Ranking at #2 and #5 on Sean and Jonathan’s respective Top 10 Games of 2020 lists, Vanillaware’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is undeniably one of the most singular gaming experiences of the last year – an incredibly compelling, blissfully confusing, wickedly intelligent mix of the visual novel, adventure game, and real-time strategy genres into one unique package that is absolutely unlike anything we’ve played before. A mecha and kaiju story with aspects of just about every anime genre under the sun – from high school shows to mystery dramas to magical girl series – 13 Sentinels is more than worthy of a deep dive discussion, especially considering it was a podcast listener who turned us onto the game in the first place! Consider this episode our thanks for the recommendation – and a strong encouragement for those who haven’t played it yet to take the plunge.
