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.

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.

Huh.
Huh.

Shin Megami Tensei 4 - Full Review

Review by Philippe – 10/17/2013

 

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.

Desolate landscape? Check.

The Crazy World of 3D Gaming

Review by Philippe – 7/15/2013

 

I grew up a Nintendo fanboy, but the 3DS just did not excite me. I thought the 3D was gimmicky, and the effect gave me a headache during my 5 minute test run at a store, I was unimpressed by its game catalogue and region locking, and of the two colours available, one was hideous.
