Review – Chocobo GP

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Reviews, Switch

Final Fantasy is a franchise well-suited to spin-offs, so it’s no surprise that it received the kart racer Chocobo Racing way back in 1999 for the PlayStation. Surprisingly, despite being a solid concept, that game was the only time it was attempted (unreleased 3DS games notwithstanding). Thankfully that’s changed with…

Review – The Artful Escape

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Shovel Knight has plenty of game appearances under his earth encrusted belt, yet it’s only now that he’s stepping out of the shadow of that original Kickstarter. Yes, the scope of Yacht Club Games’ inaugural effort grew incredibly, but we’ve finally stepped onto untrodden soil for the studio. This partnership…

Ten years is a noteworthy milestone for any series, but when that series teeters right on the line between hope and despair it makes that success all the more exciting. Danganronpa had humble beginnings back on the PSP, with players overseas gravitating to Let’s Plays and fan translations, but it…
