So, following the recent reviews we put out for both book 2 and book 3 of the Samurai of Hyuga series, I thought it’d only be proper to follow up with our usual spoiler talks. Normally, we’d only do a spoiler talk for something that we’d fully and definitely completed, but seeing as the series … Continue reading Samurai of Hyuga book 1-3 spoiler talk
So, the review for book 3 of the Samurai of Hyuga series is still under work, and should hopefully be finished next week. But in the meantime, I wanted to sort of take some time to look at everyone’s favourite sociopath, Jun/ko. This whole analysis started off as a tangent on why the golden-eyed Ronin … Continue reading Character Analysis – Jun/ko
Final Fantasy XV is a game that owes a lot to its characters and whoever wrote them. This is a game that’s plagued with issues (mainly its lack-lustre combat and sometimes patchy story) that I absolutely adore anyway, and the characters are a big part of that. While the slew of likeable side-characters is definitely … Continue reading Character analysis: Ignis

As always, we’ll be going forward with the idea you’ve already completed the game, hence won’t be … Continue reading Gravity Rush – Spoiler talk
Well, I said I would do it, and much like the spoiler talk following the Yakuza 0 review, I didn’t see much point in delaying it. In this piece, we’ll take a look at the more spoiler-centric things that we couldn’t talk about during the I Am Setsuna review. So just to make sure we’re … Continue reading I Am Setsuna – spoiler talk
A review trying to hold off on bird puns. Video games, much like almost every piece of media ever devised, needs to have a hook. There has to be some element to them that draws in others, otherwise said piece of media is probably fated to fade away. This phenomenon can be seen across all … Continue reading Aviary Attorney review –
Hey! This is the post where Oliver gushes over all the stuff he couldn’t talk about in the previously posted review (here: https://oliverculling.wordpress.com/2017/02/20/yakuza-0-review/). Be warned that its spoilers all the way down from here! So, Yakuza 0. I’m pretty sure that the review made it abundantly clear that I really like this game, and would … Continue reading Yakuza 0 – Spoiler talk
