Sonic Origins Plus – Review | The DLC

This time last year, Sonic Origins was released as a celebration of the titular hedgehog’s 31st birthday. Although imperfect in some ways, I still thought it was the best official way to play all of the Genesis classics. Exactly one year later, Sega has seen fit to follow up on that with a refresh. Sonic Origins Plus […]

Persona 3 Portable – Review | Returning Remaster

Persona has turned into one of the most widely celebrated JRPG franchises of all time, and for good reason.

Spearheading the Blue Blur’s 31st anniversary is yet another remaster, or rather, a full set of remasters. Sonic Origins aims to deliver the definitive experiences of all […]

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – Review

It wasn’t that long ago when Puyo Puyo was a mostly unknown franchise outside of Japan. Barring some fringe releases here and there, Sega seemed mostly content with allowing it to stay that way. That all changed with the release of Puyo Puyo Tetris in 2017, which was a roaring success worldwide. Since then, the […]

Sonic Colors: Ultimate – Review

Initially released in 2010, Sonic Colors came out to general praise from critics and fans alike for its refreshing focus on platforming through colorful worlds and a simple, laidback storyline that only featured the more core members of Sonic’s cast. It’s been 11 years since I first played the game and my tastes have changed […]

In the last decade, anime licensed games have evolved substantially! What was once a breeding ground for sub-par titles that only used a license to sell extra copies has grown into some of the most successful and popular games in the industry! This paradigm shift was all thanks to one studio that aimed to push […]
