Detroit Become Human PS4 Review

Detroit Become Human is Quantic Dream's best game yet. From the stunning visuals, excellent voice acting and music score, emotional and engaging story, and gameplay that puts the player in full control of the lives and deaths of their characters, Detroit Become Human is one of the best games available on the PS4. Details: Title: Detroit Become Human Developer: Quantic Dream Platform: Playstation 4 Exclusive Genre: Visual Novel / Interactive Fiction / Interactive Movie Where to Buy: Amazon Geeky: 5/5 - The topic of androids is one that is fascinating to me. I think many other geeks are also fascinated by the thought of robotic humans and what would happen if those robots became self aware. From films such as Robot Cop to Bicentenial Man, or the science fiction works of

The Best Upcoming & New Release 2018 PC Games for Girls

Back in the 90s I barely played PC Games, because so few existed that appealed to my tastes. There were exceptions of course, Torment, Fallout 1 and 2, Baulder's Gate, Icewind Dale, King's Quest (and other Sierra titles), Ever 17 (and anything else by Hirameki International), Petz, Black and White, Creatures, Graduation 95, and a handful of other gems that weren't available on my consoles. But largely, console gaming was the highlight of my childhood. That's where all the anime games or JRPGs or story rich games were, especially in the 16 and 32 bit eras, which still remain my favorite gaming period of all time. Genesis, Sega CD, SNES, Saturn, PS1, PS2, and Dreamcast, the majority of my favorite games, still to this day, lived on one of those great consoles. But nowadays, I barely pl...

Please Save My Earth Anime and Manga Review

Today I'm reviewing a very old manga / anime which is often credited as being (one of) the first (widely successful) Shoujo manga. Its art and story influenced other mangaka like Naoko Takeuchi - In fact there are many similarities between Please Save My Earth and Sailor Moon. For example, both Please Save My Earth and Sailor Moon deal with lovers who were reincarnated on another planet having lost memories of their past lives and fated to meet again and remember sometimes happy, sometimes painful and sad memories. Both manga also focus heavily especially on the Earth and the Moon. There's super powers in each one, and tales of friendship, betrayal, trust, love, jealousy, greed, and bullying. Please Save My Earth is quite a bit darker than Sailor Moon. It's more violent, it deals wit...

Kimi No Na Wa – Your Name – Makoto Shinkai – 2016 Anime Full Length Featured Film Movie Review

I just got done watching Kimi No Na Wa, this year's record breaking summer box office smash that is still topping the charts for almost 3 months now in Japan. The film is directed by Makoto Shinkai who also made anime such as 5cm per second and voices of a distant star. All of his works follow a common theme of fated lovers who are separated by either distance or time. And Kimi No Na Wa is no exception to this overarching theme throughout his works. What is a slight departure from his previous works is the use of several vocal tracks throughout this film - Maybe this is the new hot trend in feature length anime films in Japan right now? Because "I've Always Liked You - Confess Your Love Committee" (which I reviewed here) also has about a half dozen vocal tracks. - Kimi no na wa ha...

Talos Principle Game Review

Title: Talos Principle Release Date: 2014 Genre: Puzzle Solving Developer: Croteam Publisher: Devolver Digital Platform: PC, Mac, or Linux, also available on PS4 and Android Where to Buy:   Geeky: 5/5  Sweetie: 4/5  Concept: 8/10 Many people have compared this game to Myst, but not me. In my opinion, this game is much closer to Portal than it will ever be to Myst. The nature of the puzzles, at least in the first many, many hours of the game bears a striking resemblance to the gameplay in Portal. It's also these early hours in which I feel the game begins to fall apart, because the puzzles become so much the "same" throughout the first several "worlds" that you explore. However, looking past the often tedious gameplay, this game has a truly amazing story, especially

Orange Manga Review + Crunchyroll Begins Airing Orange Anime Based on the Manga by Ichigo Takano

I'm not as big of a reader as I used to be when I was younger, however, the last few seasons of anime have not held much to capture my interests, and being single again I find myself with too much spare time. So this past year I've been reading a lot of manga! One of my favorites, which is available to read for free on Crunchyroll, is "Orange" -- and a few days ago Crunchyroll announced they will be simul-casting the new anime based on the manga as well! I thought that makes it a good time to share my love of this series. I'm so excited about the anime adaptation! This review is for the manga version :) There may be some slight spoiler for the first volume - I have tried to avoid them and keep this as brief and condensed as possible but if you're worried, I'd recommend reading or watching

