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.

Astalon: Tears of the Earth Review

Though I walk through the shadow of the tower of death, I shall fear no gorgons. For the Titan has my back, and I shall not falter. His hands, they rebuild me. He marks me as his, and my blood runneth over the stones. Again, and again, and again.

Death end re;Quest Switch Review

Game director Shina Ninomiya is trapped in the VRMMORPG World’s Odyssey and must get to the end of the game to escape. Ryan McCarthy checks out the Switch port of this interesting VN/RPG hybrid from Compile Heart.

Deiland Review

In a world of laughter, a world of tears, a young man deals with his hopes and fears. There’s much for him to share, so that all may be aware, Planet Deiland is not so small.

Outriders Review

Outriders blends the depth of RPGs with the intensity of shooters. Yet, this hybrid lacks something groundbreaking in order to be a serious contender in either genre.

NieR Replicant Review

It’s been over a decade, but western gamers have finally been given a chance to play the Replicant incarnation of NieR. More than that, this remaster features enough new content to make an already good game even better.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards Review

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards aims to further showcase the exploits of its interesting title character. RPGamer sees if the game successfully transitions the series from comic book to hack-and-slash RPG.

Biomutant Review

Experiment 101 promised an ambitious experience with its debut RPG Biomutant. However, did all the ambitions the game boasted prior to release make it into the final cut? Or is the experience plagued by broken dreams and technical issues galore?
