Paladin Dream JRPG

Paladin Dream—Review


Developed by HitherYon Games and published by Meridian4, Paladin Dreams is an indie RPG released on August 12, 2021 for PC via steam. It utilizes the RPG Maker engine which may put some people off but it has original elements as well. This includes well-done hymnal songs performed by Mioune along with an original soundtrack that adds to the ambiance of the medieval fantasy setting. The game also features pieces of unique art as well. The game is only available to play in English.

Rise of the Third Power

Rise of the Third Power — Review


I'll have to admit, I almost read the title as "Rise of the Third Reich" which would be pretty bad if it wasn't related to it at all. However, in this case, the story is based loosely on the political landscape of Europe in the late 1930s and the tinder that that would lead to an all-out war according to the developers. Nevertheless, "reich" is German for "power" so it ends up being that way anyway albeit not intentionally.

Ruined King

My somewhat late Top 5 favorite turn-based games of 2021.


Note: These games are listed in non-sequential order in terms of ranking i.e. not ranked by number or order. Also, it may be obvious but all games had to be released in 2021. There were some hard choices to make for this list but I felt these titles would be decent to experience for the turn-based fan. The five games selected were four RPGs and one SRPG.

Armed Emeth Nintendo Switch

Armed Emeth / Armed & Golem -Review


Armed & Golem or Armed Emeth, as it's name was changed for Western audiences, is a traditional RPG albeit with slightly different mechanics than a regular RPG, brought to you by Kemco. Kemco is a company that I feel you either hate them or love them as they tend to present visually to more newcomers yet have mechanics that generally favor a classic audience. Most of the time you know what you are getting with them which is to say an older style of graphic mostly orthodox RPG with anime style graphics that span most systems from mobile to current generation usually at a low price.

MEtal Slug Tactics

My Top 5 most anticipated Turn-Based RPG of Q1 2022.


The year 2022 seems to have a good slew of games coming out that aren't just limited to turn-based. But as you know, this is site is specialized so without going over those, allow me to introduce some of my most anticipated turn-based games with some hopefuls on the list that don't have a specific date but are warranted to be on in my opinion.
