CIB Sunday #15 – ‘Corpse Party: Back to School Edition’

'Corpse Party' is a series I'd heard about for a long time, being a big fan of horror video games. However, the games were only available on Steam and PS Vita for a long time, and I didn't have access to either back then. A few years ago, I was browsing 3DS video games on Amazon, when I saw that a remake of the original 'Corpse Party' was available for pre-order. I ended up being gifted the game that same year for Christmas, and of course, started playing it right away. Did it live up to all the hype, though? I certainly think so. There are several key reasons why the game is so good, a few of which I'll be going over in this post. Read on to find out more!

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!

CIB Sunday #13 – ‘Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon’

I'm a huge fan of the original 'Luigi's Mansion' game for GameCube. It's one of my all time favorites on any game system, and I truly never tire of playing it. I enjoyed the 3DS port of it immensely as well. This title was a significant part of my childhood; I played it for hours and hours, even coming back to replay the entire game a few different times. So, I was super excited for 'Dark Moon' to come out! But, did the game hold up to my high expectations?

CIB Sunday #12 – ‘Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked’

'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.
