Darren-Kun’s Magical GungHo Adventure!

 

Sometimes, good things just sort of land in your lap.

You might be walking down the street and see a dollar just laying in your path. Maybe a barista asks if you’d like a drink for free that she made and nobody wanted. Other times, it might be something more substantial, like visiting a foreign land to attend a game convention and getting to interview some of the most important and well-recognized names in the Japanese games industry.

In my case, that last one is exactly what happened to me.


Persona 5 Review

Youth In Revolt

HIGH Fixing the laptop results in a wonderful surprise.

LOW Certain sequences drag on for way, way too long.

WTF I’ll go to bed when I bloody well feel like it, Morgana.


Toukiden 2 Review

 Slayin’ Alive

HIGH Locking a boss in place and shredding it to bits with the chain whip.

LOW The awkward approach to multiplayer remains largely unchanged.

WTF Double amnesia? At least they poke fun at it…


Yakuza 0 Review

Meeting Old Friends For The First Time

HIGH Putting a chicken in charge of a high-profile financial district.

The King of Fighters XIV review

It’s Good To Be King

KOFXV

HIGH Oni Hanmon Level 2 > Climax Cancel > Raging Storm.

LOW It’s looking better than before, but could still use more graphical flourishes.

Gravity Rush 2 Review

Forever Falling Upwards

 

HIGH The gravity shifting mechanic never, ever gets old.

LOW The escort and stealth missions are downright archaic.
