Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure – Review

Read review of GuruminCute, sweet, and to-the-point, Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure is a brand-new franchise from the minds behind such old-school classics as Ys, Popful Mail, and Brandish. Falcom clearly still has what it takes-I'd even say that their latest is my favorite Falcom effort ever, and easily one of the best PSP games available, bar none.

Gungrave: Overdose – Second Opinion

Well, I certainly feel like a jackass. The first GunGrave was simple stuff, but it had a kind of low-rent charm.

Gungrave: Overdose – Review

Overdose has a whopping total of two positives going for it: the anime cutscenes are still nice (which is to be expected since the game's spawned an anime series of its own) and the main theme of the game (which returns from the first title) still kicks butt. It's a shame that such a badass theme is wasted on such a mediocre title.
