For being the third entry in a series of survival games, Escape from Chernobyl is surprisingly rough.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the August 9 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 8th, 2018

It seems like every two weeks, we can expect some new and exciting things to come to Knights Chronicle. In the last update, there were some nice quality of life features added to the game, but aside from a couple new heroes, not anything huge to shake the game up too much.

This upcoming update, which should hit within the next 24 hours, promises much more than that. Balance changes to heroes, a whole new game mode, and–of course–some more heroes to gush over. See below for more details:

Vista Golf Rivals is a more exciting golfing experience, but it has the same problems as Vista Golf.

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvP characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 2nd, 2018

We’re continuing our pseudo-tier list for Knights Chronicle by listing our picks of the best heroes to have on your team in the Arena.

Again, because the criteria for what makes a hero so great in Knights Chronicle can be extremely situational, we’ve simply given our top three picks for best heroes by type that will generally serve you well in the Arena. See our picks below:

Pocket City review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 31st, 2018
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: PREMIUM BUT NOT PERFECT
It’s nice to have a city builder that’s not a free-to-play game, but Pocket City still has some issues.

Knights Chronicle guide - Everything you need to know about the July 26 update

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2018

It's only been about a month since Knights Chronicle released and we're about to see our third huge update. The 1.1 release brought us the top tier attacker Morrigan along with some much-requested moves to make the game friendlier for free players, and the update that dropped just a week later added things like Haspiel Assault and the Taiyo Advent dungeon.

This latest update isn't quite out at the time of this writing, but it promises quite a few more goodies for Knights Chronicle players. See below for what some of these things might be:

Full Metal Jackpot review

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: GUNS
There are some shaky mechanics here, but Full Metal Jackpot has such an amazing premise that it's worth experiencing.

Knights Chronicle guide - The best PvE characters

Posted by Campbell Bird on July 23rd, 2018

Everyone loves a good tier list, but there aren’t any great ones out there for Knights Chronicle. This isn’t just because no one bothered to make one though. It’s actually because heroes in Knights Chronicle may be valuable in one aspect of the game when they aren’t in another.

In an effort to build some semblance of a quality tier list for Knights Chronicle, you’d have to break down top heroes for each aspect of the game as well as sort them by the kind of hero they are, which is exactly what this list (the first of many) sets out to do.

This list of heroes in Knights Chronicle ranks the top three characters of each type purely by how good they are in Advent and Multiplayer Dungeons (also known as PvE). In other words, don’t use this list to build your Arena team. Check out our picks for best PvE heroes below:

This rhythm game is beautiful, but is also way too short.
