Valkyria Chronicles Remaster for PS4

The Windows port of the underrated tactical turn-based game is coming to the PS4 in 2016. If you’ve never played this game and you have a PS4, buy it. If you have played it, consider buying it again so Sega will consider porting the sequels as well.

Chaos Reborn

Chaos Reborn

A tactical turn-based RPG from the creator of X-COM. Like its predecessor, Chaos Reborn adds bluffing to combat: you can try to summon a creature or merely conjure its illusion. Mana lets you increase the chances of summoning, making illusions believable. Demo here.
