Review: Epistory - Typing Chronicles

It's not often a game forces the player to learn a new control scheme. The dual-stick setup of most modern controllers and the WASD keyboard layout are established as as a standard at this point, so a game needs a very good reason to stray ...   read

It's time to pour cocktails for catgirls

I stumbled on "waifu bartending simulator" VA-11 HALL-A a year and a half ago and was smitten like a kitten amid its catgirls and racist corgis. Then the waiting game. And now it's almost over, to be replaced by an even better game: the ac...   read

Pathway is a pulp adventure tactics game
