Persona 4 Golden Review

Persona 4 Golden appeals to two specific groups: those with a Playstation Vita looking for a solid port and those looking for an excuse to buy a Vita despite the handheld’s somewhat bare lineup. A glorified tribute to one of the Playstation 2’s last great JRPGs, Persona 4 Golden tweaks and extends Persona 4’s mechanics and story. For the most part, the changes are welcome. However, despite Persona 4 Golden’s careful treatment of its base material, its changes are somewhat shallow. Persona 4 Golden’s storyline is a slightly extended version of Persona 4. For those unfamiliar with Persona 4, the game goes through one year of a normal high school student (you). Moving to the sleepy, rural town of Inaba to live with your uncle and cousin, your arrival is shadowed by the shocking and grisly murder of an announcer woman recently outed for an...

Dragonborn is a microcosmic manifestation of Skyrim, strengths and weaknesses alike. An unrepentant love letter to the Bloodmoon expansion pack of Morrowind, Dragonborn brings you back to Solstheim, the Nord colony besieged by a malevolent, unknown force.

Through a moderately paced series of quests, Dragonborn takes you from the deep cavernous undergrounds of Solstheim to the R’lyeh-esque depths of Apocrypha, chasing the taunts of your ancient predecessor and droll groans of a lumbering demigod....

Primordia Review

Imagine a world where humans have wiped themselves out through war, and that they have been gone for so long, that their creations, robots, have built a society of their own and are now making the same mistakes as their masters. Sounds familiar? At first, the concept for Primordia is common ground, but it quickly grows beyond such cliché into a touching story about self discovery, important decisions and their consequences. Primordia begins in the middle of the desert, inside what looks to be an abandoned ship. A robot named Horatio and his companion, a flying dome called Crispin live there. They are junk pickers and are content to making their living finding scrap in the wasteland, when suddenly they are attacked by a hulking robot who takes their only power source away. Forced to look for alternatives, the pair is out to explore the...
