  • Nioh

    By taking some of the key elements of the Dark Souls franchise, Nioh took that difficult action-RPG Dark Souls popularized and threw it into an era of Japan where samurai and ninja’s were common, while still managing to propagate on the dark-fantasy style. While Nioh definitely isn’t an easy game, the difficulty and the awesome setting that surrounds the game makes it a Dark Souls-like that is incredibly difficult to even consider a clone. The PS4 version  was released in February 2017. (PS4, PC)

(PS4, Xbox One)
  • Yakuza Kiwami

    Sega had been working on the Yakuza franchise for some time at this point and it had been almost 10 years since the original had been released, so it made following the story quite difficult, up until they remastered the first Yakuza game in HD.

  • Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

    Blades of the Shogun is a stealth-oriented real-time tactics game that is set in the time period of feudal Japan, where the biggest concern would be an arrow to the chest, rather than a bullet. At the strategist for the team, you have to make each decision count for every turn. With a much heavier focus on melee encounters and combat, it makes the combat that much more difficult and intriguing as you work your way towards a story that has to be experienced to be truly appreciate. (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  • 07-2017
  • Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

    The Zodiac Age is the remastered version of Final Fantasy XII for the latest console generation and refines on the key elements of the story for the game, a major part of any Final Fantasy game, especially in this one as well.

  • Prey

    Prey was a series many people thought we’d never see again, but the developers managed to bring back this great FPS franchise in a sci-fi setting that wouldn’t be amiss in one of the Aliens movies and only makes the game that much more intriguing.
