Quick Shaves: Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited

Just as I was thinking I could use a good reason to dust off my VITA, NIS goes and gives me one with Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited. As you may have guessed Revisited is a port of the PS3 version of Disgaea 4, but as was the case with Disgaea 3’s VITA port, a fair …

Quick Shaves: Alien Breed (PS Mobile)

Oh mobile games, such promise yet such shortfalls, whatever shall we do with you. Hell we’ve even gotten to the point where venerated PC classics can be released on your platform yet there’s always something off about them. In this case it’s simply a matter of feeling unnecessary.

And a new feature type appears, the Quick Shave, because as the line between big games and small games becomes thinner and thinner we need to expand how we review things. In the past we never reviewed smaller iOS type games and with good reason as they generally didn’t require explanation, they’re dead simple and …
