Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct will feature multiple Fire Emblem titles

Without a doubt, the big surprise of last week's Nintendo Switch reveal event for me was Fire Emblem Warriors. I'm so into the game conceptually that even its bare-bones teaser trailer was enough to get my mind racing just thinking about th...   read

Back in 2012 (or 2010 if you're in Japan), Malicious kind of came and went. I knew a few people who were really into it given the relative drought of action games these days (at least, relative to the PS2 and beginning of the PS3 eras), but...   read
