  • I played this just a few years ago and reading the review I realized...There was an empire??? That story has completely faded from my memory, but I do remember having fun with the combat. One of those games I faded on halfway through, but mostly en…

  • This is so tough to narrow down, but my early unranked contenders: - XCOM Enemy Unknown/Within - Fire Emblem Awakening - Mass Effect 2 - Yakuza 0 - Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC - Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together - The Legend of Z…
  • Mercenaries Saga Chronicles: Will of the White Lions (Switch) - Finished off the first game in what the Switch claims is 25 hours (though I never got the game timer on the save file to play nice with sleep mode). Of course, right after that Impressi…
  • Hmm, Vita recommendations... I know Wheels said to keep it to one, but how about three and I avoid any Visual Novels, deal? Deal. 1) LOH: Trails in the Sky Evolution - not sure if Mr. Baker has played any of the Trails games, but if not I have to…
  • They each have unique main casts; I haven't noticed any cameos yet, but I'm paying a lot more attention to the plot this time than when I played MS2. I think they all take place in the same world, but I wouldn't swear to that. I've been writing down…
  • All 3 are in the 15-20 hour range. Great value for pretty good SRPGs.
  • Not to completely derail into Souls talk, but my biggest problem with the Souls games and Bloodborne isn't the combat, but the art style. After spending a couple of hours playing them, I just have no interest in spending more time in that world. Tha…
  • I'm not a fan of the Souls games, but A) I recognize that I'm in the minority on that and I understand that lots of other people like them and B ) I certainly wouldn't argue that they haven't had a large impact on gaming the last few years. It seems…
  • I mean, this is how Atlus and lots of other smaller developers survive. Smaller devs don't have the bandwidth to have multiple new projects coming out every year, hence ports of older games which can be done relatively inexpensively, there is a buil…
  • So I've made a bit of progress, but not in the way that I was intending. I started off with playing Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions and bounced off of that HARD. That game and I do not get along. Maybe I'll try one of the fan patched version…
  • A Demo that lets me carry over progress into the final release? Well i know what I’m doing at the end of the month. Heaven help me if it includes the cat cafe minigame.

  • Ahh, part of what I love about Japanese games; absolute unexplainable zaniness. This is on the list of things to look forward to this year. Maybe we'll get really lucky and get a digital release of the Vita version.
  • Own this on Steam; it's one of those games i bought when it was dirt cheap. I think I bought it for the novelty of trying something developed in Taiwan. This may have been the one I heard had combat similar to Final Fantasy XIII (don't hold me to th…
  • Yeesh, what a mess. Really, what else is there to say

  • Golf Story (Switch) - This was a fun little game, though I’m not sure I enjoyed it as much as many people (saw it on a surprising number of GOY lists). The pixel art is fantastic and I like the basic concept, but a lot of the humor fell flat for me …

  • Goodness Gracious that install size. They aren't being kind to people with limited space on an SSD. I guess it's good that there actually is a disk option for PC; it would take quite a while to download the entire game.
  • My memories of Hearts R are hazy; like the panel, I remember enjoying the combat, but essentially nothing from the story has stuck with me. Enjoyed what I played, didn't finish it, don't feel too inclined to go back. Graces has always sounded lik…
  • I'm curious to give TWEWY another go. I liked the story and aesthetics, but the battle system didn't quite click for me. Well, more that I found that the computer did a better job handling the top screen than I did splitting my attention and then I …
