What’s Good, WordPress Games Blogging Fam?

Last night I was playing catch-up with my WordPress feed and found a handful of articles I wanted to share with the rest of you. The WordPress gaming community has been incredibly rad and I’m proud to be a part of such a welcoming, altruistic group of individuals who share this common interest of ours.

Chatting with fellow WordPress games bloggers via Twitter or our open-community Discord channel (shout out to Support Class!) has helped overcome writer’s block, kept the creative juices flowing, and, quite simply, provided hours of equally meaningful and absurd conversation.

Hopefully, you not only find the content hidden behind these links enjoyable but maybe you’ll find a few new blogs to follow in the process!

[REVIEW] White Day: A Labyrinth Named School

White Day: A Labyrinth Named School
Developer: Sonnori
Publisher: PQube
Available on: PS4 (reviewed), Steam
Release Date: August 22, 2017
Price: $29.99 USD

When White Day: A Labyrinth Named School released on PC in Korea way back in 2001, it was widely considered one of the scariest horror games of all time.

LTTP REVIEW – Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Developed by: PlatinumGames
Publisher: Konami
Available on: Xbox 360, PS3 (reviewed), PC

Developed by PlatinumGames Inc. and released in 2013, Revengeance is not only a made-up portmanteau¬†but a stylish action game that has more in common with Platinum’s Bayonetta series than Metal Gear’s stealth-focused past entries. The spin-off takes place four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and once again sees the return of former child soldier Raiden in the leading role. However, he’s seemingly given up the life of peppering flesh with bullets in favor of slicing and dicing robots and people alike into little wet chunks. He also has a robot dog, which kinda rules.

The Most Important RPG in Console History Celebrates its 20th Anniversary Today

While the SNES arguably had better releases in the Final Fantasy series, it was the seventh entry on the original PlayStation that truly brought the RPG genre into the eyes of the mainstream. Final Fantasy VII’s multi-disc spanning epic was a smashing success in 1997, selling nearly 10 million copies worldwide, and changed the gaming industry forever.
