Hands-On With NoScope Glasses, Round 3: An Evolving Line of Eyewear

by Josh Boykinon October 1, 2015
UPDATE: The article originally stated that the Gemini model was NoScope’s first metal-framed model, but the Hydra models actually also had a metal frame. According to NoScope, the metal frame from the Hydra was abandoned for the polycarbonate frame because they’re lighter and easier to wear, which is true when comparing those two models! Odds are […]
Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma - Splash

Review | Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma, Volume 1

by Josh Boykinon September 28, 2015
I haven’t played the original Afro Samurai, and I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the original anime. That didn’t stop me from being excited about Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma when I heard about it. A hip-hop infused, swordplay-oriented fightfest is hard to turn down, after all. Or, at least, it should be. […]

Review | Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

by Charlie Grammeron September 27, 2015
Going into Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, I really had no idea what to expect. If I were to judge it based solely on the advertisements and screens widely available that seem to focus on the womens’ breasts, I’d have to say it’s barely a game worth mentioning. I’m not huge into fan service like […]

by Jeffrey Harrison September 27, 2015
Disney Interactive has certainly stumbled onto something significant and magical with Disney Infinity. The toys-to-life genre has really exploded in popularity in recent years.

Review | Persona 4: Dancing All Night

by Josh Boykinon September 22, 2015
The Persona series is definitely ATLUS’ breakout hit, a successful paranormal series that’s spawned multiple spin-offs and sequels including a chibi dungeon crawler for the 3DS and a 2D fighting game for PS3 and XB360. Odds are that if you’re even reading this review, you’ve at least laid hands on most all of the Persona […]

Review | Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

by David Pooleon September 22, 2015
Gaming may not have the largest stable of iconic figures when it comes to those behind the scenes. Shigeru Miyamoto, Cliff Bleszinski, Yuji Naka, etc. Even though it doesn’t have a large list of well known names, some of them still manage to show that video games are art, and they do it in such […]

Review | Grandia 2 Anniversary Edition

by Adam Larckon September 16, 2015
Grandia 2, along with Skies of Arcadia, were the prime RPGs during the Dreamcast era. On the Dreamcast, the games were regarded as classics. For the port of Grandia 2, though, the PS2 and PC versions were lackluster ports, complete with glitches and slowdown. Now, 15 years later, Grandia 2 has been rereleased on the […]
