Etrian Odyssey Nexus Review

The Etrian Odyssey series comes to its 3DS conclusion with the release of Nexus. Blending countless series callbacks with the best dungeon-crawling RPG experience around makes for a pretty fun game.

NieR: Automata Review

It’s been two years since NieR: Automata’s original release but it has come back into a bit of prominence with the release of the Game of the YoRHa Edition bundle. Though the bundle doesn’t add anything itself, it’s a good opportunity to give the game another look.

Mary Skelter: Nightmares Review

Let us enter a wacky world with wayward women from wild and weird fairy tales. These women then have blood squirted onto them for a calming effect. Of all the things that could have happened, that one probably wasn’t the first pick.

God Eater 3 Review

Bandai Namco’s God Eater series returns with a new entry. The Aragami-hunting exploits of Fenrir are over, and it’s time to see if Gleipnir proves as strong.

Pillars of Eternity Review

Obsidian had a Kickstarter campaign to produce a type of RPG not seen much in recent years, and the fundraising was successful. Pillars of Eternity was the result, and a new review perspective is now available for it.

Death end re;Quest Review

There’s plenty of torture and suffering to go around in Compile Heart’s latest visual novel/RPG hybrid, outside of some missteps with the combat mechanics. Prepare to be taken for a ride and face the re;Aper.

Heroes Trials Review

A sibling pair needs to pass some trials in order to become heroes. This will happen by running around and killing some things, but will a good time be had doing so?

Kingdom Hearts III Review

After many years and a multitude of side entries and remasters, Kingdom Hearts III is finally here. There are a lot of threads to tie up, but still plenty of time to go gallivanting around Disney worlds.

My Time at Portia Review

Pathea Games’ My Time at Portia is the newest addition to the life-sim subgenre, with a focus on building. As with many construction projects, RPGamers may find it taking up more time than expected.

YIIK: A Postmodern RPG

YIIK: A Postmodern RPG Review

The tireless historians at Ackk Studios have turned their lens of inquiry on the late ’90s in their newest period drama. YIIK: A Postmodern RPG lets everyone know once and for all what those surreal, alienated years were like for a recent college grad, his friends, and a magical talking panda.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima Review

If the mechanics of this game are extrapolated into the real world, adults giving children piggyback rides with a pet on the child’s head make a powerful team. No one appears to have attempted this challenge, which is disappointing.

Yo-kai Watch 3 Review

Yo-kai Watch 3 travels across the globe, allowing players to meet a whole new set of yo-kai. The game first makes a stopover in Europe, giving RPGamer a chance to check it out ahead of its North American arrival date in February.
