Phantom Brave – Review | Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 1

Back when I was a strapping young lad, I was a huge fan of Nippon Ichi Software. Whilst I knew nobody who appreciated their games, they crafted some of the best turn-based strategy games to ever grace the humble PS2. Masterpieces like Disgaea, La Pucelle Tactics, and Makai Kingdom showed off the company’s desire to […]

Soul Nomad – Review | Prinny Presents NIS Classics Vol. 1

I’ve played an awful lot of NIS titles. They were pivotal parts of my childhood and, yeah, I played practically all of them. Soul Nomad & The World Eaters is one of the very few games that I haven’t dabbled in (until now), so I was quite excited to see what interesting systems and mechanics […]

I do think there are some interesting ideas all the same. The battle system is unlike most that I’ve seen and the hand-drawn aesthetic is beautiful. […]

Giraffe and Annika – Review | My Niece’s Debut

Giraffe and Annika has been on the market for several months now. I received my code around release and I quickly finished half of the game. I fully intended to finish it and write a review in the following days, but that all changed. As I continued, I noticed it appealed to the younger demographic […]
