Review | 7’scarlet (PSV)

This review was originally posted on Rice Digital on June 4th, 2018.

I will happily admit that I’m not massively familiar with the otome genre of games, although now that I’ve discovered them, I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t jumped on this before. 7’scarlet is a visual novel otome game from Idea Factory, originally released in Japan in 2016 for Playstation Vita. Now, the wonderful folks over at Aksys have brought the game to the EU, but how is 7’scarlet to play? Continue reading “Review | 7’scarlet (PSV)”

Review | Dark Souls Remastered (PS4)

This review was originally posted on Rice Digital on May 25th, 2018.

It’s difficult where to begin with reviewing a remaster of any game. Do you focus on the differences between the original and the new fangled version? Do you treat the game as a totally fresh entity, or do you judge it in the light of its legacy? Speaking of which, Bandai Namco are soon to release Dark Souls Remastered, the remaster of the 2011 arguable modern classic. But how does the game stack up on modern hardware?

RTG | Site Update #4

It has been a little quiet on here in recent times hasn’t it? In fact, it has been almost a month since I last updated the site, and I apologise that it has been so long a wait for you all to get more of that RTG goodness. I thought I would take this brief respite from how hectic my life has been to write a small update, just so you all know that I haven’t forgotten about you. Continue reading “RTG | Site Update #4”

Review | Detective Pikachu

This review was originally posted on Nintendo Scene on 22nd April 2018.

The Pokémon series is undeniably a worldwide smash hit by this point with millions of units shifted across the various generations of mainline titles, and that’s not even including the various spin-offs and the avalanche of merchandise for the series. One such spin-off is this little curio here, Detective Pikachu. Beginning development in 2013 and being released only in Japan as Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo in 2016. This initial version was removed in January this year to be replaced by the release of this, the expanded version containing three times the amount of cases. This all being said, how is Detective Pikachu? Continue reading “Review | Detective Pikachu”

Event Report | EGX Rezzed, Tobacco Dock [14/04/18]

EGX Rezzed has sadly been and gone, and here I sit on an balmy Spring morning writing about it way too late in comparison to when I attended. Last weekend I found myself in the beautiful Tobacco Dock in London for the event that brings together all the best and brightest in the indie gaming scene, with a large variety of upcoming and recently released gems to try out, along with my good friend EnotheStrife (whom you might recognise as my partner on my Return To Yharnam streams of Bloodborne). Not only that but the big guns were also in attendance with Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft showing off the future indie offerings for their respective consoles. I sampled a large cross section of different games, across multiple genres, but how were the games? Continue reading “Event Report | EGX Rezzed, Tobacco Dock [14/04/18]”
