Articles about Cardinal Sins

Sunday Shooting: Cardinal Sins - Well, we’ve done Eschatos and we’ve done Judgement Silversword… we might as well complete the set, right? What’s that you say? “NO!”? That’s the spirit. Cardinal Sins, also known as Judgement Silversword Recycle Edition, is a remix of Judgement Silversword into a different style of shoot ’em up.

Shmup Essentials: Eschatos - Sometimes a game doesn’t need to do anything especially new to be a great experience. Sometimes it just has to do what it does really, really well. Qute’s Eschatos, originally released only in Japan for Xbox 360, then subsequently ported to PC by Degica, very much falls into this category. On paper, it’s an incredibly conventional vertically scrolling … Continue reading Shmup Essentials: Eschatos
