  • Mini Review Kaze and the Wild Masks (PS4) - A Tough But Fun 2D Platformer

    Driving me Kaze

    Kaze and the Wild Masks is a 2D platformer described by developers PixelHive as '90s inspired'. This is definitely accurate, as there’s a majorly nostalgic vibe, from the slightly retro feeling artwork and music to the lack of dialogue. It simultaneously feels years old and brand new. The titular Kaze, an anthropomorphic bunny,...

  • Mini Review Fairy Tail - Faithful Anime Adaptation Is a Fan Pleaser

    They lived Happy-ly ever after

    Fairy Tail follows the plot of the anime, set from around the end of the Tenrou Island arc to approximately the end of the Avatar arc.
