Surprise! Anime characters and Hitler dominate Tower of Fantasy’s create-a-character library

Someone was bound to do it I guess. Tower of Fantasy has been popping off in a major way since its launch last week, with the character creation standing out as a major plus for the waves of oncoming gamers exploring the world. Some of the more creatively-minded out there have even uploaded their customised looks to the in-game character lobby, which lets you dress up as well-known characters like Sasuke from Naruto, Jellal from Fairy Tail, and… Adolf Hiter. As it stands right now, Hitler (we could be nice and say Charlie Chaplin) is among some of the most…

DNF Duel Review: An absurd fighter that pulls no punches

Certainly one of the wildest fighting games we’ve seen in a while. It’s a chaotic moment in the world of fighting games right now. These games, typically at their best when played next to some other tryhard at a weekly tournament at some bar with cheap pints, or at a packed, sweltering hotel conference room filled with PS4s and a few CRTVs buzzing away desperate for death, were ripped away from those environments. The Fighting games genre was hit hard by the pandemic, and only now as DNF Duel releases is the scene returning to something approaching business as usual….

Eastward is an RPG that’s both terribly good and terribly bad at ending things

One minute I want to finish Eastward and be done with it. The next, I don’t want it to end. It’s a charming RPG that has me lurch between anger and glee at an alarming rate. Right now, I’m not sure how I feel about it. I think I’m nearing its end, which I’m relieved about! But also quite sad? My weird relationship with this game has taught me the value of an ending, though. It doesn’t know how to end things, but it’s also remarkably good at it when it does. Read more
