Dragon Quest XI Is the Best JRPG of the Current Games Generation: Here’s Why

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the long-running Dragon Quest franchise.

What I Want From The Inevitable Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Game

Marvel's Spider-Man is a success even before it launched thanks to fanboy and game journalism hype dating back to the last few E3s. But you know what? The final product earns its merit badge. I bought my copy, finished it, and thought it was a great first step in making Spider-Man games again. God bless Marvel for giving this IP to Sony and Insomn...

Cyberpunk Bartending Action N1RV Ann-A Announced, Due 2020

Calling all fans of VA-11 Hall-A, the pretty awesome cyberpunk visual novel for PC that focuses on bartending, awesome chatter with corgis and sex dolls, and awesome neo retro-esque music (at least in my humble opinion).

It’s Always Nice To See Game Developers Supporting One Another

I'm at a loss at where to file this up under, to be honest. All I'm doing is sharing the fact that the games industry is a small world and that we're doing all we can to work together despite the obvious rivalries. Case in point, the latest Insomniac Games tweet, fresh out of releasing this year's best comic book game, talks about featuring the la...