CrunchyRoll Announces New Anime Violet Ever Garden Details and Trailer

Check out the new trailer for Violet Ever Garden. https://youtu.be/0CJeDetA45Q I am so excited for this! (and isn't the opening theme awesome too? And look how cute she is - and just OMG. Geeking out right now so bad lol.) I had never heard of it, until I saw the trailer on CrunchyRoll's Facebook page. From the comments on the facebook wall and the official website at http://www.kyotoanimation.co.jp/books/violet/ this anime is about Artificial Intelligence / AI / Robots / Robotics - Similar to Chobits, Time of Eve, Metropolis, HAL, and Plastic Memories. - All favorites of mine - I am fascinated by the concept of humanoid AI creatures - especially those who have feelings, or what we would classify as feelings - and how they would fit into society. It might also be quite similar to Teg

Ever17 The Out of Infinity Visual Novel PC Game Review

Ever17 is probably my all time favorite visual novel. It was one of the first that I had played, and the story is so good. It's not your typical "dating" or "romance" novel. It's a very thrilling and suspenseful tale about a group of young people trapped in an underwater theme park. They are running out of oxygen, and worse yet, the computer systems are failing which is causing the pressure inside the ship to build, causing leaks. They're also running out of fresh food and water. Strange things also begin happening aboard the ship. Some characters resign themselves to their doomed fates, while others will do whatever it takes to survive. I've referenced this game in many of my other reviews, most notably, my review of Stein's Gate (which you can check out here.) The reason for that is bec

Erased – Anime Review

Erased is pretty much THE anime of 2016. I'm sure you have probably at least heard of it, if not watched it yourself even. I really enjoyed this anime despite it being so predictable that I knew who the killer was by the 2nd or 3rd episode. -- Don't worry I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen it yet (or haven't figured it out themselves). Erased has awesome music and a neat time-travel theme. Are you sad that Erased is over? I highly recommend that you check out Re:Zero - a currently running anime with a very similar time travel concept. Title: Erased (aka Boku Dake ga Inai Machi - The Town Without Only Me) Genre: Seinen, Murder, Mystery, Scifi Studio: A-1 Pictures Length: 12 Episodes Release Date: 2016 Where to Watch: Crunchyroll Geeky: 5/5 Sweetie: 3/5 Overall: 36

Xenogears – Retro JRPG Game Review

Xenogears is easily in my top 10 favorite games of all time. I also enjoy Xenosaga and Xenoblade as well which are spinoffs of this series (and involved most of the same staff). Xenogears was revolutionary for its time because of the extremely dark storyline and incredibly strong religious overtones which were considered to be almost "too mature" for a video game, especially in North America. It had both scifi and fantasy elements; by that I mean, it really went into depth in some areas explaining the scientific theories and concepts behind certain things - but then other things have a more "magical" feeling that require suspension of belief. It also blended high tech (mecha, A.I., and space travel) with primitive "fantasy" style settings and characters. Xenogears had some stellar pr

Kawaii Cat Cafe JRPG, 7th Dragon, Heads West with Over 96 Ways to Customize the Appearance of Your Hero

7th Dragon until now, has remained a title only available in Japan, but that is about to change with 7th Dragon III Code VFD on the Nintendo 3DS. This quirky little Time Travel RPG sees us in a not too distant future which is at war with powerful dragons. In order to save the world from destruction, you must travel to the ancient city of Atlantis, future capital of Eden, and present day Tokyo. The artwork features chibi super-deformed, bobble head, big head, tiny body style character designs, giving everything a very cute anime feeling. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean. Very Kawaii!: https://youtu.be/LPaYz7MIgiw With the cute art work, and almost endless ways to customize your hero, this game immediately sparks my radar. I admit, I've not heard of 7th Dragon until now. I'...

Chrono Trigger Squaresoft Retro Super Nintendo SNES RPG Videogame Review

I'm sure the majority of my readers have played this one, but it's a great game and deserves to be included on our site. I still remember when Chrono Trigger first came out, I was still a child then, and my mother had gone with me to the game store where I was browsing through the games. Nowadays, you can find places that sell used games on every corner, but it was just the one store in my area Since I seemed to be taking awhile, the clerk offered help and my mom told him that I needed a game that would be challenging and last me a long time because I used to beat my games very quickly. The clerk recommended Chrono Trigger because of the high replay value with 13 multiple endings and some challenging boss fights, and the rest is history :) It quickly became one of my favorite and most memo
