Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth

And the award for the longest, most awkward title I’ve seen in some time is… Seriously though, Wonder Labyrinth here is a pretty good game, though obviously it’s drawing some inspiration from the classic anime that’s directly placed in the title. The game follows the titular Deedlit, who finds herself in the titular Wonder Labyrinth,Continue reading “Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth”

8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure

I did not complete 8Doors. I’m a huge fan of metroidvanias, as anyone who regularly reads these reviews knows. I may have gotten into them a bit late, just a few years ago with Bloodstained, but since then I’ve made a concentrated effort to play just about every metroidvania that gets at least some attention,Continue reading “8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure”

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story

When this game got revealed last November, I got all kinds of excited. Arcane was still pretty fresh in my mind, and I’d be interested in the League of Legends world for a while, due to the fandom making a lot of material around that particular world. On top of that, I’d played developer AirshipContinue reading “Ruined King: A League of Legends Story”

Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers – Fun Film, Mixed Message

Like many a nostalgic cartoon viewer, I had mixed feelings after seeing all the trailers for the Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers film. I hadn’t exactly grown up watching the Disney Afternoon (I was a Turtles and X-Men kid), but I do recall what those shows were like. I’d also watched them fairly recently, havingContinue reading “Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers – Fun Film, Mixed Message”

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest

I don’t know about most people, but the first thing I notice about this game is its incredibly fun title. It’s hardly surprising, given that this came out during the height of Rare’s glory in 1995. DKC2: DKQ here is the sequel to the pretty big hit Donkey Kong Country that came out in 1994,Continue reading “Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest”

Kirby: Super Star Saga

If you check the Nintendo Online account right now, you’ll find that Kirby: Super Star Saga, happens to be this month’s mission. That works quite well for me, as it happens to be one of the retro titles I’ve played recently while I was waiting for sales (they have now happened and new games shouldContinue reading “Kirby: Super Star Saga”

Nine Parchments

It’s a little hard to categorize Nine Parchments. In this game, you control one of several possible apprentice wizards who are aiming to get their Nine Parchments, because once they collect them and seal them in their spellbooks, they become fully fledged wizards. Due to some magical mishap, the parchments have been scattered throughout theContinue reading “Nine Parchments”
