Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country Review

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 got a prequel in the form of a DLC named Torna - The Golden Country that people could play a week early before the physical version if they already had the Season Pass. I didn't get the pass because I wasn't really interested in the minor extras which were mostly fan service oriented. It was revealed at Gamescom...


Demon Gaze 2 Review

I came across the first game on PSN Plus and really enjoyed it which was a pleasant surprise because I never knew about the game let alone buy the game. It's been too long since I played the predecessor so can't quite remember how the story went but, I don't think this is a sequel although you do come across a few mild references. You play as a...


Octopath Traveler Guide

Octopath Traveller is quite a big game and with some of the mechanics falling back to the old JRPG days, it's not an easy game either so here are some tips that should help you. After clearing the first chapters, you might notice shrines as you explore Orsterra. These will allow you to unlock jobs as sub-jobs for characters which will...


Octopath Traveler Review

It's been a long time since Octopath Traveller (the British English spelling with double "L") was revealed for the Switch and now the name's here to stay with Square-Enix's latest JRPG. It's proven to be so popular that the first batch of physical copies sold out before the holiday weekend in Japan. You can choose to start the game as...


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Platinum Trophy Guide

Not long ago I reviewed Valkyria Chronicles 4, the latest and long awaited new entry to Sega's popular VC franchise and I enjoyed it so much I decided I'd write a guide for platinuming it. I'm sure there are already plenty of videos that show you how to 1 turn missions for S rank (or "A" in the case of localised Western copies of the game...


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

It's been a looong time since Valkyria Chronicles III on the PSP - more than 7 years ago. We had a mediocre arcade style spin-off Valkyria Revolution but that didn't quite satiate the fans hope for a real new VC game so needless to say, there was plenty of excitement when VC4 was announced. Valkyria Chronicles was a special game on the...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Tips and End Game, Collecting Those Rare Blades

I've thoroughly enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles 2 despite not liking the slow battle system at first. So much that I decided to continue playing after finishing the game to fight all the unique monsters, collect all the Rare Blades and complete side quests for the extra cutscenes. Collecting all the rare blades and maxing out Poppi QT...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles for both its gameplay, open world and presentation. I liked it so much that when I sold my Wii along with its games to clear up clutter I ended up buying it again for the New 3DS. So, needless to say I was really excited when a new game was revealed for the Switch. I was even going to hold out on the Switch until...


Tokyo Xanadu Visual Guide Artbook Review

I didn't really enjoy Tokyo Xanadu so it was a good thing I bought it second hand. However, I do like it's artwork - well, nearly all Falcom's artwork are good. Even Makoto Shinkai worked for them before after all. So I decided to import this A4 160 page "visual guide" artbook. Unfortunately, the wrapper arrived damaged because the proxy...


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...
