Nether: The Untold Chapter Review

Nether: The Untold Chapter isn’t a bad game by any means, but it's also not perfect. I’m glad to find, however, that updates are constantly being made available that will hopefully entice new players to join and keep playing.

Observation Review

After tediously fiddling through all the menial puzzles, the ending just made me shrug my shoulders instead of giving me shivers that I was supposed to have felt. It’s too bad that the promising premise fizzled as soon as the gameplay showed its true colors, watering down the prevailing mystery in the process.

Resident Evil 2 Review

Remastering old games is relatively easy. Just spice up the graphics and perhaps smooth out controls a bit and that’s it. Remaking is another story, though, especially if it concerns such a classic video game as Resident Evil 2, something that’s loved and cherished by a whole generation of gamers who first experienced it over 20 years ago on PlayStation 1.

Call of Cthulhu Review

Although there are a few environments in the game that feel fully realized, and sections of story and dialogue that hint at a much more satisfying gameplay experience, Call of Cthulhu only sporadically engages with the imagination of Lovecraft and too often seems like a sketch that needs to be more completely filled in, shaped and polished.

Kaet Must Die Review

This is it, this is the time I beat this level! That’s what I told myself. I had failed several times, leaped in fear several times, and drawn myself a map marking all the key things to gather and avoid. Things are finally going well and I’m on my way to finish the level. I make a dash through an area I thought I marked safe, and suddenly a zombie leaps forward, killing me, and making me flail my body more violently than the last time.

Yume Nikki Dream Diary Review

What is it about the Japanese culture that makes its horror and psychological thrillers so unsettling? Is it the oppressive atmosphere that builds suspense over agonizingly long periods of time? Is it the culture’s inherent spirituality, of stories about various spirits and oni affecting people? I can’t say without any air of authority, I just know that the horror films I’ve seen and the manga I’ve read are forever burned into my brain (some I wish would go away!). Which brings us to Yume Nikki Dream Diary from Kadokawa Corporatio, a remake of the cult classic Yume Nikki, which was programmed in RPG Maker by Kikiyama in 2004.
