Reviews keep coming, and they don't stop coming!
10.27.17 - 9:57 PM

I wasn't lying last week that we would have a ton of reviews this week. We aren't even close to being done yet, since we have even more lined up over the next few days. Halloween and more game reviews; couldn't be a better time of the year! This week we have a news story from Chris Gebauer and reviews from Alana Hagues, Bob Richardson, Marcos Gaspar and myself.


Story by Chris Gebauer

Who said the Switch wasn't getting amazing games? Well, no one anymore: not with the amazing line-up it will be getting over the coming months and then adding icing to the cake with Atlus making the next Shin Megami Tensei game a Switch exclusive. So the next major installment of the franchise will be playable wherever you want!

Review by Alana Hagues

So the first Nights of Azure were pretty bad, and somehow the game actually got a sequel a year later. Normally that doesn't bode well when a sequel to a bad game only takes a year to be developed. So is Nights of Azure as bad or worse then the first game in the series? Alana has all the details in her review.

Review by Bob Richardson

It's rare for a title of a game to make so much sense, but life really is strange. The second episode of this prequel to the original Life is Strange series is on its second episode, and the quality of this series just doesn't let up. Bob Richardson's review has everything you need to determine if you want your life to be a bit stranger.

Review by Scott Clay

I said it once, and I'll say it again: Guild Wars 2 is one of the best MMOs ever to be released and its only gotten better over the years. The game has evolved and changed so much since it's release while still feeling familiar, that I can't recommend it enough to new players and to people who may have left the game to come back and give it another try. Path of Fire continues Guild Wars 2's strive to become an even better game. If you want all the specific details of this new expansion, check out my review. Praise Joko!

Review by Marcos Gaspar

Sometimes with music you just got to take a plunge to see if you will like something or not. This is especially true when it comes to video game music since there is so much of it out there. Marcos Gaspar is no stranger to taking this plunge, and once again he dives in deep with his review of the Alice Order OST. If your curious if he liked it or not, you're going to have to read it.

And that's a wrap for this week. Be sure to check back on the front page for all your RPG news and reviews.
