by Hamza CTZ Aziz

It's here! It's finally here! Pokemon X and Y is out this week for the 3DS and it's pretty much going to be the only thing anyone talks about leading up to the next-gen consoles. Oh, Beyond: Two Souls is also out this week. It has emotions and stuff. You like emotions, right?

Other biggies this week are two repacked re-releases: Borderlands 2 and Dishonored Game of the Year Editions. Oh, videogame industry. No wonder gamers love Steam sales so much.

Review: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness photo
Review: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
by Chris Carter

I've been playing tactical games since the NES, but there was something about the Disgaea franchise that really resonates with me. Offering up a ridiculous level of customization and refinement, Disgaea sat upon a pedestal in the strategy pantheon, with hardly any competition in terms of how hardcore the experience was.

But 10 years later, there are a lot of other games out there able to replicate that feeling, and the Disgaea franchise isn't quite as reverential as it once was. It's a good thing then that Disgaea D2 hearkens back to what made the original so great.
