QCF: Super Time Force

dmit it, regardless of acknowledging the potential gravity of any of the possible penalties for trifling with such affairs, if you could affect the outcome of any event in existence by having control and mastery over time; you would totally rock the shit out of the space-time continuum. Despite all of the complex rubrics and conduct surrounding the details of time travel, the concept has never been too foreign or daunting for anybody to not fantasize about, and the fantasy of going back and doing things differently with pre-meditative insight on the past is too tempting to walk away from.

So now, imagine the opportunity of governing over it with force, Super Time Force; Capy’s insane gun-toting bullet buffet of an answer ironically modernizes old-school sensibilities with a time-travelin’ tribute that travels in time to bring us a game that…uses time trav…it would be best to stop before all of our heads start hurting.

QCF: Earth Defense Force 2025

andlot and D3 Publisher are back with Earth Defense Force 2025, the latest installment of the ever-popular, cult-classic series and direct sequel to 2007's Earth Defense Force 2017. Like its predecessor and its in-betweener installment Insect Armageddon (by Vicious Cycle in 2011), EDF 2025 features everything you want out of an EDF title—hordes of giant ants. Skyscraper-sized spiders that can make a grown man weep, or how about gargantuan Ravager robots that can lay waste to entire cities just by walking; the only thing that can keep these monstrosities from annihilating mankind? The Earth Defense Force, that’s who!

QCF: Lococycle

This Review was Frelanced by Rob Rich; you can find his other work here.

 weapons manufacturer without morals, highly advanced and extremely dangerous artificially intelligent war machines, A lightning strike, and Self-awareness—adventure.  No, I’m not talking about Short Circuit (although I totally could be), I’m talking about Twisted Pixel’s latest…Thing. It’s more like what Short Circuit would be if Johnny 5 were a female motorcycle with a tenuous grip on reality and an auto mechanic stuck to his leg. Also there are tourist traps! I know that barely makes any sense and makes me seem like I may have a substance abuse problem. That’s LocoCycle.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 81 - DoDonPachi Resurrection

ave is where its at for modern shooting games, with very little in the way of competition when it comes down to the intense brand of Bullet Hell that they deal. Mushihimesama Futari and Espgaluda II showed us that Bullet Hell doesn't have to be so mean... but DoDonPachi Dai Fukkatsu, released in the UK as DoDonPachi Resurrection, is out to remind us just what this subgenre is all about. If this game were in a back alley, it'd be cracking its knuckles and leering menacingly. How does this iconic Bullet Hell series treat us? Watch to find out in the third installment of the Boundless shooting block!
