Review: Pokemon Shield

Another iteration of Pokémon is upon us, and now it's time for everyone to get really joyous or mad while cute creatures frolic on-screen. With the exception of the second generation (which many still herald as the best to date)...

Review: Pokemon Sword

I don't envy Game Freak. It's a weird statement to make because for more than 20 years, the company has been part owner of one of the most successful video game franchises on the planet. Game Freak has guided Pokémon since ...

The Outer Worlds now has a font size option

The Outer Worlds and Death Stranding are two games I'm very into right now, but they both contain lots of little words that can be a struggle to make out. I can't imagine what it's been like for folks playing on a responsible-human-sized TV...

Review: Disco Elysium

My first foray into the CRPG genre was the original Fallout. Yes, the Bethesda-era debut was called Fallout 3 for a reason, as Interplay and Black Isle Studios had been working their magic alongside of industry titans like (o...

Pillars of Eternity 3 won't happen without major changes

There's still a glimmer of hope for Deep Down

In my imagination, Deep Down was an incredible dungeon-crawling RPG from Capcom. It came out on PlayStation 4 as originally intended, we all played it, we all loved it, the public discourse shifted a few months later to suddenly deem it "ov...

Who's your starter Pokemon in Sword and Shield?

Some people don't like to pick out a starter Pokémon until they know dang well what they're in for further down the evolutionary line. Well, you don't have to wait any longer – a big (and entirely expected) leak happened less t...

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers (Patch 5.1)

Final Fantasy XIV has been killing it this year. Naoki "Yoshi-P" Yoshida and his team have delivered the best story in the entire MMO space (and most of the general RPG plane as well), born out of years of buildup. So what does the fir...

Dandy Dungeon sets its sights on Steam

Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada is certainly the little title that could. After originally launching as a free-to-play app for mobile, where it found a small but thirsty fanbase, it seemed it might be lost to history when it was ...
