Beholder - PC/Steam (2016)

Posted by Critical Failure On 0 comments

                Did you like the fast passed tension of Papers, Please? Beholder is a game about spying on tenants of a rundown apartment building and like in Papers, Please, you enforce dystopian policy in an oppressive society.. but in a fun way! Beholder is weird, slow and all black and brown, but the sneaking is fun and the characters are awesome.


                Once the game has begun, mechanically everything feels like a point and click game as opposed to the matching fast passed puzzle mechanics of “Papers, Please”. If I were to compare Beholder to Papers, Please, I would say if Sierra released Papers, Please in 1993 for PC, it would look like Beholder.

The interface is...

 I went through a very dark period a few years ago.  The kind of deep seeded depression where you truly do not care if you live or die.  Don’t worry though I’ve made it through to the other end.  There was one friend that was there and made sure I was getting out of the house and being around people when I needed it the most.  At the time I had a big collection of soft modded Xboxes loaded with emulators.  One of those Xboxes was the main feature at a lot of get togethers.

Blu-Ray Review: The Evil Dead Anthology (1981, 1987, 1992, 2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, June 8, 2016 0 comments



The Evil Dead Anthology is an humongous collection that includes all of the films from the classic horror series, The Evil Dead, all on blu-ray disc. By all films I mean that this set includes: The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead 2 (1987), Army of Darkness (1992), and even includes the 2013 remake of the original film. You'd think that this set ends with the films, right?  Well that's not all, this set also comes with a documentary film titled Invaluable (2014) and two more bonus discs that are full of exotic special features and are all holstered in a replica of the Necronomicon itself. Is this set the most definitive way to enjoy this series? Or will this end up being too good to be true? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Movie Review: Thirst (1979) (Blu-Ray)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, May 11, 2016 0 comments

Thirst is an Australian supernatural thriller about a woman named Kate Davis (played by Chantal Contouri) whom is just an average girl that loves to work and hang out with her boyfriend.  Sadly for Kate, she soon finds out that one of her relatives died, she will also soon find out that this is one moment that will lead to an experience she soon won't forget.  While Kate and her boyfriend are busy making love, a shadowy figure is watching them and reports to a group of what looks like doctors and business men.  It all turns out that they all want Kate because she is the last member of her family, a family that has a line of vampire royalty.  Yup, Kate is a vampire queen and gets kidnapped by the creepy people so they can ease her into her duty.  Rightfully enough, Kate wants nothing to do with them and all she wants to do is escape from them go back to having her normal life.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Movie Review: Eaten Alive (1977) (Blu-Ray)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, May 9, 2016 0 comments

Eaten Alive is an American horror movie directed by Tobe Hooper, yes, the same Tobe Hooper that directed the classic film, The Texas Chainsaw Horror Massacre (1974), and the fun but not as great, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986).  This film starts off with a runaway named Clara Wood (played by Roberta Collins), trying to be a hooker to earn ends meat (pun not intended) but after getting some sexual requests that even she doesn't want to do to a customer named Buck (played by Robert Englund), she quits and goes to spend the night at a hotel.  Clara happens to find a friendly looking place called the Starlight Hotel, sadly this place is operated by a creepy war veteran named Judd (played by Neville Brand).  Long story short, he isn't a fan of this woman's work, so he brutally murders her and disposes of the body.  Not too long after, we see a family of a husband, wife, and daughter all turn up to spend the night and all without knowing how crazed the hotel clerk is.  We also see Clara's family turn up in hopes of finding her (yeah, good luck with that).  Oh, one other thing that I forgot to mention, Judd has a big African Crocodile as a dear pet and he is willing to feed it anything... ANYTHING!  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Review: Ookibloks (2015) (PC/Steam)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, April 26, 2016 0 comments


