AfroGamer Special: My Experience At The 2019 River Region Comic Con.
(AfroGamers.com) I’ve written several articles now talking about why I absolutely love coming to comic conventions because they have a special type of feel to it for me when it comes to seeing the amazing cosplayers, art drawings, comic books, and especially playing old school and current video games including the competitiveness of video game tournaments such as Dragon Ball Fighterz and Super Smash...

Attack of the Pokeclones: Robotrek.
(AfroGamers.com) One of my favorite kind of RPGs are the Pokemon clones. Games that put the players in some sort of trainer or trainer-adjacent role, tasks you with collecting or catching them all, and training them for battle. It’s a simple formula that works as a gameplay mechanic. Now, if it works in making a rewarding and enjoyable game is an entirely different story.
A game that fits both... [Read more of this review]
Dismiss the Anime Gatekeeper.
(AfroGamers.com) One should be able to enjoy Anime at their leisure without the judgement of what makes a fan. In many Anime circles there seems to be an ongoing discussion about what truly constitutes a fan, or a nerd. It is a shame that fans can’t like what they like without the judgement of anime fans that behave as if they are gatekeepers of amazing genre. Yes, there are certain Anime shows...

What Bothered Me About GTA IV.
(AfroGamers.com) GTA IV was a landmark entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise as it marked that Rockstar had arrived on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The game delivered on a number of innovations to franchise and served as a blueprint for Red Dead Redemption, GTA V, and other GTA clones in general.
With that said, GTA IV wasn’t a perfect game by any means. As a matter of fact, there were two... [Read more of this review]
Outside the Box: Put “Street” In.
(AfroGamers.com) Of sports video games there are three sports I enjoy. Hockey, soccer, and basketball—in that order. I’m no good at basketball games, actually I better at football titles and I don’t really care for them. However, basketball games used to get incredible treatment outside of your usual sports simulation. I’m talking about the arcade treatment. During the early 2000s... [Read more of this review]
Manga Redemption: DBZ.
(AfroGamers.com) “What?! Dragon Ball Z needed redemption?!” Yes and no. I got into DBZ through the anime when it first aired stateside in 1996. I didn’t know what was going on initially because a year prior Goku was just a kid and now he’s living in the woods with a wife and kid. Then his kid gets kidnapped by his brother and—it was just a lot going on in that first episode. But... [Read more of this review]
Unapologetic Naruto Fan.
(AfroGamers.com) I have loves literature of all forms, movies, and animation for as long as I can remember. What makes the stories come alive for us, in part, is the depth by which we are able to connect. Sometimes we can get lost in the story in a way that allows is to access a situation outside of ourselves. Let’s be real life can be hard. Some of us have experienced pain, and hardship from childhood... [Read more of this review]

Langrisser Mobile – My Thoughts.
(AfroGamers.com) Recently, I finally got the chance to play a new RPG game that I’ve been greatly anticipating since it was announced last year called Langrisser Mobile.
Langrisser is a strategy RPG series that’s lasted over 25 years since its first iteration on The Sega Genesis console that was basically the very first ever strategy RPG game that I remember playing back in the day.
Langrisser... [Read more of this review]
3 Must Play Kairosoft Games.
(AfroGamers.com) Kairosoft is one of my favorite mobile game developers. They make simulation games that aren’t stats heavy and really easy to get into. Not only that, but their bag is that they do chill games. Actually, they’re like a mobile-centric version of Natsume or a lot of indie developers that took Natsume’s chill approach after the release of Harvest Moon.
Kairosoft: The Motorhead... [Read more of this review]
Old School RPG Corner: Chrono Trigger.
(AfroGamers.com) In the first installment of Old School RPG Corner, we went into Paladin’s Quest and what made it an RPG worth playing. Now we’ll go into something a little more pleasing on the eyes even today: Chrono Trigger. Oh yes, RPG fans know this title and its typically in the same company as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.
The first thing you’ll notice about... [Read more of this review]
