Robert’s Pick: Both Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni and Cave Story+ are tempting titles, but ones I have played on other systems. Seeking a new experience, my pick this week is God Wars: Future Past. With a storyline that incorporates ancient Japanese folklore, turn-based tactics with characters capable or learning hundreds of skill moves, and creature design from Sawaki Takeyasu, a veteran of Devil May Cry and Okami, God Wars has undeniable potential.

  1. If the PC version of The King of Fighters XIV comes in under $30, I might consider it.

  2. Enraged Hamster

    Someone should combine Laser Cops with Kindergarten. That might be fun.

  3. I played Cave Story+ before but I’m picking up for Switch this week. That Skyrim trend.

  4. I don’t even know what Final Fantasy XIV is all about.

  5. Mighty Gunvolt Burst for $10 seems decent. Not earth-shaking, but decent.

  6. I ope you review Mighty Gunvolt Burst.

  7. Robert-san, I really hope you review God Wars: Future Past

  8. Bought Mighty Gunvolt Burst. It’s not like the first game, very much like Mega Man. But good still.
