Review: fault – StP – LIGHTKRAVTE

If you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you have probably noticed by this point that I periodically make a point of picking a game up that I am in no way qualified to review. This would be one of those times, because quite frankly? If there’s one genre I tend to actively dislike,

Review: Dolmen

While I tend to lean more towards fantasy over science fiction in video games, there has been the odd franchise or two with the latter type of setting that I’ve gotten into. The Metroid series comes to mind here, along with some sci-fi based shooters. Bearing in mind the relatively neutral perspective I have on

Review: Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong

Growing up in the 2000s has made me an expert on vampires. Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, you name it. I was glued to my TV trying to imagine what it would be like to live in a fang-filled world and I wrote down every detail to prepare myself. Needless to say, I never

Review: Neptunia x SENRAN KAGURA: Ninja Wars [PC]

If you can believe it, there was a time when one IP crossing over with another was considered a rare event. While I’m showing my age with this statement alone, the scarcity of such a thing just lent itself to the excitement of experiencing the crossover in general. In comparison to the dearth of options

Review: RiffTrax: The Game

When you’re creating a follow-up or sequel to a previous game, one of many things to consider is “how much should we change from our previous game?” Changing too much could risk alienating fans of the original, but could bring in new fans. Not changing enough might be seen as being lazy, but may make

Review: Trek to Yomi

In March, I had the chance to play the opening pair of chapters from Trek to Yomi, an action game developed by Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog with Devolver Digital taking up publishing duties. It acts as a love letter to Japanese cinema of the 1950s and 60s, an appreciation that clearly led to

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Patch 6.1 Newfound Adventure

After being one of our top 5 reviews of last year, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker had a lot to live up to with its first major patch following its release last December. With Patch 6.1 Newfound Adventure, FFXIV begins a new narrative instead of simply continuing where it left off, a first for the game

Review: Rogue Legacy 2

You know, sometimes it’s really best to stick to what works. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” they say. And that, I can proudly proclaim, is the case here with today’s game, Cellar Door Games’ Rogue Legacy 2. I don’t usually let on exactly how I feel about a game in the opening paragraph,

Review: Godlike Burger

I’m always a bit intrigued when developers combine two genres, especially when it involves adding combat to a genre not known for it. I’ve seen combat farming sims, combat typing tutors, combat visual novels, but this is probably the first time I’ve seen combat as the core part of a restaurant sim. In hindsight I’m

Review: Cat Cafe Manager

It takes very little effort – bordering on no effort – to get me interested in the prospect of a cat cafe. My two cats are two of the most important living things on the planet to me, and I love cats in general. They’re stupid furry pillows full of knives who vibrate and make

Review: Lost Judgment: The Kaito Files

I’ll be honest, I loved damn near everything about Lost Judgment. I’m pretty sure my review of the base game made that point glaringly obvious. With any game in the Yakuza franchise, it’s almost always packed to the gills with content. That reason alone usually deters the addition of new story content with each title,

Hardware Review: DXRacer Craft Series Gaming Chair

A good chair can be difficult to find. Speaking from my own personal experience, its easy to get caught up somewhere between comfort and necessity as far as pricing is concerned. If I can save some cash when it comes to a seat for my desk, why shouldn’t I? After all, it’s just where I

Review: Weird West

Few games have been as much of a roller coaster for me as Weird West. What first caught my attention was the developer, Wolfeye Studios, being made of former Arkane Studios developers. Weird West is also an immersive sim just like Arkane’s previous titles Dishonored and Prey, but this time departing from the usual first-person

Review: Forward: Escape the Fold

I’m quite a fan of roguelike/lite games, but I have to admit, they can often be quite the time sinks. If you’re the type that has found their style of gameplay interesting, but find that they’re often too time consuming or too elaborate, you might find today’s entry quite refreshing. Forward: Escape the Fold (Steam,

Review: Nightmare Reaper

Let me tell you, one of the best feelings of being a reviewer is when you get your first impressions of a title from screenshots, video, and early release info… and you’re wrong. See, the thing is (and this is a deep secret of being a game reviewer) that when you’ve played a lot of

Review: Rune Factory 5

There is nothing sadder than waiting almost a decade for a game, just to be disappointed by it. I still remember how excited I was when Rune Factory 5 was first announced. On the one hand, it was scary to think back on all the hours I poured into Rune Factory 4, but the anticipation

Review: Triangle Strategy

On January 28th, 1998, Square-Enix released Final Fantasy Tactics to a North American audience. People who played that game have spent twenty-four years looking for more. I open with that because I feel it’s very important to note my biases at the very least. When I first heard about Triangle Strategy my immediate dream was

Review: Young Souls

At the tail end of last September, I had the opportunity to check out the demo for Young Souls, a previously Stadia-exclusive beat ‘em up developed by 1P2P and published by The Arcade Crew. By and large, the general takeaway from my several hours with it was an exceedingly positive one, and I found myself

Review: Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

I can remember being incredibly excited for the release of the original Destiny back in 2014. After all, it was the next big game from the company behind Halo, the game series that was responsible for many teenage back pains as I frequently hauled my Xbox and my large, heavy television to friend’s houses in
