Time travel has always been an intriguing concept, but it’s also a mechanically tricky and inherently cliché idea that is very rarely as exciting as it should be. Often used without any real though, some of it’s most well known applications in film, television and literature are remarkably haphazard, and the plot holes generated as a result are problematic. 5bp’s Magnum Opus does not approach it’s subject matter lightly, and the result is scientifically believable, narratively sound, and emotionally riveting. It’s time to open the Steins;Gate!
Business is expanding, and the last couple of weeks on Dracula’s Cave have been the busiest yet. Our ‘.wordpress’ origins are no more, and we now have the very fancy ‘draculascave.co’ domain name. I’ve also added my twitter feed to the site, so please follow that if you’d like updates for new content as well as general musings. Finally I’ve just recently written the first retro themed article on the site, and hopefully this will be followed by many more. I’m going to try adding maybe about one retro review a week from now on, so look out for that! In the mean time, please enjoy your stay at Dracula’s Cave.
Dangan Ronpa is one of my favourite PSP games (full review here), and its story is both involving and thrilling. The strong source material works in favour of the anime retelling, and whilst Dangan Ronpa: The Animation may feel a little familiar, the combination of a superb narrative and impressive presentation is a difficult formula to beat.
It’s been just over two weeks since I started Dracula’s Cave and I want to thank everyone who’s been reading the stuff on it and helping make it a success! The next week looks to be one of the few final weeks before Christmas where there aren’t any big releases, so I’m going to use this time to try some new things. Firstly I’m going to add some more to the review section, and will be reviewing a mix of old and new games. Also the site is currently a little light on anime content, expect the first anime reviews to start this week too. Then with any luck, this time next week I might just be reviewing the new GTA game…. Until then, please enjoy your stay at Dracula’s Cave!
Dead or Alive is just as great now as it was 10 years ago. The formula has always worked, and the series has often been about making minor amendments and enhancements to an already superb fighting game. Dead or Alive 5 added the graphical and presentational values the game was previously lacking, but one year on and this enhanced version of the game is going to feel awfully familiar to anyone who picked up the original last year.
