The Blade’s Edge – June 2016 Update

It’s crazy. The days and weeks have flown by. Between a short-notice vacation to Vancouver (pictures to follow soon), an amazing Selubration, a plethora of game releases, and the anime season continuing strong… I’ve just barely managed to keep afloat among all of the awesomeness that happened this past month.

We finished the last of the Winter 2016 anime reviews with Myriad Colours Phantom World and played 4 separate games, including both Uncharted 4 and Ratchet and Clank. We are also continuing the Shadow’s Sixty, and are currently halfway through the countdown of the best games I’ve ever played. Wanting to see whether your favourite has made the cut yet? Check out the list as it continues to develop.
