Steam Game Review: Melody's Escape (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, October 23, 2014 0 comments

"Melody's Escape" is a rhythm/music game with a bit of a platforming twist and is out for the PC.  In this game you play as a woman named Melody and she loves two things: Running and listening to music.  Picking songs from your very own music library will generate levels for Melody to run on.  Not only will you run but you'll also slide, glide, jump off of really tall ledges, jump up really high walls, and she can even fly.  Yep, there isn't much in terms of story or gameplay as it is all pretty simple.  But as they say, "keep it simple silly" as simplicity can work the best in some cases.  Now will simplicity work well with this game?  Or will it be so simple that it becomes the most boring experience of your life?  All these questions and more will all be answered after the jump.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review). 

DVD Review: Amnesia (2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, October 21, 2014 0 comments

"Amnesia" is an animated drama series about a young female adult named...  Well I am unsure about her name as it is not said anywhere in this show.  Why, you ask?  Because on one fine afternoon while working at a cafĂ© she suddenly finds herself on her back completely unaware of who she is and where she is.  That's right, she suffers from amnesia.  Now how she got amnesia is where this story becomes a little iffy as the way she got amnesia was that she was bumped into by a spirit that looks like a fairy and is named Orion.  Orion is very sorry that he bumped into her and is willing to help her undo his mistake and return her life back to normal.  Not too long after that conversation we see a bunch of men come into the room and boy are they worried about her.  The young woman is a bit worried as these men seem like strangers to her but she goes along with them despite that.  Turns out the men are her childhood friends and they care for her very much.  The young woman starts to relax and try her best to continue her life and she seems to be getting some of her memories back.  While on a trip to the mountains so they can set off some fireworks we see a little spat between the young woman and one of her friends which leads to her running off and falling down a cliff (aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh SPLAT).  Later on we see that she has awoken in a bed only to find something very shocking has happened.  What is it you ask?  Let's just say that it will lead to some crazy things.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Steam Game Review: Croixleur Sigma (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On 0 comments

"Croixleur Sigma" is an arcade styled hack and slash, beat 'em up hybrid PC game about two girls named "Lucrezia Visconti" and "Francesca Storaro".  Both girls are of different classes as Lucrezia is a member of the Aristocrats while Francesca is a member of the Knights.  Both girls also happen to be childhood friends and they get along just like "The Odd Couple (1970 - 1975)" as Francesca takes her role very seriously, Lucrezia is a bit of a goof and likes to joke around and make other people feel uncomfortable and goes on about how she wants to take a bubble bath with Francesca.  While their personalities are very different we see that their skills in battle are equal as they are both quite skilled fighters that are nearly graduates of their school.  Before they can graduate they must go through a tough task called the "Adjuvant Trial" to which they both have to battle their way through a tower with evil monsters lurking about.  That's not all as they have to also beat the tower within a certain time limit and that makes Lucrezia and Francesca treat this task as more of a race to see who can reach the top of the tower first.  I wonder what kind of evil creatures live in this tower?  Will our heroes get rewarded greatly for completing their task?  Will Lucrezia and Francesca live to bathe again?  (Click "Read More" to read the full review). 

Blu-Ray Review: Rick and Morty - The Complete Season One (2013 - 2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, October 17, 2014 0 comments

"Rick and Morty - The Complete Season One" is an animated science fiction comedy series about a young boy named Morty and his grandfather named Rick.  Morty is just a simple boy that enjoys simple things, like going to school and idling over the girl he likes.  Rick is a genius scientist and inventor but while a smart dude he is also an alcoholic, likes to drag Morty into his crazy schemes, and is also a bit of a prick...  And that's why we love him.  Also in this show we have Jerry and Beth whom are Morty's constantly arguing parents, also Summer who is Morty's older sister who is a bit jealous of how Rick is always giving Morty attention...  Although she might regret that if she ever saw the hell Rick puts Morty through.  So join Rick and Morty as we see them go on many crazy and comedic adventures through space, time, and alternate space and uh... Alternate time.  Some example of what to expect in this first season includes:  Rick trying to convince Morty to smuggle contraband over inter-dimensional customs, Rick guiding Morty when trouble goes down in a theme park built inside of a homeless man, Rick and Morty trying to stop a hoard of infected people that all want Morty to mate with them,  Jerry's huge ego trip adventure on Pluto, Rick and Morty battling evil... I mean eviler versions of themselves, plus more.  So sit down, buckle up, and wubba lubba dub dub as this is Rick and Morty.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Parasite Dolls (2002 - 2003).

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 0 comments

"Parasite Dolls" is an animated science fiction action show set right in the heart of the AD Police universe where shows such as "Bubblegum Crisis (1987 - 1991)" and "AD Police (1990)" take place. This show is about a secret squad that the AD Police have that's sole purpose is to take out androids named "Boomers" that have gone rogue. In this squad we have a guy named Buzz whom is afraid of using guns due to something that has happened to him during a case in his past, his partner named Rod whom is an android/boomer himself, the young gun named Reiko whom has a bit of an itchy trigger finger, master computer hacker named Bill whom can crack his way into anything, and lastly we have Angel whom is a beautiful spy that goes deep undercover to help the squad score some information about the criminals they are pursuing. In this mini-series we will see our squad take on three different cases set over a seven to eight year period that covers everything from violence, sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll all in this futuristic noir style of detective tales in the same vein as "Blade Runner (1982)" or "Psycho-Pass (2012 -2013)" if you are a younger anime fan (I'm the one to talk as I'm pretty young myself).
