Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed), Playstation Vita (reviewed), and Windows Grinding in RPG’s is so entrenched in the genre that, at this point, it almost feels like near impossible for it to divorce itself from it. Hell, it’s such a part of the genre that a subgenre of them relishes in the grind, letting those of […]

Drifting Lands – See You Space Cowboy

Drifting Lands is a side-scrolling shooter after my heart. It takes a side-scrolling shooter and adds in RPG and rogue-like elements and that should keep me coming back far longer than pattern recognition does. I stepped into it a few days ago and found myself backing away from it before I even got a chance […]

Apple iOS 11 Is Going To Kill Some Games

When Games and Junk first started, putting classic video games on the iPhone seemed absurd. The screen on the iPhone 4 seemed too small to be able to properly enjoy Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even the original Final Fantasy. I could only imagine playing these inferior ports turning people off them. All it really took to […]

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Coming To Playstation 4 In 2018

It’s been an odd haul for the until-now arcade-only Dissidia Final Fantasy. The fighting game was built on modified Playstation 4 hardware, but it wasn’t until today that Square Enix announced that it will be coming to the Playstation 4 in 2018 as Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (which is somehow not the most unwieldy title in the […]

Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku Now Available

If you’re in the mood for an action RPG with an old school feel and tons of customization, then Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! is right up your alley. Just released today for Playstation 4, Vita, and Windows via Steam platforms, Cladun Returns has a ton of features that got more than a bit of my attention. You […]

Extinction Is Coming (And It Looks A Lot Like Attack On Titan)

Iron Galaxy, the studio behind Dive Kick and Killer Instinct: Season 2, announced their project today. Extinction looks, for all the world, like a take on Attack on Titan‘s formula of giant monsters against humans. I really enjoyed Omega Force’s take on Attack on Titan, but it did have some hangups. Movement while not flinging through the air using the vertical maneuvering gear felt […]

Lost Sphear Is Next Project By Tokyo RPG Factory

Tokyo RPG Factory, the developer behind I Am Setsuna, announced their latest title today, Lost Sphear. Melancholy seems to be the name of the game for Tokyo RPG Factory and Lost Sphear is definitely not looking to buck that trend. It’s story centers around a young man named Kanata who lives in a world that has parts of it, […]

Here’s the news from Natsume directly. “River City: Knights of Justice, known in Japan as Nekketsu Mahou Monogatari, is scheduled to launch as a 3DS e-Shop exclusive this summer. Kunio and […]

We know you like us, so you should like us on Facebook and Twitter as […]

ROWYCO – Interview With Josh “Visager” Brechner

I recently got the chance to review Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King. Going through it, more than a few tracks really stood out, so I tracked down the composer to compliment him on his work. We ended up chatting for a bit and what initially was an article that I thought was as good excuse as […]
