Fate/Grand Order's Oni Pagoda will test your roster

Fate/Grand Order may not be quite ready to debut its next big story expansion, but the time between now and Spring won't be empty, if the game's handlers at Aniplex have anything to say about it. Players are still trading in their curr...

The complete Utawarerumono trilogy is headed to PC

Its title might be a bit of a mouthful to pronounce, but Utawarerumono is a good time. I've sung its praises over the years, and despite some missteps, I'd recommend the core series wholeheartedly...bar one problem: The original story ...

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2019

2019 sure was a year, and if I do say so myself, it felt like a pretty strong one for games. Strong enough that I actually had genuine trouble just narrowing down the entries that stuck out in my mind, where usually the struggle is in bendi...

The Games that Defined the Decade: Fortnite

Fortnite is a latecomer to this decade, only really breaking out in the halcyon days of last year once it became clear that Epic had something lasting on its hands, and not another also-ran riding PUBG's coattails.  Looking back, it fe...

Fate/Grand Order kicks off the season of the witch-hunt

Fate/Grand Order players have been having a hectic quarter, with back-to-back events threatening their supply of stamina-refilling Golden Apples. First there was Shimousa, then this year's Halloween event, then a rerun of last year's C...

Review: Code Vein

When reviewing a game, it's a given that one would play the game being reviewed to learn more about it, but it's decidedly less common that just posting a game review would make for a similar learning experience. That's what happened when I...

Review in Progress: Code Vein

If it wasn't obvious enough yet, it's worth saying right now: Code Vein is like Dark Souls. It's cliché to try to compare From Software's landmark series to anything these days, but the shoe fits in this case. It fits so we...

Review: Utawarerumono: ZAN

When reviewing a game, it's usually a good idea to try to ask the question "Who is this game for?" Sure, it's a bit presumptuous, but attempting to figure out what theoretical audience a given game is trying to serve can shed light on what ...

Homeworld 3 announced by Blackbird Interactive at PAX West

It's actually happening. Long after becoming an in-joke/pipe dream for aging PC gamers, Homeworld 3 is a thing that will be coming to computer shelves sooner or later. Gearbox, who picked up the rights for the franchise and produced th...

Fate/Grand Order is off to the wacky races this summer

Australians and other residents of the deeper southern hemisphere may be midway through their winters right about now, but it's sunny and bright where it matters - inside mobile gacha games like Fate/Grand Order, whose English edition just ...

Review: Sea of Solitude

The sea is loneliness. That's not a spoiler for Sea of Solitude, the latest effort from Berlin-based indie studio Jo-Mei, and a game that, since its announcement some years ago, has been fairly explicit about its allegorical nature, and its...

It's Ladies' Night in Fate/Grand Order's new story chapter

Get ready to Rayshift, masters, because after a long round of event reruns, Fate/Grand Order is back with another main story chapter. FGO's Epic of Remnant campaign continues with the second "Pseudo-Singularity" chapter, titled Su...

The new Humble Manga Bundle lets you read the show

For a self-proclaimed weeb, I don't read nearly as much manga as I think I should. Thankfully, that sad state of affairs is changing, thanks to increased accessibility and dropping costs. And if you're looking for a handful of (digital) man...

Review: Outer Wilds

I didn't even last ten minutes into my first session with Outer Wilds, the intriguing open-world adventure game from Annapurna Interactive and Mobius Digital. A freshly minted astronaut from the tiny world of Timber Hearth, I took a bit too...
