Review: The Princess Guide

One of the things I quite enjoy about Nippon Ichi Software is it's always willing to try new things. Each year, you can depend on the developer-cum-publisher to release one or two titles that are completely unique from everything else in it...

Review: Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

The Kirby franchise has always been something of a petri dish for Nintendo. While its other franchises remain more-or-less the same with each new entry, the company hasn't been afraid to experiment with the pink puff. Games like K...

Review: ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove

A few months back, I got the opportunity to play ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove with series creator Greg Johnson. In a relaxed and comfortably humid showroom, the two of us sat side-by-side, guiding the titular heroes through this fr...

For the past few weeks, the March release that has been at the top of my most-wanted list is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. I've been amped up on that game since it was first revealed in 2017. But there is a second game coming out this month th...

During Nintendo's "Blue Ocean" period two console cycles ago, a variety of once niche and unique genres were suddenly thrust into the spotlight as gaming's reach expanded further than ever before. On the Wii and DS, anything could be sold a...

Review: Etrian Odyssey Nexus

Even though it's one of the more niche franchises on the market, it's difficult for me to name a series more synonymous with dual-screen gaming than Etrian Odyssey. Starting as an easy-to-overlook, classic RPG on the Nintendo DS, the series...

Review: The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince

Several days ago, a question came across my Twitter feed asking me to name an average game I absolutely adore. It was difficult for me to answer because I don't very much consider any game I adore to be average. Breath of the Wild's not ave...
