Feature | Rating The E3 2019 Conferences

The “look at what shit we have” portion of E3 2019 has been passed, and we’re left both empty and satisfied by the proceedings – much like the after affects of going to a Chinese all-you-can-eat restaurant. But, how were the showings themselves? It’s time for my rating (read: berating) of the E3 2019 Conferences!

Feature| RTG’s E3 2019 Wish List

E3, otherwise known as Gamer Christmas™, is upon us again along with all the hype, leaks, and cringeworthy conferences. So, I’ve been thinking about what I would want to come out of the showings this year, discounting EA because who really gives a flying fuck about them?

Review | Octopath Traveler (NSW)

I love traditional JRPGs, and I mean I love them a lot, so it was unlikely that I was going to go into Octopath Traveler with an overly open mind.

Review | Blade Strangers (NSW)

It feels like all I played last year were crossover titles, of varying levels of success and narrative insanity. No matter how many absurd narratives I played though, I was still really excited for Nicalis’ Blade Strangers, if only because Gunvolt and Shovel Knight were on the roster. However, how did the accessible fighting game shape up on release?
