Balan Wonderworld received a demo for each available format, and being intrigued by the stylings of Yuji Naka and Naoto Oshima of the Balan Company, I figured I would give the trial a spin. Based solely on the announcement trailer that debuted the game to the public, I was expecting way more Nights Into Dreams […]

The King of Fighters XV: Hero Team

Details on the upcoming The King of Fighters XV have been a slow drip, but they are coming more frequently as SNK promises a 2021 game release. I invested in The King of Fighters XIV at launch and stuck with it longer than Street Fighter V, but not many of my friends and online acquaintances […]

Opening an imported PS2 game shipment

Right after the holiday, I placed an import game order with Genki Video Games – a fantastic source of Japanese video games. In a recent browsing of the company’s wares, I found an item that was long overdue for my collection. As a huge fan of Bust a Groove/Bust a Move, my collection had gone […]
