Review: Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force

If there is one complaint of the current generation of gaming I wholeheartedly agree with, it’s the sheer number of “HD” remakes being shoved out because native backwards compatibility is absent on the PlayStation 4 and Xb...   read

Baby-making RPG Conception II coming to Steam next month

It feels like forever ago, but Conception II only came out in 2014 on the 3DS and Vita -- and even then we kind of knew the latter's days were numbered. If you didn't grab it then though no biggie, because Spike Chunsoft is bringing it to S...   read

I love Paper Mario: Color Splash's sense of style

Nintendo has taken the Paper Mario series in a light-adventure direction that, as a fan of the original N64 game and its superb sequel The Thousand-Year Door, I'm not especially enthused about. That said, I have to appreciate the papercraf...   read

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...   read

Team Ninja's Nioh returns with a beta demo on August 23
