    Review Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae

    Live by the sword

    Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is a bit like Devil May Cry on a budget – a really tight budget.

    The term 'indie' has been abused over the past 18 months or so. Originally intended for the exclusive use of moustache twiddling hipsters, this was a word used to describe the most independent of endeavours – preferably those programmed by a middle-aged man clad in a Reebok tracksuit, working from the corner of his Mum's...
