The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Review

So much happened while playing this game I honestly don’t know how to start. How about a little introduction to the Legend of Heroes series.

Developed by Nihon Falcom The Legend of Heroes games are comprised, as of this writing, of eight games. Some are sequential, meaning you will probably want to play the following game but every other game is a start of a new story, just like Trails of Cold Steel. Continue reading

Ys Memories of Celceta – Review

Up to Ys Memories of Celceta the only other game in the series I had played was Ys Origin which is incredible from start to finish. So when I bought Memories of Celceta I had high expectations for it. So how did it fare?
To be honest I have very mixed feelings on the game. At times, I was wondering why I was playing it, and at others I was so pumped I was even thinking about when I couldn’t play it. My major complain with the game is that at times, especially in the beginning, it can be a bore and story takes way too long to become interesting.

I realize in starting the review of an RPG complaining about its story and it may not look like a good sign but bear in mind the Ys games are first and foremost an Action RPGs. So, while the story does play its part the meat of the game is the action, which I’ll say right now that it’s great but we’ll get to it later. Continue reading

Front Mission 3 – You can’t please everyone

It’s sad when there is a game everyone loves and it doesn’t matter how much you try and you just can’t get into the game. Probably most gamers have at least a few beloved games that just simply isn’t for them even if it’s in one of their more cherished genres. For me Front Mission 3 was this game.

I’m a big fan of Strategy RPGs and Final Fantasy Tactics is among my favorite games of all time. I’ve played even many forgotten SRPGs like Stella Deus and Jeanne d’Arc but I’m also into the more known, such as Disgaea and Fire Emblem. So it’s not without love for the genre but Front Mission 3 for me is a huge disappointment.  Continue reading

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne – Review

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne is a hard game but it is all the better for it. I have a long history with this game and I’m happy that finally I was able to finally beat it, and not only that, but with the best possible ending and beating all optional bosses. Before we get to the review itself, I’d like to share a bit of my personal history with the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) franchise and how it led to Nocturne.

I beat this game in the last days of December (2017) but it took me more than a month to write a review for it. I think the reason why is because of how much it stuck on me. I’ll try to share my thoughts on this fantastic game and the reason why I think that every fan of JRPGs should at least give it a try at some point. With that in mind, let’s begin.

Persona 5 – Review – Best Game Ever!

After five months playing Persona 5 I have finally beat it. I also decided to give a few weeks to let everything sink in in order to write a fair review. The reason I’m doing this is because I love it so much I want to try to remove the hype factor but honestly I think it’s impossible now because of how much I enjoyed it.

With so much to cover I don’t think I know where to begin from, so let’s go in order this time and start with the story. Continue reading

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey – Love & Hate Review

Before I even start my review I have to say that I love this game but I also hate it. Thankfully I love it way more than I hate it but by god, it’s hard having mixed feeling about something and trying to put them into words. In Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey you have some aspects that are so incredibly good, immersive and captivating but on the other hand there are some things that are so infuriating…

Bear in mind, I consider myself big fan of the Megami Tensei games and while I love most games of this franchise I’ve played, there are some things in some entries that I can’t help but criticize.

Some of my complains here may seem like a rant, and in a way they are but bear in mind that even having a big and growing fandom, not all fans enjoy the same qualities of the games equally. While my complains are not restricted to Strange Journey I think it’s pertinent to talk about those here because of all the games I’ve played, they are most apparent in this title.

The game starts when a distortion appears in Antarctica, some sort or a black-ish hole, engulfing it and named the Schwarzwelt. This area is steadily growing and threatening to eventually cover the entire planet. To stop it, the United Nations sends a special team to go inside, look into it and somehow try to find a way to stop it, however they could not possible imagine what they would find once they enter it.
