CIB Sunday #14 – ‘White Day: A Labyrinth Named School’

'White Day: A Labyrinth Named School,' for Android, iOS, PC, and PlayStation 4, is actually a remake of the original 'White Day' video game from 2001. Although I didn't have a chance to play the original, I happened to see the remake available on Amazon for pre-order one day. I was immediately intrigued; I was so drawn in by the game's description and screenshots. Plus, we don't have a ton of Asian horror video games being localized for overseas audiences, so it's always great to see a new one. So, I just had to pre-order the game, and I'm so glad I did!

'Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked' is actually a port of the 'Devil Survivor' DS game from 2009. The original was widely considered to be a great RPG video game, and the port version provides several enhancements upon it. Some of these improvements include new voice-acting and a brand new eighth chapter to explore. The game was well-received enough to warrant a 3DS port with new features, so you may be wondering, what exactly makes 'Devil Survivor' so good? Well, there are a few key reasons.

CIB Sunday #10 – ‘Silent Hill: Homecoming’

My first foray with 'Silent Hill' was through its sixth game, 'Silent Hill: Homecoming.' Even though I'd heard a lot about the series, I didn't really know what to expect from 'Homecoming.' It ended up being a terrifying, engrossing, and enjoyable experience for me. It gets a bad rap from some fans, but I'm glad 'Homecoming' was my introduction to the series.
