Eternal Radiance Review

Disclaimer: CD Key was provided for free

Eternal Radiance’s title page is nothing special.  Upon booting the game, players are treated to a lovely, all too familiar JRPG background featuring three options: New Game, Options, Exit.

Many of the long-standing series mechanics would make a return, but without the series’ protagonist, Kiryu, and the classic formula, its future was left in doubt. Continue reading “Yakuza: Like A Dragon Release Date Leaks, Set For November 12th, 2020”
