    Dragon's Dogma

    Like a lump of coal, ugly and dark, Dragon's Dogma will one day become a diamond.

    Oft compared to open-world games like those of the Elder Scrolls series, or the visceral combat of Dark Souls, a more apt comparison would be to say this is the conceit of Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus. This,... Read Full Review
