MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies Review

Neptunia U was an interesting, but logical choice for a spin-off. Since the main games could be played like an action game, it wasn’t hard to imagine what it would look like as an action game. Despite sounding good... Read More »

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Generation Review

When Neptunia originally released it was a train wreck. Bad level design, ran poorly, felt dated, didn’t do a good job bringing the concept to life and much more. Since then Neptunia MK 2 brought the concept to life... Read More »
