Now this one was a shocker for me.
So I've finally gotten around to finishing Bravely Default: Flying Fairy (BD). It's taken up a lot of my time. I've spent very close to 100 hours going at it, and it's been an up and down experience. I'll say it right away, it's going to be extremely difficult to make this review spoiler free, because the game's biggest shortcoming is linked to the story. I'll try and concentrate all the spoilers in one page of the review, so you could skip that page should you want to avoid spoilers.
Review by Philippe – 6/1/2014
I've just learned that a Zelda game called Hyrule Warriors will make its way to the Wii U. It's basically a Dynasty Warriors game with characters from Zelda.
Who says JRPGs are dead? Take a look at some of the best games of 2013: Fire Emblem: Awakening, Ni no Kuni, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Etrian Odyssey 4...
It's no secret I'm a fan of the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) series. Nocturne, the Digital Devil Saga, Persona 3 and 4; I consider these games to be not only among the best JRPGs I've played, but among my favourite games of all time. That's not to say I wasn't disappointed/shocked when I heard numero quattro was for 3DS, and used 2D sprites. Really? 2D sprites, on a console that does 3D? I still trusted Atlus enough to overlook these "mistakes", and crossed my fingers as I pre-ordered my copy.
