Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offb...

Get your grid-based steampunkery on in Vaporum

If you think that “steampunk dungeon crawler” sounds like Occam’s panty/brief-dropping sludge rock jug band, you would of course be correct. It also happens to be the genre type of FatBot Studio’s pro...

Look at this bushel of happiness on the PoPoLoCrois Farm Story Japanese cover

Okay, I know no one cares that much about farm sims or things like that these days unless they're teeming with in-app purchases. Or PoPoLoCrois, for that matter. But for some reason, I really like both. I also really like the...

Seven minute Cyber Sleuth trailer is not your dad's Digimon

People who watched Digimon in their youth are old enough to be parents. Damn millennial parents and their Digimon-playing children.  Some good music, a Summer Wars-looking digital world (yes, Hosoda, I know), a detailed...

Rez, Lumines creator working on puzzle RPG '18'

On a few separate occasions this year, I've been reminded that Rez exists and felt a flood of guilt after recalling how long it's been since I last played this ridiculously cool sequence (too long). A new Rez, or Rez HD on c...

NIS America showcases Disgaea 5 with new trailer

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, the latest entry in Nippon Ichi Software's iconic tactical RPG series, is coming to PS4 in North America and Europe this fall. Check out this awesome new trailer. [Update: Earlier, I wrote NIS just announced the launch window. This is because I'm dumb and bad at my job.]

Combat looks fun as ever in Dragon's Dogma Online

There may not be publicly-disclosed plans to bring Dragon's Dogma Online to the West, but you can't stop me from watching this trailer, Capcom. Not even your corporate wolves can. (Yes, yes, I know they hunt in packs, Pawn. Shut up about it already.)

In the world of Sorcerer King everything is terrible photo
In the world of Sorcerer King everything is terrible
by Jason Faulkner

This turn-based fantasy/strategy with city-building elements is super enjoyable. Even in Steam Early Access, it's got a surprising amount of polish, more so than several AAA games I can think of. I have encountered no gamebreaking bugs, and the main problems right now seem to be stat balance and unimplemented art.

If you enjoyed the RPG elements of Heroes of Might and Magic and the city-building of Civilization, there's a lot to like in this game's eclectic blend of gameplay. However, if turn-based gameplay isn't really your thing, Steam's $39.99 price tag may be a bit too steep.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is devilishly difficult, set for release on May 5 photo
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is devilishly difficult, set for release on May 5
by Alessandro Fillari

What a busy year this is going to be for Atlus. With the release of Persona 5 in the coming months, there are a lot of expectations for what's ahead with the Shin Megami Tensei franchise. In order to keep fans satiated till then, the publisher is offering another dose of MegaTen with a revisit to another much-loved title.   

Just last month, Atlus released the follow-up to Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 in Japan. As an updated version of the Nintendo DS's Devil Survivor 2, the new 3DS release will have players re-experiencing the events of the original game along with a new story to unfold. Though fans in the west were left wondering about the fate of its release on this end, all we got was a vague confirmation that it was coming with no concrete date set.

Fortunately during a special hands-on session hosted by Atlus, the publisher has now revealed plans for the western release of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker on May 5, 2015. Now on a new system, this ultra-quirky and devilishly difficult take on the MegaTen formula will get players to experience Devil Survivor 2 in a fresh way.

Review: Blackguards 2 photo
Review: Blackguards 2
by Darren Nakamura

A few weeks ago, I called Blackguards 2 "deep, unfriendly, and buggy." I had put several hours into the tactical role-playing game, but hadn't seen enough of the story to comfortably put out a review.

Fast forward to today, and my original assessment requires a bit of tweaking. Within the first two weeks of its release, Daedalic put out two huge patches, each aiming to fix the stability issues that plagued Blackguards 2 at launch. The patches did introduce their own issues, but for the most part I would describe it now as only deep and unfriendly. Two out of three ain't bad.
