Asha in Monster World is one of the two Wonder Boy games I have not played and when my brother saw it on the Playstation Store it was decided right then that we had to buy it but I also thought that it would be a good idea to do a blind run of this game for Playing Games with Snat and as of the publishing of this review I have recorded everything but have yet to publish it.
Furthermore, as a disclaimer for this review, I do have very high expectations of the game due to the original Wonder Boy series and their remakes and Monster Boy so while I may sound harsh it may not be bad.
So the story behind Wonder Boy tends to be simple and Asha in Monster World is no different. The young green-haired girl is called Asha and comes across as a nomad who is sensitive to the presence of spirits and it is these spirits that ask her to save them and during this time we set out to become a warrior and save them … although there seems something weird about the Queen.
Role-Playing Games, Real-Time Strategy and city-building games will always have a special place in my heart when it comes to gaming and one company that comes into mind is Paradox Gaming and all I have to say is this – how the heck did I miss this one?
You may have noticed that over the last few months I have not been releasing Playing Games with Snat and there are a couple of reasons why I am going to be relaunching the series on a different channel but one of the reasons of late is I do not enjoy gaming as much as I used too but Phasmophobia … is interesting.
Phasmophobia explains itself pretty much in its name but the idea of the game is to go ghost hunting and collect evidence to figure out the type of ghost and then do a few objectives and get out there all without being murdered by the ghost.
TL;DR: It is a fun game as long as you do not expect it to be like your typical Fallout game and that you do not rush right to the end. Update: Everything I said here still applies however this game, at least to me, now only works well as a stand-alone one time play with no replayability or sight of future content. Buy on Amazon.

If there is one game series I have had a 180-degree turn on with my opinion is the Fallout series. series but before I get onto my review there are a few things I have to say about Fallout itself as this ultimately changes my review and these opinions about Fallout are how I see it – not always how others see it.
The first is Fallout is an RPG game which allows you to decide what your character does with each interaction. Secondly, the same RPG setting allows you to design your character in such a way that for one gameplay you could rely purely on speech, another you can be a person that uses brute force, another where you just sneak and so on. Thirdly what you do in the game has an overall effect on how NPCs and the world react towards you. Continue reading →
The review has been updated based on the United Kingdom’s release of Final Fantasy XIII-2. I am sure anyone that has a brain and who reads Tweaked for your Pleasure would have worked out I would end up doing a Final Fantasy XIII-2 review and with the power of importing, here is the review. The game is based after the events of what happened in Final Fantasy XIII so if you have not completed that, complete it first as it will make sense.
Game play wise, it does play much like Final Fantasy XIII but and I will repeat this once, does not feel the same and unlike Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years etc this game actually feels like it is a game on its own and can stand against the game before it. Continue reading →
Although I did not originally plan to write a review about Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection, I have been flooded with emails asking what I think about it, I decided it is worth posting here and I am going to sum it up in a few words and then do an actual review below in case you are in a hurry.
If you have the originals, this is not worth getting unless you fancy Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on the Playstation 3.
And now the review and like any other review, I am going to review the game as if there is no original to compare it too so you get to know about the game itself rather than what “has been improved”. Continue reading →
