It's been a pretty grim year for many people, but all things considered, it's been great if all you care about is games and anime! Thank goodness, then, that we're on a website primarily concerned with those things, which means I don't have...   read

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization might be the best Sword Art Online game yet.  Then again, we might not be talking about all that much. This is, after all, just the third major Sword Art Online game (fifth, counting ...   read

At first, Root Letter (stylized as “√Letter”) appears to try to hook players with the thought of solving a crime. A murder mystery is afoot, and it’s up to me, the player, to solve it. But actually playing ...   read

Go on a road trip with your buds in a Final Fantasy XV supercar

Racing games often get associated with car commercials, but it's more unusual for RPGs to get into the mix. But those madmen actually did it. And using Final Fantasy to boot! "The Star of Lucis", a one-of-a-kind, custom Audi R8 Superca...   read

Summer Lesson to get an English edition for Asia

Last year I mentioned that Summer Lesson, a Project Morpheus tech demo cooked up by Bandai Namco's Tekken team and later expanded to a full game, looked like everything I wanted out of VR. That hasn't changed, as even after a year it's...   read

Review: Star Trek Online

In the interests of full disclosure, I’ll tell you right now: I’m really into Star Trek Online, and have been for the six-plus years of its life so far. By Steam’s count I’ve logged nearly three thousand hours i...   read

Review: Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

When it first debuted a few years ago, Psycho-Pass was well-regarded among anime fans and critics alike. The show's dense plotting, bleak setting, police-procedural chops, and cyberpunk flair called to mind landmark sci-fi anime l...   read

Review: God Eater 2: Rage Burst

It hasn't been too long since I reviewed God Eater Resurrection, and in that review, I noted that the long time it's taken for a God Eater game to appear on English-speaking shores helped make the game seem fresh and new all over again...   read

After six years, Star Trek Online releases its most sought-after starship

Behold Star Trek Online's console UI

Generally speaking, it's a good thing when a game is made available on both PC and console. Then again, it's not always an easy or smooth process, getting a game from one platform dynamic to the other, and many players are justifiably wary ...   read

No Man's Sky's day one patch almost sounds like a new game

These days it's not uncommon for a big game to have a day one patch that irons out some odd bugs or even activates a feature or two, but it's still a rare thing to have a doozy like the one planned for No Man's Sky's opening day.  In a...   read

We Happy Few puts a new face on survival, but it's not ready for its close-up yet

When it took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few was easily one of the most intriguing titles of the show, promising a trippy story set in the drug-addled English township of Wellington We...   read

Review: God Eater Resurrection

It's been quite a long time since Bandai Namco first threw its hat into the monster-hunting ring with God Eater, and since then the landscape has changed. Monster Hunter itself moved to the Nintendo 3DS, a whole new generation of conso...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it wasn't until 20...   read

Review: Brigador

Imagine, if you will, Syndicate as a shooter. No, not that one. A shooter from the older days, when console and consumer PC hardware lacked the power to render violence in the first-person. That's Brigador, and it's glorious that ...   read

Shen's Last Gift is XCOM 2's Last DLC (for now)

Ready for more XCOM 2 DLC? I wasn't, frankly speaking, because whenever a new pack drops I get an irresistible urge to start again fresh. At this rate, I'll never see plasma weapons! And yet, the packs keep coming, with the newest one,...   read

Star Trek Online's expansion launch trailer travels back from next week

I always get a little annoyed whenever a company debuts a "launch trailer" for their game more than 48 hours before the actual launch of a product. I know why they do it (i.e. to drum up hype, prompt some attention/preorders, etc.) but it j...   read

Meet the people of Neo San Francisco in 2064: Read Only Memories

Games like Snatcher and Gabriel Knight were a little bit before my time, but they're pretty intriguing nonetheless. The fine folks at MidBoss do seem to remember those times, though, and 2064: Read Only Memories looks to recall th...   read
