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

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

School Days Visual Novel PC Game Review

I was asked by a reader that I met on crunchyroll's forums today if I would please review the School Days visual novel, from which the popular yandere anime is based. I actually picked this game up a few months ago in Groupee's Visual Novel 2 Bundle sale. And I'm glad I did. Now before we go on, this is an adult game, or hentai game as they call it. I won't be putting any adult screenshots or going into too much detail about these scenes. There is a lot of REAL story elements and it's more than just all about sex, but you should know that there is still a fair amount of Hentai in this game. With that out of the way, the single coolest thing is that unlike visual novels that you click and read, Playing School Days is more like watching an anime. You only have precious few seconds to m...

I've been DYING to see what happens next! (and no I haven't read the books, sorry, I'm not a big "reader" these days.

(mmm Popcorn (my favorite, its even better than chocolate)...) Ok so anyways, I digress.

Her Story – Multiple Personalities Or Twins? My Theory, and Supporting Evidence

Her story is an awesome "game" - though it's not really a game in the traditional sense. You watch some video clips and pick up on key words or phrases in those clips to find more video clips to watch. The premise is that a woman has murdered her husband, and you have to figure out her motive. While "playing" the game, you interview the woman over the course of several days. Each clip is only a few seconds long; and they're never in chronological order, or make much sense out of context. It's up to you to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and form your own conclusion. You learn pretty quickly; that there are 2 women being interviewed, Hannah, and Eve. But are Hannah and Eve; really two people? Or are they one person with a Dissociative Identity disorder? When I started this game; ...

King’s Quest To Get a Sequel King’s Quest IX on July 28th 2015.

I think I recall hearing about this a year or two ago... but it fell to the back of my mind... until a facebook ad told me to like Sierra Games for updates on the "new" king's quest game. Upon clicking that ad, I saw the game is about to release on July 28th.... and I SPAZZED OUT. I can barely contain myself to even write this right now... https://youtu.be/GDQ1WjjHaNI I own ALL of the games. My favorite is "heir today, gone tomorrow" because it was the first one I played :) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); They are beautifully hand drawn point and click games with charming (Although sometimes cheesey) characters and humor mixed in. Their last title, was NOT a good move for the company and I assumed would be the death of the series (They made an ultima-ish firs...
