Dragon Quest Builders Review

Basically Dragon Quest meets Minecraft which means you build and explore with a purpose. The world has been destroyed by darkness and you as the hero/heroine is the only one that can remember how to build things. Silly plot eh? Each land represents a level and your objective is to build up the town and then eventually defeat the boss...


Blue Reflection Review

BR basically takes on the "magical girl" genre where girls can transform into magical heroines that save the world. Hinako starts at her new school and meets an old classmate who she never knew. Suddenly she laughs maniacly and Hinako finds herself transported to a strange world. A voice speaks to her and a ring appears, granting her a...


Nier: Automata Review

Never did get into the Nier game on the PS3 but after playing the demo, I was quite excited about Nier:Automata. The post apocalyptic story is quite silly - aliens sent automatons to Earth and became a threat so big humans had to flee to the moon. Now they have come with a way to transfer their memories between androids to continue the...


Tokyo Xanadu Visual Guide Artbook Review

So I decided to import this A4 160 page "visual guide" artbook. Unfortunately, the wrapper arrived damaged because the proxy service Tenso.com I used didn't re-wrap or pad out the parcel before sending it over... Ah well, at least the book itself is fine =/ So, what are the contents of this artbook? It's actually quite thin but pretty...


Persona 5 Official Design Works Artbook Review

Prima Games book has also been released and according the Reddit thread it's actually not missing that much despite the lower page count. Some items were moved around and layout changed as I predicted so, content is still there, just smaller. What is missing are the interview (which you can find here), game assets such as icons and the...


Valkyria Azure Revolution Review

Been 6 years since the last VC game, Valkyria Chronicles 3 was released on PSP. Now we finally have a new title but despite the Selvaria look-alike in the promotion illustration, it's only set in the same universe and as the title "Valkyria Revolution" suggests, with the gameplay going through some "revolution". Amleth, one of 5...


Persona 5 Platinum Trophy Guide

Usually game series get mundane after so many titles but Atlus pretty much took Persona 5 to a new level and refined it so much it's worth a second playthrough. So here is a guide on how to get the Platinum trophy while you're at it. The trophies are pretty much similar to Persona 4 Golden but might actually be easier thanks to new features...


Final Fantasy XV Review

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...


World of Final Fantasy Review

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...


Persona 5 Review

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. So the protagonist is another high school student...
