Sponge-Bong Hemp-Pants - Episodes 1 - 3. Summary/Review

So it has come to this, eh.  Kaiser Sensei reviewing a series of SpongeBob parody skits called SpongeBong HempPants.  Yup, I'm doing Green Diamonds job.  I'm not going to go over the history of this parody, who do I look like? Nicktendo? (Seriously.  Check him out).  No! I'm just going to do what I always do and report what I see and how I felt about it.  Yeah, I know it's pointless to do something like this on a series that runs for less than ten minutes.  However, Red Diamond requested this and I don't want him punishing me.  So, here it is.  Kaiser Sensei's summary and review of Spongebong HempPants.

Akihabara - Feel the Rhythm Remixed (Nintendo Switch) Review

You a fan of puzzle games and want to go to Japan but can't afford to?  Well, I can't help you there.  What I can help you with is by telling you whether or not that this game is any good.  What game am I talking about?

Energy Cycle Edge (Playstation Vita) Review

It's nice to see that the Vita isn't fully dead yet but that doesn't mean that everything it gets from here on now onwards will be a modern classic (or a re-release of a classic).  No matter the case, I'm very excited to see something new for this underrated handheld, even if it is a release from Sometimes You.  This is Energy Cycle Edge!  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article).

I love racing games but I do wish that we got more stuff like the arcade games I grew up with.  You know, Daytona USA, Sega Rally, Outrun.  Yeah, I really crave something that's like a Sega arcade racer but with an original twist.  This game looks like that it ticks those boxes and I sure hope that it's a good game to boot.  This is Horizon Chase Turbo.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article).

Rage in Peace (PC) Review

You know it's a bold move when a title of a video game is telling you what you're in for by just the name alone.  Yes, that's the case for this game, Rage in Peace.  That's all fine and dandy but will the game be any good? Will it be one of those games that has a cool name but no substance?  Enough of the hackney intro, on to the main event.

Thief Simulator Review (Steam)

A name like Thief Simulator states exactly what one can expect from this game. A first-person game where you take control of a thief with the simple goal of making money at the expense of others. Launching at an affordable $20 price tag with less than impressive looking trailers, does the game succeed in thievery from the purchase alone? Or is there actually some fun to be found here?

VR Troopers Episode 09 Review - Kaitlin's Little Helper

Will the Troopers be able to...just click 'Read More' if you dare to read the summary of this snooze-fest.

Bouncy Bob (Nintendo Switch) Review

One thing I have noticed about digital Nintendo Switch releases is that there are a lot of ports of PC games.  Most of these games were released for cheap on the PC and it's nice to see that they are also being released for cheap on the Switch as well.  This can lead to a whole bunch of problems for the Nintendo Switch, with the main one being that it leaves the console library opened up to being full of shovelware.  What's this all got to do with today's review?  Well this game just happens to be one of these PC ports.  Will this port be the beginning of the end of quality games for the Nintendo Switch?.. Obviously not!  That honor goes to Vroom in the Night Sky.  I'm sure that Bouncy Bob won't be that bad but will it be any good? (Click on "Read More" to read the full article).

Heavy Burger Review (PC, Switch, Xbox One, PS4): A Mash-Up We Always Wanted, Undercooked To Mediocrity

Time Played: 80 Minutes (Completed all Easy Challenges and 4 matches with Hard difficulty CPU opponents)
Platform: Steam for the PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One (Not Released Yet), PS4 (Not Released Yet)
Price: $7.99 on Steam, $19.99 on Switch, likely $19.99 for PS4 and Xbox One
Overall Score: 5.5/10 (5 is average): Only one game mode and 7 arenas to battle in. Some annoying gameplay features quickly wear out it's appeal.

Released on November 2 of 2018 by Flying Tiger Entertainment, Heavy Burger is a twin-stick shooter where up to four local players battle each other across seven different arenas to deposit their money in a bank. Utilizing much of the art from Data East games, the idea of mixing Bad Dudes and Lock N' Chase is a recipe for awesome. Does the potential hold up against the hype?

Cyber City 2157: The Visual Novel (PC/Steam). Uncensored Review

Sometimes I hate being a video game reviewer! Why? Because sometimes, just sometimes I get a game that's so terrible that it makes me want to go crazy!  One good example is a game called The Housewife, a game I reviewed a while ago in my pre-Dark Rider days.  Cyber City 2157 may not be as bad as what The Housewife was but it's still pretty bad.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article).
