PC Game Review: Desert Ashes (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, May 28, 2015 0 comments

Desert Ashes is a turn based strategy game that takes place in an alien universe, on an alien world, on an alien land, and is about two rival alien races that are at war with each other due to a fallout that happened in the past.  You take the role of the alien race called the Winged Crusade (sounds more like a team than an alien race), they don gold and red colors and look like birds.  The Winged Crusade gets a bright new rookie and you are lucky as the leader of the Winged Crusade sees a lot of potential with the rookie and teaches the rookie the ways of becoming a great soldier.  The Winged Crusade's goal is to wipe out the other alien race named Landians (now that sounds like an alien race).  The Landian race have more of a squid look to them as they have pointy squid like heads, heck, some of them even have huge metal tentacles.  The Landians won't go down to the Winged Crusade without putting up a fight and so it won't be an easy task for either side to win.  How will this war unfold?

PC Game Review: Make it Indie! (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, May 26, 2015 0 comments

Make it Indie is an FMV (full motion video) game that has you playing as a game developer that is trying to make the next big indie game.  You have only a week to complete your masterpiece and you can choose to spend that time any way you want as you can: Party with friends, play with your cat, go outside, or even work on the game itself (that last one is an important one).  The premise of the game sounds simple enough but will this game be a nice hidden gem?  Or will this game be some cruel twist of irony to where this game feels like it was made in a week just to snatch up your dollar?  I doubt it'll be anything that malice but we will find out after the jump.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Blu-Ray Review: Attack on Titan Collection Two (2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, May 25, 2015 0 comments

"Attack on Titan Collection Two" contains the second half of the first season of the sci-fi action show, Attack on Titan.  This show is about a group of youths that are part of a military, set on wiping out giant humanoid looking creatures named Titans.  One of the young youths named Eren just happens to have the ability to transform into one (you'll find out why from watching the first volume).  The rest of the military are scared out of their mind, so they put Eren though a very tough trial to decide if he is a threat to the human race or a weapon that can be used to fight back against the Titans.  After a very harsh and brutal trial we see that Eren is now a member of an elite group of hunters that risk their butts everyday to spot and fight Titans that lurk too close to the borders.  Sound the horns, release the hounds, and let the hunt begin (note: there are no hounds, horns, or horny hounds in this show but there is a hunt).  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Blu-Ray Review: Kill la Kill Volume 3 (2013 - 2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On 0 comments

Kill la Kill Volume Three marks the half-way point of this dramatic action comedy about Ryuko, a young adult who is after her father's killer and it aided by a crew that includes her best friend named Mako, a magical talking sailor uniform called a Kamui, and one giant scissor blade (technically that's a weapon).  In this volume we get to see Ryuko take on the rest of the Elite Four in the finals of the Naturals Election, a free-for-all battle royal tournament that has all of the students fighting to be top dog.  The battles are going to get even more difficult and intense for Ryuko although she seems very confident that she can win this thing and take out Satsuki (the student council leader) and get the dirt on who killed her daddy.  That is not all as there is someone big on their way to mess with Ryuko and this something big is actually a petite girl with blond hair, a pink gothic-lolita skirt, an eye-patch, and something that is so huge to where I'm not even going to dare to say what it is in this review.  One thing I will say is that Ryuko's questions will finally be answered in this instalment of Kill la Kill.  Will Ryuko regret asking her questions?

Blu-Ray Review: Adventure Time - The Complete Fourth Season (2012)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, May 14, 2015 0 comments

Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season continues the adventures (no pun intended) of Finn the Human and his loyal friend, Jake the Dog in the crazy land of Ooo.  This season could potentially be the most prominent season to date as a lot of deep and epic stuff happens (I don't use the word "epic" in a light sense and so that says a lot).  Some examples of what to expect in this season includes:  Finn finally getting himself a girlfriend,  Finn battling a hypnotizing character known as King Worm, Jake finding out some life changing news that involves Lady Rainicorn, Lumpy Space Princess trying to write a book on attracting people, Finn turning into a dreaded Hugwolf, Finn and Jake trying to escape from the Nightosphere, and we also learn a deep and dark secret that involves the Ice King and the vampire queen known as Marceline.  All that and much, much more in this exciting season of Adventure Time.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Call of the Ninja! (2012)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, May 12, 2015 0 comments

Call of the Ninja is a strategic puzzle game that has you trying to guide a line of ninja to a dojo that's at the other end of the level.  Sounds easy does it not?  No, it is not, there are obstacles trying to stop all the ninja from getting to the dojo.  You'll find that you have to jump over pits, walk over water, climb walls, avoid ninja-eating man eating plants, and even avoid towers that want to blow up your ninja with exploding cannon balls, that's just to name a few.  How on Earth will you help your group of ninja to get to the dojo?  You can help them by strategically placing little bubbles on the field and they will trigger an action for your ninja.  Can you help your ninja make it to the dojo?  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Veteran Combat (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, May 11, 2015 3 comments

Veteran Combat is an action packed 2D one on one fighting game that takes place in the 1940's and centers around military men and lovely female "workers" (Note: They might actually be hookers and strippers).  The goal of the game is to pick one of the twelve characters (four of those twelve are unlockable) and beat the rest of the characters in mortal combat and eventually face off with a mighty female dominatrix named Lady Commere.  Yep, not much in terms of story but that can be said about a lot of arcade style arcade fighters.  Will this game pack a punch? Or will it fell like a swift kick to the sensitive areas of the body.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
