Fairune is a deconstruction of RPGs

It was $2.99. It’s difficult to resist a game at that price. Especially since it only cost a little more than a 3DS theme. For that price, Fairune was mine. It looked aesthetically pleasing and for $3, it’s difficult to complain about a simple timesink. Though, more can be ascribed to Fairune. It is a more »

There’s something about Lisa

If you’ll remember back to the last time you heard the name Lisa mentioned here on GamerTell, you probably remember the dancing, bearded prostitute. Yep, those completely bizarre trailers I shared with you have finally led to something tangible. December 15, 2014 marked the official release of Lisa: The Painful RPG. The mysterious project had more »

Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN: PS4 vs. PS3

While our review of Guilty Gear Xrd: SIGN spends a bit more time in the lab, I’ve taken it upon myself to toss out a few thoughts here and there on the game. Little things, you know? There’s always so much to take in with a new Guilty Gear, and this brand-spanking new entry lays more »

Bet you never thought you’d see Steins;Gate on PS3, Vita

I never in a million years would have expected this announcement, but I guess this is the way games are going. Steins;Gate, one of the most famous visual novels of our time, is coming to the PS3 and Vita. By which I don’t mean Japan’s getting it. No, that’s something that of course would happen. more »

What’s going on with Winged Cloud’s The Guardian Spell? (Update 2)

If you enjoy otome games, you’re bound to look into independent projects. It’s the best way to find visual novel dating sims in English, and trolling websites searching for official translations, fan translations, and original projects is the best way to find something new to play. Unfortunately, people who backed Winged Cloud’s The Guardian Spell more »

Wait for a sale for Xeodrifter

I have good news and bad news about Renegade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The good news is, it’s a lot better than the abysmal Planet Crashers it released in 2012. The bad news is, it isn’t as great as the now iconic and multiplatform Mutant Mudds. Yes, Xeodrifter is one of “those” games. It’s middling. It has more »

Elegy for a Dead World: Ghost Writer

Elegy for a Dead World is a video game with the most accurately self-descriptive title since 2009’s Bikini Samurai Squad. The opening scene introduces you as an astronaut jetting through the vacuum of space in a suit with a bubble helmet that only shows your profile in silhouette. You float past the debris of a destroyed spaceship more »

Get out there and Don’t Starve Together

Here’s an Early Access surprise. Don’t Starve Together has launched on Steam. What better way to enjoy the holidays and boost those social links with friends and family than by facing the wilderness and unknown as a team. Nothing, if you ask me. Though, not everyone should consider buying Don’t Starve Together, now that it’s more »

Be cautiously optimistic about Starbound Winter Update

Starbound broke my heart. I know, it was Early Access and things happen, but there were certain expectations. They weren’t met, and we went months without official updates. It wasn’t until December that we finally heard word about progress and started seeing new, unstable releases. Now, there’s a Starbound Winter Update trailer of what should more »
