Having achieved his lifelong dream of becoming hokage and starting a family, Naruto has passed on the reigns of his long-running media franchise to his son, Boruto.

Our First Steps Into A World of Guns With Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet (PS4, 2018)

“Anyone who loves guns can’t be all that bad,” one NPC proclaimed to me in the opening hour of my journey into Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The comment understandably took me by surprise, as going into the game, I had very little idea of what to expect. As it turns out, what I should have expected was guns, and a lot of them.

Games Preview: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom: Cute as a Button and Twice as Shiny

It’s not often that a game leaves me open mouthed in awe at its beauty — games like Horizon Zero Dawn and The Witcher III have elicited a smaller, less impressive inhale, but Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom absolutely took my breath away.

Games Review: .hack//G.U. The Last Recode (PS4, 2017): System Upgrade Complete

Before I begin my review, I’d like to discuss a bit of my history with the .hack franchise. When I first discovered manga, the first volume that I ever read was .hack//G.U.+, an adaptation of the original .hack//G.U. video game trilogy.
