    Resident Evil 4 Retro Reflection

    October 23, 2014 | by Ryan Dean

    I’m going to start this piece with a warning, not about spoilers or explicit content, but simply about perspective. This is one of my favourite games of all time, and along those lines I actually have very little negative to say about it...

    Be warned, this retro will include extremely un-academic, thoroughly adolescent colloquialisms like “cool”, “awesome” and “bad-ass”, because Oni is the type of game that’s simply impossible to describe without using them...

    Rez Retro Reflection

    May 7, 2014 | by Rhys Wood
