I had never heard of Root Letter before so I had no idea what it was about. At first glance, you’d think it’s another dating sim where you just try to pick the best choices to win a girl’s heart. However, I went onto read the story which was about Takayuki Max who wrote to a girl named Aya as a penfriend. One day one of her letters wrote, “I killed someone. I must atone for my sins. This is farewell.”
You play as Takayuki 15 years later since Aya stopped corresponding and he decided to track her down by going to her home town. However, all her classmates deny knowing her and the strange thing is, they say she had died long before she became Takyuki’s penpal… Could she have been a ghost? Takayuki intends to find out.
So 10 years in the making, Final Fantasy XV is finally out. SE’s latest release which will hopefully restore faith in their fanbase after FFXIII didn’t go so well with fans. The delay doesn’t quite stop there since on the PS4 version there’s an additional 9.5GB patch to download on top of a 50GB install before you can actually start the game but, that’s not much compared to the 10 year wait for some fans and since we now have broadband.
In FFXV, the Empire has taken over with its Magitek army and with it comes dark times. Now Luna, a descendant from the bloodline of Oracles is claiming the powers of gods to help claim it back. Meanwhile her childhood friend and next in-line prince, Noct makes his way back from his roadtrip trying to catch up with her hoping to stop the menacing evil together and lighten her burden.
Two siblings Reynn and Lann find themselves in a deserted world where everything seems out of place but a “God” claims they’ve been around for a long time. Now they must travel around the world of Grymoire to find out more about themselves while saving it from the clutches of evil.
World of Final Fantasy’s gameplay is kind of similar to Pokemon – they probably played around with the idea from FFXIII 2 anyway. Fortunately, it plays a lot better. Of course, instead of being called Pokemon, they’re “Mirages” and to catch them you have to weaken them first but, Toseco takes it a step further because you need to use a certain kind of attack to weaken them further.
The highly hyped open world game, “No Man’s Sky” where alien worlds are randomly generated by an algorithm so that every planet players visit will look different. There was even one research organisation that accused the developers of stealing their formula for doing this and the media giant Sky even tried to get rid of their name.
So now the game is finally released multi-platform. Does it live up to the hype?
Atlus’ Persona series has been receiving great success both overseas and in Japan since they changed the gameplay with Persona 3. After a series of Persona 4 spin-offs and Atlus being being acquired by Sega, we finally have a proper new much anticipated entry in the series, Persona 5.
