Gaming: Rule of Rose

Rule of RoseGenre and release?

                It was released in 2006 by 505 and Punchline for the PS2 however it was never released in the UK, due to controversy with its content, basically some fearmongering douche bag politician spread some lies about it. It wasn’t banned but neither was it released, 505 just never let it free. Some copies were made though so if you have tons of disposable income you might want to get yourself a special magical UK copy. There’s one on Amazon at the moment for £699.99. If you are a normal person then I’d say get yourself a European copy, I have a French one which cost about £40 and it is worth that. You have language options anyway and all European copies should work on all European consoles so you should be good. If you’re American then you’re in luck, 505 and Sony disproved the lies spread about the game over here so you guys could get it. Not sure how rare it’ll be for you though. Continue reading

Gaming Monday: Catherine

Catherine is a puzzle game.
This may not be obvious at first but I promise you it is. What it actually seems like is a noir-esque anime about a guy who gets drunk with his friends and is afraid of commitment.

The premise of the game is a late night television show about different myths. This one is: “if you fall in a dream and don’t wake up before you hit the bottom, you die”. This relates to the puzzles, but I’ll come back to that.

Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon – The Verdict

Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark moon

Luigi's Mansion

Genre and time?

It’s a kids’ game, by which I mean rated 7+ (It’s not for Kids, NOTHING is for kids!) but it’s a kind of horror-esque dungeon crawler, with small puzzle parts. In fact it could even be called a mission based survival horror for kids, or should I say for those who don’t want to be haunted by nightmares. Tt does actually get quite difficult to survive sometimes and who knows when a ghosty might pop out and laugh at you? It’s a direct sequel to Luigi’s Mansion for the GameCube, because Nintendo don’t like change.  It’s recent, released in March for the 3DS. It’s definitely a horror; it’s got ghosts in it!
