Darkest Dungeon: The Color Of Madness Review

Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness is a fine addition to an already great game that adds perpetual, challenging content fit for veterans.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Review

Explore the Summerset Isles, the long closed-off home of the Altimer, where something sinister is happening to those arriving in the Isles. Summerset is a great second chapter for Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), allowing players to explore, challenge themselves with new and dangerous enemies, and learn about the Psijic Order that had disappeared over 300 years earlier.

Moonlighter Review

Combining the best of adventure and management, Moonlighter is an enjoyable title that is sure to make you smile and get you hooked right away.

Vampyr Review

Vampyr takes the humorously ironic situation of a hematologist-turned-vampire and spins it into a compelling and poetic tragedy with a focus on both combat and decision-making.

Smoke and Sacrifice Review

There’s a lot to like here, from gorgeous graphics to a robust crafting system, but frustrating combat and high difficulty early in the game may drive some players away.

Omensight Review

Omensight is a unique murder mystery that excels in narrative but is hindered by elementary combat.

Dungeon Stars Early Access

Beautiful visuals and frenzied button smashing are all that compensate for this title’s lack of progression, lack of variety in enemies, and lack of difficulty.

ValeGuard Early Access Review

ValeGuard is a great RTS game already, despite it being Early Access. With input from players and the already-planned changes from the studio it will only get better. This is a great play for anyone who enjoys the RTS genre.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Enjoy isometric computer roleplaying at its finest in The Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, the latest title to deliver RPG players a wholly immersive and satisfying experience away from the tabletop.

Open Beta OPN Highlight: Grimmwood

Headup Games and Big Moustache Games announce their cooperation on Grimmwood, a challenging social multiplayer RPG experience, blending elements of survival, roguelike and exploration.

The Swords of Ditto Review

Slash enemies, puzzle through dungeons, and become the hero of legend in The Swords of Ditto, the innovative indie action RPG clothed in Zelda garb.

For the King Review

For the King refuses to hold your hand, making it a real challenge that feels rewarding. Despite its slow combat, there’s a ton of enjoyable content to make it worth your while.

Dead in Vinland Review

Dead in Vinland is a seamless genre-melding of resource management and RPG elements. Visually dazzling and complete with a delightful cast of characters, it’s the latest installment of what could be a successful franchise.

Masters of Anima Review

Puzzle your way through smoothly-textured environments and command an army of Guardians in Masters of Anima, a noteworthy genre-fusing indie.

The Council Episode 1 Review

The Council fails at what it should do best: narrative. Poor voice acting, coupled with mere adequacy on every other level, places this title firmly in the wouldn’t-recommend category.

Lost in the Dungeon Review

The title offers a difficult and tedious challenge for those looking for one. Unfortunately, it isn’t founded on enough complexity to hold your interest for the long term. Lost In The Dungeon has shown its hand, and unfortunately, it doesn’t contain many strategy, polish, or uniqueness cards.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Review

Skyrim VR translates one of the most entertaining RPGs of the previous generation to virtual reality with next to no hiccups along the way. Though there are a few minor irritants, the core experience is ludicrously fun and runs like a dream.

Digital version of Paranoia Authorized, Cyanide Announces

Cyanide and Black Shamrock are fervently loyal to The Computer and therefore proud to announce the development of Paranoia: The Official Video Game, a darkly humorous RPG adapted from the critically acclaimed pen and paper game created by Dan Gelber, Greg Costikyan, and Eric Goldberg.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review

The graphics are realistic, stunning, and immersive. There are some bugs and annoyances, but an upcoming patch will address at least some of those. This is an RPG for those who enjoy a deep, pronounced story with a focus on realism.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Preview

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (PoE2) is the highly-anticipated sequel to what’s considered by many to be one of the best RPGs of all time. An early April release date puts PoE2 three years after its predecessor, which definitely isn’t as long a wait as many notorious sequels (I’m looking at you, Half-Life 3. Lols just kidding; of course there will never be such a thing.), but the pressure is on and expectations are high.
