by Nazih Fareson November 15, 2016
A year and a half after the first game, Bandai Namco (or Namco Bandai) finally launched the sequel Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, with a slightly extended cast of characters, adding some key features, but is it really enough to fix the flaws of the original game? Before I start, I should let you all know that […]

Review: Blade Arcus from Shining Battle Arena

by Mazen Abdallahon July 30, 2016
There’s a whole world of Japanese games out there that I know little to nothing about. I recently added the Shining series to that list, when I found out about it through this game. Essentially, Blade Arcus is a fighting game that takes characters from those two RPG’s and pits them against each other in […]

Released couple of months ago, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 set the bar high when it comes to cell-shading and anime styled fighting game, nullifying any kind of previous release such as the Dragon Ball Z series (which has seen better days).

Review: Koihime Enbu

by Febronia Armiaon June 5, 2016
I don’t know if this is a common thing that tends to happen, but I for one have this avid refusal to play male characters in a fighting game if there are female characters available. This itch prevails even if the male characters are in a higher abundance or allow for a better play style suitable […]

Review: Mortal Kombat XL

Mortal Kombat X offered enough quality to its release in April 2015 to make their way to the gates of the biggest tournaments of fighting games, including EVO Championship Series, but also its own Mortal Kombat Cup for now two year.

by Nazih Fareson February 22, 2016
It’s been 7 years since the first version of Street Fighter IV came out, followed every two years by a more reconciled version to end it in 2014 with Ultra Street Fighter IV. With over four versions (Vanilla, Super, Arcade Edition, Ultra) released of the previous opus, Capcom has lost some of the players along the way, tired […]

Besides being one of the cult stories of the manga history, Dragon Ball is a series whose popularity has incredible longevity. This popularity which despite the disappointments, makes us wait for Goku’s newest console adventures. Dragon Ball Xenoverse was no exception to the rule.

Review: Mortal Kombat X

by Nazih Fareson April 17, 2015
If I mention gruesome fighting, blood spill, spines torn and cracked, you will probably think Mortal Kombat, one of the most violent gaming licenses in the world. After almost four full years, NetherRealm is back to perfect its already successful recipe that was launched with the Mortal Kombat 2011 reboot, now dethroned by its youngest, […]


Review: Super Smash Bros. Wii U

by Nazih Fareson January 1, 2015
With the failure to appeal to third-party publishers with its current generation of console, Nintendo could at least count on itself, with one last bullet in their gun barrel for the holiday season. Super Smash Bros. is already making a hit on the 3DS, with over 3.2 Million sales, it is this time for the […]
