Review: Dragon Quest Builders 2

A few years back, there was a little crafting game that caught me by surprise: Dragon Quest Builders. As I have mentioned before, I initially thought the game was a late-to-the-party cash grab on the crafting genre when demoing it, but it turned out to be much more than I had anticipated when diving into the full game.

Review: SolSeraph

I grew up back during the times of the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64, and it's an era that I have much nostalgia for...despite never owning either system. Before I turned 13 or so, my parents did not allow any video games in our home ("They aren't educational."), so I got most of my gaming memories from time spent at friend's houses. Read More

E3 2019 Hands-on: The Riftbreaker

If there's one thing that attending multiple E3 and PAX West expos has taught me, it's that the Polish indie games scene is thriving. Over the past few years, both expos have had a booth dedicated to titles coming from a country that isn't exactly the first place that comes to mind when one thinks about gaming (aside from CD Projekt Red, probably).

E3 2019 Hands-on: Sayonara Wild Hearts

"A Pop Album Video Game." That was the first description I had heard of Sayonara Wild Hearts back when the game's initial trailer debuted during the 2018 Game Awards. Of course, that's because that's the first line the trailer opens up with, and after going hands-on with the game, I can see where developers Simogo are coming from with that description. Read More

Review: Gato Roboto

What do you want to accomplish when you're creating a game? Do you want to make a splash, create something that moves a genre (or the industry) forward, and is full of innovation? Or would you rather take an existing formula, put a personal touch on it, and just do it really really well? Read More

Review: Fate/Extella Link

As we grow as human beings, our tastes change. It's an inevitable fact of life. Like, you suddenly start enjoying slow-paced ambient music despite being a metalhead through most of your youth, or you decide that mushrooms are in face the perfect pizza topping even though you hated them growing up.

Preview: Audica

Ever since the end of the Rock Band boom, developer Harmonix has become much more experimental in the games they produce. Aside from Rock Band 4, which they continue to support with updates and DLC, Harmonix has also jumped into board games, social games, and virtual reality. Read More

Review: Dead or Alive 6

The Dead or Alive franchise of fighting games is a series that markets itself on two things: fast and aggressive fighting and a splash of sex appeal. Apparently, pitting sexy well-endowed women and buff chiseled men against each other in brutal fisticuffs is a winning formula. Read More

Review: Metro Exodus

As the recent release of Kingdom Hearts 3 has proven, it can be challenging for newcomers to a series to jump into an on-going series without knowledge of past releases. KH3 may have taken this to a bit of an extreme, but I still experienced something similar when Metro Exodus fell into my hands. Read More

Review: Arcade Spirits

Back in the 80s, the arcade was the place to be! All the cool kids would bike on down to the local arcade after school to play the latest games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, fighting for high-score dominance while simultaneously stuffing their faces with greasy food, all lit up under a warm neon glow.
