Adventure Corner: World End Syndrome

RPGamer’s Adventure Corner returns for a detailed look at visual novel World End Syndrome. The recently-released title from TOYBOX and Arc System Works sends players to the rural town of Mihate, where they are thrust into a mystery involving the themes of life and death.

Cris Tales E3 Impression

Cris Tales is billed as a love-letter to classic JRPGs, but makes its own distinct mark in several ways. Pascal Tekaia was able to check out how Crisbell’s time manipulation powers help in both questing and combat.

Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 Impression 2

Pascal Tekaia offers a second impression on Final Fantasy VII Remake’s E3 demo. Though the previous reveals for the game have made him nervous, the remake’s gameplay has served to alleviate at least some of his concerns.

Pokémon Sword and Shield E3 Impression

Pokémon Sword and Shield were present at this year’s E3 ahead of their worldwide release this November. As a newcomer to the series, Pascal Tekaia isn’t able to comment on the more nuanced changes in the games, but found out why so many are looking forward to them.

The Outer Worlds E3 Impression

The Outer Worlds received a release date at this year’s E3, but there was also a demo of the game to check out. Pascal Tekaia reported back on his brief visit to the planet Monarch.

Judgment E3 Impression

With Judgment’s release less than two weeks away, it was only natural that Sega would have a playable demo in its booth. Pascal Tekaia managed to spend some time with it, starting an investigation before naturally getting sidetracked with some of Kamurocho’s many distractions.

Borderlands 3 E3 Impression

Borderlands 3 is set to offer loads more looter-shooter action this September. Pascal Tekaia was able to check out the game’s E3 demo and reported that fans are not likely to be disppointed.

Cyberpunk 2077 E3 Impression

Cyberpunk 2077 was always going to be one of the big titles of E3, a status very much helped by Keanu Reeves’ appearance at the show. Pascal Tekaia was able to check out a demo of the game and reported back on his experience.

Project Witchstone E3 Impression

RPGamer’s Charalampos Papadimitriou was able to pay a visit to the IndieCade booth at this year’s E3, where he was drawn to Spearhead Games’ Project Witchstone. He reports back on the early development demo he was able to check out for the upcoming sandbox RPG.

Iron Danger E3 Impression

During the first offical day of E3, Pascal Tekaia was able to check out Action Squad Studios’ Iron Danger. The game looks to heavily play up its tactical time-management elements.

Iratus: Lord of the Dead E3 Impression

Iratus: Lord of the Dead marks Pascal’s kickoff to this year’s E3, and it starts it with a bang. Being the villain comes with some visual luster and deceptively deep tactical gameplay in this roguelike dungeon-crawler.

Swag and Sorcery Deep Look

Swag and Sorcery bills itself as an idle RPG and city-building game. While there is truth in that advertised blending of genres, the ingredients offered don’t combine into a palatable recipe for success.

Outward Impression

In Outward, the player is not some hero who is destined to save the world, but an ordinary person who needs to etch out a living in this harsh land. Phil Willis helps us determine if this is a life worth living, or better left behind.
