    ‘Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs’ Review

  • MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY

    ‘MOBIUS FINAL FANTASY’ Review (PC)

    Despite its ups and downs, the FINAL FANTASY franchise has managed to remain one of the most relevant JRPG series since its beginning in 1987. The transition to the seventh generation of consoles was far from smooth with the poor reception of FINAL FANTASY XIII and the disastrous first...
