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.

Book of Demons Review

Thing Trunk’s planned seven-part Return 2 Games anthology kicks off with an ode to Blizzard’s Diablo. Does Book of Demons provide a strong first chapter to build upon, or does its Paperverse crumple up under pressure?

Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics Review

Pull the pin and count to three! Mixing tactical historical warfare with gothic horrors should make for an explosive concoction. But with repetitive gameplay cycles and a less-is-more approach to its IP, this pen-and-paper adaptation is a bit of a dud.

Muramasa Rebirth Review

In a now-bygone era of Japanese history, problems were routinely solved with violence and everyone was literally two-dimensional. That may not sound like a ringing endorsement, but it’s a time worth experiencing.

Sacred Earth – Promise Review

It might sound like fun to be someone with dragon blood, seeking nothing more than a great time. This is a game that shows such a lifestyle doesn’t come without some personal baggage.

Darksiders III Review

It seemed like the bell had already tolled for the Darksiders franchise. Risen from the grave, the third entry in the story of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse chronicles Fury’s day out on the town during the apocalypse.

CrossCode Review

CrossCode may not be the most original game on the market in its quest to emulate SNES classics. However, it innovates in ways that feel natural.

Metal Max Xeno Review

For far too long, western audiences have been left without the opportunity to battle a brontosaur merged with a battleship. Unfortunately, some creepy characters and a lack of balance detract from Metal Max Xeno’s entertaining oddities.
