wish-header-steam

Wish -Tale of the sixteenth night of the lunar moon- is the kinetic visual novel from the doujin developer Migiha. The story revolves around a group of people capable of using a secret energy known as Prana, which has the ability to manipulate objects and do all kinds of magical things. Of course, things are not all as they seem for the main character, Tenka, who has been unable to harness the power of Prana until a chance encounter with his adoptive families cursed katana. The story itself seems to be influenced by Type-Moon’s style of games (think Fate/Stay Night), but with a bit more of a doujin feel to it. Fans of really long kinetic novels may want to … Continue reading

A.O.T / Attack On Titan – Wings of Freedom Review

attack-on-titan-banner

Shingeki no Kyojin – Attack On Titan, if you haven’t heard of it, is one of the largest Japanese anime and manga franchises on the market at the moment. The franchise is about humanity being on the brink of extinction thanks to relentless attacks by a mysterious enemy, known as Titans, for generations. To repel the titans, humanity have built several walls around their territory and have developed some rather unique weaponry that excel in butchering these foes. The A.O.T / Attack On Titan – Wings of Freedom video game follows the storyline of the anime adaptation of the popular manga series, and it somehow is way better than expected. If you’ve seen the anime or read the manga, the … Continue reading

Flowers -Le Volume Sur Printemps- Review

If there is one world to describe Flowers -Le volume sur printemps-, it would be beautiful.

Umbrella Corps Review

umbrella-corps-logo

Note: This review is based on a very limited playthrough of the Umbrella Corps game as there are rarely any players online at the same time to even have a decent go at this title. Umbrella Corps, or BIOHAZARD: Umbrella Corps as it also known as according to Steam, is the latest spin-off game in the Resident Evil/Biohazard franchise from the publisher Capcom. In Umbrella Corps, gamers take on the role of a faceless Umbrella mook that engages in Deathmatch style arena battles to complete objectives against other players. This game makes little sense, and doesn’t really do a good job of trying to do so. It seems like a game that is a justification for more DLC purchases and … Continue reading

Anima: Gate of Memories Review (PlayStation 4)

Anima: Gate of Memories is a Kickstarter project based on the Spanish tabletop RPG Anima: Beyond Fantasy developed by Anima Project. In this action RPG, players control two characters; the Bearer and Ergo, as they attempt to retrieve an artifact known as the Byblos. Despite the ambitions of the development team and their passion to deliver the best product they can, Anima Gate of Memories turns out to be a mediocre experience. While the lore of the world, combined with the decent graphics and sound, turns out to be very creative and combat is surprisingly well thought out, the game suffers from frustrating platforming, a uncooperative camera, a dull narrative and uninteresting characters. In Anima: Gate of Memories, two members … Continue reading

Sonicomi: Communication With Sonico Review

sonicomi-pre-order

Sonicomi is the visual novel and photography simulator developed by Nitroplus+ and published into English by JAST. The title features Nitroplus+’ own mascot character, Super Sonico, as she teams up with the player to become a successful gravure model. Sonicomi, as a visual novel, does a lot of familiar things with the genre, but presents them in a new and interesting manner. Even more, there are some gameplay elements to the story, involving the player actively taking photographs of the character to earn points. As a marketing point, Jessica Nigri stars in the English adaptation of the script, although the original (and preferable) voice actress, Ayano Yamamoto, also takes the mantle of the character in the Japanese voice overs. The … Continue reading

one-small-fire-logo

One Small Fire At A Time is the non-Japanese visual novel developed by Kidalang, and published by Culture Select, about a teenaged girl deemed to be mad and placed in a madhouse.
