British girl, currently in Japan. Surviving on a diet of retro games. Worshiping the god that is the Sega Megadrive. I like Nintendo.

6 / 10.0 - Blade Strangers
Aug 31, 2018

While Blade Strangers is a perfectly competent fighting game it will struggle to find an audience. Too simple for fighting fans, too niche for kids and not enough story for fans of the source material, it simply fails to meet the mark.

9 / 10.0 - Yakuza Kiwami 2
Aug 23, 2018

As a remake of a sequel, it's no surprise that Yakuza Kiwami 2 has a lot more on offer than the first title. However, the choice to stick with Yakuza 6's convoluted stats system is an unfortunate blip in what could have been an ideal remake.

Overall, Sega Genesis Classics is not a bad selection of games from the Genesis library. There's a very competent emulation of the gameplay from the original hardware. However, it lacks some key games and extras we got in past compilations, and the sound emulation is lacking.

6.5 / 10.0 - Runner3
May 19, 2018

While still an enjoyable game to play, Runner3 has serious balancing issues. I little bit of polish here and there would have seen frustrations turn into a lot of fun.

Yakuza 6 is a great game because it's a Yakuza game, but it's not a great Yakuza game. It still has the great brawler action the series is known for, and a tight put together story. However, the tightening of the narrative in no ways makes up for all the great things I missed out on from the previous game.

7 / 10.0 - Secret of Mana HD
Mar 3, 2018

There is a lot wrong with this remake and a lot of missed opportunities in terms of updating a game for the modern age, but at its core, it is still Secret of Mana and that is a game that everyone should play at least once.

8 / 10.0 - Crossing Souls
Feb 13, 2018

While Crossing Souls treads the line between challenging and frustrating, there is a lot here to get excited about. Strong and varied gameplay mixes beautifully with a well written story and great music and graphics.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows mixes a creepy cute art style, atmospheric sound design and a heart warming story for great comfy horror experience. A few jump scares aside, it captures the scary ambiance perfectly.

7.5 / 10.0 - Bad Apple Wars
Oct 12, 2017

The story is by no means without fault, but Bad Apple Wars has something truly charming about it. The characters are so well written that I kept coming back until I'd seen everything the game had to offer and was touched every time.

Danganronpa V3: Killiing Harmony not only gives fans more of the Danganronpa they know and love, but it elevates the series to new heights and leaves old players scratching their heads and reeling in shock at the twists the story takes.

7 / 10.0 - Last Day of June
Sep 6, 2017

While short, Last Day of June is a nice story that will capture you for the entirety of your playthrough. However, the ending ensures that the game won't stay with you after you're done.

8.5 / 10.0 - Yakuza Kiwami
Aug 21, 2017

A concise and emotional story that cuts out the filler and perfectly mixes in varied and interesting combat. At its core, Yakuza Kiwami is still a PlayStation 2 game, but its short and sweet nature doesn't hold it back in the long run.

4.5 / 10.0 - Death Squared
Aug 16, 2017

If you're desperate for a local co-op puzzle game, then Death Squared will certainly scratch that itch. However, lack of variety in levels means that it can get pretty monotonous very quickly.

9.5 / 10.0 - Salt and Sanctuary
May 12, 2017

Salt and Sanctuary is an amazing game that is well paced and has layers of gameplay that slowly unfold the more you play. This game is recommended even if you are shy of the difficulty of the Souls series and is throughly rewarding.

Full Throttle is as great as it ever was, with a charming story and interesting puzzles. The remaster does little to add to this, but it's still very much worth your time.

A great 2D puzzle platformer that is a asset to the genre. The creepy, cute atmosphere, and innovative game mechanics make it a game which everyone should dip their toes in to.

7 / 10.0 - The Inner Darkness
Mar 21, 2017

An amazing example of what just one dev can do. A solid 2D pixel puzzle platformer, and worth an hour of your time, even if the writing is a little difficult to bear.

An absolutely stunning achievement in using the interactive medium. A few bugs and control issues aside, this is a must play for those who can handle the slow pace.

A solid strategy game that could do with more challenge and only really shines on mobile platforms.

A beautiful game but not quite successful for me as a social experiment.
