Bullet Girls is Like Senran Kagura Mixed with Call of

This summer Japan is getting another steamy Vita title, this time named Bullet Girls. The game was developed by D3, the same company behind the similarly cladly dressed Onechanbara. Featuring a mix between boobs and guns, Bullet Girls seems like a match made in heaven.   The game follows highschool girls that are a part of Ranger Crops. […]Read More

Hi. My name’s Parallel. And I’m an MMO alt-aholic. I have so many different personas that I’ve forgotten my real name. Whew. Feels good to get that off my chest! So, what kind of gamer are you?

Doujin Classics: Full Metal Sister Marilu (PC)

Considering the tremendous popularity of the Metal Slug franchies its no wonder that there would be doujin games that heavily borrow its gameplay. Full Metal Sister Marilu tries to spice things up by having nuns fight against aliens and instead of driving a tank you get to pilot a mech called a Holy Jacket.   Aside from […]Read More

Don’t miss: Diadra Empty

Oh the chaos! I’ve never played a shooter where unbridled chaos has been so beautifully implemented. You can’t really call this ‘Bullet Hell’. To my mind, Bullet Hell conjures up something altogether more structured and meticulously choreographed – Diadra Empty laughs in the face of ‘patterns’, or ‘order’ in favour of total madness.   The experience […]Read More

Satazius Review (PC)

Of all the games on Rice Digital, we would understand if you though this was the ‘worst’ – taking a quick look at the screens thinking ,‘hmm… maybe this isn’t the best of the line up.’ We have to stand by our principles on this one though – we won’t ever put a game up […]Read More

Ether Vapor Remaster Review (PC)

I have a genuine passion for shooters, I really do, but I have a confession to make – as the years roll by I’m becoming increasingly less skilled. My reflexes just aren’t as sharp as they used to be – and while I love the likes of eXceed, Touhou, DoDonPachi etc, the chances of a […]Read More

A lot of you probably already know about Hikware – a doujin developer that consists of just one man – Hikoza T Ohkubo.
