Superb visuals, music and narration which creates a fantastic harmony. While the plot is great and creative, the gameplay aspect is far from optimized and lacks the creativity which doesn’t quite reflect the intention of mise en scene. It may have been a better experience if this piece was introduced as a graphic novel or a traditional point and click adventure game.

In this seemingly semi-open world title, the plot is quite short ended and the gameplay was forced on rails. There is almost no consideration in terms of playable character balances and the crafted gear has less to no merit since it doesn’t provide any new elements in skill sets. Additionally, the vast majority of combat is just rinse and repeat. If you’re aware and enjoyed the original book and animation, some of the appearances will be familiar, so treat it like a side-story act and you’ll still be able to chill and enjoy this game to its fullest.

50 / 100 - I Am Setsuna
Nov 9, 2020

If you lived in the era of SNES JRPGs and truly understand the definition of how classic games were meant to be played, the detailed stories and music will at least shield you through most of the ‘stuff you had to endure’ back then.

An affordable game with a full character dialog dub is a rare combination, but an RPG that tried its best to bring you as much contents it can, the pricing of just under $20 and especially if you were a fan of their original game, it’s well worth the spend to explore the stories of your favorite characters. The only nitpicks would be where the game’s UI could have taken more advantage of the Nintendo Switch’s key features.

If you just judge by the graphics, it feels very outdated. But the idea of it all is pretty decent as it focuses on the geographical location of ‘Akihabara’ and the stories based around it. Although the entire run is roughly around 8 hours, so the hype dies down quite sooner than you think. Play through multiple side missions and try to unlock all the various endings to stretch that play time longer. There are several factors that may not be fulfilling, but if you’ve never been to Akihabara before, while it’s not the best time to physically travel the world, this digital version of Akihabara may ease your urge and your otaku spirit can rest with this game... for now.

If you’re into classic style games made with a pseudo RPG maker tool, you should give this game a whirl. There are plenty of jump scares with ghosts and monsters popping out of nowhere so you got to be prepared to be on the run at all times. All this while having to solve puzzle elements that get in your way. The same routes you run amok can randomly be altered by the poltergeist feature during gameplay, so memorizing some of the paths may not be the best answer. As you progress through the story, you may question the difficulty of the game since the ones chasing you can sometimes be more overpowered than you think.

Whether you’re a hardcore Falcom fan or a diehard follower of the ‘Trails’ series, this is the right time to get started with The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Kai. This may be the JRPG which may convert you into a fan in no time. Since the full ‘Trails’ universe promises to become much greater as the story develops, this series will let you know what kind of world you’re getting yourself into. Packed with content and plots to uncover, alongside plenty of side quests to complete as well. Please beware that you’ll eventually notice several repeated character animations and even cringe worthy production value, so take care of your eyes and mind to have enough capacity to absorb them with a grain of salt as you play through.

Perhaps if they minimized some of the duplicate elements which happened in its prequel, this game could have served a more unique and solid content. You’ll discover a lot of information based around the Erebonian Empire, which is the primary setting of the Trails of Cold Steel series. As a fan of the Legend of Heroes universe, this iteration of the game serves as a checkpoint for you to join all the dots. There wasn’t much of a revamp in visuals and graphics since the prequel, but it will pack a punch when it comes to turning the tables and plot twists. As a JRPG fan, you won’t be dissapointed.

60 / 100 - Ys Origin
Oct 20, 2020

If you’re a fan of the Ys series, this one’s a must have to get to know the past of the first initial game that started all this. There are many questionable elements which may serve as an obstacle for some of the modern gamers so you would have to be a true fan of the game as well as having the heart to play classic retro games to be able to endure most of them. At least with its affordable pricing, it’s not a bad game to play on the go.

Ys: Memories of Celceta is a fast paced ARPG. Although it has been optimized into full HD resolution with 60fps, it will take some time for your eyes to get used to the new graphic vibe. If you're a long running fan of the Ys series, you can add another fun element of trying to find 'what has changed' from the 4th installment of the Ys title.

The series tradition of scavenging for items and conjuring materials and tools with alchemy has become far more ideal and enjoyable. The plot however, felt like a quick patch up of leftover question marks from the prequel. As a fan, It still packs a wholesome gameplay experience, as you get to discover what happened to all the characters in the 3 years since the first adventure.

