Review: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening had a profound impact on me growing up. Although I was already familiar with more traditional JRPGs like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy at that point (and had played the first two Zelda games), Lin...

Who's that new mystery Pokemon? It's Sirfetch'd!

Game Freak has been teasing a new Pokémon reveal for today, and I think everyone wins with this one. It's called "Sirfetch’d," a clear take on the "Sir" knighting nomenclature and the OG creature Farfetch'd. The new take r...

Feast your eyes upon these new Sakura Wars trailers

Sakura Wars is a series I only have a passing familiarity with. Beyond characters from it appearing in the crossover game Project X Zone and its sequel, just one title from the core franchise ever made it to the west many yea...

Review in Progress: Greedfall

You know, I've never played a Spiders game. I've been interested in a couple, like Technomancer, but never got around to actually buying or playing them. They've mostly received lukewarm reviews with plenty of uses of the word "jank." Greed...

Review: Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

With Monster Hunter: World last year, the adrenaline-pumping series finally managed to break through for me, and – given what a colossal sales success the game has become for Capcom – plenty of other would-be players. It's not ...

Pokemon Sword and Shield have a Curry Dex to fill out

Game Freak knows me too well. If there's a list of things to accumulate in a video game, I'm going to do my darnedest to fill it out, whether it's catching every last Pokémon in Galar or cooking up a storm. Today's Nintendo Direct f...

Xenoblade Chronicles is being remastered for Switch

The original Xenoblade Chronicles, the one that launched on Wii back in 2012, will eventually hit Nintendo's newest console. The beloved action RPG is being remastered for Switch. At least, we're left to assume it's a remaster. During its ...

Final Fantasy VIII still rules and I don't care who knows it

9/9/99 was a pretty special day. I distinctly remember going to my local EBX (an offshoot of Electronics Boutique, a GameStop division) to not only pick up a Dreamcast, but a copy of Final Fantasy VIII. And the thing is, while a new system ...

Here's the Cyberpunk 2077 E3 gameplay demo... sort of

For the second year in a row, CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the heaviest hitters at E3. And, also for the second year in a row, the gameplay from the demo wasn't revealed to the public. It stayed behind closed doors, a my...

Review: Oninaki

Tokyo RPG Factory has a track record. Now I can't really use a qualifier in that statement, because it's really hard to actually track! I dug I Am Setsuna, but a lot of people didn't. I thought Lost Sphear was alright, and some folks s...
