Yakuza Kiwami | Review

Game Reviewed By: John Bridgman “Kiwami means extreme!” the tutorial explains, and that’s a good way, to sum up Yakuza Kiwami, the remake of Sega’s first entry in its open-world Yakuza series. It keeps the series’ proud tradition of bombastic martial arts combat, gritty organized crime drama, and ridiculous diversions. An immediate warning to prospective players is in order – Yakuza Kiwami has depictions of violence and aggressive harassment of women, both implied and on-screen, so keep that...

Fan Made Remake Of Descent In The Works

Modder MadMaxBLD definitely deserves kudos for beginning work on bringing back a great game of yesteryear, Descent. This is a series that I would love to see a return of, and Max’s mod/remake is a beautiful example of why.
