We Review: 3D Fantasy Zone II: Tears of Opa-Opa

Anyone who has seen or played Fantasy Zone will instantly recognize the insanely cute graphical stylings of an insanely difficult game (one of the few games that belong to a genre called, appropriately, “cute-’em-ups”). It has a long and very checkered history, with ports onto almost a dozen different platforms, including the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Megadrive, and of course, an appearance in video arcades. The 3D release of this game has now been released on the 3DS, and I get cute to bring this review to you.

Here’s Your #MissionSamsung Infographic

Did you know that since its inception in the late 30s up until the early 90s, three very distinct stars were featured in Samsung’s logo? They were to represent something “big, numerous, and powerful.” And big it is — the Electronics arm of Samsung is the world’s largest technology company (by sheer revenue). And just a couple of months ago, our local Samsung Electronics South Africa broke the Guinness World Record for the most selfies taken in one day using new Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 range of smartphones.

Do you know what else is verging on a record?

We Review: Bloodborne

From Software are famous for their extremely hard games, and from Demon’s Souls to Dark Souls to Dark Souls II, you know you’re not going to have an easy time of this developer’s games. And like button-mashing masochists, everyone keeps going back for more punishment. Myself included. And this brutality is why we’re going to review Bloodborne, From Software’s first PS4 outing.

We Review: Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros. Edition

If you’ve not heard of Puzzle and Dragons before, odds are you don’t play many match-three style games on Android or iOS devices. The game is insanely huge, especially in Asian markets, and now the game is coming to Nintendo 3DS, along with a new Super Mario Bros. mode. I got a chance to review the bundle, so let’s dive in.

An Eye on Convenience Part 2: The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS

With its #CreateWithCanon campaign, Canon South Africa wants to encourage the use of its cameras in the urban creative and photography hobbyist markets.

You may recall my first #CreateWithCanon post where I had a gander at the PowerShot SX600 HS, its build quality, connectivity features, and how easily it fit into my pocket. I did gloss over the shooting modes, so let’s take a look at the finer details in this post.

We Review: Mario Kart 8 DLC: Animal Crossing x Mario Kart

Hello, fellow Mario Kart 8 lovers! We’re back with an exciting review of the new DLC tracks that launched yesterday.

We Review: Grand Theft Auto V (PC)

My last review of Grand Theft Auto V was for last-gen systems, and since then, it’s received a release on current-gen consoles, and now a belated release on PC. Either way, the game is huge, and on PC it’s crazy huge, physically speaking. The retail version contains a crazy 7 discs, while purchasing the download version on Steam will run you around 60GB. Hope you weren’t thinking of using your regular capped account for it! Incidentally, grabbing the retail version nets you a nifty map that you can frame or hang on your wall or use to wrap a small body in. Since the games are functionally similar, my prior review still stands, so I’ll be highlighting the differences of the PC version of the console version.
