It an action, adventure rpg where you are tasked with restoring color to the world while…

Far Cry 6 Features – OCD Players Beware

Far Cry 6 has been one of my favourite games this year - I've enjoyed the story, how it unfolds, and the cool people you meet along the way. These are all staples of the Far Cry franchise, and most open world Ubisoft franchises for that matter. But the more I play Far Cry 6, the more I became concerned. "I'm not clearing the map! WHY AM I NOT CLEARING THE MAP!"

Far Cry 6 Features – Using a Smart Phone in Far Cry 6

Is 2021, and Far Cry 6 is helping us do what we already do in real life all the time - play on our phones, a lot. In previous Far Cry games, we often would use a set of binoculars to scout out enemy bases, tagging enemies, and more. That made a ton of sense, and was enjoyable enough of an experience. While I'm happy that the new tagging system highlights the weaknesses of enemies, I'm having a bit of difficulty extending my belief to tagging using a camera on a cell phone.

Far Cry 6 Features – Enemy Weaknesses Key to Success

A group of writers here at GamesReviews have been playing through Far Cry 6 so we can provide you tons of content right ahead of launch. While some writers are plowing through the main story in order to bring you reviews, I'm taking a more relaxed and investigative approach, including diving deep into some of Far Cry 6's new features.

Astria Ascending is a 2D side-scrolling jrpg. It was developed with the help of several Final Fantasy veterans. That fact alone adds a lot of hype to this indie rpg! We just got a review code for the game yesterday and here are our first thoughts on Astria Ascending for the Nintendo Switch. Astria Ascending is a turn-based jrpg. The combat is about what you’d expect: pick Attack, guard, special attack, etc from a menu. You can also switch characters…

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 Review

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is one of those games that gets whispered about amongst diehard Action RPG fans. Nobody in the mainstream knows it, but those that do KNOW IT. It has an epic story built around Chinese mythology and history, decent combat and pretty enough graphics as to not be off-putting. It has occasionally hilarious translation and story elements that come from nowhere and disappear as quickly. There are long walks with few saves. And yet it’s still time…
