JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven_20160717155659

Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes Of Heaven.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure for the longest time has been one of the more obscure Shonen Jump manga. It’s only been in the recent years, with the anime adaptation the franchise has seen a rise in popularity. When it comes to games there aren’t that many Jojo games out there. But now the world is one Jojo game richer. Does it manage to stand proud among the plethora of Namco Bandai’s anime 3d arena fighters or is the game actually the work of an enemy stand?

Review: Monster Hunter: Generations

Eleven years ago, I first ventured into the world of Monster Hunter. A chance encounter at our local game store. Fifteen years old me, with €5 in my pocket, rifling through the used games, stumbling upon a PS2 case that had a man with a giant blade fighting a dragon. I thought it looked cool and picked it up, I mean, €5 isn’t that much right?

Review: Song of the Deep

It’s not hard to recognize an Insomniac Games title. The characters are over the top and the weaponry is just as unique as the setting. With games such as Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive, the developer showed us what the team is capable of. Song of the Deep is a completely new experience and some might even say it’s not an Insomniac Games product. It certainly offers a different and fresh experience but the game comes with some flaws.

Indie Corner: Inside

Back in 2011, the independent studio Playdead released the puzzle-platformer Limbo. The game stood out with its unique, monochrome graphics and the lack of unnecessary audio. It all added to the success of Limbo. Now, in 2016, they try it again with Inside.

Indie Corner: DrinkBox Vita Collection

DrinkBox Studios has been active the last couple of years as one of the more popular Indie developers. With games as Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, Guacamelee! and Severed, the studio made some great games. Now, a new bundle appeared on PS Vita, combining these three iconic games into one package. It’s by far the best deal of the moment, let us explain why.

Review: Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs-Force

Bandai Namco is doing it again, it’s bringing one of the most popular Japanese games to the West. It’s been a while since gamers could enjoy a new Gundam game but due to the success of the last Extreme VS. games, Bandai Namco decided to bring yet another installment to the West. It’s out now for PlayStation Vita but it isn’t the best we’ve seen from the franchise, to be honest.

Indie Corner: Dual Core (Wii U)

The twin-stick shooter is a very popular genre amongst independent developers. Dual Core is yet another twin-stick shooter, played with an isometric camera this time, that landed on Wii U. The real question is of course if this game is any different from the other twin-stick shooters on the virtual market. Time to find out in this new Indie Corner!

Special: Pokéfever in 2016 – Part 2

“Half of my high school classmates are getting married and having kids and the other half are out chasing Pokemon. What a time to be alive…” @Sarcasm_only

This is one of the few Pokemon Go texts related to this new and yet nostalgic phenomenon that we’re dealing with in 2016. A lot of older gamers had the privilege to live in a time where the term “Pokemon” released to the public and it was such an amazing experience to be part of it. This “feeling” has returned to the year 2016. What is Nintendo doing to this world?
