The Medium Review

Far from the Silent Hill spiritual successor games media painted it as pre-release, sparked by Akira Yamaoka's involvement, The Medium is nonetheless an interesting fork in Bloober Team's portfolio. It's their most ambitious project, but ambition doesn't translate to quality. The Niwa Hotel The Medium's plot follows Marianne, a grieving medium who receives a call … Continue reading The Medium Review

Quantum Break Review(8/10)

Founded in 1995, Max Payne carries Remedy Entertainment's legacy. In the fourteen years since Max Payne 2, only two console games have come from the studio--Alan Wake and Quantum Break. The latter was built up as one of Microsoft's major eighth generation exclusives, though it came and went with a whimper. Is Quantum Break worth … Continue reading Quantum Break Review(8/10)

School Girl Zombie Hunter Review(4.5/10)

"Lose the clothes, save your life!" With such eloquently stated writing on the back of the box, whatever could School Girl Zombie Hunter possibly be about?

If Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 showed promise for a franchise that could grow past mediocrity and become something special, then Re;Birth 2 squanders that potential full force. It makes some interesting minor additions, but comes up short of its predecessor.  The first addition comes in the form of four player party battles as opposed to the … Continue reading Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 Sisters Generation Review(5.5/10)

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review(6.5/10)

The Hyperdimension series has become huge over the past few years, almost to the point of self referential parody. What began innocently enough as a single turn-based rpg grew into a franchise with multiple remakes and spin-offs ranging from an idol management simulator to a strategy rpg. One could argue the franchise's true beginning wasn't until … Continue reading Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review(6.5/10)
