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 […]

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Coming To Playstation 4 In 2018

Shadows of Adam Review

Platforms: Windows (reviewed), Mac, and Linux It’s been tough to find the time to go back to some of my favorite JRPG from my youth. While a single playthrough of Chrono Trigger can be done in less than 20 hours, I know myself well enough that not hitting the New Game Plus option to get the multiple […]
