Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists Ateliers Of The New World PC Game Review

Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists Ateliers Of The New World is a brand new game by Koei Tecmo Games to celebrate 20 years of the series. Wow has it been that long already? I still remember the first 2 games way back when. And you know what else I remember, a little-known Nintnedo DS offshoot game in the Atelier Series called Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island which came out about 10 years ago. So why Am I mentioning Atelier Annie? Because, if you've ever played it, then you know what to expect from Nelke & The Legendary Alchemists. Both games are unlike any of the rest of the Atelier Games, and instead put you in a role of managing a city and completing missions to advance. Nelke has some really negative reviews - at least on Steam, but I purchased Nelke anyways,...

Princess Maker 5 Review

Title: Princess Maker 5 Platform: PC Release Date: May 2018 Developer: Gainax Publisher: CFK Genre: Raising Sim/ Life Sim / Dating Sim Geeky: 3/5 Sweetie: 5/5 Overall: 61/80 76% C "Good Game for Girls" Gameplay: 8/10 This is the last Princess Maker game in the series, aside from some online and mobile spin offs that were released later. As such, you can expect that the gameplay is much more advanced than previous Princess Maker games. Princess Maker 5 brings back the adventure system, previously seen in Princess Maker 2, allowing you to fight in simplistic rpg battles and search for treasure. It does not unlock until later in the game. It is also the first time that you can select a female character to be the parent - Although if you play as a female, you cannot

Heart of Crown Boardgame and PC Videogame Review

Update: 12/21/2017 - The developers of the PC version of Heart of Crown reached out to me via email and wanted to provide support for some of the issues I encountered, as well as to let me know about new features that are underway, such as full screen mode (currently in the beta client), and a tournament that will take place next year to celebrate the international release of Heart of Crown. They also wanted to let me know that there are (text based) chat rooms available on the Discord server (and I've adjusted the score for community based on that feedback). Overall, it is encouraging to see an active Dev team who seem to really care about improving the game and connecting with the community. :) I hope they continue to work on polishing up the PC version of the game, but as I said already

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Raises the Bar

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Raises the Bar Guest Post by Michael Lan at Anime Zeal When you think of MMORPGs, it’s no surprise for the big three to come to mind: World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, and Final Fantasy XIV. Up until recently, I would say these three have been pretty evenly matched with the exception of Guild Wars 2 not seeing as much popularity as the other two. But with the release of Stormblood, I would say Final Fantasy XIV has taken the lead! If you haven’t seen the official launch trailer yet, check it out here! Stormblood is the second major expansion after Heavensward. The first installment of Final Fantasy XIV in 2010 ended up as a failure as it drastically failed to meet expectations. Since then, the next three installments and expansions, A Realm ...

Sonicomi comes to life with fully animated and expressive movements. Unlike other visual novels which show only static images, the graphics in Sonicomi definitely do impress. There are multiple game modes and tons of achievements to unlock as well. Like most visual nov

Cat President – a More Purrfect Union – Visual Novel PC Game Review

I received this game for free in exchange for writing an honest review. I played through Frisky's route and received his Normal Ending. Title: Cat President Genre: Otome Visual Novel Platform: PC Developer: Oh a Rock! Studios Where to Buy: http://store.steampowered.com/app/474980 Geeky: 3/5 - On the fence with this score... Production values are fairly low and it shows, also not much "gameplay" as is the nature of visual novels. But it does earn a few points for geeky internet "meme-like" humor. Sweetie: 5/5 - High marks for being an otome game (a game with a female protagonist) and for having cute cats. Also has pretty good character development and surprisingly good writing. Concept: 8/10 Cat President is an otome game in which you get to help one of 6...

Talos Principle Game Review

Title: Talos Principle Release Date: 2014 Genre: Puzzle Solving Developer: Croteam Publisher: Devolver Digital Platform: PC, Mac, or Linux, also available on PS4 and Android Where to Buy:   Geeky: 5/5  Sweetie: 4/5  Concept: 8/10 Many people have compared this game to Myst, but not me. In my opinion, this game is much closer to Portal than it will ever be to Myst. The nature of the puzzles, at least in the first many, many hours of the game bears a striking resemblance to the gameplay in Portal. It's also these early hours in which I feel the game begins to fall apart, because the puzzles become so much the "same" throughout the first several "worlds" that you explore. However, looking past the often tedious gameplay, this game has a truly amazing story, especially
