Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King 3DS review

Like many people in the US and Europe, Dragon Quest VIII for the PS2 was the first Dragon Quest game I ever played. It is a video game series that is best known for its art style by Akira Toriyama (well known for being the creator of the Dragon Ball series) and pun-filled stories. As one of the most prominent J-RPG series out there, I would definitely recommend you give it a go.

A Summer vacation on Alola – Pokemon Sun and Moon Review

The Pokémon franchise celebrated it’s 20th birthday this year with a VC rerelease of the original GameBoy games on 3DS, saw the revival of the Pokémon craze from back in the late 90’s and of course gave us the birth of the seventh generation of Pokémon in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The latest installments of the popular franchise have a lot to live up to given how popular the series has been during its twenty year existence. So far, the Pokémon series has always played it safe, with minimal but crucial changes, improving the core gameplay only a step at a time, each generation’s biggest change being the introduction of a hundred-or-so new creatures to catch and train. Pokemon Sun and Moon don’t quite introduce as many new Pokémon, but rather refresh the feel of the overall game, and with success. Sun and Moon quite probably feel the freshest of all main Pokémon games since the release of the original generation.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past 3DS Review

Dragon Quest VII for the 3DS is a remake with some noticeable improvements. Although it’s not the same as its original experience, it’s still true to the series’ traditions, as you collect mini medals, sail on the ocean by boat and fly on a magic carpet. This remake is definitely a fine way to introduce the game to new players, as well as keeping it up to date to the fans of the original game. The game is visually more pleasing, through its added animations, and also has faster pacing, which suits the modern game era. Let’s not forget the game is also funny, with its many puns, dialects and accents, while still including dark themes and tragic storylines.