Ookibloks is an action puzzle game where you play as a cute little monkey trying to get back all of his bananas and save the island from evil.  Defeating each of the evil bosses will earn you a special stone that you must return to a giant stone monkey god and the more stones you return, the more levels you get.  The way you have to beat the game is by bouncing off the walls and try to get all the banana blocks before the timer runs out, if you run out of time then the evil Devil Cat will be after you.  It's not just the Devil Cat you must worry about, you also have to deal with killer crabs, snappy sharks, and other horrors found on the island.  Are you brave enough to defeat evil and get back all your bananas in this off the wall game?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Review: Breakout Invaders (2015) (PC/Steam)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, April 13, 2016 0 comments



Breakout Invaders is an arcade style paddle game that combines ideas from classic games, Break-Out (1976) and Space Invaders (1978) and combines the ideas into a game where you are battling aliens with a ball and paddle.  That's right, you are taking the role of a paddle that must save Earth from legions of invaders from space in  one-hundred balls to the walls levels.  Yep, a very simple concept that can be summed up in a few short words but will it be a tasteful tribute to the past?  Or should they have gone for a game where you are battling blocks with a spaceship instead?  Either way, it'd be very interesting to see how this one turns out.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, April 5, 2016 0 comments


Ben 10 Game Generator 5D is an overhead puzzle game that has you playing as Ben Tennyson from the Ben 10 animated series.  The goal of the game is to get to the exit but there are puzzles and obstacles blocking your way from doing so,  you'll have to use your brain to get past them.  Ben also has the ability to transform into different aliens (yes, just like in the show) and you'll need to turn into a certain form for if you need to cross a certain terrain such as:  Fire, Water, and to push against conveyor belts.  This game sounds very simple and a bit on the boring side but hold that thought, this game might surprise you.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Review: WE ARE DOOMED (2015) (PC/Steam)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Saturday, February 27, 2016 0 comments


WE ARE DOOMED is an action packed twin stick space shooter with a very loud name that hurts my ears every time I read it. In this game you take control of a spaceship-alien-germ looking thingy (I can't tell what it is) flying through a space, blasting away though waves upon waves of bizarre looking aliens. Very simple concept that sounds like that it comes straight from a classic game found at your local arcade back in the 1980s.  The concept sounds really promising because I just happen to like classic arcade games with simple concepts ("Retro" is in my name after all). Will this game live up to my expectations or will it be so bad that it'll leave me saying, "WE ARE DOOMED!"? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Review: Bubsy Two-Fur (1993, 1994, 2015) (PC/Steam)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, February 24, 2016 0 comments


Bubsy Two-Fur is a compilation that includes the first two Bubsy games, Bubsy In Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993) (better known as Bubsy 1) and Bubsy 2 (1994).  Bubsy is 2D platformer that has you playing as Bubsy the Bobcat.  Bubsy has to stop the evil yarn aliens from taking over the planet, so he must traverse though extreme terrains such as: The desert, the carnival, green hills, all the way up to space.  Bubsy 2 has you battling the evil yarn aliens once again but in much more challenging and much more diverse levels.  He sure is a Bobcat with an attitude and some nostalgia appeal due to these being re-releases of old games but do these games still hold up today?  What could possibly go wrong?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Pixel Puzzles 2: Birds is not only the third Pixel Puzzle game in the series with the first being Pixel Puzzles: Japan (2014), the second being a zombie themed action puzzle spin-off title called Pixel Puzzles: Undeadz (2014). This new game also marks the start of the second series of Pixel Puzzle games and what on Earth is this game all about? This game has you putting together digital jigsaw puzzles that are all themed after birds, a type of animal that can be very pretty to look at and also one of nature's most tasty of creatures. The concept is very simple and straightforward but will there anything wrong with this game to where it makes this game fall into pieces (pun intended).

