Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls comes to PC today

Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls is a translated PC port of the Japanese game released in 2009. Sir-Tech's original Wizardry games were among those that defined the entire RPG genre, particularly those concerned with sending a party into dungeons to kill everything. In 1991 they inspired a separate branch of spin-offs in Japan that continued long after the North American series petered out. This entry…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Octopath Traveler review

As I climbed the steps toward the final, final boss of Octopath Traveler, I knew I was done for. Over the past 80-odd hours, I'd battled my way through this exquisite 3D pixel diorama the only way I knew how: with my three favourite and strongest characters doing most of the heavy-lifting. The fourth and final character in my party was whoever out of the…

Octopath Traveler wanders from Switch to PC in June

Following a string of rumours and leaks, Square Enix have confirmed that yup, they intend to release Octopath Traveler on PC in June. The retro-styled JRPG, made in collaboration with Acquire, debuted on Nintendo Switch in July 2018 and our Katharine has muttered encouragingly about it ever since. She's quite insistent upon getting to review the PC release, which I take as an encouraging sign…

Way Of The Samurai 3 On The Road Towards PC

I feel like the Way of the Samurai 3 trailer is quite telling about what the game's priorities are. It's a 2008 open-world action game, originally for PS3 and Xbox 360, which should be gracing the PC with its presence before the end of the year, following in the steps of its sequel Way of the Samurai 4. If editing and screen time mean anything…

Duff Up And Derobe Otaku Vampires In Akiba’s Trip Demo

You probably already know whether you want to buy an RPG where a boy runs around Tokyo's otaku zone Akihabara killing vampires by beating them up until their clothes fall off and they evaporate. Ask yourself: "Do I want buy an RPG where a boy runs around Tokyo's otaku zone Akihabara killing vampires by beating them up until their clothes fall off and they evaporate?"For…

The RPG Scrollbars: The Choices Of A Samurai

You know, I'm not entirely sure that Way of the Samurai 4 [official site] is the most authentic historical game. Not sure what makes me think that. Possibly the British ambassador to Japan being a tiny girl in a Lolita dress. Maybe the stock dialogue option "I'm allowed to kill you if I want to." At a pinch, maybe the fact that the British Royal…

Ronin Data: Way Of The Samurai 4 Out July 23rd

I hear that Way of the Samurai 4 [official site] is an odd game, the sort that is wobbly in places but still wins some people over simply because it's not quite like anything else out there. Set in a fictional Japanese port town, it focuses on the conflict between pro- and anti-government forces, and the pesky foreigners (us lot) who are stationed in the…

Marvelous: Ys VI And Akiba’s Trip Coming To PC

Another two Japanese action-RPGs are coming our way from PlayStations via Xseed Games, the publisher announced last week, and they're certainly a curious pairing.Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim [official site] is from the long-running, well-received series Xseed have been trickling onto PC for a while now. Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed [official site], on the other hand, is about freeing Tokyo's otaku district Akihabara…

Sandbox Samurai: Way of the Samurai 4 Ported To PC

"Okay it's really wonky and you might hate it at first BUT...!" is how Cara described Deadly Premonition to me and gosh, well that turned out to be one of my favourite games. So I'm interested by seeing people say "Okay it's really wonky and you might hate it at first BUT...!" about Way of the Samurai 4. Publishers Ghostlight yesterday announced they're porting Japanese…
