Siege Spots – Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (PS4) Review
In 2008, Valkyria Chronicles launched on PS3 to critical acclaim. Critics agreed that it's strategy RPG gameplay was a unique treat not to be missed. Now, 8 years later, after recently relaunching on Steam, it's found its way to the PlayStation 4. It's also found its way into my hands for the first time, after years of being curious about it. So, how does it hold up?

The Wandering Witch – Gets ERASED?!
Welcome, all, again. This is proving to be a glorious viewing season, with offerings for fans of all genres. I absolutely love KONOSUBA-God's blessing on this wonderful world!, a comedy/fantasy wherein a newly deceased youth coerces the goddess juggling his soul to accompany him to a world seeking heroes; likewise Ooya-san wa Shishunki!, a comedy short about a middle school landlady and her tenants.

Welcome, all, again. This is my first column of the new year, so it seems like an appropriate time to try something a bit different. Instead of straddling the viewing season change with my normal backward glance, I want to discuss some shows that have already impressed me.

The Wandering Witch – Through the GATE!
Welcome, all, again. This season has provided many stellar series, but GATE demands special recognition for its attention to detail and story development. Perhaps my own prior military service colors my admiration for this show, but it is more my interest in history that fuels my appreciation for the writers' delicate exploration of social and political considerations exhibited by individuals and nations.
