EverQuest Online Adventures: The One Sony Let Go.
(AfroGamers.com) It’s safe to say that the heyday for MMORPGs on PC was the late-1990s to the early-2000s. During the early part of that period, Sony’s EverQuest ran the scene until World of Warcraft came along at the beginning of the 2000s. Unless you owned a Dreamcast and had internet, there were no MMORPGs on console. There was just Phantasy Star Online on a Sega console.
Then early 2003 rolled... [Read more of this review]
Old School RPG Corner: Dark Cloud.
(AfroGamers.com) The PlayStation 2 had numerous RPGs that kind of went under the radar. If you were serious about your RPGs, you didn’t miss many—although there are some you would’ve been better off missing. There is one RPG that was somewhat unique for its time when compared to the turn-based company it kept; Level-5’s Dark Cloud from 2000.
Dark Cloud: The “Oh yeah! I remember that... [Read more of this review]
Remembering the Ouya.
(AfroGamers.com) The year is 2012 and a microconsole is making a ton of buzz on Kickstarter. It picked up millions of dollars and had all of the makings to be something big—at least in video and on paper. The Ouya was released in the spring of 2013 and was poised to be a big deal. It fizzled out almost as quickly as it launched.
What Was Right With Ouya
Where to begin? If you loved your Android... [Read more of this review]
The Trail Is More Fun Than You’d Expect.
(AfroGamers.com) Mobile games can be hit or miss—more on the miss side. For every one game that really stands out, you’ll run into several clones. Of those clones maybe two would have potential. This is especially true of the recent influx of battle royal games and has always been true of mobile MMORPGs. Man, those MMORPGs are always so cluttered on screen. Then you have something like The Trail.

My Experience At 2019 Sonocon.
Note: Prior to the name of this event being changed to SonoCon, the previous name of the event for the past two years was “Gump City Con” actually drew some confusion amongst some people because when people think of “Gump”, they think about the film “Forrest Gump” which was actually shot here in Alabama which led to the organizers changing the name to SonoCon which means...

Character Spotlight: Cyclops.
(AfroGamers.com) Marvel’s The X-Men have been around for a long time—almost 56 years to be exact. In that time, the franchise has had several series, retcons, and teams. Each of these were interesting in their own way and is definitely the best soap opera in comics.
Xavier’s relationships with the empress of the Shi’ar empire, Lilandra and geneticist, Moira. The love triangle with Cyclops,... [Read more of this review]
My Top Dragon Ball Battles.
(AfroGamers.com) Dragon Ball is the gold standard for martial arts anime and shonen in general. While better animated series with stronger storylines and character development have come along (Naruto, Hunter x Hunter), Dragon Ball set the pace. In the almost decades that the series has been around, there have been numerous fights and some pivotal battles. Here are my favorite fights from 35 years... [Read more of this review]

Hyper Heroes: Breathing Life into Mobile RPGs.
(AfroGamers.com) Hyper Heroes is a mobile RPG on Android and iOS. Yes, there are plenty of those on mobile and many can be bad—which is weird since it’s hard to mess up a straightforward RPG. Sometimes, they have a great concept then mangle that concept with bad or boring mechanics and a barrage of ads. Let’s not forget the grinding involved.
A Breath of Fresh Air for Mobile Games
Then you have... [Read more of this review]
Manga Review: I Am A Hero.
(AfroGamers.com) When it comes to manga, zombie stuff and martial arts are my go-to genres. At the moment, I haven’t found a series that mixes both but I did find a solid series. Kengo Hanagawa’s I Am A Hero delivers the goods on the survival end of zombie horror.
I Am A Hero
The series focuses on Hideo Suzuki, a mangaka working for a small publisher. He’s pretty much a shut in who talks to... [Read more of this review]
