Posted: Wed, 17 Jul 20:00:00
Category: Highlight
A lot of people will point to the Super Nintendo or the PS1 as the “Golden Era” of RPGs, and there’s certainly something to that. But the PS4 is full of so many excellent RPGs, and they run the gamut between big budget, AAA titles, smaller AA titles, and indie darlings that took the genre… Read More »

 Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn
Posted: Wed, 17 Jul 12:00:00
Category: Highlight
Sieges are prolonged military campaigns rooting out a city or a settlement’s inhabitants and defenders. Fortunately, soulslite action RPG Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn‘s campaign isn’t an excruciatingly long siege, despite its title. It offers players an entertaining gameplay loop that manages not to overstay its welcome. I’m mightily impressed by Flintlock’s surprisingly meaty primary… Read More »

Category: Highlight
We are just rats in a maze. I turned 32 years old during my playthrough of System Shock’s remake for consoles. I am just old enough, I think, to remember a time when first-person shooters shared far more in common with mazes than gymnasiums or amusement park rides. Yellow cards, blue cards, green cards, and… Read More »

Category: Highlight, Podcast, Rhythm Encounter
The indie RPG scene is ever expanding, and while indie RPG music makes its way into many a Rhythm Encounter episode, we wanted to make an episode just about celebrating the music from indie devs. We enjoyed it so much, we may even make this a regularly recurring topic!

 Arslan: The Warriors of Legend
Posted: Sat, 13 Jul 12:00:00
Category: Highlight
I’m the first to admit that my knowledge of Musuo/Warriors games is severely limited. I’ve only played three spin-off titles from the celebrated hack-and-slash subgenre. The first two were Fire Emblem Warriors and Touken Ranbu Warriors, which I immensely enjoyed. However, it was in the third Musuo title I played that I started to understand the potential appeal of… Read More »
