Gradius V Review (PlayStation 2)

Classic shooting straight to the core

April 14, 2015 - The Vic Viper's latest shoot 'em up thrill-ride has finally arrived on PlayStation 3. While creating it back in the day, Konami opted to hand it over to Treasure instead of developing it in-house, but was that a good idea? Who am I kidding, of course it was!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Review

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Review (PlayStation)

This castle is a creature of Chaos

April 8, 2015 - With countless Metroidvania games being released, it's a good time to revisit the origins of the genre. Symphony of the Night boldly took the Castlevania series in a new direction by incorporating exploration as the main gameplay mechanic in a similar fashion to the already established Metroid series. The result was one of the greatest video games ever crafted. As the 100th review on Video Chums, I invite you to join me in celebrating this brilliant example of gaming perfection in a modern review of a timeless classic.

Rack N Ruin Review

Rack N Ruin Review (PlayStation 4)

Destroying the planet sure isn't going to be easy

April 3, 2015 - Gamers tend to ignore games that require patience before they start to shine. The same could be said about modern classics such as Demon's Souls which took a great deal of time before it become popular. As far as I can tell, this tendency is due to the inability to give unfamiliar experiences a chance. Such is the case with Rack N Ruin. On the surface, it appears as if it's yet another throwaway indie title, but at its core, it's one of the most rewarding and challenging old-school adventures that I have ever had the privilege to go on.
