Review of Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

I’m willing to put up with a lot of crap in order to enjoy a good idea and that tolerance for all things awful served me quite well when it came to Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. Acting as a¬†gaiden to the core Ninja Gaiden series, Yaiba is a unique little side story featuring characters and …

Review of Weapon Shop de Omasse

CTR-N-JBKE_logo_glow

It’s time for yet another fantastic entry in Level 5′s GUILD01 series, in which they let various creative types put together a game. We’ve gotten crazy WW2 bug fighting from Keiji Inafune and heartfelt giant monster fights courtesy of Kaz Ayabe, but now we have an RPG viewed from the other side of the counter …
