The Caligula Effect: Overdose Review

In many ways, The Caligula Effect: Overdose is refreshingly low-key and intelligent within its genre. It turns its obvious paragons into a personal drama of its own kind, choosing subtle while others swag, and going surprisingly deep while others pretend.

Happy Birthdays Review

The peculiarly named Happy Birthdays is an ecosystem simulator conceived by Yasuhrio Wada, the mind behind Harvest Moon. Much like the iconic farming series, this “god game” is about managing your environment to produce something - in this case, entire species. By manipulating elements like temperature and terrain within a miniature cube, you can influence the creation of many lifeforms and experience their happy birthdays.

Tokyo Tattoo Girls Review

In the end, what we have in Tokyo Tattoo Girls is by far one of the most shallow strategy games I've ever seen, with absolutely a joke of a story, and shallow and repetitive gameplay. It's just so utterly disappointing in just about every aspect. As someone who doesn't have any tattoos (although my wife more than makes up for me), I think I'd rather go get my first one than play this game any more than I had to.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Goodbye Despair is a perfect example of how a sequel should be done. It doesn't try to change mechanics of the original but instead improves on them. By adding a engaging plot and spectacular narrative coupled with charismatic characters and an rewarding island worth exploring Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is a title that any visual novel fan should experience.