Arctic Adventure is a 2D platformer that has Nevada Smith from Pharaoh's Tomb (1990)* make his return in this adventurous sequel. Our hero has gotten great praise for his finds in Egypt and now a month later we see that our hero is after something new, a great Viking boat that is full of great Viking treasure. Our hero studies for even more months and just happens to find a clue in an old skull. The clue was for that of a map that can lead him to that treasure but sadly he needs to find more of the map. Long story short, our hero must go to the Arctic and explore the caves in hopes of finding pieces of a map that will lead him to the Viking gold. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Karate Master 2: Knock Down Blow is an arcade styled sports game that has you playing as martial arts enthusiast, Ken.  Ken has just got his black belt in karate, that doesn't mean that his journey has ended, it has only just barely gotten started.  In this sequel we see Ken is not only on the road to become a great warrior, he is also on the road to earn enough money and reputation so that he can open up his own dojo and train the next generation of karate champions.  In order to do so, he must do some hardcore training, fight in tournaments, defeat all of the other dojos in town, drive a forklift, and even defeat a bull for if he wants to complete his goal.  All this game needs is a cheesy training montage theme.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Posted by Retrokaiser On 0 comments


The Hurricane of Varstray -Collateral Hazard- certainly sounds like one hell of a storm but it is actually a vertical scrolling shoot 'em up set in space.  This game has you playing as a squadron of female pilots that are on a mission to fly to the enemies base and take them out with a direct assault.  The problem with this mission is that the trip is very long and is filled with enemy ships that'll do anything to stop you from accomplishing your mission.  Do you have what it takes to traverse though the hellish battle zone in space and survive this suicide mission?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Retro Game Review: Virtua Fighter Animation (1997), Sega Master System.

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, February 5, 2016 0 comments

Virtua Fighter Animation for the Sega Master System is a game that you would not expect from this console, especially since it came out in 1997, a time where this console was long obsolete, even in the Master System loving PAL region.  With the word "Animation" part of the title, you'd expect this game to not be a game at all, you'll be expecting this to be an animated feature based on the Virtua Fighter series.  This game is not a cartoon at all but what the title is referring to is the animated series that ran during the mid-1990's, hence why that word is part of the title.  With that all said, this game has a story to it that goes like this:  Akira is wandering around South China and runs across an eating contest and enters it in hopes of winning and stuffing his face full of food.  While Akira is stuffing his face, we cut to another character, Pai.  Pai is running from a gang of thugs who are after her to return her to her father, Lau.  Pai manages to lose the thugs but soon runs into Akira in the most personal way,  Akira falls onto her and gives her a nice big sloppy kiss on the lips.  Long story short, they team up and gain allies along the way to put a stop to Lau...  But then things soon get more complicated.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: The Decline of Western Civilization - Complete Collection (1981, 1988, 1998)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, January 28, 2016 0 comments



The Decline of Western Civilization Collection is a collection containing all three parts of the music documentary film series, The Decline of Western Civilization. These films document the punk rock scene of the late-1970's and mid-1990's, it also covers the heavy metal and glam rock scene of the late-1980's. These films aren't your typical music documentaries, they don't just solely focus on the music itself, they also share focus on the fandom and takes a look at the music scene from all sides of the story. Will it be as expansive as it sounds? Or will it be a series that has poorly declined in quality over the years? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Blu-Ray Review: Christmas Evil (AKA: You Better Watch Out) (1980)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, January 20, 2016 0 comments

You Better Watch Out (AKA Christmas Evil) is a Christmas themed black drama horror movie about a middle aged man named Harry, a man that is obsessed with wanting to become Santa Clause.  This movie opens up with a scene that takes place on Christmas Eve in the 1940's, where we see a young Harry with his mother and younger brother witnessing a Christmas miracle when they are visited by Santa Clause.  Shortly after that we see the kids are in bed talking about Christmas until Harry hears a noise downstairs and goes down to check it out.  Poor young Harry, what he saw is what no child should see and that's his mother getting her stocking stuffed with Santa's tongue...  Or to put it in an non-innuendo way, Harry walks down to see Santa performing oral sex on his mother.  All of this chimney sweeping sends Harry into shock, so he runs into the attic and smashes a snow globe and cuts himself with it (such an over reactor).  After that scene we cut to December of 1980 where we see a grown up Harry working at a toy factory (how ironic) and is looking forward to Christmas as he wants to become Santa Claus and keep the Christmas spirit alive, sadly his brother and co-workers don't share the same feelings, so Harry takes his Santa role too seriously and does something about it.  Whether they are on his naughty or nice list, they'll get what's coming to them where it'd be presents or  death.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Forever Knight - Season One (1992 - 1993)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 0 comments

