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

You awaken alone in a dark room with a collar wrapped around your neck. Urged on by nothing but a door with a green light, you move forward.

Uriel’s Chasm 2: את Review


What do you get when you mix Touhou, religion, gardening, religion, surfing, religion, Battletoads, and, Rail Slave Games? If you answered with “something bizarre”, you would be correct. If you added: “probably Uriel’s Chasm 2” to the end of that statement, you’d be even more correct. Uriel’s Chasm 2: את (pronounced as et) is the alt-game featuring religious themes by Rail Slave Games. It touches on multiple genres of gameplay and combines elements of those genres into a rather strange sequel to Selfie: Sisters of the Aniotic Lens, Uriel’s Chasm, and N.P.P.D Rush. Interestingly, the game doesn’t seem to tie into the original Uriel’s Chasm as much as you think that it would. Officially, the story of Uriel’s Chasm 2: … Continue reading
