Persona 5 is a fantastic Japanese, turn-based role-playing game that builds up from previous installments of the Persona franchise. Almost everything about it is well done from the story and characters to the environments and puzzles. Some things could be improved on or changed like how you’re forced to go to sleep after diving into the Palaces or Mementos. But it is mostly perfect for those who enjoy dungeon crawling and fighting Shadows. There will be some slight spoilers of the beginning, so you’ve been warned.

First Impressions: Persona 5

Published April 25, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene

Persona 5 is a new Japanese role-playing game that came out on April 4th and I’m enjoying every minute of it. I got the “Take Your Heart” special edition right when it released because I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time among the Persona fans. I feel like I’m almost towards the end of the game, but I won’t say any spoilers.

Review(s): Fire Emblem Fates

Published December 22, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Fire Emblem Fates is the latest game in the Fire Emblem series that came out in February 2016 for the United States. It is a tactical, turn-based role-playing game. I meant to have my review done sooner, but it just took me awhile to beat the games. In Fire Emblem Fates, all three paths are fun to play and have something special going for each. I think my favorite out of the three is between Conquest and Revelations… sorry Hoshido. Anyways, Fire Emblem Fates is another great addition to the Fire Emblem series with its unique approach that is worth playing.

Review: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

Published September 11, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is an odd crossover project between the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei franchises that no one expected. While it was not what most people wanted (including myself, a darker R.P.G.), this game proves the two can easily combine for great gameplay. The story, however, mostly falls to the wayside due to its straightforward predictability, but there are a few little surprises here and there; this is a shame because both series are known for deep, great storytelling. So without further ado, let’s get started. *Warning – There are some minor spoilers!

The Kid Icarus series didn’t see the light of day for twenty years till Kid Icarus Uprising came out in 2012. Now it’s 2016 and Nintendo hasn’t done anything since besides including Dark Pit and Palutena as new playable characters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS which released in 2014. While Kid Icarus Uprising wasn’t perfect, I think it’s one of the best 3DS games. Pit would be great to include in the initial lineup of titles for the “NX” when it arrives for many reasons.
