Review: Lost Judgment

I think it’s pretty well known by now that SEGA is none too shy about how much they’re leaning into all aspects of the Yakuza franchise. Which is great, because lately the main franchise and now the Judgment side of things were supposed to have split off into two separate playstyles. Last year’s Yakuza: Like

Review: Foreclosed

Cyberpunk is one of the most interesting subgenres of science fiction. It’s a demonstrably solid framework for writing flawed and morally gray characters, beaten down by a world brought to the edge of collapse by the whims of puppeteering corporations and capitalism run amok. Often, it explores the question mark of human consciousness, individuality, and

Review: Fuga: Melodies of Steel

Never before have I felt both so excited and so afraid to review a title before. The latest in the Little Tail Bronx series of loosely connected games, I’ve been a fan of the series for some time now. However, I also knew the story would absolutely break my heart. It’s a tale of vengeance,

Review: Chivalry II

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had a thing for medieval stuff. Knights, castles, siege weapons, swords, bows, everything really. I also really dug the more fantasy type stuff like wizards and elves and such. I have some real pieces of armor, swords and stuff in my personal space, so that should validate

Review: Oddworld: Soulstorm

Having grown up during the halcyon days of the original PlayStation yet totally separate from the hype that surrounded the library it sported was kind of weird. I had my eyes set on a Saturn being the rabid SEGA fan that I was in the ’90s, though that never came to pass until well after

Review: Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

When the original Atelier Ryza launched in the west a little over a year ago, it brought a few changes to the well-established series beloved by fans. With a more action-focused battle system, simplified alchemy systems, a stronger focus on plot, and a touch more fanservice than usual, Ryza went on to be one of

Review: Haven

When a game you create suddenly strikes it big and gains a sizeable following, what do you do next? Do you continue to produce content for it? Do you create a direct sequel, or another game in the same style? Or do you go in a completely different direction and make something else entirely?

Preview: Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

Despite being newer to the series, I feel confident in saying that the Atelier games are a good representation of what modern JRPGs have become. As a person who grew up playing the classic entries of this genre, though, I’m not yet sure how I feel about the changes of modern entries. However, it was

Hardware Review: Astro A20 Gen 2 Headset

If there’s one piece of gaming kit that I’m willing to drop stacks of cash on, it’s a quality headset. I’m no audiophile, but sound quality in games and music is still incredibly important to me…perhaps due to my background in music and radio.
