PAX West Hands-on: Demonschool

“This looks just like old school Persona!” That’s the reaction I heard ringing out from everyone who saw Demonschool on the PAX West show floor. And, to be honest, it’s hard to blame them. An inferred school setting, the isometric camera view present in many screenshots, battle screens with large tall sprites…it does look vaguely

Hands-On: Beyond the Wire

If there was a “dad” version of any genre of gaming, it would absolutely be the “historically accurate FPS” side of the whole spectrum. Oftentimes, they revolve around World War I and II, though the focus tends to lean towards pivotal battles or specific battlefields that try to emulate the feel of the era they’re

“Inspire and be inspired as you create, manage, and share the world’s greatest coaster parks with friends and content creators around the world.” As a player who was indeed inspired by games such as RollerCoaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon, I’ve been keeping a curious eye on the revival of the franchise by Frontier Developments.

Preview: Dirt 5 – Playground Mode

Despite the name, Dirt 5 is not actually the fifth installment in an epic JRPG series about the soil beneath our feet. I know, I was a bit disappointed too, but that was tempered by the fact I totally just made that up. No, it’s a game in which you race about with other cars

Hands-On: Darius Cozmic Collection Console

It was hard to deny how pervasive horizontal shoot-’em-ups were in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These tough-as-nails quarter munchers were in many an arcade at that time. Because of that high difficulty, it took a high skill set to even be able to make any progression in these games. Didn’t matter if it

Hands-On: Paradise Killer

When I read the broad summary of Paradise Killer, I wasn’t actually sure what to expect from it. Having sat down and played the game for an hour as part of the LudoNarraCon online experience… I still don’t. This is not an accident.

Hands-On: Stronghold: Warlords

It can be really hard to show off a strategy game in any sort of demo form, simply because strategy games are usually lengthy affairs that require elaborate tutorials just to get you up to speed. That’s not a bad thing, but it means that most of these games rather defy the ability to just

Hands-on with Gust’s Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is a massively popular shounen manga and anime series that I’ve never actually had any experience with. Not that I’ve purposefully avoided it, but more due to the fact that getting into it would be a massive time investment. The original manga ran for over a decade, with over 500 chapters making up
