Live A Live – Review

I would bet that every gamer has at least one blind spot in terms of influential games that they have either missed or just never got around to playing. Maybe, it’s several games you missed, multiple protagonists that you never got a chance to connect with. In the case of

Kao The Kangaroo – Review

I think somewhere in our storied gaming history, every one of us grew up with a favorite gaming mascot. Some stand-outs would have to be Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, Spyro, or Banjo Kazooie, while lesser, yet still formidable known heroes such as Gex or Croc, made a short but sweet appearance

Pretty Girls Rivers – Review

It is always a good sign when a game has a pure fiction statement and a clarification the characters are over 18 warning at the start. Which is ironic really as ‘Pretty Girls Rivers’ developed by eastasiasoft and ZOO Corporation actually has no plot to actually talk of. The game

Dodgeball Academia – Review

Now, ‘Dodgeball Academia’ by Pocket Trap and Ivan Freire is certainly one of the more unique games I have played in a while. Who would have thought a sports game and an RPG would have smashed together so fluidly? Not me, that’s for sure. You play as our hero, Otto,
