Once within a city dreary, soot-filled, steam-bound, and quite weary, did three trudge the cobblestones. What fate of card shall bring them toward the truth of mystery and thus reward, or leave them scattered amidst the bones?

Deep Looks act as review substitutes for games that do not meet our criteria for being fully-scored reviews (such as being DLC or the game not being completed for whatever reason).
Final Fantasy XVI received the first of two DLC packs earlier this month. Echoes of the Fallen may not provide any substantial answers to lingering story questions, but provides an enjoyable dungeon romp.
Little Goody Two Shoes is a fascinating combination of dark fairy tale horror with time management and dating sim elements. Its excellent style and creeping dread is somewhat tempered by its barriers to progress, however.
Despite the game’s troubled launch, CD Projekt RED has admirably kept faith with Cyberpunk 2077. That faith bears fine fruit with the release of its Update 2.0 and Phantom Liberty expansion.
WrestleQuest’s blend of turn-based RPG, toy box world, and professional wrestling gives it cause to attract interest. Unfortunately, its execution doesn’t really live up to the hype.
With the 3DS eShop closed, The Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection makes the original three Etrian Odyssey games easily accessible again for RPGamers. Thank goodness, as they’re excellent HD recreations of some great dungeon crawlers.
Tactical Adventures gives RPGamers a large reason to jump back into Solasta. The Palace of Ice is well worth its price, adding a brand new story campaign and more.
Wartales promises an epic adventure without magic or other mystical monsters. JCServant takes a deep look to see if it can go the distance.
Monolith Soft released its promised story DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Future Redeemed provides another excellently-executed experience that places a final cap on the trilogy.

An isometric action RPG about two characters caught between the conflict between two rival gangs is the debut game from FUTU Studio. A few interesting ideas are letdown by the lackluster execution.
Dying Light 2: Bloody Ties DLC is Techland’s chance to appeal to new and returning players. Has Techland learned from its past glitch-filled mistakes, or does this appeal land with a resounding thud?
Airoheart is the latest title to take advantage of the top-down action adventure revival. However, a lack of polish and anything new limit its likely audience.
Mordred comes back to finish what he started in King Arthur: Knight’s Tale. We take a deep look to see what the knights of the round are up to.
The Mary Skelter trilogy is complete with the release of Mary Skelter Finale, which comes with a ready way for newcomers to get caught up on events. However, with dense systems and unbalanced pacing, it’s definitely one for the fans.
Some games strive to create an open, accessible experience for all to enjoy. Others just want to take you to chocolate-coated moonscapes and laser-powered volcanos, where ninjas do battle with abominable snowmen.
Trapped inside a magic book, the only way out is to deck build. Abrakam Entertainment and Richard Garfield construct a clever roguelike that pushes against genre conventions in some interesting ways.
The ambitious debut project for Midgar Studio has fully released on PC. Unfortunately, many of Edge of Eternity’s problems can be pointed towards that ambition.
Four Quarters’ nifty rogue-lite RPG is a fascinating little title with a lot hiding under the surface. Even though it doesn’t all quite come together, it’s an interesting game well worth checking out.
Fallen Legion Revenants offers another batch of interesting ideas. Unfortunately, the implementation of those ideas results in a largely frustrating experience.
