Shotgun Legend Review

Wastebasket Games unashamedly takes the original The Legend of Zelda formula, and gives it the hillbilly makeover along with an option for two-player co-op play. Do these features improve Shotgun Legend over its primary influence, or make it a mere clone?

Giraffe and Annika Review

Giraffe and Annika is a title from indie Japanese developer Atelier Mimina making its console debut after a PC launch earlier this year. As an adventure title, it’s not particularly deep, but the wholesome charm it exudes makes it a very pleasant experience.

Hellpoint Review

A derelict space station locked in orbit around a black hole is certainly a unique setting for an action RPG. Hellpoint sticks quite close to the familiar Souls-like gameplay formula while injecting just a bit of sci-fi horror.

Fairy Tail Review

Fairy Tail has hit the gaming scene in an epic RPG spanning many arcs from the popular graphic novel and anime. Does the guild prove its merits or will they be another forgotten tale among the rubble?

Persona 4 Golden PC Video Review

Our latest video content offers an audio-visual version of Alex Fuller’s review of Persona 4 Golden’s recent PC release. The release offers a new set of RPGamers the chance to check out one of the PlayStation Vita’s best titles.

Persona 4 Golden PC Review

Persona 4 Golden was easily one of the PlayStation Vita’s biggest titles, though the system’s lack of success meant there are many out there yet to play it. Atlus has given a new set of RPGamers the chance to play the game on PC, and it certainly holds up.

Signs of the Sojourner Review

Echodog Games’ first title is a short, nuanced look at community, travel, and the difficulties of communication. The card-based conversation system is easy to pick up, but making everybody happy is a different story.

Pillars of Dust Review

Taking inspiration from the RPGs of old, Pillars of Dust takes the retro-style and adds a few quality-of-life improvements to the mix with reduced grinding and balanced combat mechanics. Does the formula work for a modern audience?

Ys: Memories of Celceta PS4 Review

Ys: Memories of Celceta’s PlayStation 4 re-release is the same quality game we’ve seen on other platforms. That’s not a bad thing, though those looking for new bells and whistles may not find what they’re seeking.

Dusk Diver Review

Dusk Diver takes a few inspirations from Persona and Yakuza in an action RPG set in the Ximending district of Taipei, Taiwan. It’s easy to dismiss it as an also-ran but it has a low-key charm that makes it a pleasant experience while it lasts.

Light Fairytale Episode 1 Review

Light Fairytale Episode 1 might one day be the mediocre beginning of an otherwise good RPG, but it’s hard to say at this point. With well under five hours of gameplay, it’s light on content in almost every aspect that counts.

Pong Quest Review

Pong Quest is a twist on the classic game Pong with a dungeon crawler attached. Is it a fun game to play? Well, a better question is: how much Pong can you handle before you can’t Pong no more?

Dungeon Defenders: Awakened Review

A brand new Dungeon Defenders game gives players more hybrid tower defense and RPG action. Though Chromatic Games certainly has the gameplay nailed down, the success of Dungeon Defenders: Awakened looks likely to depend on its future support.
