Little Dragon's Cafe Review

While Little Dragon’s Cafe isn’t a Harvest Moon game whatsoever, nor is it even a farming simulation, it’s a definite throwback to the days where Wada was at the helm.

Cosmic Star Heroine Review

Cosmic Star Heroine takes a lot of inspiration from classic RPG titles such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy, but does it do enough to set itself apart from the games it aspires to be like?

Octopath Traveler Review

Octopath Traveler is an absolute delight, and is a must-have for anyone fond of retro-infused JRPGs in particular. Its lack of linearity in both a narrative and gameplay perspective may not be everyone's cup of tea, but should be fantastic for those wanting something a bit different than the norm.

Hand of Fate 2 Review

In order to see if Hand of Fate 2 is the right game for you, it is important to detail what exactly the game does in order to create a continuously challenging, but ultimately fair system that allows for a rogue-like sense of progression mixed with long-term rewards.

West of Loathing Review

West of Loathing has what many might consider to be a glaring barrier of entry as it's a Role-playing game about stick figures. However, peeling back what little aesthetic flourish exists reveals a title that is absolutely delightful and utterly bizarre.

Tanzia Review

Tanzia hearkens back to the days of old-school, open world adventure/RPG games. A trip down nostalgia lane is never a bad thing. Or could it be?

Shining Resonance Refrain Review

While it doesn't necessarily boast many modern conveniences found in more recent JRPGs, Shining Resonance Refrain offers players an engaging story full of interesting characters in a world that’s as fun to play as it is pleasant to look at.

Squids Odyssey Review

If you would have told me a few weeks ago that I'd now be invested in helping a pack of squids of varying shapes and sizes thwart an oozy corruption hellbent on destroying their homeland I would have thought that you were crazy. Heck, I still think I’m crazy for what I’m about to say about this game.

The Banner Saga 2 Review

In Banner Saga 2, the creators manage to keep all the aspects that made me fall in love with the first game while tweaking enough elements to make this title feel even more polished, challenging, and beautiful.

The Lost Child Review

The most recent RPG published by NIS America sets you into the world of a green-eared occult journalist in a modern-ish Japan.

The Banner Saga 1 Review

The Banner Saga offers an expertly crafted narrative buffered by fun combat and addictively painful player decisions that could not be more worth your time.

Saturday Morning RPG Review

All in all, Saturday Morning RPG provides a memorable jaunt down RPG paths with solid role-playing mechanics that are as effective as they are zany.

Fantasy Hero ~ Unsigned Legacy Review

Fantasy Hero ~ Unsigned Legacy is a title that I have been curious about since its arrival back in January. Now, I’m here to report my findings and let you know if it is really as bad as the general populace makes it out to be.

Eternal Edge Review

Eternal Edge is a new action adventure RPG from indie developer Righteous Weasel Games that presents lofty concepts mixed with a heavy dose of familiar genre conventions.

Asdivine Hearts Review

The general consensus is that Asdivine Hearts is one of the best KEMCO RPGs released to date. Today, I’ll be diving in to see if that is actually the case.

Super Daryl Deluxe Review

Super Daryl Deluxe succeeds on a multitude of levels and in many ways, could change how many indies approach RPG passion projects in the future.

Devious Dungeon Review

Touting a new release on a home console as a mobile port is a sure fire way to make many gamers groan in disbelief. t’s not always good to judge a book by its cover though, so I decided to take a chance on Devious Dungeon to see if it goes beyond the staple mobile game shticks.

Penny-Punching Princess Review

If you are a fan of cash and bribery mixed with chaotic battles against hordes of enemies, traps and maze-like dungeons, then keep reading.

Blossom Tales Review

Through its fun, witty writing and its grounded, sometimes challenging gameplay, Blossom Tales offers an adventure you honestly don't want to miss out on.

The Longest Five Minutes Review

Amnesia is among the most common RPG tropes today. In that aspect alone, The Longest Five Minutes is highly successful, putting a fresh spin on an otherwise overused plot point.

Earthlock Review

Earthlock does, for the most part, succeed in going beyond its nostalgically-inspired roots.

Revenant Saga Review

Revenant Saga is an RPG that attempts to present many interesting concepts but struggles to get out of its own way to accomplish them in majorly successful ways.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles Review

It's hard to not appreciate the value that the games appear to give, especially given the price point. But the million dollar question is this: Is Mercenaries Saga Chronicles actually worth playing?

Dragon Quest Builders Review

The Dragon Quest / Minecraft hodgepodge is something you'd probably never dream of asking for, or even expect to work. But I am so glad that it is a thing.