Trails from Zero is a game that’s been out for over 10 years already, thus even a remaster won’t be able to fully transform the old school looks to something we’d expect in a modern game. Positively speaking, it still generates a retro feel JRPG with classic control schemes. Compared to its other titles, this particular Trails series has the smallest world and the protagonists are not as ‘heroic’ as we’d expect, rather close to an average joe, while they still go though all the rough adventures like any other hero would. This unique plot kind of makes them the most realistic heroes they’d ought to be, and they also never split apart during their journey and keep as a tight knit unit until the end. It’s inevitable that there are some nit picks to be found but if you’re into any other 2D JRPGs, Trails from Zero will keep you entertained as much as any other JRPGs would.

This is the grand finale of the Trails series. To represent that extra icing on the cake, there are plenty of content to explore and numerous characters will appear as if we’re at an all-star game. The long and extended stories which bloomed from the Erebonian empire will come to an end, and some of the deeply rooted histories behind some of the important individuals will also be covered with their back stories. Other than Trails of Reverie, this final game packs the most amount of volume and convenience to a comparison. If you’re a loyal fan of the series, you do not want to miss out on the finale to the story.

This is the second game to be published as a Marvel I.P. under SquareEnix. Unlike the previous game based on the Avengers, this is more focused towards action and adventure. Players control Starlord and command his teammates to accomplish various puzzles and defend against waves of enemies. Although some parts may sound repetitive, constant trash talk among the guardians turn chores into more pleasurable strategies during combat. There are multiple branching outcomes based on some decision making phases but after around 15 to 20 hours of completing the main story, there isn’t much to do after which makes multiple playthroughs obsolete.

70 / 100 - Smelter
May 8, 2021

If you’re into side scrolling platformer and tower defense type of games, this is the one that combines them both. With a slight blend of real-time strategy within the tower defense phase, the game tries its best to naturally support these mixed genres to play nice with each other. That being said, the downside of multi-genre in a single game is that if you lack understanding in one of the mentioned genres, there will be some sections where it will forever stress you out. Other than dividing them into phases, if the different genres played in harmony for the entire run, it could have been a good experiment to invent its own genre. At least the separate segments are decently put together which makes it a great gaming experience. The Korean localization was top notch which helps in delivering the intentions of the story very well to the Korean gamers.

The long lasting story of the Empire within the Trails of Cold Steel series is passing the midpoint and hastily advancing towards the climax. In this game, there are various plot thickening events that may seem unfamiliar unless you’ve played the prequel. The game’s story is well known to commonly have tables flipping, plot twisting events so for the new players, it may be difficult to adjust to the pace of the main storyline. If you want to purely enjoy the gameplay, this iteration of the game has one of the best Falcom style JRPG user interface, thus you won’t have any issues with clearing the encounters you’ll face long the way. Lot’s of content to discover and various minigames will keep you seated until the end.

70 / 100 - Mary Skelter 2
Feb 10, 2020

If you have the guts to play through some dark and intense story of a distopia, it's got some substantial value as a DRPG genre. If you're into the characters and voice actors of Kei Nanameda, it will be a bonus. The game doesn't really cater for convenience so if you can withstand some challenging mechanics, it's definitely worth a try.

Simply put, it’s a fun game. The game is targeted towards the fans of puzzle elements fused with action. Affordable price and the value for money is well rounded. The genre itself is self explanatory and straight forward but the gameplay itself provides many twists as you progress along its many stages. Well worth a try.

It’s a must play title as an ARPG fan. Other than some of the visual expressions, there isn’t much to nitpick about. The story progression is very solid and the ending will leave you with some emotional lingering if you were concentrating on the plot throughout the whole game. Explosive action, fun and appealing characters are some of the highlights of this game. We welcome you to join Adol and Dana in their adventures towards Eresia.

Another great ‘Spider-man game’ for those who know what I’m talking about. Technically, the game itself is a spin-off from the original so there aren’t too many elements that are to be deemed as improvements, but it kept all the positive technicalities and successfully debuted the new Spider-man, Miles Morales.