Forever Knight might sound like a name of another crappy spin-off to the classic show, Knight Rider (1982 - 1986), it is actually a vampire themed cop show from the 1990's and from Canada.  This show is about a vampire named Nicholas Knight who is also a cop and a damned good one at that as his vampire abilities help him spot clues and criminals, he can also take a hit or two due to conventional weapons not being able to kill him.  Searching to stop crime is only a side quest, his real goal is to find the cure to his vampirism and make himself human once again as he is sick dining on blood and killing people, he also deeply regrets doing all the stuff he has done in the past.  This show might sound totally '90's but is it a show that should've stayed back in the 90's?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Camera Obscura (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, January 18, 2016 0 comments


Camera Obscura is a puzzling platformer game where you play as a female photographer that has decided to explore an old tower full of mystery and great dangers. This old tower is also in complete ruins, the tower is full of pits and platforms that make the tower darn near impossible to explore. Our heroine of this game has found a way to travel the tower as she has a magic camera that has the ability to capture an image of nearly any platform found in the game. Once you have captured an image you are free to move the image around for a short amount of time.  What you can do with the image is incredible, you can use the photographs to make all of the platforms you need to traverse deeper into the tower. Finally, we get to see a product of media that uses selfies in a way that's not pointless, annoying, or Kardashian... Or will it? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Barbarian Brawl (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, January 7, 2016 0 comments


Barbarian Brawl is a third-person online deathmatch combat game that has you playing one of six barbarians in an act of mortal combat. You will battle across a single battlefield full of traps, power-ups, meat, and a purple haze (hearing that makes me want to play my Jimi Hendrix albums) and the battle won't end until a warrior wins by gaining the most amount of kills. Characters you'll be playing in this game includes: Baabaar, the classic muscle bound warrior.  Crazy Eyes, a crazy looking bugger that runs around wearing animal skin.  Buttercup, the buxom beauty that will have all the guys go crazy.  Bryn Hildr, a woman that's fat but far from being lazy and she won't stop until she sings (hooray for bad puns).  Mr. Rotten, another crazy bugger that lives up to his name.  Lastly we have Klondike, a glutton for food, punishment, and raising hell. This game certainly has a basic concept but will it be too basic to enjoy? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition (a very clever pun on HD edition) is an action platforming puzzle game (that's some combination) that has you playing as a hot, hotshot police officer named Patrica Wagon. Patricia Wagon is on the job to go out and capture a bunch of hot criminals named the Hooligan Sisters as they have escaped from a police van that was taking them to prison. To arrest these criminals, Patricia Wagon must travel across levels that are full of block puzzles and these puzzles will require you to use your brain to figure out how to get to the criminals, all while trying to beat the levels in a fast time. Hot girls, hot action, hot puzzles, all in one hot platformer? This game must be too good to be true... Right? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

N2O (AKA N2O: Nitrous Oxide) is a Tempest-esk styled shmup (shoot 'em up) that has you playing as a lone space pilot that's on a mission to save the universe. What is he/she/other (could be a robot or an alien) saving the universe from? Well, the pilot is trying to save the universe from a giant alien that is filled with a legion of killer space bugs. The way the pilot must save the universe is by flying inside of the giant alien, blow it up from the inside and wipe out any space bug that they see. Does humanity even stand a chance?  Well, that'll depend on your skills but the real question is that is this game any good?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).
