  • Excerpt: is the surprise success of 2010, and deservedly so. It’s a homebrew game that, when published by what was little more than a fan base, quickly turned the part-time publishers hobby into a full time job. It doesn’t just exceed expectations: it rewrites them.

  • Excerpt: Everyone wants to get their hands in the capitalism pie at some point in their lives. Whether it's dreaming of winning the lottery or making big bucks in stocks, we've all had a fantasy of becoming fabulously wealthy. If money grew on trees, then no one would ever have to work a day in their life, but of course most of us have to submit to the daily grind to make ends meet.

  • Summary: A unique spin off of the Japanese RPG that's half shop management, half dungeon-crawler.
  • Pros: Unique plot. Varied gameplay. Fun bartering mechanic .
  • Cons: Far too chatty. Dungeon crawling is simplistic.

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale (PC) - Review

  • Excerpt: Fans of retro gaming can lament the changing times and wish for the good old days all they want, but if there’s one thing that I think has gotten indisputably better with time it would have to be localizations. Quite a few times this generation I have been able to play games that a few years ago no one would have expected to make it over to the West, and Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale is a shining example of this trend.
