I still bought Alice in the Heart

You all know how I feel about the Alice in the Heart translation. It’s abysmal. Quinrose should have gone above and beyond to make their English debut perfect, and instead it’s a heart-wrenching mess. I still bought it. I expected far better from Alice in the Heart and Quinrose. Especially since Yen Press Seven Seas more »

Virtuix Omni might be the future of VR

It’s obviously no secret that I’m a fan of virtual reality. It stems from my ongoing love affair with anime like .Hack and Sword Art Online. I dream for the days when we can be fully immersed in video games. Hopefully that immersion doesn’t end badly like it did in .Hack or SAO, but that’s more »

Tangram Attack: Don’t become complacent

Earlier this month, I mentioned that Tangram Attack for the is more of a stylus skill trainer than a game about tangrams.

Swing Copters is not the next Flappy Bird

So-difficult-it’s-practically-impossible has become its own game genre, thanks to mobile gamers. They elevated these ridiculously difficult titles, which provide five minutes of play at best for even the most skilled, to a commercially viable property. Flappy Bird is heralded is the “king” of this cluster, but I feel Swing Copters will be the impossible games’ more »

The Sims 4: Missing a lot of features

I recently discovered a list of 89 things that will be missing from The Sims 4. It’s insane that the game will be missing so many of the features that made its predecessors great, and the scope of the things that are being left out is seemingly random. One case that I can make for more »

Alice in the Country of Hearts is among their best, so it should have been a triumph when the PSP version was localized and ported to iOS and Android devices as Alice in the Hearts. Alas, instead more »

Newer Ouya is better

I love to talk about all kinds of Android games during the weekly Android Amusements updates, but I also like to talk about systems. To be more specific, the Ouya. A lot of times I won’t mention it, but I am side-loading games onto my old, launch run Ouya for good times. I know the more »
