Review: Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion

Way back in the late 90s, I had many a fond memory of playing Turok 1 and 2 on my N64. Naturally when they were remastered I had to pick them up, but I never did play Turok 3. Now it’s finally getting a remaster of it’s own, and it was finally time to see what I had been missing all these years.

Review: Gordian Quest

There was a time – and I remember it quite well – when not every single type of game got stapled to an RPG. I don’t even feel like it was all that long ago. It’s not as if no one loved RPGs or anything, but it was a reality that it was something of

Review: Silent Hope

I’ve been a fan of Marvelous’ work for a while, starting with the old Harvest Moon games way back when and more recently with the Rune Factory series. So of course I was delighted to see some classic monsters return in the trailer, and I knew I had to check this out. While it seemed to lean away from the life sim elements of those other series and into pure action this time around, adding action had made Rune Factory better for me than Harvest Moon, so I shouldn’t have been surprised that sooner or later they would decided to go all in.

Review: Whateverland

I have to admit that I’m not the kind of person who usually steps out of their preferred video game genre. Despite being a game reviewer I feel like the type of titles I sink my time into tend to be pretty consistent. However, from time to time I do dabble in games I normally

Review: The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood

Back in April I’d covered a preview of The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood, and found myself immediately fascinated by it. Coming from an established publisher and developer and dealing with occult matters in a fleshed out fantasy world, it was just a taste of something that promised to be far greater. So how could I turn down checking out the finished deal?

Review: Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons

One of the more consistent dilemmas that surface in whatever long-running property you feverishly consume is the problem of staving off becoming stale. For every book series that has tens of entries from the likes of James Patterson or Janet Evanovich, for every tired comparison to the MCU and its plethora of shows and movies,

Preview: Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons

I might not speak for everyone when I say this, but some would agree that the recent visibility of the beat-’em-up genre bodes well for fans of local multiplayer games. It’s a genre that I’ve found myself covering a lot in those same days, and I can’t say that I’m not enjoying its time in

Review: Bleak Sword DX

Earlier this year I was pleased to preview Bleak Sword DX. Now it’s out, I finally got a chance to sit down with the finished game. With a striking aesthetic and dark fantasy vibe, it left a strong impression back then, and I was super eager to see where it went from there. Let’s see

Review: Harmony: The Fall of Reverie

I am usually thrilled when I write a preview and get to review the full version of a game soon after. Especially when it’s a title I’m excited about. The things I hope to see and express disappointment with during my initial playthrough are things I sharply look for the second time around, and this

Review: The Tartarus Key

It takes astonishingly little to endear me to an art style inspired by those found in titles released for the original PlayStation. Games for the console sported a very singular look, and to this day can provide a unique atmosphere in the gaming space that belies their age. Quite a few modern games have been

Launch Preview: Warframe: The Duviri Paradox

10 Years of the Tenno The game Warframe has a rags-to-riches story. After Dark Sector was released, developer Digital Extremes wanted to use the ideas that publishers had removed from Dark Sector and craft a game that was truly theirs. Unfortunately, at the time, science fiction wasn’t considered trendy, so after every publisher turned them

Review: Afterimage

When the term “Metroidvania” gets thrown around, the expectation of a quality title usually follows. It doesn’t matter if it’s an entry from its namesake or a well-loved and amazingly made entry from an indie developer. You really have to put your best foot forward. The amount of lofty expectations for this genre is a

Review: Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly

The Coffee Talk series features two things I’m fond of: visual novel elements and coffee! It’s interesting because while the premise seems rather simple, I don’t actually come across many games that explore these types of random mixes often, or well, for that matter.

Mini-Review: Infernax Deux or Die

It’s not all that often that I get the opportunity to revisit a beloved review title after it’s release, but when The Arcade Crew reached out for word on the latest major update for Infernax, of course I had to check it out for myself. So, for those of you who haven’t heard of Infernax

Review: Curse of the Sea Rats

To the surprise of nobody, I was hooked from the moment I saw the trailer for Curse of the Sea Rats. I mean, an action platformer where you play as a cast of rats that look straight out of a 90s Disney movie with a fantastical ensemble of foes, what’s not to love? Well, as

Review: Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania

It’s always fun to go through and revisit games in your library. You probably have more than a few you remember fondly and would love an excuse to play again. Today, for many of you, this may be the case. We’re talking about Dead Cells, a roguelite game by indie studio Motion Twin with metroidvania

Review: Redemption Reapers

Sometimes, it can be hard to decide how to approach a review, oneself having multiple perspectives on the subject of said review. A game might play well, but is that enough to call it good? It is this sort of internal struggle I find myself dealing with in today’s title, Redemption Reapers, released on February

Review: Grim Guardians: Demon Purge

When I first saw the trailer for Grim Guardians: Demon Purge, a few inspirations immediately stuck out in my mind. A castle of demons full of diverse architecture, a variety of abilities just as useful for exploration as they are for combat, an aesthetic reminiscent of Symphony of the Night and Aria of Sorrow, plus
