Fans of the JRPG genre are the target audience here, especially those who have an appreciation for titles from a couple of generations back. The good news is, this is a genre that generally ages rather well, and Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds is a welcome throwback to that era. Still, a bit more effort put into developing the characters and steering away from some of the overly familiar tropes of the genre would have gone a long ways toward making Legrand Legacy a more memorable overall experience. It is fun while you play it, but falls short of the unforgettable games of the past it tries to emulate.
All in all, this is an interesting title in the Corpse Party series, but it’s not something for everyone. It’s an almost entirely lighthearted story mixed with pure visual novel gameplay. If you enjoy the other games in the Corpse Party series, understand what you like about them before dipping into this game. If you’re looking for horror then this game won’t be for you, but if you enjoy the characters enough to be willing to watch them in a parody, you’ll be able to have a lot of fun with this title.
This isn't the worst or the best of the one and a half seasons of Batman that Telltale Games has provided us. It's good, but not great as the story itself feels as though it is setting us up for the last half of this season, but thankfully this is not one of those episodes that just treads water and completely stalls out the plot in favor of some new character introductions.
I have played numerous Telltale Games titles over the years, and there are certain trends I have noticed along the way. Usually the first and penultimate episodes tend to drag a bit, for example. While I cannot yet speak for the latter scenario, I have to say I was very impressed with how Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 1: The Enigma kicks things off.
While there are some technical hiccups that occur here, The Golf Club 2 still offers the best round of play available on any platform currently. If you can look past those concerns, fans of the sport should find a great deal to enjoy about this latest offering in the series.
SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! - Full Course is part of a rather interesting world that usually features fighting games, but this spin-off of the series is a rhythm based title. I honestly had no idea what to expect here, as variant games like this can be incredibly hit and miss, but I'm happy to say that my time spent with this one was enjoyable more often than not.
Necropolis gets off to a good start, evoking the dark feel of the Souls games while adding in some unique roguelike elements to boot. One does not generally associate the word 'accessible' with either of those two inspirations, but by and large Necropolis actually has a surprisingly low barrier of entry. However, over time that accessibility gives way to a somewhat shallow and ultimately less satisfying experience than the games that clearly inspire it.
To its credit, Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found gives the player a ton of different things to do and the sends of progression, steadily scaling difficulty and procedurally generated levels give the game incredible amounts of replay value. Toy Odyssey is not a perfect game, but the good does outweigh the bad overall.
There is something fundamentally creepy about Event, which is an adventure game with a first person perspective. It is very narrative-driven and also quite short, which may have some people scratching their heads at what the fuss is all about. The thing is, it offers you a connection to a character and the way you own the relationship that is built is both unique and deserves the time to properly explore it.
