Review: Eiyu*Senki - The World Conquest (PC)

When a Japanese adult game's naughty parts are cut from the console release, there are some instances where it retains its charm. This shows that the product can stand on its own two feet. After I turned Zipang into the strongest natio...

XCOM 2's Alien Hunters DLC is all about that boss, that boss

Despite running like poo on my more-than-capable PC, I enjoyed XCOM 2 more than Nic did, and have been eagerly awaiting new content, whether it was new missions, weapons, or just plain better optimization. Looks like next week we'll get all...

Review: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

I can count on the Disgaea series. While NIS always seems to be trying to recreate the magic of the initial release, every game manages to capture the essence of SRPGs in a charming and robust manner. The story isn't as impressive as the la...
