My Nintendo News

Famed Platinum Games video game designer Hideki Kamiya recently participated in a Hamster Games Arcade Archives stream. Mr. Kamiya was asked about his busy schedule and the projects that he’s been working on including Bayonetta 3.

Phantomphobia – Truth

Bluebird’s Illusion is a fan-made visual novel released in 2004 by a Chinese group of fans called Neoland OceanX.

You also don’t know dick about the concepts of consent, abuse, and underage grooming.
