You won't be hacking and slashing much in the first hour of Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I’ve actually never played a Dragon Quest game before. I know of the series and some of its creatures, but my largest piece of knowledge is about how an elderly Japanese actress wanted to play IX before she died. To say I walked int...   read

Review: NieR: Automata

You don't hear many people talk about the Drakengard or NieR series. It's pretty well-known in some circles, but others are mostly just aware of it through silly boar riding and fishing .gifs. I think that'll change with NieR...   read
