Fate/Grand Order Arcade's fights actually look good for once

I can forgive Fate/Grand Order for not looking completely amazing. I mean, it's meant to be a mobile gambling hellscape, not a triple-A graphical showcase, right? And some of the flashier moments look alright, even, in that 2.5D JRPG s...

Review: Total War: Warhammer 2

As much as I've enjoyed and admired the games of The Creative Assembly, I can't help but admit that I'm something of a fair-weather Total War fan. With the exception of Shogun 2, the sheer scale of a typical Total War game te...

Review: Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder

When Rock of Ages 2 releases on August 29, it'll be almost exactly six years since Jordan reviewed the first Rock of Ages, way back on my birthday in 2011. Back then, it was a quirky palate cleanser from the almost aggressive weirdness...

Tokyo Tattoo Girls leans in on Tokyo, Tattoos, and Girls

Tattoos are cool. I'm too indecisive to get one for myself, but they're fun to look at on other people, and that seems to be what NIS America are going for now that they're localizing Tokyo Tattoo Girls, a new PS Vita and PC game from devel...
