Review: Date Night Bowling

I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting genre mashups. It’s a great way to add new flavor to a stale scene, to challenge genre norms. So naturally I was interested in Date Night Bowling. I do enjoy bowling IRL and while it rarely comes across well in video games, the change in theme

Review: Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster

Media preservation is a funny thing. Films, television and music have obviously been around a lot longer than video games have. Because of that, there’s a bit more reverence and concern for preserving the good and bad of everything for future generations to experience. Shift that focus to video games and that gets a little

Review: Battlefield 2042

Oh, hey guys. It’s me, Grant, I’m back from the year 2042. You thought 2020 wasn’t so hot? Looks like we’re in for another world war in 20 years or so. At least according to EA and DICE’s Battlefield 2042. So if you can’t wait 20 years, I’m here with the deets on how things

Hardware Review: DXRacer Air Series Mesh Gaming Chair

Here’s the thing about any kind of gaming chair – it’s simultaneously one of the least important and most important decisions that you’re going to make when it comes to your personal setup. On the one hand, well, it’s a chair. It’s a place to sit. It’s not a game, it doesn’t make your PC

Review: Arcadia Fallen

One of the perks of being a game reviewer is learning about upcoming games that may be easy to miss. Sometimes, these hidden gems can provide more entertainment than big named titles, and when that happens it’s ALWAYS the best feeling. I recently had this experience with Arcadia Fallen, a modern fantasy visual novel developed

Review: Blue Reflection: Second Light

A little over four years ago, we took a look at Blue Reflection, a new IP from Gust (of Atelier fame) and Koei Tecmo. A JRPG set in the magical girl genre, it was something that seemed to have a lot of promise when I first booted it up. Unfortunately, I came away from it…less

Preview: Weird West

If you’ve been a semi-casual Gamer Escape reader this past summer (which you should be, duh), you’ve probably come across our past coverage of Weird West, a top-down cel-shaded action RPG developed by some of the core staff behind Arkane Studios and games such as Dishonored. Published by Devolver Digital, it drew me in since

Preview: Shadow Tactics – Aiko’s Choice

I always have an interest in rare genres, things new or resurrected. It’s for this reason that I leapt at the chance to preview Shadow Tactics: Aiko’s Choice, despite not being familiar with the original Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. A strategy stealth game, it combines isometric control of a squad of characters with

Review: Panorama Cotton

The Cotton games are a series of shoot ’em ups (or cute ’em ups, if you prefer) that haven’t seen much popularity outside of their native Japan. Up until this year, Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, the franchise’s first entry, was the only one to receive a North American release on the TurboGrafx-CD in 1993, and

Review: Unsighted

I’m going to die. I don’t care about that. I care about what it means. It happens. I consider myself decent at video games, and I rarely get particularly angry with games. It’s part of my job. Sure, it might be a bit annoying to get stunlocked and killed, but there’s no reason to get

Review: Gleylancer

Ever since finally getting my hands on a PC Engine Duo (or, as it was known in the US, the TurboDuo), I’ve been on a bit of a shmup kick. The system is known for its absolute glut of space shooters, after all, so why not dive in and see what it actually had to
