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

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.


Phantom Doctrine Review

For a game based on espionage, the Cold War is certainly a fitting setting and one that Phantom Doctrine happily jumps into. It’s not as simple as East vs. West, however, with plenty of threads that need to be untangled.


Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass Review

Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass is a quirky, emotional game. Isn’t it time someone made a sub-genre to describe RPGs inspired by Earthbound, so reviewers wouldn’t always namedrop Earthbound? In this one, you can be a bear!


Yakuza Kiwami 2 Review

The Dragon of Dojima is back once again to play arcade games, run hostess clubs, and bash thugs with varying implements. Kiryu even gets a love interest in Kiwami 2, but who cares about that when there are tigers to fight!


Rainbow Skies Review

Contrary to common belief, in Rainbow Skies characters fight much better immediately after devouring huge helpings of food. This is just one of many interesting things that will be experienced in the world of Lunah.


Banner Saga 3 Review

It was the best of times and the worst of times. Sam Wachter has finished the Banner Saga trilogy. She cried like a baby, threw the controller a few times, and watched all her favourites die.


Vampyr Review

It’s 1918 and vampires are in. In London, that is. Is their return a triumphant one? Or will Vampyr be relegated to the history books?


Moonlighter Review

Tired of always playing as a rootless adventurer? Moonlighter offers the chance to stay put in your home town and run the shop you inherited from your grandpa. Don’t worry – there’s still plenty of adventuring to be done, too.


Hand of Fate 2 Review

Hand of Fate 2 is an accurate and bold recreation of a fantasy card game. However, authenticity aside, it jars as a video game due to its insurmountable randomness.
