Review: Shantae and the Seven Sirens

Oh Shantae, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... As I've noted before, rarely do video games make me literally smile while I'm playing, but WayForward's Shantae series has me grinning like a durn fool. I'm besotted with these advent...

Review: Shinsekai: Into the Depths
