an article where Play-Asia ( had suggested that the reason Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 was not being localised was because of “SJW nonsense”. While we personally probably wouldn’t have run that particular tweet in such tough terms ourselves, seeing another company do this has provided a tonne of insight into the western gaming news reporting and PR sphere. In particular, the views of the people within them. Below, I have accumulated a representative portion of people within gaming development, PR, journalism, as well as some technical people that appear important. I’ll let their own words speak for themselves. We do not support or condone the views of the people linked below. They represent themselves and their … Continue reading
