Review: Acceleration of Suguri X Edition


“Incomprehensible plot setups and outrageous situations are nothing new in the vast and peculiar world of Japanese gaming culture. So a game starring a gaggle of pint-sized android schoolgirls that duke it out in a vitriolic war over who gets to eat the last pudding on earth seems pretty tame on the weirdness scale when compared to some of Japan’s edgier offerings. A quirky gem hailing from Japan’s thriving indie-game development scene, Acceleration of Suguri X Edition packs an oddball mix of bullet-hell blasting and competitive arena fighting that doesn’t take itself seriously at all. That’s mostly a good thing because the frenetic brawling action found in this small package is well paired with the game’s outlandish vibe.”

Review: Muscle March


“Who doesn’t want to see a dancing polar bear in a tight Speedo gyrate around to thumping techno and bright flashing colors? If you recoiled in horror after that last sentence, then hold on to your biscuits, because Namco has just served up one of the most bizarre WiiWare games we’ve ever played. Straight out of Japan, Muscle March is about a gang of ultra muscular dudes in tight g-strings flexing their manliness in different poses while chasing after criminals who repeatedly steal their protein powder. Uh… yeah.”
