Prinny Presents NIS Classics Volume 2 – review

Prinny Presents are collections of classic NIS games re-released on Switch. Like the first part, this, second volume, contains two console products in one convenient package. Those are Makai Kingdom: Reclaimed and Rebound and ZHP: Unlosing Ranger Vs Darkdeath Evilman. This being my first experience with both, I was really excited, especially about ZHP. Prinny Presents 2 starts with games’ selection menu. After choosing one of the two – the players arrive at the specific game’s main screen.

Blue Pill or Red – The Caligula Effect 2 Review

The first Caligula Effect came out on PS Vita – with a later, improved Overdose Edition for Switch, PS4 and PC. Unlike its predecessor, The Caligula Effect 2 isn’t a PS Vita re-release.

The giant dice of doom – Slice and Dice review

The giant dice of doom – Slice and Dice review

There’s a certain mysticism to the rolling dice. It’s a strange, almost ritual feeling, as you shuffle them in your hand. Then, as the bones hit the hard wooden surface – the sound is like nothing else. It’s akin to crackling flames, or a storm behind a window. It connects you, in some way, to those who lived here before. It brings you back across time, to the days of crowded taverns and bustling bazaars. You can almost imagine sitting across a table from some merchant from faraway lands, or a soldier, returned after long campaigns.
