Dragon Quest XI on Switch is going to be special

The Switch port of Dragon Quest XI was hinted at months before the system first hit store shelves. We know it's coming, but since it was announced Square Enix has remained tight-lipped on the highly anticipated port. At Tokyo Game Show...

Review: Yo-kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps

The world of Yo-kai Watch has always been one I've admired from afar. I've viewed a few episodes of the anime and dabbled in the first few games of the series, but nothing so far has planted the seed of fandom inside of me. For many ye...

Here's a better look at World of Final Fantasy Maxima

Let's recap World of Final Fantasy Maxima, as some folks are having difficulty parsing exactly what the new Maxima moniker entails.  In 2016 Square Enix dropped the very cute and surprisingly deep World of Final Fantasy on PS4 and Vita...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood (Patch 4.4)

Final Fantasy XIV waxes and wanes like a patch in a wind. Translation: some eras are better than others. While I generally go all-out on endgame-heavy even number patches with my Paladin, Bard, and Scholar: odd numbers (called "catch-up pat...

Review-in-Progress: The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

I don't have any experience with the Bard's Tale games, yet I found myself excited when I heard that a fourth title was Kickstarted. I think it's gotten to the point where anything Brian Fargo gets behind has me anticipating greatness....

I hope these silly Final Fantasy XV mods never stop

You have to appreciate life's simple pleasures. Sometimes, modders create complete overhauls with their own original characters and stories. Other times, they swap models around to hilarious effect. I can't stop laughing at this Final Fanta...

Review: Valkyria Chronicles 4

If you were to tell me that your Uncle Who Totally Works At Sega said that Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest game in the tactical role-playing franchise, was actually developed in 2009 as the original sequel to 2008's Valkyria Chronicles, a...

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna - The Golden Country

Massive worlds to sift through have become signature trademarks for the Xenoblade series. The first was lengthy, X was MMO-esque in size, and Xenoblade 2 is par for the course. It makes sense then that the first expansion, Torna - The Golde...

Undertale for Switch is still fantastic

What can I really say about Undertale that hasn’t already been said? For me personally, having Undertale on another platform with a clean slate is already a huge advantage given the onset of guilt that comes from a certain garden pl...

All we had to do was ring the damn bells, CJ!

This is the best thing I've seen since Aladdin's Jafar wandered into Final Fantasy XV. Using a tool built by Meowmaritus, modders are able to import characters into Dark Souls and also create their own custom models. Someone had the bright ...

Castlevania fans need to keep an eye on Timespinner

Now here's a name I haven't heard in years. Timespinner is a tribute to '90s action-platformers, most notably Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It has a neat time-stopping mechanic for world traversal puzzles. You'll use melee attacks, sp...

Ashen's passive co-op pairs well with Souls-y combat

It's rare that I get to cover a game twice in a pre-release state, but I'm happy I had the chance with Ashen, an action-RPG I first played at E3 last year and just saw again last weekend at PAX West. While the first impression was promising...

Dragon Marked for Death will make for some kick-ass co-op

Inti Creates is one of the more reliable supporters of Nintendo hardware. Its games are a shining beacon of quality on the 3DS and its Switch output is quickly matching that same level of excellence. The developer jumped on board quite quic...

The future of Octopath Traveler is looking bright

Octopath Traveler seems to be doing very well for itself, hitting high marks on the review circuit and selling well enough for Square Enix to consider it a success. So it's time for oodles of DLC right? Well, no, but a sequel is likely at t...

Don't sleep on the wild and weird action-RPG Biomutant

I can't really call Biomutant my biggest surprise of PAX because I once publicly said it "looks weird as hell and I'm really into it," and the Internet never forgets. But if it weren't for that article, it sure would be. It's strange, risky...

Deviljho is stomping into Monster Hunter: World PC

A certain beefy-looking pickled beast will soon start making the rounds in Monster Hunter: World on PC. Capcom is rolling out an update today that adds the fearsome Deviljho along with related armor sets, weapons, and the Dragonproof Mantle...
