Import Review: Project X-Zone (3DS)

Have you ever wanted all your favorite game characters from Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai altogether in a strategy RPG? Well, consider your wish granted! In Japan at least, that is.

Import Review: Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS)

Fire Emblem is one of the longest running tactical RPGs ever, if not the longest, and I’ve felt that it never got quite enough of the recognition it deserved. Hiding in the shadows of other, more famous tactical RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea in terms of name recognition and…

Review: Catherine (PS3/360)

Like Catherine and Katherine, our love for this game can’t be restricted to just one person, so we had two reviewers give their takes on this amazing game! The first review was done before the game was released in America, using a Japanese copy, while the second one was reviewed after its US release. That being said, let the review commence!
