Four Sided Fantasy Review

Publisher Serenity Forge‘s latest title, Four Sided Fantasy, certainly did not disappoint. This indie side scrolling adventure provided everything that we were looking for; dynamic gameplay elements, solid artwork and overall tone. It all makes for a fun playthrough. Let’s dive into the details of why we enjoyed it. Four Sided Fantasy is a game where the player utilizes utilizes the edges and limitations of the screen to solve puzzles.  So when the player hits a difficult patch or a seemingly unreachable jump, they can freeze the frame and use physics (shown in the image above) to cross these puzzles. This characteristic is very much like Portal except that it utilizes the fixed frame of the screen....


Deadly Tower of Monsters Review

When Deadly Tower of Monsters was announced, it had a lot going for it. There was plenty of charm, and even more b-movie references. As a film buff, I was excited to see what ACE Team could do with in their latest outing. After all, there’s so much you can do when you’re working with a classic science fiction style. Unfortunately, it takes more than charming humor to make a good game. To have a good game, you need to have good gameplay. While Deadly Tower of Monsters has a compelling setting, that’s about all it has going for it as the rest of the game is brought down by its many faults. As soon as you...


Bravely Second Trailer Previews New Jobs

Today, the official Nintendo UK YouTube channel began streaming a new trailer for Square Enix’s Bravely Second: End Layer, the upcoming sequel to the massively popular JRPG Bravely Default. This new trailer reveals new jobs (or classes for those of you who are uneducated) within the sequel, something that is of great importance to any fan of the series. The video also previews everything that comes with the game’s collector’s edition. Check out the trailer for yourself below: As the video states, the addition of twelve new jobs brings the total job count up to a whopping thirty. Some of you might say that that’s only six more classes than what was available in...

Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow get Special Bundles

We learned in the November 2015 Nintendo Direct that the classic titles of Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow would be coming to the Nintendo eShop this February. But today, the Pokémon Company revealed that the titles would be bundled with special edition Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS handheld consoles with the titles pre-installed. The North American release will feature two unique 3DS systems that feature Charizard and Blastoise on the faceplates. The system will have Red or Blue installed to the system (obviously matching the color you buy) as well as a home menu theme themed around the special edition handheld. These bundles are to ship the same day as the titles release on the Nintendo eShop, which is set for February 27th....

Tales of Berseria International Release Confirmed

The official blog of the the long running Tales series has confirmed that the newest iteration in the series,  Tales of Berseria, will be heading overseas to North America and Europe. The title will be available on Playstation 4 and PC. The Playstation 3 version of the game will not be leaving Japan, so unfortunately you’re out of luck if you don’t have a gaming PC or haven’t upgraded to the newest Sony console. On the bright side, Tales of Berseria will have subtitles in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian. Details on a dub have yet to be revealed. Bandai Namco Entertainment America has since published an announcement trailer for the international Playstation 4 and PC...


The Deadly Tower of Monsters Will Have Much Free-Falling

A new trailer for The Deadly Tower of Monsters has been let loose, and it showcases a lot of our favorite director along with what seems to be a lot of free-falling action. Considering the latest trailer on the subject, I’m inclined to say that free-falling will play a big part in the game. It looks like it could be fun! Now to get Tom Petty out of my head. ATLUS describes the game: Green screen! Lasers! And a tower full of deadly monsters! When Dick Starspeed crash-lands his rocket on the planet of Gravoria, he’ll have to fight through dinosaurs, nukular ants, and other skilled, costumed stuntmen to make it up the deadly...


Mega Man Legacy Collection Sees Limited Physical Release

In a day and age where everything is readily available in digital form, buying things in physical form doesn’t necessarily make a lot of sense. Why take up more space with something when you can own the same thing digitally? Because I still love getting my hands on things, that’s why. If you’re like me and still like to pick up physical copies of games, you might just be adding another title to that list. The Rockman Classics Collection official site (If you’re not in the know, Mega Man is known as Rockman in Japan) has announced that the Mega Man Legacy Collection will be seeing a limited physical release in Japan....


Don’t Starve: Giant Edition Xbox One Review

Don’t Starve: Giant Edition for the Xbox One promises to deliver a surreal experience, especially if you have never visited the franchise before. Indie Developer Klei Entertainment has a knack for delivering a tense gaming experience, even in an environment that feels lighthearted. Klei also succeeds in creating a sense of fear without having to depend on the realistic horror survival games that seem to be a dime a dozen recently. It’s hard for me to break down Don’t Starve: Giant Edition because, as a survival game, the goal is simply to survive and (as you’d guess) not starve for as long as possible. So I’m going to do this review in segments focused...


Dark Souls Beaten By Player Using Only His Voice

While I’m a huge fan of every entry in the Souls series, Dark Souls will always hold a special place in my heart. Partly because it was the Souls game that really pulled me into the series and beat for the first time, but also I believe that it’s still the best Souls game there is. I’ve found Dark Souls to be more fun and challenging that it’s predecessor Demon’s Souls, as well as the entries that have followed, Dark Souls II and Bloodborne. With the Souls games being known for their difficulty, it’s only natural that some players would be interested in making an already intense experience drastically more so. Of all the players ramping up...


Digimon World Next Order Teaser Site Opens

After waiting for what seemed like a really long time, the teaser site for the upcoming game Digimon World Next Order has finally gone live. The official site details that the game is expected to be released in Japan in 2016. Other than the typical links to social media sites, the only news the website has is that it went live today. The site does not give any indication to the story or another other aspects of the game. Once Bandai Namco releases more information we will keep our followers up to date.

New Rodea the Sky Soldier Trailer Showcases Gameplay and Story

There are just a few more months less until Rodea the Sky Soldier launches here in North America, and today NIS America has posted a new trailer that details the story and gameplay of the game. As so many people in the comments aptly describe, it looks like a combination of NiGHTS and Sonic the Hedgehog, and yes — that does sound like a good thing. You can check out the trailer below. NIS America describes the game: 1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine...


North America Release Date for Persona 5 Announced

With little to no presence of Atlus at E3 this year, I was left with the idea that we would have to wait for the latest iteration of Persona until some time in 2015. However, according to the official North American website for Persona 5, Altus USA will be bringing the newest entry in the Persona series stateside later this year. This was a nice little surprise for fans of Persona, as until this point we only knew that the Japanese release date for Persona 5 was slated for later 2015. For those of you unfamiliar with Persona or interested in learning more, here’s a trailer for Persona 5 that has some gameplay and...


Akiba’s Trip – Undead and Undressed – Nudity Kills

Every once in a while, I encounter a video game that just outright fascinates me. Whether because of interesting mechanics, nutty concepts, or some intangible X-Factor, these games consume my time and leave me in a state of awe. In the summer of 2002, at the ripe old age of nine years old, it was Mr. Mosquito. During one of my first forays into the Let’s Play community in 2010, it was Octodad. And now, smackdab in the middle of my first few months here at BentoByte, it’s Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed. I should clarify at the outset that finding a game fascinating does not necessarily translate to a...
