Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

In an era when remakes are about as frequent as brand new games, I think I can be forgiven for initially writing off Atlus and Headlock’s latest release, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. Thinking it yet another JRPG amidst the many, I hadn’t really dug into […]

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are not new games but a reworking or “definitive edition” of the games released last year. While there were plenty of fresh design and gameplay choices for the original Sun and Moon releases, there were parts of it that […]

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

My first ever experience with the Xenoblade series was Chronicles X on the Wii U, which I had tried after hearing the hype of the earlier games. While this game felt like a soulless grind to me, I was told that this was not the […]

Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Joe Madureira is an artist I wasn’t aware of until the Darksiders series. The first Darksiders is a game I hold very dear for plenty of reasons; the Zelda-style dungeons, the Metroidvania exploration, the engaging yet accessible combat, and, of course, Madureira’s art. My attention […]
