Beneath a Steel Sky
This was one of the games that made me actively search for, and try to play, every point-and-click game out there. When I first played this, about a year ago, I wasn’t expecting it to be as fun as it was. Beneath a Steel Sky is a 1994 cyberpunk point-and-click adventure game where you play as Foster, who is kidnapped and taken to Union city where he manages to escape. As Foster tries to...
The Path, horror Red Riding Hood
I really enjoy when someone takes a simple fairy tale and makes something interesting out of it, a movie, a book, a video game, anything. No, I’m not talking about the Hansel and Gretel movie, I’m talking about The Path. [The various red riding hoods(from left to right: Ginger, Rose, Scarlet, Ruby, Robin and Carmen).] The Path is an horror game based on the Little Red Riding Hood,...
Mad Father and other RPGMaker games
For some reason it is really hard to find good RPGMaker(or Wolf RPG) games, most people using that engine don’t even use original sprites or music, but I heard there were a few worth playing and that’s what I did. The games I’ve played were: Mad Father, The Witch’s House, Ib and Misao,you can find them here. I was going to write a review of Mad Father here but these games...
Let's Talk About: DmC and the new Dante
I just finished playing Devil May Cry, on my quest to experience the games I missed on the old PS2, and having played Devil May Cry 3 as well, I can clearly see why people are upset about Dante’s new look. I’m sure Ninja Theory knew the reaction to the change would be bad, I just wonder if it is ever a good thing to make such a drastic change to something that was never broken to begin...
Sword & Sworcery EP
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a point-and-click adventure game but it is a lot more than that. The game is presented to you in four sessions in between which you are advised to take a break and when you come back a narrator will tell you what happened in the previous session and prepares you for the next. This is the story of a lonely warrior, a Scythian, that travels to a place near...
More JRPGs on PC? Yes please!
Ghostlight, a publisher that focuses on JRPG localization(like Persona 3 Portable and Fate/EXTRA for PSP), announced over a week ago that they plan to bring JRPGs to PC. Apparently the reaction was so good that they are thinking about making physical collector’s editions as well. This is great news, if you ever tried to find JRPGs for PC you probably didn’t find much because they are...
OUYA seems to be the newest thing on kickstarter, a low price home console that wants to bring Android games to your tv. I’m not very good with the technical stuff but if you want to check the specs and other details go to their kickstarter page. I’m not going to put my money on this for the simple reason that I’m kinda broke but I really like the idea of having a console...
