Years ago, cats and dragons fought a bloody war, but ultimately, the destined cats known as Dragonblood claimed victory. Now, the dragons have returned, and it’s up to you, a destined kitty, to take up your sword and protect the land once again.
I love RPGs. I also love cats. With that in mind, it was inevitable that I would eventually turn my attention to Cat Quest, an open world RPG set in a land entirely populated by cute kitties. Yes, I had recently been burned by Spacecats With Lasers, but the Cat Quest demo convinced me that my money really would be well spent this time around. Continue reading

Last week, I saw an intriguing article on My Nintendo News, promising that a game called Spacecats With Lasers would be heading to Switch the following week. I was immediately excited – I love cats, I love space, and the idea of being a spacecat shooting things up with lasers immediately appealed to me. I was well aware that I was probably just being suckered in by the name, but I reassured myself that the screenshots looked sufficiently exciting. Continue reading

The Shin Megami Tensei series and its spin-offs are often packed with various demons from numerous mythologies. It’s a lot of work for any designer, and so it’s no wonder that the finished products often vary in aesthetic quality. For every majestic, awe inspiring beast, there’s something that looks, well, downright disturbing. In this article, we pick out eleven of the dodgiest looking demons. Continue reading
We all have to fill in the time until Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out one way or another. Whilst we’re waiting, let’s take another retrospective look over the series so far, and rank all the games – from worst to best. Continue reading
Around ten years ago, I got my hands on a copy of Macross Plus: Ultimate edition DVD, and spent a couple of evenings watching the OVA and movie. This was my first exposure to one of Japan’s biggest mecha franchises, but also the only part that had made it across, unadulterated, to the UK. I knew that Macross was all about mecha and singing, but I was watching it out of context, with no other knowledge of that universe. And whilst it is meant to be a standalone story, it did suffer for being watched on its own. Who or what are the Zentradi? What are the importance of variable fighters? What even is the titular ‘Macross’? None of these are addressed in the OVA, so if you don’t already know, all of that is lost on you. As you can imagine, therefore, I didn’t rate Macross Plus very highly. Continue reading
Last winter, I finally got around the playing Shadow of the Colossus. In the time it took me to finally play the game, I had already upgraded my original PS2 copy to the PS3 HD remaster – and now there’s a PS4 remake on the way. The trailers for the remake soon attracted comments from people eager to buy yet another copy of the game, or even a PS4 upon which to play it. Clearly, Shadow of the Colossus has a keen fan following – but is it really such an amazing masterpiece? Continue reading
Nothing improves a game quite like having all the characters wear cats on their heads.
As we count down towards the release of Tales of Berseria, I’ve been spending time with the previous game in the series – Tales of Zestiria. I had put Zestiria aside in 2015 after being underwhelmed with it, and upon returning to the game, it did little to acquit itself.
Since 2002, Kingdom Hearts has transported us to a universe filled with different Disney worlds. Sora and his friends have travelled far and wide, but there are yet more places I really hope the series eventually visits one day. Continue reading
For the first time in a while, I’m actually watching a fair amount from an anime season. It remains to be seen whether I can keep it up, or what will go by the wayside, but for now, here’s my look at a select crop from the Autumn (or Fall, if you will) anime season. Continue reading
