428: Shibuya Scramble Review

Living for the City

HIGH Solid writing and intricate ensemble plotting

LOW Fiddly controls for something that could be played on a Kindle…

WTF They made a great adventure game out of meme-worthy stock photos!


Punch Line Review

Neat (Ghost) Trick

HIGH A wild and wacky anime-tinged adventure awaits….

LOW …If you can put up with the constant padding and awkward-as-heck structure

WTF Of all things, why a Punch Line game in 2018?


Utawarerumono: Mask Of Truth Review

A Not-So-Surprisingly Improved Sequel

HIGH The story is more complex this time, and has shed some of the dumb boob jokes.

LOW I feel kinda bad for you, Final Boss, but the Final Fantasy multiphase fight thing really annoys me.

WTF That wasn’t even the final boss?!


VA-11 HALL-A Review

Make It One For My Waifu (And One More For The Road)

HIGH A killer faux-retro aesthetic…

LOW …that sometimes gets in the way of playing the game.

WTF “Is there a chance I *won’t* be serving talking dogs this weekend?”
