I must admit, thinking about being out in the open ocean scares me, but that doesn’t mean I need to be afraid of a game that is aiming to take the player on a pirate adventure. Fireblade Software is the development team behind the naval combat and ship management adventure game Abandon Ship. The game features

I’ve been playing Owlboy on the Nintendo Switch for a majority of this past week and I find it to be such an incredibly charming game. From very early on, the music, aesthetic, and the game’s sympathetic protagonist Otus draws you into the world that it has created and fills you with a sense of wonder. What I did

Developer Long Hat House’s Dandara is just a conceptually pleasing game. Rethinking the standard Metroid-type game from the ground up, Dandara approaches a near-saturated genre with new takes that genuinely flip gameplay on its head. Dandara is without a doubt a merger of old and new ideas. On one point of the spectrum, the game offers the standard (and still equally

Every so often, an RPG releases that is regarded highly by all who play it, but sadly some of those titles have trouble reaching a wider audience. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series falls perfectly into this category with the recent release of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II on PC. Joining

On the surface, Crossing Souls makes quite the impression with its thoroughly polished rendition of the 80’s that mixes pixel art from a bygone era, vibes of a Saturday morning cartoon, and a story reminiscent of a Spielberg summer blockbuster. Crossing Souls undeniably time-travels and captures the period meticulously and truthfully, packing a serious dosage

The series has been ported to every platform imaginable since then and has sold millions, a monumental feat for what started as a passion project from an indie developer. Unfortunately, when something becomes as successful as Minecraft, a plethora of

Last year, Survios (the same team behind one of my personal favorite VR shooters) Raw Data announced its new project. To be perfectly honest, I was initially disappointed with the announcement — mainly because the studio decided to focus on building a game that was designed for fast-paced locomotion movement. With the closed beta finally over,

Last year, I reviewed Pokémon Silver when it was re-released on 3DS. While I did feel that the game has dated in some areas, I also believed that the Generation II games were when the Pokémon series cemented itself as a mechanically solid series that was here to stay. That being said, Pokémon Crystal was surprisingly absent from the initial

Furi is everything I could ask for in a pocket-sized boss rush. It’s challenging, dynamic, beautiful in both audio and visual facets, and most importantly, challenging; there’s no fluff to be found. That matters a lot especially when you’re on the go. Having had Furi in my backpack the past couple of days has turned

My first introduction to the SaGa franchise was SaGa Frontier 2 on PlayStation, and to this day I consider it one of my all-time favorite RPGs. However, with having limited to no internet access at the time, I was unaware of most titles that came before it; more specifically, the Romancing SaGa trilogy on Super Famicom.
