Dragon Quest 8 Review

Bringing all of these older Dragon Quest games to the Nintendo 3DS is a brilliant idea, and I'm loving every minute of it. Although Dragon Quest 8 doesn't boast the obvious improvements we saw in Dragon Quest 7

More Thoughts From Me #52: Play & Learn

This More Thoughts From Me is about Edutainment games. You can and should learn from video games. Its great to have a fun game that has  an entertaining story. We all want that escape from reality. Fun is important. But why can’t you, sometimes at least, have fun and learn something too? Most people seem to think of Edutainment as a genre for kids. Many of these games are, in fact, designed for little kids. Some, such as Brain Age,…

Almost Missed It: I Am Setsuna For #NintendoSwitch

I had no idea what I Am Setsuna was and didn’t think I’d care. I saw the name listed in Nintendo’s recent 2017 Nintendo Switch lineup image on twitter.

Then, I saw a Nintendo Enthusiast video that showed off a lot of games that are coming for the Switch this year. One…

The new rpg was the game that caught my attention. Yes, I do want Dragon Quest 11…

#SwitchAnticipatedTitles: Xenoblade 2

I had heard a rumor that Monolith Soft was working on a game for Nintendo Switch, but I was still not prepared for Xenoblade 2’s reveal. I enjoyed the previous Xenoblade games on Wii and Wii U, so it was a happy surprise. Xenoblade 2 is definitely one of my Anticipated titles for Nintendo Switch. When I saw the Monolith Soft logo at the beginning of a trailer last night, I thought I knew what we’d see, but I wasn’t…

The Mercenaries Return for Another Saga: A Look At Mercenaries Saga 3

Mercenaries Saga 2 for the 3DS was one of my favorite games last year. It was a game that harkened back to the Final Fantasy Tactics series, while also bringing its own unique story, characters, and level up/job system. After I beat the game, I was already ready for the next one. And thankfully, just recently, Circle Entertainment brought Mercenaries Saga 3 to the North American 3DS eshop. Here are my impressions so far of the game. Mercenaries Saga 3…
