  • Excerpt: A couple years ago, a game simply called Project Exile for the GBA caught gamers' attention. After a console change and a new name, Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is now about to be released for the Nintendo DS. I had the chance to visit Studio Archcraft and play its first RPG a few days ago.

  • Conclusion: Black Sigil is a game made to deliberately give an old school experience. However, that experience is mired in tedium, never-ending combat, a story which is both mediocre and convoluted, and several huge glitches. If that can't dissuade you from buying the game, then maybe you'll enjoy it. Maybe...

  • Excerpt: Studio Archcraft, the first time developer behind the new Nintendo DS RPG Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled, deserves nothing less than an A for effort. A large scale RPG like this one is a mammoth task to undertake, and for a brand new developer, what they've accomplished here is nothing short of...

There is a strong desire to recapture those warm fuzzy feelings of rose-colored nostalgia that gamers around my age felt back when we were tweens or teens playing...

  • Excerpt: “Good things come to those who wait.” It’s a saying that is, in the world of video games, often false. Three years ago, a game known only as Project Exile caught some gamers’ eyes with its “old school” graphics. The game came out after an absurd amount of delays.
