‘WRC 7′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Without putting too fine a point on it, WRC 7 is a hard game to recommend. I’m a huge fan of rally racing and rally games, yet the gameplay in Kyloton’s third installment of the WRC series (the others being WRC 5 and 6) feels as if it has barely advanced in three years. Considering […]

by Phil Wheat

In 2016, GalGun: Double Peace changed the world forever. There was moe as far as the eye could see, as gamers were shooting their love everywhere, but then, the stark coldness of reality set in. Real life is not kawaii enough, they lamented. I want to go back to the Doki-Doki zone, they said. Well, […]

‘Last Day of June’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I don’t often start a review with a spoiler warning, but this time I feel I should. If you’ve not played Last Day of June, it is best to play it through before reading a review. If you are willing to have minor spoilers that will inevitably leak through, then you have been warned. Suffice […]

In Rabi-Ribi, players control Erina, a so-called “Bunny Girl” who begins the game trapped inside a cardboard box, having been transformed from an actual bunny into her current, humanoid form. It’s a weird intro, and the very basic pixel art of the main game juxtaposes with the finely drawn, anime-style stills of Erina kneeling in […]
