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…

Crystal Chronicles: Have I Been Playing All Wrong?

It feels like the GameCube era of games falls into an odd middle ground where they’re just old enough that getting your hands on them is hard, but they’re also too new to be included on Virtual Console or the Switch’s online service.  So when I saw that the Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles HD remake…

Cat Quest: Demo Review

G’day, folks, in recent times, I have taken to downloading free demos as a means to experience a greater variety of games without having to pay for something I may not end up liking.  (Y’know, the very reason demos exist.)  Being someone who adores animals, especially those of the feline variety, it was no wonder…

Cheeky Charlatans: Swaine

I’ve actually written about Swaine before on my own blog, but when we decided on the topic of “playfully mischievous characters” for the month of April, I couldn’t help but revisit my favorite character from Ni no Kuni, the snarky thief Swaine.  Funnily enough, my original feelings for Swaine were actually far from positive because,…

Ni no Kuni for the DS vs. PS3 – What’s the Difference?

As a big fan of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PS3, it was only a matter of time before I discovered that there was actually an earlier version of the game for the DS called Ni no Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn.  Unfortunately, this version of the game was…

Child of Light: An Excellent RPG for Those Pressed for Time

More often than not, a game with an interesting art style is a surefire way to grab my attention.  While this is most certainly not the only criteria one should consider when perusing their gaming options, it has also led me to such interesting titles as Okami, GRIS, and Cuphead, all of which are excellent…
