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,...

The Best Upcoming & New Release 2018 PC Games for Girls

Back in the 90s I barely played PC Games, because so few existed that appealed to my tastes. There were exceptions of course, Torment, Fallout 1 and 2, Baulder's Gate, Icewind Dale, King's Quest (and other Sierra titles), Ever 17 (and anything else by Hirameki International), Petz, Black and White, Creatures, Graduation 95, and a handful of other gems that weren't available on my consoles. But largely, console gaming was the highlight of my childhood. That's where all the anime games or JRPGs or story rich games were, especially in the 16 and 32 bit eras, which still remain my favorite gaming period of all time. Genesis, Sega CD, SNES, Saturn, PS1, PS2, and Dreamcast, the majority of my favorite games, still to this day, lived on one of those great consoles. But nowadays, I barely pl...

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

Third-person Action RPG *Anima: Gate of Memories* due June 3 on Steam (Windows/Linux), PS4 & Xbox One, North American PS4 launch to take place June 7

The folks at Badland Games just emailed me their press release for their upcoming title: Anima: Gate of Memories which is based on a series of books. It is being developed by a small team and heavily involving the author of the novels. This looks to be a really fun, story-rich RPG with multiple endings, choice-based dialogue system, beautiful graphics, and fun combat system. I'm seeing if I can get a key so I can share some more details and possibly stream or upload some videos for you guys - but until then, enjoy the press release and official trailer below!

LiEat Releases Tomorrow on Steam for just $2.99

LiEat is a little indie JRPG-inspired trilogy of short games. The entire trilogy can be completed in just 2 or 3 hours. The game was originally Freeware made with a program called WOLF RPG Editor. I'm not sure, but am assuming that some enhancements were made for the Steam Release as is typically the case for free to play games which later get redone for steam. The story follows a con-artist trying to sell information in various cities and a dragon-girl named Efi who has the ability to turn lies into living things and then eat them. There are multiple endings and turn based combat when Efi encounters various lies who have turned into monsters. Synopsis from Steam "Welcome to the heart-moving world of LiEat, a fascinating trilogy of JRPGs that captured the minds of thousands. Follow the s...

Clannad Available on Steam In English For a Price

Clannad just went live on steam about 24 hours ago. If you order by December 1st, this game can be yours for the "low" scoff price of $42.99 after which it will return to it's full price of $49.99 - Get it here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/324160/ I ordered it. (Mostly because I won some paypal money last week, so I only had to put about 9 dollars with it, to get it, otherwise I wouldve waited til after the holidays, so many other things need my money and attention right now.) I've played the fan translated version years ago.... It's one of my favorite novels ever. But let's check the math here..... Clannad (English version) had a very successful kickstarter campaign. They estimated they could make this project happen for $140,000. They raised almost $600,000 during their kicksta

Always Sometimes Monsters Review

This game is one that you either love, or you hate. I love it; but there are a lot of people who give this game low and negative reviews. Your mileage may vary. It is not a happy sunshiney game. And since it is a visual novel, you're not going to do much besides read, play a few mini games, and make some choices to reach a few different endings. It's a very personal game, and you come to care a lot about the characters, which makes some (most) of the endings pretty gut-wrenching which enrages a lot of people. The one thing I would like to point out, 99% of the negative reviews on steam, mention the scene where you're moving boxes from conveyor belts and into a truck. YOU CAN STOP AT ANY TIME. People get bored here, and never play the game any further, or they bitch about this one particul

Humble Bundle Begins Monthly Subscription Service for Exclusive Game Bundles

Humble Bundle announced today a new subscription service to get games that have never been in their weekly and regular humble bundles. The service costs $12 and the first bundle will be released on November 6th. Each subsequent bundle will be delivered via email to subscribers on the first friday of each month. You are able to sign up now to secure the first bundle. You can cancel at any time or continue your subscription to receive more bundles. I'm torn on this one. I would love to sign up, but the fact that you can't see what games you're getting makes it much more risky than just purchasing their regular bundles. This is also much more costly than the typical bundles which average $2 or $3 dollars. I don't see any information about if there's a "theme" to the bundle, at least that ...

Her Story – Multiple Personalities Or Twins? My Theory, and Supporting Evidence

Her story is an awesome "game" - though it's not really a game in the traditional sense. You watch some video clips and pick up on key words or phrases in those clips to find more video clips to watch. The premise is that a woman has murdered her husband, and you have to figure out her motive. While "playing" the game, you interview the woman over the course of several days. Each clip is only a few seconds long; and they're never in chronological order, or make much sense out of context. It's up to you to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and form your own conclusion. You learn pretty quickly; that there are 2 women being interviewed, Hannah, and Eve. But are Hannah and Eve; really two people? Or are they one person with a Dissociative Identity disorder? When I started this game; ...
