Cover Game Articles

428: Shibuya Scramble – Introduction and History - Every so often a game comes along that really makes you sit up and pay attention. Sometimes it’s because it features a beautiful refinement or evolution of some established mechanics. Sometimes it’s because it really pushes graphical technology forwards. Sometimes it has famous names attached to it. And sometimes it’s 428: Shibuya Scramble, a title so far … Continue reading 428: Shibuya Scramble – Introduction and History
428: Shibuya Scramble – The Mechanics of Storytelling - When we’re talking about conventional games — particularly today’s games — it’s important to consider them from a wide variety of perspectives.

428: Shibuya Scramble – A Question of Identity - Well, it’s time to unravel some of the mysteries at the core of 428: Shibuya Scramble. And there are plenty of them! Not only that, but “beating” the game isn’t the end, either; once you’ve seen the “normal” or “true” endings, there are other, more deviously hidden scenarios to track down… but that’s a tale … Continue reading 428: Shibuya Scramble – A Question of Identity

Waifu Wednesday: Aya Kamiki - We’ve had celebrities putting in appearances in video games for a good while now, mostly as voice actors, but it’s quite rare to see a performer appear in a game as themselves. Japanese singer, actress and model Aya Kamiki evidently saw a good opportunity back in 2008, though, and played a part in Spike Chunsoft’s … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Aya Kamiki
