I was one of the first to download, but something about Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis just hasn’t clicked.
Some of you will know that I’m a Final Fantasy 7 superfan. This remake-but-not was seemingly made for me and me alone. And yet in translation to a gacha mobile game, it has lost some of its soul.
The gang are all there, and they look great. And the story beats are pretty well represented too, even if you’re racing through…

Have you ever been lost in a song so deeply that you’re transported into another world, a preferred nature spot, or just find peace within the colors and shapes of a painting? Faerie Afterlight has done this for me. Created by the developers, Clay Game Studios, this Indonesian influenced game, with lovely music, folk art and beautiful visuals transported me into what might be the coziest and most chill Metroidvania I have played since both Ori games.

A few years ago, we received some of Playmobil’s 1.2.3 lineup of toys. These toys were aimed at children ages 1 – 3, and our son had a blast using the small water park we received. The 1.2.3 sets tend to be a big chunkier than standard Playmobil, and include characters with less articulation and accessories.
As they are toys aimed at young children, these are by no means negatives about the toys! In fact, the 1.2.3 lineup from Playmobil…

A few months ago I attended an expo in Toronto that was primarily for distributors to connect with stores for purchasing products. As a lone media member invited, I was given the same access as these stores received, even going behind the curtain to look at a few games. After looking at Disney Dixit I was given a brief look at an upcoming game called Spellbook. Honestly, while the presentation and the explanation of the game was top notch, the…

,I’ve made no secret about my love for Final Fantasy VII. The remake was a long-awaited treasure, and this week’s trailer for its sequel, Rebirth, made me pre-order immediately. It will be a masterpiece.
And while I’m mostly saying that as an excited fan, it’s undeniable that the trailer showed a game that I didn’t think was possible. The scope and scale of Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth is something far in excess of what I expected.
Suddenly the “coming on…

Game engines aren’t supposed to cause major problems for their users. Usually when they do, it’s accidental. This week Unity bucked that trend.
And while there is no shortage of column space around this very issue, it’s worth another look. It could very easily impact on the way we all play our games old and new.
So as a quick recap: Unity decided to change their deal with developers. They would charge a set fee of $0.20 for every download…

A few months ago, I remember seeing the Kickstarter campaign for Robot Quest Arena, and as much as I wanted to back the project, I was swamped in board game work already and wasn't sure I would find time to get it onto the table after it arrived. The Kickstarter finally delivered this month, and when I saw it was an option for us to review, I reached out hopeful that we could take this game for a spin after all. Although this isn't an impression article or a review, I can tell you after a few plays that I'm disappointed I didn't pull the trigger on the Kickstarter version, which comes with a LOT more content in the box. To that end, join me as I unbox the Retail Version of Robot Quest Arena.
