Super Dungeon Tactics

Armed with turn-based tactical rpg gameplay, Super Dungeon Tactics invaded the Nintendo Switch last week. I have a review copy of it and I’m finally ready to let you know whether or not you should check out this game. Is Super Dungeon Tactics worth visiting? The story in Super Dungeon Tactics isn’t that great. Its very basic actually. What saves it from being boring is the game’s sense of humor! The character dialogue is pretty funny. The story and dialogue…

Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition HD Review-in-progress Part 2

In Part 1 of my review-in-progress of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition HD, I talked about the game’s story. In part 2, I want to focus on the game’s battle system and exploration. How much does the battle system feel like a traditional FF experience? What about the exploration? Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition doesn’t have a turn-based battle system. I really wish it did. The battle system in FF15 isn’t horrible, in fact I’ve been enjoying for the most…

Dragon Quest 11 – Review Chapter 3 – Typical Battle Sequences

Many turn based role playing games have drawn from the experience and development of the Dragon Quest series, and true to the original release, Square Enix has actually done very little to overhaul the battle system they have implemented. Sure, there are a few new ways to deal damage, and a new movement option in Dragon Quest 11, but it's mostly stuck to the core mechanics that have made the franchise so successful for so long. And that's not a bad thing.

Dragon Quest 11 – Review Chapter 2 – All Those Voices

When games are developed and released in Japan, western audiences sometimes feel left out. This was definitely the case for Dragon Quest 11, which was released in July of 2017 in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation 4. Over a year later, and the game has finally landed on western shores, with many fans asking, "What took so long." When playing through the first 10 or so hours of Dragon Quest 11, I realized one major thing: there is a lot of text in this game. I mean a lot! On top of the translation that would need to occur, there is also one other ...
