Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

Ys Seven travels to PC on August 30

Is it just me, or is XSEED on a roll with their Falcom PC games? From the looks of it, I answered my own question since Ys Seven hits Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store on August 30. While I missed out on the original PSP game, I messed ...

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...

Oh boy, Akiba's Beat's English dub is atrocious

Here I was starting to think people take game roles more seriously when this new Akiba's Beat story trailer came along and slapped me in the face. Its predecessor, Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed, also had a pathetic English dub, but si...

Trails of Cold Steel 1, 2 are finally PC-bound

When I search for headers, I Google the name in Japanese to get unique screens (but that's my secret; don't tell anyone else). What came up for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold 2 was a lot of romancin'. Like those heroines, the PC ...

PC Port Report: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

Individuals on Destructoid have expressed surprise that I have never played a Senran Kagura title before. I'm not sure what that says about me – or the people on Dtoid. Time for that to change. Now that Senran Kagura Estival Versus ha...

Pre-order Akiba's Beat in Europe, get a neat gift

You may not be ripping clothes off of demons, but Akiba's Beat still looks like one of the better role-playing experiences in that mid/low-development budget range. Whereas many games, including Akiba's Trip, just give you a soundtrack...

Review: Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns

The first 15 hours of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns may be the slowest first 15 hours of any game I’ve ever played. Some games I’ve played are over in half that time, but here it’s just the point where new elements final...

Review: Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

I'll be the first to admit that when a Western release of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star was first announced, I couldn't help but be a little excited. Type-Moon's Fate universe is something that I hold a high level of adoratio...

PC Port Report: Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel

At first glance, Nitroplus Blasterz could be mistaken for one of those elaborate fan-made fantasy fight videos, cobbled together out of stolen sprites and the Mugen fighting engine. This bizarre collection of anime heroines from dozens of d...

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...
