Ruiner is shaping up to be one hell of a ride

Nothing is more exciting than when a game blows away your expectations. In today’s age of instant information and ease of access, it seems to happen less and less. However every once in awhile a game sneaks up and really surprises me. When I fired up RUINER from developer Reikon Games, I was expecting your standard twin-stick shooter with some great action and chaotic gameplay, what I experi...[Read More]

Project Octopath Traveler is a classic RPG in the making

Earlier this year, before the release of the Switch, Nintendo and Square Enix teased everyone with a snippet of information about a new Switch exclusive RPG from the venerable game developer. The only thing I could take away at the time was the game had an interesting 16-bit era aesthetic and one weird name: Project Octopath Traveler. What kind of name is that? Turns out it might not be much of a ...[Read More]

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is Waterworld meets Arcanum, and that’s a good thing.

Personally, the word “steampunk” is enough to take my breath away and solidify my interest in any game, but that’s not even all this title has to offer! Forget about California sliding into the ocean, they’ve gone and submerged New York! Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is a top-down isometric RPG that will be released on October 4 of this year by Coin Operated Games, and is intended as a departure ...[Read More]

And now fans new and old will get a chance to experience the remastered version. We got to check out a brief glimpse of what’s in store during my time at PAX.

A Destiny Veteran’s Impressions of the Destiny 2 Beta

Firstly, I have to admit to being a Destiny player from Closed beta, I’ve logged hundreds of hours in the game. And so I approached Destiny 2 with a bit of a jaded eye. I was pleasantly surprised at what was to come, this being my first chance to play Bungie’s much-anticipated sequel. For me playing D2 was a bit of a quantum shift I was switching from playing D1 on Ps4 to my gaming PC....[Read More]

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet takes the series in a whole new direction

For just about as long as the Sword Art Online anime series has existed, so has the steady stream of SAO video games also flowed like a river. It’s a very natural combination though. An anime show about people stuck in a VR MMO; it would be an insult if there wasn’t a library of games based off it. But up until this point, most have tried to emulate the MMO experience in more of a WoW/Action RPG h...[Read More]
