Battle Chef Brigade is speeding through stretch goals

I have high hopes for Trinket Studios’ Battle Chef Brigade, and it isn’t because I’d like to see an indie studio from my city get all kinds of funding. This looks like a genuinely unique, gaming experience. It’s as though Studio Ghibli decided to make a 2D iron chef game where part of the challenge more »

Chariot Price: $14.99 System(s): PS4 and Xbox One Release Date: October 1, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Frima Studio (Frima Studio) ESRB Rating: “Everyone” for Mild fantasy violence Chariot is one of those games that surprises out of nowhere.

Forbidden Romance quotes should be samplers

I’m a sucker for ridiculous otome games – that is, dating sims for women. The sillier they are, the better.
