They say the place where monsters roam can be terrifying. They say that fear can be our own worst enemy. They even say that once you enter, there may never be a return to the reality of which you knew. All the courage that you may have will not even match the violence that this place once knew.

Stealth, Japan, Shinobi. Each has its own special meaning and each has significance with a certain style. When I think about them, I think of them as art. The art of the style of stealth, the art of Japan is known for, and the art of the dedication of a Shinobi.

I have seen the beast of metal looking to feed in these sewers. Just when I thought I was all alone,… Read more.

My life changed as soon as I heard those words from her. The government decided to take what they thought was theirs and tried to keep her locked up. To use her as an experiment and try to hurt her.

How I had to use the shadows as cover so I...we would not be seen. I had… Read more.

In Virtual Reality it is important to be immersed in the world you are in. Not only visually, but the sound also is a big part of it.

*Please keep this in mind, this is a Japan-only game so you will need to create a Japenese PSN account to even get access. So with a Japan-only game, there might be a slight disadvantage if you cannot read Japanese.

But if there is an option I missed that allows showing how to change the language within the game itself, I will… Read more.
