The Dig is a notable game not just for its story of exploration of alien worlds and beautiful visuals, but also because of the story behind how it got made. This is that story, 6 years of development, 4 project leads, Hollywood director and all.

If you were to ask me, in 1998, what some of my favorite things were The X-Files and FMV would surely come up. So when this game released it was the number one thing on my Christmas list. I loved following the extraterrestrial adventures of Scully and Mulder. Though this game doesn't let you play as them it makes you feel like them. The supporting characters are all there and you even get a partner to question all your decisions.

Does The X-Files game succeed as a playable episode of the show? Watch to find out.

Posted under ps2, demon stone, review


I wish I had liked this game more than I did, because everything but the gameplay is really fun and enjoyable. I wonder what was going on over at Stormfront Studios that made them drop the ball when it came to the gameplay for Demon Stone. The Two Towers was a great mix of linear levels and big setpieces, with responsive and satisfying combat. Then they took out a lot of the good parts and gave us this game.

If you have ever been playing a Call of Duty game and thought "I wish I could just whip out a katana and slash through these fools up close!" then boy do I have a game for you! Devil's Third is an obscure title only available on the ill-fated Wii U, but fans of schlocky action games should take note.

Jackie Chan has starred in a few video games over the years. After Hudson Soft purchased the licence to use his likeness, they released Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu on NES.

Sine Mora was developed by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture and first released in 2012. In 2017 an extended version was released which is available on PC, PS4, Switch and XBox One. It is a horizontal 2.5D shooter, which means the plane you control moves on 2 axes, while the backgrounds are 3D. The game has gorgeous environments, uses some novel time-based mechanics and has a heavy focus on story. However, I found a heavy story in a scrolling shooter wasn't that welcome of a feature. Check out the video for more.

Posted under Sakura Wars, ps2, strategy games, review


Its here! A game I wanted to play for a long time, and I'm glad I did! I felt good after playing this. Haven't played a game that just made me feel good since Stardew Valley came out. And although I feel good, I also feel sad because we never got more Sakura Wars games, because this one didn't sell well enough. However, we got a new one coming in the near future, but I'm not sure if its going to make its way over here. Back when this game came out, visual novels and strategy RPGs weren't as popular in the West, and a game like this, which is five games into an established franchise, were doomed to fail. And that's a tragedy. We're getting a new Sakura Wars game in the near future, and I hope it does well and makes its way over here, so that we can get more of this positive energy in this gaming culture.

Resident Evil fans have been clamoring for a remake of the series' second entry ever since the excellent remake of the initial title. What seemed like a pipe dream for years was finally announced back in 2015, but many fans were skeptical at this point due to the direction the series had been going around this time. Although the positive response to Resident Evil 7 help assuage fears, early footage of the Resident Evil 2 remake still resembled the 'action-horror' titles that are oft maligned. I am glad to say that any fears were unfounded, and Capcom delivered what I feel is the best remake of their survival horror classic that they could have possibly made.

** Note: In an attempt to discuss all relevant gameplay mechanics, some mild story spoilers may be included. **

I was very excited to learn about the new Dororo anime. I was even more excited to find out that I would have enough time to put out a review of Blood Will Tell before it came out. Well, it's a day late, but it's close enough.

Summer Carnival '92 RECCA is an impressive shoot'em up. As I played it, I wanted to know more about the Summer Caravan that spawned it. So here's a bit about summer gaming competitions, including Hudson Soft's All-Japan Summer Carnival and Naxat's Summer Caravan. Plus a review of RECCA.

I recently acquired a massive Playstation VR package in a mammoth trade with our very own Disposed Hero. You may recall from our podcast my initial excitement at PSVR being announced and my further excitement after actually trying it out at a friend's house. The steep cost of the add-on kept me from procuring one earlier, as did some apprehension about playing games in VR for prolonged periods of time. Would VR games just be gimmicky, short experiences, leaving me in a situation where I wouldn't feel like mustering the energy to set up and put the helmet on every time I want to play it? Or, is it possible to take deep, lengthy dives into more meaningful experiences like the ones I cherish on conventional platforms like televisions or handheld devices?

Posted under Review, Silent Hill, Konami, Survival horror


While I have always been a huge fan of the survival horror genre, when it comes to the Silent Hill series, I have generally played it safe and stuck to the first three titles which are almost unanimously praised. Although many of the later Silent Hill games are almost universally disliked by fans, the fourth entry is probably the most divisive title in the series, with a seemingly equal number of people who either love or hate the game. After playing it for myself, it is easy to see why opinions are so mixed, as I too had a sort of love/hate relationship with it. Good or bad, it is definitely one of the most interesting games I have played in a long time.

** Note: Due to the nature of the game, it is impossible to discuss all pertinent gameplay mechanics without giving away some mid-game spoilers, although I will try to keep things as vague as possible. **

Hey gang! It happens every once in a while that no particular topic lights a fire in me for my monthly front page entry. I haven't begun work on my next Black Mirror episode review and I don't want to rush it. So as I have done in the past, here is a more traditional "blog" entry for this autumnal equinox, with just a few things that have been in my orbit lately. Thank you as always for your support!

As I mentioned in my article last month, we often like to search for hidden gems to add to our collections and eventually play if or when we finally get around to it. Sometimes, as was the case last month with Robotrek, we find a game that we feel is better left hidden and come away disappointed. Other times, as is the case this month with Skyblazer, we feel as if we have struck gold.

Posted under PS2, Fullmetal Alchemist, review


I'm back at it again with a review of some beat em ups from my favorite anime, Fullmetal Alchemist. I first watched it probably back in middle school with the original series, and didn't finish Brotherhood until college. The action is sweet, I love how alchemy makes sense in the world and is explained by science, and all the characters are great. I really like Greed, if you can't tell from the video.

Anyway, on to the review...
