October is the most mainstream month isometric RPGs have seen in years.

Not to be outdone, November will push back with the open world juggernaut, Fallout 4. So, we’re going to do what any self-respecting gamer would do: compare the hell out of them.Posted Oct 23, 2015 by Christopher Coke

A Skeptic's Return to Destiny

General -  Column

The original Destiny was a letdown.

Bioware, Accessible Doesn’t Have to Mean Easy

General -  Column

Accessibility: It seems to be the mantra for AAA RPGs these days. By itself, there’s no problem with that, being accessible is something all games should aspire to so more players can enjoy them. The problem is, developers too often think more accessibility should mean less difficulty. Looking through my library of games, one studio stood out more than any other: Bioware. Outside of DLC, when was the last time a core Bioware game challenged you?Posted Aug 14, 2015 by Christopher Coke

This year, Pillars of Eternity. As far back as July 2013, Shadowrun Returns kicked things off on the tactical RPG front. It’s the best thing that could have happened to modern RPGs and why we have crowdfunding to thank. Here’s why.Posted Aug 7, 2015 by Christopher Coke
