Coming from developer Spearhead Games, Omensight blends action and mystery in the style of a dark, fantasy fairy tale, though not in the ways that players might initially expect.

For those who aren’t familiar, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is something of a black sheep regarding themes and characters to the other SMT games; the protagonists are battle-hardened adults—researchers and soldiers—who have a specific goal and a clear path towards it.

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Shin Megami Tensei series ever since I picked up Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne out of a bargain bin when I was a little Emily Jr. The complex themes, the DnD-style morality structure, the mythological focus, the phallic chariot monsters… all of them had me coming back to

While I am not typically the biggest fan of the RTS genre, Nintendo’s more puzzle-focused take on the strategy — Pikmin — has always stuck with me. Micromanaging cute little alien creatures, each with unique abilities, clicked with me more than “pure” RTS games, and I still consider it one of Nintendo’s most underrated series. Unfortunately, we
