I am Setsuna is a return to the classic JRPG formula

As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obvious when looking ...   read

YIIK is precisely the right amount of weird

Weirdness is a taut rope to walk -- too little and it distracts, too much and it's overpowering. It has to be just the right amount, mixed with enough sincerity to keep the whole affair from feeling twee or, even worse, smug. From what I pl...   read

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens has three improvements to the Lego formula

It's easy to forget that a fair amount of iteration has come to the Lego video game series over the past decade. All the titles -- there are upward of 20 now -- are similar in that they're whimsical, lighthearted takes on popular subje...   read

Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is a killer time

Hit Mango is a delightful game on mobile devices that involves punching juicy stone fruits of the genus Mangifera. But we're here to talk about Hitman GO, one of Agent 47's brief dalliances with mobile platforms. Similar to last year's...   read

Dying just makes Super Rude Bear Resurrection easier

A corpse is typically not a welcoming sight, but in Super Rude Bear Resurrection it absolutely is. That decomposing body (which is yours from seconds ago, by the way) means that maybe you can skirt a particularly challenging section us...   read

I played Criminal Girls 2 and wasn't sexually aroused at all

While Japan is exoticized elsewhere as a land of weird sex stuff, Criminal Girls 2 doesn't feel that foreign, given that the original game got a western release. And it's probably the perviest game I came across (not literally, hence the ti...   read

Exist Archive looks great, but it has a lot to prove

When Spike Chunsoft and tri-Ace announced Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, I was supremely impressed with the visual style. As it turns out it looks even better in person, as I witnessed during my hands-on time with the TGS build. ...   read

Sword Art Online plays so much better when you can fly

I had mixed thoughts on Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment last year, but ultimately I came away happy. Funnily enough, as someone who absolutely hated the second arc of the anime, I actually found the follow-up, Lost Song, to...   read

Miracle Girls Festival is fairly standard

Sega's Miracle Girls Festival borrows from all over the place. The rhythm game features girls from a number of different anime, and it employs the same engine as Project Diva titles. If you're familiar with all of that, you'll pro...   read

Crazy racer has you drive multiple cars at once

Game designers rarely go off-road when creating racing games and eschew lesser-traveled paths in favor of more established, familiar routes. Not Gordon Midwood, though; the one lone developer at indie studio Different Cloth is working on a ...   read

Meddle in the affairs of others, control their minds in Randall

Clerks has a scene where Randal Graves, an irresponsible and indifferent video store employee, tells a customer that he finds it best to stay out of other people's affairs. The laissez-faire approach isn't a noble attempt to keep ...   read

Poncho is a mind-melting retro journey through post-robopocalypse

Last year, we got a sneak peek at a rather peculiar puzzle-platformer named Poncho. Launching on Kickstarter and debuting at EGX for attendees, it showed a lot of promise in exploring the earth after humans went extinct. Unfortunately, crow...   read

How the hell did Galak-Z hide a Gundam for three years?

We've covered the "Spelunky by way of Macross" space shooting roguelike for a couple of years now and the follow-up from Skulls of the Shogun developer 17-bit is almost here, coming to PS4 August 4 and PC a few months down the line (regrett...   read

Persona 4 goes full Miku in Dancing All Night

Severed is full of one-handed vengeance

There’s something serene about exploring a desolate place for the first time. Too often in games I find myself dropped into an environment, expected to pick up the pieces quickly to achieve a goal and left with little time to absorb.&...   read

Volume is a more thoughtful approach to Metal Gear Solid VR Mission-like stealth

Volume is a fitting name for a polygonal, Metal Gear Solid VR Missions-looking stealth game with enough rectangles to feed a geometry class for the entire year. In the case of Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone follow-up, however, "volume" is ...   read

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Al...   read

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or later. With that tr...   read

Natural Doctrine is a brutal, sort of ugly turn-based strategy game

Sure, Natural Doctrine doesn't look great (well, the environments; it does look better in miniature on the Vita). It's a far cry from director Atsushi Ii's gorgeous minimalism in Patapon. But Kadokawa Games' first internal venture can ...   read

I cant help but feel its high time Nintendo moved past the 1994/96 designs of Donkey Kong and most of the Mushroom All thier other IPs vary visually, but DKs original design looks better than his DKC one
