Sekiro has the unfortunate disposition of being a mere side project by FromSoftware. Earlier this year, I gave Sekiro: Shadow’s Die Twice a glowing review, and even a few months later, still do the occasional run through. Sekiro is perhaps the best quote un-quote “side project” a game developer has […]

Sword Art Online  (SAO)  is one of the most popular animes, especially in fairly recent times. The series had a resurgence earlier this year and late last year due to the first bit of the Alicization arc airing. And although the resurgence was noticeable, SAO has always maintained a steady […]
