Tired of Gods? So Are the Warriors in Gods Will Fall

The 21st century has revolutionized the way we play video games. Titles like Mass Effect and The Witcher III have shown us what is possible when you give players a role in the development of their stories, and what it means to have those choices come with consequences. But what if unlike Mass Effect, you

Review: Chronos: Before the Ashes

Chronos was an oddball title when first released: A third-person action game released on a VR console. It’s now been released in a more accessible format for everyone who may have missed it the first time around. Released December 1st, 2020 for PC via Steam by Gunfire Games, Chronos: Before the Ashes is a remake

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

Preview: Zelter

Here I am again! Coming to talk to you about another survival crafter. This time we have something a little different. Zelter from G1 Playground is by far the cutest zombie apocalypse I have ever participated in. It is Stardew Valley gone to Hell and, if I am being honest, is something I have wanted

Review: 9 Monkeys of Shaolin

I have some fond memories of playing the wide range of beat-’em-up games available in the arcades in the late 1980s and early 90s. Some of my favorites of the arcade era being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, X-Men and The Simpsons. These all boiled down to being incredibly simple; just walk from

Review: Cave Digger

To what extent do the controls make the game? Just because a game can be ported over to another system, does it mean it should? This is what I pondered while trying out Cave Digger, originally released for VR systems by Mekiwi and out now for standard PC play on Steam. Digging Yourself Deeper Gameplay

Preview: Fallen Angel

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Matrioshka Games’ Fallen Angel, a top-down adventure game that, for better or worse, is a mix of nostalgic elements from yesteryear combined with newer design philosophies. Right from the word go, it’s clear they’re going for a nostalgic aesthetic. The graphics are detailed pixel-art and, while

Preview: Big Farm Story

Big Farm Story is something I would… hesitate to call a game. Despite being released to the public as a playable early access game, it’s devoid of content and feels more like a prototype than anything. I’ve done previews of games that were still in Early Access before, and I’m no stranger to the idea

Review: Skully

There’s something to be said for expectations in a game. When I was approached to review Skully, I had been expecting something along the lines of your usual kid-friendly colorful platformer. Explore a variety of themed worlds, use abilities in different ways to traverse the levels, beat some baddies and do some light platforming. A

Review: Fairy Tail

Some games are really tough to review coming in from the outside. Case in point? Fairy Tail. Much like when I reviewed Gensou Skydrift, I am aware walking into this particular situation that this is material adapting a well-known and well-loved shonen manga. Fairy Tail is based quite directly on a manga that had an

Review: Death Stranding [PC]

Death Stranding, Kojima Productions’ first game, was originally released last November for the PlayStation 4. Now, the game has arrived for PC, allowing even more people to deliver packages as Norman Reedus and attempt to make sense of the bizarre story that Hideo Kojima has crafted. It also gives us a chance to do a

Review: Krystopia: Nova’s Journey

Point-and-click adventure games are one of those genres that faded away for a long while, then started to get a resurgence once two facts of video games became clear. The first is that it’s a lot easier for a small team to put together a point-and-click game than anything else beyond perhaps a basic platformer;

Bungie Delays Destiny 2: Beyond Light

Bungie has delayed the long-awaited expansion for Destiny 2 from its original September 22nd release date to November 10th.

Review: Summer in Mara

A little while ago I talked about my love for civilization and city builders. They are just a nice and simple way of unwinding after a day full of getting stomped on in whatever competitive shooter I decided to torment myself with. I feel the same about crafting games despite the genre getting just a

Everything From EA PLAY Live 2020

Today at EA Play Live 2020 there were a handful of new announcements as well as a sneak peak of what’s coming up in the future for next-gen consoles. Cross-play was a big focus on many of the titles shown, including confirmation that Star Wars: Squadrons will be cross-play and fully playable in VR. Additionally,

Persona 4 Golden is Now Available on PC

After weeks of rumors, the popular PlayStation Vita RPG finally makes its way to PC via Steam.

Review: Song of Horror

Horror really is one of the most popular genres in the indie scene, and it’s easy to see why. Fear is such a visceral reaction that sticks with a player years after they’ve stopped playing. It allows for telling tales a bit more complicated than the usual fight against evil. It relies on the unseen

Resident Evil Village Announced, Releasing Next Year

Today, during the PlayStation’s Future of Gaming digital event, Capcom announced the next entry in its Resident Evil series: Resident Evil Village. The game takes place a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and sees RE7 protagonist Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living their lives after the horrific events of

Review: Touhou Mechanical Scrollery

Touhou is perhaps my favorite series I’ve never played. It’s hard to have even a passing familiarity with the top-down shooter genre without hearing of the beatiful and deadly curtains of bullets the series is known for and the brutal difficulty it can reach. Part of the reason is the creator’s encouragement of fangames, resulting

Review: Neversong

Tackling the death of youthfulness and mental health through the lens of an eerie physiological narrative might seem like a tall task for any game. But it’s something that the teams at Serenity Forge and Atmos Games decided to tackle head-on with their new title, Neversong, launching on May 20th, 2020 on Steam. This side-scrolling
