Ryuji Sakamoto: Hoist the Flag and Wreak Havoc

Guys! Help! Persona 5 has consumed my life again! Send a rescue team! I had wanted to talk about the two new Royal characters the next time I discussed Persona 5. Unfortunately, there are two problems with that. One: they only play a small role in the game for the majority of the game, with… Continue reading Ryuji Sakamoto: Hoist the Flag and Wreak Havoc

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: That’s Actually the Title

Or, if you want to save your breath, you could call it NSUNS2. Which is what I will be doing from here on out in this review. It just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? A long time ago, I decided to go back and reexperience Naruto. Unfortunately, I had a bit of a problem. I didn't… Continue reading Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: That’s Actually the Title

Makoto Niijima: The Queen of the Phantom Thieves

Persona 5: Royal has been out for a few days now. I can't say whether or not it's better than the original, as I'm writing this well before it comes out.

Uncharted Drake’s Fortune: The First Step is Rarely the Best

Time for another unpopular video game opinion! Naughty Dog is a pretty well-respected game developer. Every single one of their games has enjoyed critical acclaim from just about everyone! Everyone, that is, except for me. Sure, I love Jak and Daxter! That was the first game I had ever played! But that's about it. I… Continue reading Uncharted Drake’s Fortune: The First Step is Rarely the Best

Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie: The Best Video Game Movie Ever?

Spoiler alert: no. No, it isn't. It's a fun movie, sure! But is it truly good? Not really. The Sonic movie was simultaneously one of the most generic and bizarre cinematic experiences I've ever had. On one hand, you have an incredibly generic, by-the-numbers kids movie starring a CGI animal mascot, featuring some truly terrible… Continue reading Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie: The Best Video Game Movie Ever?
