"The Next Penelope - Race to Odysseus" is a futuristic driving adventure game for the PC.  This game starts off with chaos as there is disorder between the people of Ithaca and Poseidon as Poseidon wants the ship, Odysseus.  Sadly Odysseus has been missing for such a long time and now it is up to Ithaca's beautiful (but beaten) leader, Penelope.  Penelope must now take off in her spaceship so that she can search the galaxy for the missing Odysseus and put a rest to this chaos.  Penelope has a very tough task ahead as it's not as simple as flying through space as she also has to explore planets that each have their own tasks whether it'd be racing, battling monsters, or even collecting as this isn't your typical driving game.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Steam Game Review: Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, February 24, 2015 0 comments

"Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut" is a neo-retro adventure game that is paying tribute to computer games from the cassette tape era namely the "ZX Spectrum (1982)".  In this game you play as a young princess named Victoria whom is living in a world where men in top hats and fancy trousers rule the streets (sounds like hell if you ask me).  There's a craze going on with the men in hats as they are all flying off into space in giant bullet shaped spaceships so they can get to Mars (the planet and not the tasty chocolate/caramel/nougat bar).  Princess Victoria is curious about Mars but sadly no ladies are allowed and so she disguises herself as a top hat fancy pants man and successfully catches a spaceship to Mars.  When she reaches Mars she finds out that it's not all that's cracked up to be as everyone who goes there becomes slaves to an evil man that wears a bigger hat and even fancier pants and so it is up to Victoria to save them all from this dastardly man.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Devil Survivor 2 - The Animation (2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, February 20, 2015 0 comments

"Devil Survivor 2 - The Animation" is an animated supernatural action series based on the video game of nearly the same name, "Shin Megami Tensai's: Devil Survivor 2 (2011)".  This show opens up with two friends named Hibiki Kuze and Daichi Shijima who are sitting down, having some nice warm drinks, and talking to each other about a creepy new web-site/phone-app (they say "Web-site" but it's totally a phone-app).  The site/app is called "Dead Face" (reminds me of "Deadmau5" every time) and all this site/app does is predicts the moment that you are going to die and it shows a video of the supposed moment in graphic and brutal detail.  Daichi Shijima takes a photo of Hibiki Kuze's face and sends it to Dead Face only to get back a clip of seeing them both die in a tragic train accident.  Hibiki Kuze and Daichi Shijima head out to a train station to catch a ride home (you can see where this is going already) and while waiting we see Daichi Shijima checking out a girl named Lo Nitta and goes on about how he wouldn't mind dating her.  Shortly after we see a train coming in and then suddenly comes off the tracks killing Hibiki Kuze and Daichi Shijima just as the video predicted.  We then see a weird moment of Hibiki Kuze getting a text-message asking if he wants to "live" or "die".  Hibiki Kuze chooses to live and awakens in the wreckage with Daichi Shijima and Lo Nitta only to see that the train station is full of demons feasting on the dead.  Sadly I am out of space for the main page preview but do not worry as the rest of the description of the show is right after the jump.  (Click "Read More" to read the review).

"Robot Chicken - DC Comics Special Two: Villains in Paradise" is the second Robot Chicken special to feature stop-motion animated skits solely based the DC Comics franchise.  In this special we go in a day in the life of what's it like working at the Legion of Doom (not to be confused with the wrestlers with the big spiky shoulder pads) ran by classic DC villains including: Lex Luthor, The Joker, The Penguin, Bizarro, Gorilla Grodd, and a few more others.  The DC heroes also appear in this special in all their super politically incorrect glory.  It's a super crazy action figure extravaganza that's fun for the whole family...  Assuming the whole family are fully grown adults that is.  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Frank (2014)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, February 16, 2015 0 comments

"Frank" is a black comedy about a keyboardist named Jon (played by Domhnall Gleeson) whom is busy trying to come up with an original song but he can't seem to find his core sound.  While Jon is on a walk he tries to come up with lyrics based on everything he sees that include women in pretty dresses and a band poster for a band named "Soronprfbs" (I don't know how to pronounce it either).  When he is at home all he does is play his keyboard and trying very hard to become relevant on Twitter.  On another one of his outings he spots the police trying to stop someone from drowning himself and walks up to see who the crazy person is.  Turns out the crazy person trying to drown himself is none other than the keyboardist for Soronprfbs and the whole band was also watching the guy try to drown himself.  Jon talks to the band's manager named Don (played by Scoot McNairy) and finds out that they will have to cancel their gig but Jon says that he plays keyboards and gets accepted as the band's temporal keyboardist. 

Jon makes it to the gig while the band is playing only to see that the leader of the band is just some guy named Frank (played by Michael Fassbender) that wears a big fake head with an amplifier installed.  Frank never takes off his mask and even his friends have no idea what he looks like underneath.  Jon also gets lucky as he is invited to be their official keyboardist and then asked to join them for the recording of their album.  Jon accepts and goes with them only to find that they are recording the album in a little log cabin in the middle of nowhere and he has only one pair of clean clothes and no idea how long it will take to record.  How will Jon handle being a part of this band that's a cross-between "Talking Heads" and "Deadmau5" (might seem like a random combination but I'll explain why I used those two bands as an example in the review).  (Click "Read More to read the full review).

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, February 5, 2015 0 comments

"BasketBelle" is an 2D adventure game that utilizes many different elements from other video game genres.  This game has you playing as a little boy without a name although I nicknamed him "Son" as that's the first thing they called him in this game.  "Son" is the son of an nameless basketball legend (according to Son that is) although for the sake of this review we will call him "Father".  Son just loves playing basketball and wants to be a great player like his dad is.  Father introduces a surprise to Son and that is that Son is now a brother of a healthy little girl named "Belle" (the only officially named character in this game).  Son is having a good time trying to teach Belle the basics of basketball but during one session we see the ball bounce out of the yard and Son goes after the ball.  Once Son returns with the ball he see something that scares him and that was that Belle got kidnapped by a group of "Purple Tentacle Monsters".  Son is now on a mission to rescue his dear sister Belle by searching for her and beating the Purple Tentacle Monsters at a game of basketball.  It's little boy verses literal monsters of basketball in "BasketBelle".  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
