Zwei: The Arges Adventure Review

It's great that English players can finally get their hands on this game, but it's hard to say it is anything special or interesting.

Demon Gaze II Review

Streamlining facets of the original Demon Gaze lead its sequel to be a little less frustrating but a little more bland.

A fine remake of a good game is still good, but it also feels unnecessary.

While it boasts a deep job and skill system, God Wars falls short of being an easily recommended Strategy RPG

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Review

Embracing a different take on Fire Emblem, Shadows of Valentia changes things up a bit to provide a weird but fresh experience for the franchise.

Disgaea 2 PC Review
Disgaea 2 PC Review

Another Disgaea makes its way to PC, and it's a solid SPRG - if you don't mind flat characters and a boring storyline.

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review

A cute action RPG / Platformer that harkenes back to the PS1/N64 era, Gurumin is a fun adventure with charming characters that doesn't overstay its welcome.

7th Dragon III Code: VFD Review

A straightforward dungeon crawler that may captivate those who can't get enough of the genre, but is a little too streamlined to be interesting.
