I have hit a wall with Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! No, not a progression wall forcing me to grind my way through poorly designed stages just to move on. I hit that hours ago. The wall I am currently at the base of is the “care wa...

Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...
