Review: Granblue Fantasy: Versus

It’s no secret that mobile games are a massive industry. It seems like we can’t go a day without some news story talking about how Fate Grand Order or Fire Emblem Heroes has broken some new user count or profit record. Putting aside the money-making-machine aspect of many of them, just the fact that they’re

Review: Rune Factory 4 Special

I’ll always have fond memories of the original Harvest Moon and Harvest Moon 64. The peaceful routine of watering my crops each day, planning out my investments in advance, talking to my fellow townspeople to learn the ins and outs of their personalities and schedules…it scratched an itch that few other games really do.

Review: Daemon X Machina

Every so often, you find a game that seems so perfectly targeted to your particular flavors of fascination and enjoyment that it seems like it should, nay, must have been made specifically for you. That is precisely the case for Daemon X Machina, which feels somehow like thirteen-year-old me was given a production role in

Review: Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls

I've long been a fan of first person dungeon crawlers like Legend of Grimrock, Etrian Oddyssey, and Might and Magic. I'd also heard of the Wizardry series, but I'd never had a chance to play one of them before, so I was excited to give this game a shot.

Review: Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient

Hospital From Hell XSEED’s at it again, bringing me more stuff to write about. And what’s this you say? It’s Halloween? That’s great then, because we’ve got a horror game on the docket today in Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient. Now I will preface this by saying I’m not personally familiar with the series, but

Review: Corpse Party: Blood Drive

It’s Halloween, and that means spooks, scares, blood, and gore! We’re sitting down with the latest entry in the Corpse Party series, Corpse Party: Blood Drive, which released earlier this month for PC, a vastly more accessible state than its earlier PS Vita release. Corpse Party: Blood Drive, developed by Team GrisGris and published by

Review: Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash

The "fan disc" is a relatively common thing when it comes to visual novels. After pouring hours of life into reading through a story, some people will surely come to care for the characters therein and want to spend more time with them.

E3 2018 Interview With Tak Fujii

We can always count on XSeed to be showing off at least one unusually interesting game at the E3 booth, and at this year’s show, I would definitely give that prize to Gal Metal. It’s a game about defending the Earth from aliens with the power of metal, played by swinging around the Switch’s Joycon

E3 2018 Hands-on: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

At last year’s E3, we had the chance to go hands-on with an early build of an upcoming game being published by XSeed, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. Despite the short and sometimes obviously beta demo, it became one of my favorites from the 2017 show.

Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind – Coming West?

Sometimes, an incredibly popular anime will garner an incredibly popular game and the title that sings that tune this season appears to be Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind. At first glance, it isn’t really a high budget game – combat is mainly a game of quick time events and the graphics are

Back in September, Xseed Games announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC (Second Chapter) will be released in the West in 2014 on PSN and Steam. The teaser trailer for the announcement also mentioned that the original Trails in the Sky would receive a re-release on Steam in Winter 2013. Unfortunately, it
