[REVIEW] Black Mirror

Back in 2003, Czech developer Future Games (which began with only five people) released a successful point-and-click horror game entitled The Black Mirror, which followed the cursed bloodline of the Scottish Gordon family.

[REVIEW] Dragon Star Varnir

I don't think any developer or publisher out there churns out the number of quality JRPGs that the folks at Idea Factory and Compile Heart do at such an alarming rate. Though mostly known on the outside for their hilariously endearing Neptunia series, Idea Factory has graced the PS4 with some excellent stand-alone RPGs over … Continue reading [REVIEW] Dragon Star Varnir
