Steam Game Review: Devil's Dare (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, December 30, 2014 0 comments

"Devil's Dare" is an retro inspired arcade styled beat 'em game for the PC.  This game starts off with two gaming journalists doing some work at a gaming convention but then right out of nowhere a zombie invasion takes place leaving them trapped up sh*t's creek without a paddle.  Lucky for them there are other people trapped in this now hellish place and by lucky I mean that these people are packed to the teeth with awesome weaponry and ready to kick butt.  The playable characters include: A guy with a sword and shield, a short person with an axe that knows how to wrestle, a God loving cheerleader that controls a powerful robot tank, and a young boy whom is a master of the art of ninjutsu.  These four heroes will bash, smash, and crash their way though the entire city to wipe out the zombies with the greatest of ease...  If only, this game isn't as easy as it seems as this game has a huge twist in it's system that will make you think to play through this game carefully.  What is this twist?

"A Bird Story" is a game for the PC about a young boy that lives in an average apartment, lives an average life, and goes to an average school (No "Twilight Zone (1959 - 1964)" styled plot twist to be found here).  One day while walking home from school we see that the young boy hears something going on in the bushes and goes on to see what it is.  What he sees is an injured bird being chased around by a very hungry looking badger.  The boy manages to chase off the badger and puts the bird in his bag so he can take it to a vet.  The bird gets patched up and thus the adventure starts and is about a young boy taking care of a bird.  The story is very simple but will you be surprised at how much entertainment you will get?  Or will you be bored out of your Vulcan mind?  Find out after the jump.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Toradora! The Complete Series (2008 - 2009)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, December 24, 2014 0 comments

"Toradora! The Complete Series" is an animated drama series about a group of teenagers (that's a vague description for an anime, I know).  This show starts off about a teen-aged boy named Ryuji and he is a bit upset and angry as people are afraid of him because he has eyes that are very scary to look at, in reality he is a very gentle person that has a crush on his classmate, Minori (a cute red head with a tom boy attitude).  Meanwhile in this very same school we have the other main character, Taiga.  Taiga is very petite, very bratty and is also in love with a fellow classmate.  After school has ended we see Ryuji walking into his classroom to pick up his schoolbag only to walk into Taiga putting a love letter in his bag.  Later that night we see Ryuji looking at the letter and finds that it is empty and then goes to bed.  While Ryuji is sleeping we see someone sneaking into his house and tries to attack him with a wooden sword.  The attacker is none other than Taiga and she is angry as Ryuji got the love letter and it wasn't meant for him.  Ryuji finds out that Taiga has a crush on his best friend named Yusaku and she is very embarrassed that someone knows of her crush.  Ryuji calms her down by showing her his collection of stuff he has made for his crush.  Turns out that Ryuji's crush is Taiga's best friend and vice versa, thus Ryuji makes a deal with Taiga to help her get with Yusaku and Taiga will help Ryuji get together with Midori...  But she also wants another stipulation added to their deal and that's for Ryuji to be her dog (AKA her bitch) to which he accepts.  Looks like this is a start of a beautiful friendship.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Steam Game Review: The Sacred Tears TRUE (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On 0 comments

"The Sacred Tears TRUE" is a fantasy role playing game where you take the role of  two thieves named Seil and Seana.  This game starts off with Seil and Seana robbing a museum and taking a valuable jewel, sadly they set off an alarm and guards go after them.  Seil and Seana battle their way out of the museum and trick the guards by throwing away a fake gem to make the guards think that they have given up and returned the jewel.  Sadly it turns out that Seil threw the real jewel instead of the fake one and thus they couldn't collect their pay for that mission.  Seil and Seana really needed the cash too as they can barely afford to buy food.  While on a trip to look at some gear they get called up to see their boss at the thieves guild.  Their boss isn't happy at them for messing up the mission but ultimately ends up forgiving them.  Not too long after their meeting they hear a true story of a rare item called a "Sacred Tear" and how it is sealed deep in a museum.  Now Seil is interested in breaking in and stealing this item so that him and Seana can become rich.  Before they can go and steal the tear they notice something rotten is going on with the guild and a mysterious group and so they need to put a stop to that first.  Will they succeed?  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

"If My Heart Had Wings" is a romantic drama visual novel for the PC.  This game starts off with a teenage boy named Aoi (I know that's typically a female name) whom is on his way to his new job that's at his old home town to which he hasn't been to in five years.  Seeing as he turned up early he decides to take the scenic route and stops by at a beautiful park full of windmills.  While at the park he runs into a girl in a wheelchair named Kotori.  Kotori is very upset and frustraed due to her being stuck there because of a flat tire (yikes).  Aoi wastes no time to help her out and after that he spends some time with her and walks her to the nearest convenience store.  Aoi had a good time and is hoping for some more good times when he turns up for his job.  Aoi's job is that he is a caretaker for a school dorm but he is in shock when he finds out that the dorm he is care taking is an all-girl dorm.  Aoi also happens to run into Kotori and is surprised that her personality is much more different there compared to the time he spent with her before.  After calming down and getting some rest he goes to school and is reunited with some old friends but that's not all as after searching around the school he wanders into a huge shed and finds a very beautiful girl.  Aoi becomes very interested as the beautiful girl is in a club called "The Soaring Club", in this club she is working on building a huge glider so she can fly through the sky.  Sadly there's a chance that the club may being forced to close down due to lack of members thus /Aoi decides to help her find new members.  Can they achieve their goal?  What else will happen in this story of love and flight?  What I mentioned was no more than a smidgen of what goes on in this story as a lot more happened in this story.  Is this visual novel worth getting past that point and enjoying the full story?  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
