13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Review

I'm kind of a fan of Vanillaware games since the PS2. They have a nice art style and all of them have been different. Maybe just Dragon's Crown was a bit of a disappointment because of the strange anatomy in the character designs but, the co-op was fun at least. Not many games with co-op these days. Anyway, I saw their latest game 13...

Astral Chain Review

Astral Chain looked good and the Switch has been short on new original JRPGs instead of just ports so I thought I'd give it try. Not to mention it's made by the same developers as Persona 5 although other people might have wanted it because it's supposed ot be closer to Nier;Automata. I wasn't quite sure what I was in for because I didnt...


MarZ: Tactical Base Defense Review

I didn't have much looking for a new RTS game but while I was browsing Steam for one I came across an indie game named "MarZ: Tactical Base Defence". Both the screenshots and the name just shouted another tower defence game. I pretty much consider tower defence games to be a casual game you'd just play on a mobile - quick short sessions...
