Ring Fit Adventure Review

Gimme an R! Gimme an I! Gimme an N! Gimme a G! What’s that spell? A high-quality workout game with tons of variety that actually makes you sweat and love every minute of it.

Zwei: The Arges Adventure Review

Everyone knows that eating lots of food in a short period of time results in the immediate healing of injuries, plus becoming stronger. Nihon Falcom is good at educating people on such crucially under-reported information, more of which will be found in this game.

Sunless Skies Review

Locomotives don’t often reach the space between stars, but Failbetter Games makes a strong case for their presence. Sunless Skies, RPGamer’s Most Original Game of 2019, explores the intersection of ambition, romance, and a surprising amount of tea.

Tales of Innocence Review

Another review gets checked off Gaijin’s New Year’s resolutions list. How does this innocent little game fare against the roar of the tempest, the warmth of hearts, and the croaking of frogs?

Final Fantasy VII Remake Review

The first part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake has finally arrived. Exactly how successful the full project is remains to be seen, but if nothing else the opening act has done everything it could in getting our reviewer incredibly excited for the second.

Element: Space Review

Sci-fi tactical RPG Element: Space hit consoles last month after originally launching for PC last year. While the game has some interesting combat, the rest unfortunately fails to offer adequate support.

Mistover Review

Usually walking into mist-covered areas is a bad idea, at least according to horror movies. Here’s a game that requires adventuring into misty places though. Read the review to learn more.

Persona 5 Royal Review

Persona 5 has joined its predecessors in getting an enhanced release, albeit in a shorter time-frame. As very much the definitive edition of the game, Persona 5 Royal’s new content adds a good amount of freshness, while tweaks elsewhere ensure it keeps even more in step with players.

Langrisser I & II Review

The last time anyone outside Japan could get a new copy of Langrisser was right before grunge took over the radio. Now it’s available for modern audiences alongside its sequel, and seekers of tactical action should definitely investigate.

Hero Must Die. Again Review

Designer Shoji Masuda is known for some distinctive titles that have generally only been able to garner attention in Japan. Degica Games is finally giving western RPGamers the chance to check out one such title, the anti-RPG Hero Must Die. Again.

Paranoia: Happiness Is Mandatory Review

Bigben and Cyanide Studios bring the Paranoia franchise to the world of video games. Take on the role of a Troubleshooter and shoot trouble wherever you find it. Traitors are everywhere, and should you discover that YOU are the traitor, kindly head to your nearest conveniently located termination booth!

Romancing SaGa 3 Review

Romancing SaGa 3 is now available to English-speaking audiences for the first time. The result is a game that fans of the SaGa formula will embrace, though it comes with all the asterisks that characterize the series for more casual players.

Azur Lane: Crosswave Review

Azur Lane: Crosswave sees personified versions of warships battle it out on the open seas. Compile Heart and Felistella title provides some lighthearted enjoyment, but doesn’t make any particularly noteworthy waves.
