Sometimes Nostalgia Is A Jump Rope: A Quick Review Of 'Final Fantasy IX'

Final Fantasy IX is what many would consider a dividing rod among fans. The last of the PS1 games in the series, you're either a hardcore fan or you despise this game immensely. The biggest reason for the division is the look and tone of the game, as it took a more playful and cartoonish […]

A Different Kind Of RPG In 'Legrand Legacy' At PAX West

One of the last games I got to see in the Indie Megabooth was an interesting RPG title from Indonesia-based SEMISOFT called Legrand Legacy. I didn't get a long demo of the game, but I got a good enough sense of what was going on. SO much of this game played into classic JRPG styles, it […]

The last experience I had that turned out to be a total waste of time for various reasons was Conan: Exiles, as I watched teammates die slow deaths […]

RPGing To The Beat: We Review 'Metronomicon: Slay The Dance Floor'

I've spoken in reviews before about Crypt Of The NecroDancer from Brace Yourself Games, as the game utilized rhythm elements to form a unique dungeon crawler that was both thrilling and entertaining. So when I saw Metronomicon: Slay The Dance Floor debut their trailer a few months ago, I was instantly reminded of the formula, […]

Going Back To The Underground: We Review 'Undertale' For PS4

When I first got the chance to play Undertale on PC, I was blown away. I had an RPG that reminded me so much of titles like Earthbound, but with some new mechanics that forced me to rethink the way I approach games and what kind of experience I had—both for better and worse. After […]

Exploiting More Of The Cosmos: We Review 'Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition'

Back in December, we got this awesome turn-based strategy game called Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander for Steam that was both awesome and hilarious. That game felt like a mesh of a dozen different sci-fi games and properties I've loved over the years as it took a stern look at space being just as incompetent, greedy, […]

Whatever! I Spellcast What I Want!: We Review Fictorum

For a while, Fictorum looked like it might be one of the best magic-using games to be produced.

Splitting The Story In Two: We Review 'Fallen Legion'

It's an odd concept to have the same game put on two different systems with different stories, but Fallen Legion is taking a step toward being unique. The game itself is really cool, but the concept itself kinda falls by the waist as we delve into the PS4 version of the game. Fallen Legion has […]
