Dragon Star Varnir Review

Dragon Star Varnir has an interesting combat system yet tells an unbalanced tale. The root of the problem for this adequate turn-based JRPG is lacking a proper balance between presentation and substance.

Monster Harvest Review

Monster Harvest is a game that needs more time on the vine to ripen into something enjoyable. Between a bevy of glitches and a lack of genre-staple features, RPGamers would be best served waiting before digging in.

Tales of Arise Review

Tales of Arise triumphantly marks the 25th anniversary of a hugely beloved series. The newest entry successfully builds upon all of the franchise’s iconic elements to become iconic itself.

Cris Tales Review

Cris Tales has players hopping between eras on a quest to stop the Time Empress. A dazzling graphical style is overshadowed by too many gameplay mechanics.

Wildermyth Review

A tale as old as time, a turn-based tactical RPG with more hits than misses. Wildermyth’s great combat ideas do outweigh some story pacing issues and is worth a look.

Dreamscaper Review

The full release of action roguelite Dreamscaper is finally here. Afterburner Studios has cultivated a strong gameplay loop that grabs players with its melancholic but immersive atmosphere.

Scarlet Nexus Review

Scarlet Nexus sees players joining future humanity’s forces and using special powers to fight against the monstrous Others. For a new IP, Bandai Namco has a winner on its hands.

Chicory: A Colorful Tale Review

What happens when all of the color in the world has been removed? Has the world lost its hope and joy? In Chicory: A Colorful Tale it’s up to a sweet lil’ pup to use her magical paintbrush and restore beautiful color into the world. Bust out your paints, colored pencils, and relax your way through one of the kindest games on the market.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition Review

Commander Shepard’s tale gets another opportunity to be told. Though Mass Effect 2’s clunky combat and the presence of old glitches hold it back a bit, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a great remaster of the original trilogy.

Tainted Grail: Conquest Review

Tainted Grail: Conquest is a roguelite deckbuilder that combines its gameplay loop with a multi-layered story. The slow and steady approach wins out and makes the game well worth a look.
