Valkyria Chronicles

Totally agree with you ColinAlonso , I should have been more careful when choosing my words as truly the fault does lie with the developer and not the jobbing actor who accepted the contract. I know that Japanese culture is very different from ours, but sometimes I find it’s attitudes towards women ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (19.8.18) - 333: Valkyria Chronicles

Valkyria Chronicles is one of those games I can remember reading about back when we got all of our gaming info in print, rather than via the internet. The PlayStation magazine to which I subscribed was particularly glowing about this game, but being a penniless teenager at the time it was one of tho...

Re: 325: Shovel Knight

Hand on heart, I love this game. It was the first retro style game I downloaded for my PS4 which made me feel like I was a kid again; scooched up next to my TV in my PJs, playing what for all intents and purposes might be a Mega Man or Super Mario clone.
