Dr. Loboto, Swaine, and Freddy Join the Duck in Miitopia

I’m still working my way through Miitopia, a charming RPG where you can choose the faces of every character in the game.  Very soon, our Youtube playthrough shall be taking a break, which will be temporary or permanent depending on the views.  I’ve already written a review about the demo, and now I’d like to…

World of Final Fantasy: Demo Review

World of Final Fantasy is a game I’ve had a passing interest in for the last couple of years, even though I knew nothing about it, except for the vague notion that it featured Final Fantasy characters from across the franchise.  It wasn’t until quite recently, however, that I decided to check out the “Dungeon…

Wanderjahr: Demo Review

Wanderjahr is a cute and colorful JRPG with a deceptive level of difficulty.  In fact, the game’s subtitle is “Try Again or Walk Away”, which seems like a clear challenge to the player.  Are you going to try again and figure out where you went wrong…or give up?  Well, considering I took the latter route,…

Disgaea 4 Complete: Demo Review

Though I’ve played a decent number of RPGs over the years, one subset of the genre in which I have little experience is tactical RPGs.  I was first introduced to them during a short span of time spent playing the Shining Force games on this Sega Genesis Collection I have for the XBox 360, though…

Oninaki: Demo Review

Oninaki is an action-RPG created by Tokyo RPG Factory where you play as a Watcher, someone who brings peace to the dead and helps guide them to the next world.  The game features real-time combat, and you fight alongside different spirits called Daemons.  As someone who usually likes games with darker stories, I have to…

Miitopia: Demo Review

Miitopia is one of those surprising games that I never really expected to like.  I originally watched a partial playthrough of the original 3DS version on Youtube as part of Peanut Butter Gamer’s old PB&Jeff series.  Seeing as I never really liked the Mii characters that Nintendo had been pushing since the Wii days, I…

Portal Knights: Demo Review

My first impression upon starting the Portal Knights demo was that it felt a lot like Minecraft with RPG elements.  The game is described as a sandbox RPG, and the world is split up into a bunch of randomly-generated islands, though the demo only had us exploring one island after I spent a good deal…

Monsters and Mayhem in Dragon’s Dogma

As I suspect my time with Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will slow down over the coming months, I spent a good chunk of the last month chipping away at my ranger Corinne’s adventures in the game. Upon reading a bit more about the game and learning that its “new game plus” feature is where this…

What is a Dragons’ Dogma, Anyway?

Dragon’s Dogma is a game that’s been on my radar since it was first released in 2012. When it’s enhanced version was released not too long after, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, it immediately went on several of my wishlists…and there it remained for a very long time. Between then and now, I became immersed in…

Earthlock: Demo Review

As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs.  Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide…
