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.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Review

The Gwent card game is now fully released, and so is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, a single-player campaign based upon it. Though unlikely to convert huge numbers to the card game, it at least provides another engaging tale in the Witcher universe.

Moonfall Ultimate Review

In the land of Moonfall Ultimate, lots of nasty creatures are making trouble, and someone has to go put them down with necessary roughness. Whether doing so is a good idea can be learned by reading this review.

Metal Max Xeno Review

Metal Max is an intriguing concept for an RPG, centered around vehicular tank combat in a blasted post-apocalyptic urban setting. Western audiences haven’t seen much of this series in the past, and Xeno’s awkward narrative and obtuse technical systems aren’t going to change that anytime soon.

Disgaea 1 Complete Review

Disgaea 1 Complete adds little as far as new content goes, but the classic gameplay and story return. Does it hold up after all these years, or is it merely just a fresh paint job slapped onto a vintage title that shows its age?

Cosmic Star Heroine Review (Switch)

Over a year after its initial blast-off, Zeboyd Games’ planet-hopping secret agent RPG has landed on Nintendo’s newest handheld. Does the Switch version show signs of intelligent life, or is it a Black Hole imploding in on itself?

Stardew Valley Review

Stardew Valley combines the best ideas in farming simulation games from the past two decades. The game is even greater than the sum of its parts, making it a multi-platform success accessible to both casual and hardcore RPGamers.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption Review

It’s September, and that means it’s back-to-school season! So be sure to pick up all the essentials, like hinge grease, grappling hooks, and lock picks… Oh? What sort of school do you go to then?

Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

After a decade of waiting for a return to home consoles, Valkyria Chronicles 4 brings its unique art style and combat back to the big screen. The strategy is certainly up to snuff but the story struggles to match the excellence of the original.
