At this rate, I'm starting to feel like Final Fantasy XV will outlive us all. The post-release episodes centered on Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis were really just the beginning for 2016's ever-expanding RPG adventure. Square Enix has alread...

Defender's Quest is just as easy to love on consoles

It might look unassuming at first glance, but Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is not so secretly one of the best tower defense titles in recent years. It's way up there. The game tells a fairly compelling story, it's mechanically ...

Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Review: Secret of Mana (Remake)

Secret of Mana memories have been popping up like daises and inserting themselves into my life. I have so many memories of replaying this classic, from solo runs to two-player marathons at my friend's beach house, to full-on three-player pa...

Review in Progress: Kingdom Come: Deliverance

When Kingdom Come: Deliverance is at its best, I'm lost in the most detailed forest I've ever seen in a video game, low on food, drinking alcohol for nourishment, all so I can reach the next town to sell my wares...because the last town hat...

The Bug Fables demo took me 17 years to the past

Crowdfunded games are a gamble. We’ve seen the likes of Mighty No. 9 go from extreme anticipation to an underwhelming launch. We've even seen games that fail to release altogether. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for ...

I was skeptical of Dragon Quest Builders when it was first announced, but Square Enix's take on the sandbox genre ended up hitting the mark. It's not just Minecraft through the lens of Dragon Quest as some initially feared -- there's a prop...
