Review: Loop8: Summer Of Gods - Feels More Like A Laborious Summer Job

There are plenty of roguelike games on Nintendo Switch, but Loop8: Summer of Gods takes an interesting twist to the formula: a classic turn-based Japanese RPG that has roguelike elements. More specifically, the game is similar to something like Persona.

However, Loop8 implements neither Persona’s excellent school-life pacing nor the fun “just one more run” feeling of games like Hades or Neon White. What results is a long-winded and repetitive adventure that makes you want to put the controller down and walk away.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the most creative games ever

Features that made Breath of the Wild revolutionary, such as its presentation and exploration, are still present in its new sequel Tears of the Kingdom, but with new additions that make the game so much more fun and exciting to play. Link’s new powers encourage more freedom to tackle puzzles in creative ways and the quality of life improvements in Tears of the Kingdom make the overall experience more streamlined. It’s one of the best games of 2023, if not the best game of the year so far.

The Mega Man Battle Network esports scene is thriving in 2023

Imagine that your Nintendo Switch didn’t have the ability to connect online and that the competitive game you’re currently playing only supported local multiplayer. It’s a little hard to picture in 2023, right? That’s what Mega Man Battle Network fans had to deal with during the early 2000s. If you wanted to have a battle with your friend during Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance days, they’d have to be within your immediate vicinity and have a Link Cable available to connect two GBAs.

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp review: revisiting an old friend

As I play Advance Wars 1+2: Reboot Camp, I flash back to playing the first Advance Wars game on my Game Boy Advance during my trips on the school bus as a kid. Being the child that I was, I didn’t really have a grasp on its turn-based strategy gameplay and would often lose during battles. The only other game I had played at that point in my life was Pokémon, so Advance Wars was a completely foreign experience. I hopelessly sent wave after wave of puny infantry units to try and take out a large f

‘Resident Evil 4 Remake’ Honors the Original: Video Game Review

“Resident Evil 4” was first released on the Nintendo GameCube back in 2005. Since then, it’s been hailed as one of the best video games of all time. Its goofy dialogue and action-based gameplay made for an entertaining adventure with government agent Leon S. Kennedy as he rescues the president’s kidnapped daughter, Ashley, from a mysterious cult.

Almost 20 years later, Capcom has now remade “Resident Evil 4” from the ground up. When it was first announced, I thought to myself, “This game holds

Love HBO’s 'The Last of Us'? Here’s how to play all of the games

HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us video game has been incredibly popular and critically acclaimed ever since it first aired in January 2023. In fact, the show has been such a hit that it helped drive an increase in sales in the UK for The Last of Us Part 1 on PS5 by 238% and the PS4 remaster by 322%. It’s safe to say that Joel and Ellie’s emotional and action-packed apocalypse adventures are resonating with people.

The most underrated dungeon-crawler of the decade is finally available in the Americas

Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society is a game that feels like it may never end.

Even after rolling credits 50 hours into the experience, it asks you to start over. But instead of dumping you into a traditional New Game Plus, a completely new storyline emerges with brand-new characters and even more complex mechanics that fundamentally change how you navigate dungeons and take down the monsters inside.

Inside the Art of 'Breaking' Video Games

How fast can a game be beaten — and how many tricks can a player use as they do it? With “game breaking,” users look for loopholes in a game’s design and use them to get past difficult enemies. Different players have different approaches: Speedrunners, for example, find the fastest way to finish, while “map clippers” twist “mechanics” — the rules by which the digital universe is bound — to see what they can get away with before it becomes a problem for developers, or crashes the game completely.

Fire Emblem Engage offers the series’ best gameplay yet — even if the story disappoints

The Fire Emblem series is now as popular as ever. When Fire Emblem: Awakening launched for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, the game single-handedly saved the franchise from cancellation due to its overwhelming popularity. It expanded on the relationship simulation elements popularized by games like the Persona series while retaining the same chess-like tactical combat, and was later built on with well-received entries like Fire Emblem: Fates and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
