Review: Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Despite what it may seem like, I am actually not an enormous Fire Emblem fan. I am, however, an absolutely unreserved massive fan of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. This isn’t to say that I traditionally have disliked Nintendo’s long-running second-party series of strategy RPGs, just that they have rarely risen above “well, that was fun

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

Preview: Rogue Command

So, confession time. I am terrible at real-time strategy games. I know this intellectually, but I also know that every time it comes up I’m drawn to them like a moth to a flame. I can’t help it. Ever since I played Warcraft II I have a deep-seated need for these games to be shot

Preview: Shadow Tactics – Aiko’s Choice

Dice Legacy is a strange game. This is not inherently a bad thing. I’m generally of the mind that strange but distinctive games have a decided edge in the now-crowded indie game space, and I’m inherently very fond of any game that’s trying to do something very different. And a roguelike city-builder strategy game is

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

Review: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics

Reboots of classic stories, franchises, and characters have been popping up everywhere in recent years. I was beyond excited when one of my favorite films, The Dark Crystal, was being adapted into a Netflix series. Much like others who were raised on Labyrinth, Gremlins, and The Neverending Story, it’s exciting to see a new adaptation
