Review: South Park: The Fractured but Whole

In one of this season's episodes of South Park, Randy Marsh remarks "You have to overdo it in today's society. You can't be nuanced and subtle anymore or else critics go 'Wow, what was the point of that?'" It's a slice of meta-observation a...

Review: Divinity: Original Sin 2

It feels weird to have a consistent stream of "CRPGs" today. I thought Pillars of Eternity was pretty great, though I never got around to finishing it or delving into its expansion. Tyranny was a wonderful surprise and is my go-to reco...

Review: Final Fantasy IX

Final Fantasy is a series that shaped my taste in games in an astounding way growing up. Believe it or not, young Rich wasn't exactly a social butterfly. Once I made it to high school I would carve out my own group of friends with similar i...

Ys remains in the shadows even to this day, but I think it holds higher promise for a great new release than even those Final Fantasy But I think it has this success because it remains there, just giving us the best they can without having to rush
