Tormented Souls

(Note/Warning: Tormented Souls is definitely an adult game with various horror themes; I’ll try to avoid getting too graphic in the pictures or description, but some of it may seep through) Tormented Souls wants to emulate the old third person horror games from the Playstation days, back when the first three Resident Evil games, SilentContinue reading “Tormented Souls”

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne – HD Remaster

I have never played a Shin Megami Tensei game. I have played a few of the spin-off games: both Persona 3 and 4, as well as the two Devil Survivor games that released for the DS, so I am somewhat familiar with a lot of how the Shin Megami Tensei series works. Most importantly, I’mContinue reading “Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne – HD Remaster”

Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure

Rhapsody is one of those games I have a pretty strong memory of going in. I was at Hastings, a sort of regional chain that offered game rentals while also selling various media (CDs, books, games, movies, etc.).

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”

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”

Shinsekai: Into the Depths

After my first hour or so of this game, I wasn’t sure I was going to play further. Oh, the game had plenty of atmosphere by that point. The underwater elements have this ethereal quality to them that make everything feel very much like you’re drifting under a vast ocean. It adds to the feelingContinue reading “Shinsekai: Into the Depths”
