Review: Persona 5

Published May 16, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene

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.

Breath of the Wild is the latest game in The Legend of Zelda series that was released on March 3rd. It largely breaks from traditions as it is an open world experience that everyone should play. I’ve played it to its conclusion, but this won’t contain any spoilers. Let’s wake up and get started!

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!

Review: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies

Published May 12, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies continues the story by introducing new characters and having more cases to solve. I think it still holds up to the previous games and improved in some areas. The character development is great, except for how the spotlight kept going back and forth between Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes; to have Athena come to the agency when Apollo is still relatively new wasn’t the best idea, but it all works in the end. Let’s get going with the review! Read the rest of this entry →

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Published February 8, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Xenoblade Chronicles X (XCX) is one of great potential for sure, but did it succeed in meeting up with the high expectations and hype flowing from Xenoblade Chronicles (XC)? Personally, I mostly enjoyed XC, though it had problems towards the end with the story getting too stretched out and odd. Anyways, I’ll try to cover as much as I can in the review without spoilers, and then later on I’ll be doing another article detailing more on what worked and what didn’t.

Review: Child of Light

Published January 15, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Child of Light was the game-of-the-year in 2014 for many it seems, and I’m late to the party. I beat it recently and I truly enjoyed almost everything about it. The story and characters are good, suiting the fairytale theme. The music was alright, the song in the end credits and the main battle theme stood out. Beauty is clearly the focus point of this game because the art is amazing. I recommend Child of Light, whether it’s at full price or at a discount on occasion. Read the rest of this entry →
