Omega Quintet Reactions: Can we drop that creepy breathing thing?

I’ve been spending a lot of time this month with Idea Factory and Compile Heart’s new PS4 RPG, Omega Quintet. The first game I ever played from Compile Heart was one of the Agarest War sequels. I remember very little about it, other than it being pretty boring, but one thing stood out – the breathing. Ugh, more »

Starbound’s ship-based pets aren’t too important yet

Starbound received a rather large update this month that does some things. Good things, on the whole, but also some that are rather, well, there. Adding the Ark as a location from the transportation gate is one. I don’t want to get into it, but basically it allows you to visit a temple, see some more »

Affordable Space Adventures is a great touch screen reminder

When you start playing Affordable Space Adventures, your ship’s systems are largely down and you gradually put them back to use. You also do that with your Wii U’s GamePad. You’ll dust off the screen — when was the last time you touched that? — and start to get reacquainted with that interface you’ve owned for more »

Omega Quintet’s always asking you to download movie files (update)

When you download a 13.5GB PS4 game, there are certain expectations. Once Omega Quintet was on my system, I thought that was that. I had the game, it was all installed, and I was ready to go. Except I obviously wasn’t, because I kept seeing this screen. In case for some reason you can’t see more »

Shades of Madoka in Omega Quintet

It isn’t uncommon for iconic characters to influence other creations. Especially within the realm of magical girl series. Without Princess Knight, we would have never seen series like Sailor Moon and Magic Knight Rayearth, and eventually even magical girl games like Hyperdimension Neptunia and Omega Quintet. Commonalities are bound to exist. However, with Omega Quintet, more »


5 3DS games you should have played in April

April 2015 has been a good month for video games. In particular, it’s a fantastic month for the 3DS. A number of great 3DS games have been released, and they’re all titles you want to either have on your radar immediately, or save to some sort of wishlist to ensure you don’t miss out. I more »

Bad games are better with friends

Ever hear the adage, “Misery loves company?” Well, it’s true. Especially when it comes to bad games. We’ve all experienced terrible titles. They’re unavoidable. And, with the line of work people like myself are in, sometimes we stumble across some real stinkers. There’s only one thing that makes these moments bearable, and that’s knowing we more »

5 comic book games more interesting than Batman v Superman

If you really want to, you can now watch the teaser trailer for the upcoming grimdark snoozefest, Batman v Superman. Watching it made me weep for humanity, so I wouldn’t recommend subjecting yourself to it. But you might be easier to please than I am. Who knows. I stopped caring halfway through this paragraph. I more »

The Spatials’ team must be Star Trek fans

I’ve been playing The Spatials, a simulation with role-playing elements that takes place in space, and one thought has prevailed. The team that created The Spatials, Weird and Wry, must be serious Star Trek fans. You can’t tell me those adorable uniforms don’t look like something out of Star Trek! The inclusion of a few more »

Orbtime is the Drop7 Pebble clone you didn’t know you needed

Did you know that people do some pretty amazing things with Pebbles? Like you’ll see games and apps on there that you wouldn’t normally expect to see on a smartwatch. One of which is a remarkably competant Drop7 clone by the name of Orbtime. Keep an eye open, because that name is going to have more »


Pottermore keeps Harry Potter relevant

I joined the Harry Potter-centric website Pottermore way back when it first started in 2012. At the time, the book series was long since finished, and the movies were coming to an end. I knew that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction would be opening up, but getting there from the frozen Minnesota tundra more »

The new StreetPass Mii Plaza games have a good pedigree

You know those StreetPass Mii Plaza minigames? They aren’t some things thrown together. These are titles from major developers. People who matter. Mii Force was made by Good-Feel, Warrior’s Way was made by Spike Chunsoft, Monster Manor came from Prope, and we could relax with Flower Town thanks to Grezzo. Naturally, Battleground Z and Ultimate more »
