Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time Review

Chamber of Time is slow-paced, looks a bit drab and it can be repetitive and awkward to play. In a way, it’s much like Akko herself. She’s far from perfect but spunky and open-hearted, making her irresistibly disarming. There’s a strong positive vibe going on that rubs on you, and it helps in overcoming the game’s shortcomings.

Dragon's Crown Pro Review

Side-scrolling action-RPG Dragon’s Crown, which was released for PS3 and Vita six years ago, may be widely known for its risqué character design. Obscured behind Sorceress’s ridiculously sized and autonomously swaying bosom is actually a very competent example of its genre - far better than any unfortunately superficial values might suggest. It was just a matter of time when PlayStation remaster-train arrived in Hydeland and picked up Dragon’s Crown for a ride for the new generation of players.

Zwei: The Arges Adventure Review

After releasing Nihon Falcom’s action JRPG Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection to the western audience late last year, XSEED is back with another iteration of Zwei. The funny thing is, Zwei: The Arges Adventure is actually the first game in the two-part series and dates way back to 2001 in Japan for home computers.

Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection Review

Despite being a sequel of sorts, it really is a stand-alone game, set in the same world as Zwei! (never released outside Japan) but with new heroes and storyline. Bearing the developer’s usual setup of immediacy and user-friendliness and boasting lovely looks bathing in color and character, the game is like a perfect antidote to the gloom of most of the hit titles surfacing for the holiday season.

Card Hunter

I love this game. It absolutely harkens back to my own time as a tabletop gamer, with both D&D and CCGs, and its story treats those memories like they're a treasure, rather than a punchline. Will you enjoy it as much if you don't have those memories to draw on? Well, if you like fun, and can stomach learning something new, then I don't see how you get out of this without having at least a little. It may not grab everyone the way it has me, but then it doesn't have to for you to see its charm. And hell, it's.. mostly free. So you have no excuse.
