For those unacquainted with the series, Touhou can be somewhat of a confusing beast to understand. Ranging from bullet-hells to fighters, RPGs to platformers and now even dungeon-crawlers, it can be a little intimidating to figure out where exactly everything starts and ends in the Touhou Project. For the backstory…
Although we see plenty of games allowing you to play sports such as football, rugby and golf on a regular basis, games which allow you play winter sports are certainly a rarer breed. Steep was originally released by Ubisoft back in 2017, and it has now been given a re-packaged…

Another year, another slew of Warriors games from our pals at Koei Tecmo. If you’ve played any one of the Warriors games in series past, you’ll already get the idea of what you’ll be doing in Warriors Orochi 4, but that doesn’t diminish the pure dumb fun it has to…
