Review: Crown Wars: The Black Prince

Quick! Name a game that falls under the genre of “Tactical RPG.” While there are certainly quite a few out there, I’d be willing to bet that you probably named either the Fire Emblem franchise or one of the Final Fantasy Tactics games. If you’re more into the genre than most, you might have also

Review: Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling

What is it that the kids say these days when the content they like is getting released on a regular basis? Ah yes, we are eating good. This is definitely the case for otome fans. Many titles have released this year, and among them is the sequel to Idea Factory’s popular Cupid Parasite.

Review: Read Only Memories: Neurodiver

Don’t look now, but it’s been quite a while since 2015’s 2064: Read Only Memories introduced us to the cyberpunk world of Neo San Francisco. While we covered the definitive Integral release a few years after its initial release, I don’t think anyone was expecting to have to wait for a proper follow-up for this

Review: Dread Delusion

When it comes to writing reviews, a concept that consistently crops up is the notion of a game being greater than the sum of its parts. For me, this particular abstraction does a lot of heavy lifting to establish that while a given title may have some lackluster execution in certain areas, the experience of

Review: Qualia ~The Path of Promise~ [Switch]

All right, kiddos, let’s establish something that’s not going to come as a surprise for much of anyone here: I like robots. I think there is loads and loads of storytelling potential for working with robots, and I especially like things that ask big philosophical questions about robotics as a concept. I also like when

Review: Still Joking

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love games that make me think. Especially when it pertains to things I normally wouldn’t even consider. For example, does the reflection of me in the mirror have a life outside of being my reflection? Is there a whole other world I don’t know about?

Preview: Abiotic Factor

By now PC gamers are used to playing something in early access, and some balk at the prospect since it’s not a finished project when it launches in that status. Still, it’s a chance to experience new concepts and ideas that the developers might be tinkering with during development. Well, not all of them are

Review: Wrath: Aeon of Ruin

Having covered the genre in the past, it should come as no surprise that I quite enjoy the classic style of shooters of the early days of 3D gaming, both online and single player. The early classics like the Doom, Quake, and Unreal franchises all have a magic to them that I personally think new

Review: Phantom Fury

You know what I love? A convoluted backstory of development. And boy howdy, does Phantom Fury deliver on that front. Back in 2016, a game was released titled Bombshell, which had originally been a Duke Nukem game but was retooled to be about Shelley “Bombshell” Harrison who had originally been a supporting character in the

Review: ArcRunner

Am I allowed to be… like… kind of tired of roguelikes at this point? Don’t get me wrong, that is a rhetorical question; I’m allowed to be tired of anything that I am authentically tired of and I don’t really need to ask permission. But it feels like people have reached a point with roguelikes
