Meet Valkyria: Azure Revolution's Five Grave Sinners

While I am still somewhat bummer that the Valkyria Chronicles spinoff, Valkyria: Azure Revolution, is more action-RPG than strategy RPG, well, there is no "but" or "while." I'm still bummed. A combination of an update of Sega's official gam...   read

Atlas Reactor is shaping up to be something great

We’re drowning in a sea of MOBAs. Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, the list goes on and on and on. So it’s really nice to see Trion, developer of Rift and Trove, try something slightly different with their ...   read

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...   read

Not all of Total War: Warhammer's DLC will cost money
