Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A good introduction to Strategy RPG's...

The game is a cross over between Pokemon and the Nobunaga's Ambition/Romance of the Three Kingdoms series. It's a strategy game with role-playing mechanics. I enjoyed it but it's waaayy too easy for SRPG veterans and perhaps too hard for very young kids unless they pick things up quickly.
