Returning to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

For the past year or so, I’ve carried a bit of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle guilt. When it first came out, I was enamored by its measured approach to anime-style tag-team combat.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Review

I don’t think we’re in Hyrule anymore.

Washed ashore after his ship is struck by lightning, Link finds himself stranded on the mysterious Koholint Island.
