Love is in the air!
02.10.18 - 9:52 PM

Valentine's day is often considered to be an annoying holiday, but it is a great one to let all those you love in your life know how you feel about them. So share your love with them and everyone else, because the world can always use more love. RPGs need love too, and that's why we are here! This week we had news stories from Mike Salbato, a review from Tris Mendoza, a preview from Bob Richardson, and a new feature from Nicholas Ransbottom.


Story by Mike Salbato

I am not going to lie, both of these new trailers are very cool. But, once again, we are only getting a release window of 2018. This is something we have seen a number of times; the good news is that they will announce a release date at E3 this year. So I hope we finally see something concrete for a change because Kingdom Hearts III is looking pretty cool.

One game that has been slipping under the radar with all the fantastic recent releases is Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. A remaster of an already excellent game is just grounds for something amazing. But don't take my word for it, check out Tris Mendoza's review and make sure to congratulate Tris on his promotion to full review editor!

Monster Hunter: World is taking the real world by storm with its incredible and addictive gameplay. For a lot of people, though, Monster Hunter: World can feel like a daunting task to get into. With so much to learn and so very little to guide you, it can feel overwhelming. Thankfully, Nicholas Ransbottom has brought us his interview with Woulfe Condra, co-creator of Adopt-A-Hunter, to help guide you in taking down even the most vicious monsters together.

Pillars of Eternity is a vast and fantastic game that can suck you in for hours and never let go. But if you have managed to finish everything Pillars of Eternity has to offer, then fear not, because the sequel Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is right around the corner. Bob Richardson got some time with a beta to give you his impressions in case you can't wait that long.

Our Managing Editor Mike Salbato recently got to attend a very cool NISA press event yesterday that had a bunch of fresh news and previews of future NISA releases. One of these was the recently announced The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2, and today we can show you a brand new trailer for it. There was a lot more at the event which Mike will be sharing on the site soon.
