Review: Yomawari ~ Midnight Shadows (Vita Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Frightening Tale of Friendship & Togetherness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Nippon Ichi Software and published by Nis America, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a creepy game that proves that friendship can overcome anything, with a heartfelt premise like that it must be a fantastic game, right? Continue reading the rest of our review to find out!



The story of Yomawari: Midnight Shadows follows two girls trapped in a nightmarish hell where ghosts and other supernatural creatures are running rampant in their hometown. They must reunite and work together for there to be any hope for them to figure out what has happened to their town and to survive. The gameplay and settings in Yomawari: Midnight Shadows are surprisingly eerie and gave us plenty of jump-scares during the course of the game.

Basically the flashlight you obtain early on in the game allows you to see spirits and other dangers, however you can't fight them and instead must hide until the creatures or spirits who spotted you give up their search. This stealth element is pretty enjoyable, but doesn't always work if a certain creature knows where you are so it's best to get a little distance between you and the immediate threat before hiding if at all possible. There are times where certain key items are needed to distract certain spirits or ghosts, but if you are an old-school gamer this will pose little to no problems at all.



The controls in the game are straightforward and easy to learn while the difficulty can be quite unforgiving if you aren't used to  retro-style stealth-based adventure games. The game is fairly short as we beat the game in under 10 hours though it might be possible that we didn't fully explore the game's areas. The game is PSTV compatible which is always a plus in our opinions!

The audio-visual presentation is superb as expected from Nippon Ichi Software! The pixel art is flawless, the dim lighting adds to the eeriness of the game, especially if you play the game with the lights off in your room as the developer intended.  The character and enemy models as well as the world itself look gorgeous as Nippon Ichi put alot of love and attention into the intricate details that give this game and series a distinct level of uniqueness that will leave a lasting impression.

The soundtrack is mostly ambient, but it really adds to the eeriness of the game. It might not be all that memorable, but it's still nice to hear nonetheless. Some of the sound effects such as screams, heartbeats, and other spooky sounds really add to the overall experience we had with the game!



Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, flawless controls, and a fantastic audio-visual presentation, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows will draw you in from beginning to end with it's spooky gameplay and charming visuals. If you're a fan of retro adventure games this is a must-have! We give Yomawari: Midnight Shadows for Vita a good level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

Feature: Farewell Miiverse ~ Reanfan's Farewell Letter To Miiverse!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bon Voyage Old Friend!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



It's been five long years since Nintendo's foray into social media, Miiverse launched on Wii U and it has since ballooned into a massive hit especially after the app was added to the 3DS, and though several restrictions added since 2015 have severely hampered the service, it is still going surprisingly strong in its twilight days leading up to its closure in less than two weeks. What does this mean for you? Well even if you don't use the app if you own a Wii U you will no longer be able to add friends to your friends list, this also means that you'll be unable to make new friends and send in-game PM's in games such as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate as well. Basically it will mean that you'll have to make due with any current friends on your list for online experiences so I suggest you don't remove anyone from your list if you plan on having any online gaming sessions on your Wii U in the future.

The 3DS is safe from this issue, since its friends list is tied to your handheld's friend code instead of Miiverse. Once Miiverse closes this will also render the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS completely useless which is another major reason why important offline available content shouldn't be tied to features that will be removed in the twilight years of a console. This is just the tip of the ice berg though as nearly 115 Wii U games feature Miiverse support within the game itself such as Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD / Breath of The Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors, New Super Mario/Luigi U, Shovel Knight, etc, etc. All of these games and many, many more will have very cool and unique features stipped from them upon Miiverse's closure which is definitely going to hurt the enjoyment factor of the games, but in some more serious cases will make some content impossible to obtain "I'm looking at you Xenoblade Chronicles X". Yes that's right, the two raid bosses in Xenoblade Chronicles X and their exclusive materials will be lost upon Miiverse's closure which will prevent players from creating a couple of the most powerful Skells in the game as well as some of the best weapons in each job class.



Regardless of the major flaws and drawbacks regarding the closure of Miiverse the social media experience it provided was one of the most unique and intriguing I have ever experienced and the colorful personalities of its myriad of members always put a smile on my face. One of the greatest things about Miiverse was that it was a gathering place of many highly talented and aspiring artists and the beauty of the art graced almost every member's timeline! There were plenty of hilarious moments such as the discovery of the aptly named Luigi Death Stare in Mario Kart 8, the creation of the facepalm-worthy meme character Bigley, and who can forget the annoyed developers talking smack about Nintendo's sudden announcement that Miiverse was going to be closing in November? Bottom line Miiverse was unique and incredible in so many ways and will be missed by our crew.



Anyways be sure to tell us about your thoughts about and past experiences you've had with Miiverse in our comments section below!

Review: Splatoon 2 (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Squids or Kids Too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed and published by Nintendo, Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the fairly popular Wii U shooter Splatoon which ended up being one of the top-selling games on the ill-fated dual-screen home console. Does this sequel hold a candle to its predecessor? Continue reading our review to find out!



Arguably the weakest aspect of the original Splatoon title that released on the Wii U was the single player Hero Mode which had only a handful of short stages that were too similar to one-another and were fairly easy to beat. The whole mode could be finished within an hour or two, but luckily Hero Mode in Splatoon 2 is much more robust with longer, more difficult stages, and much more variety to the tasks. You can easily spend 10-20 hours in the mode this time around which is fantastic news for any squid!

The gameplay in Splatoon 2 is mostly the same as its predecessor, however a few new techniques have been added such as a power shield to guard against certain attacks and of course new weapons. Multiplayer is as fun as you'd expect, however we did experience major instability and frequent disconnects while playing online which wasn't a problem with the original title on Wii U.



Salmon Run is a fun and challenging mode that will really test your mettle and can earn you some good equipment should you do well at the mode! The controls are good, but ironically the original Splatoon was much better in this regard. You'll find out why in our review of Splatoon (Wii U Retail) which will be going live early next month.

There are alot of rehashed stages alongside new ones, unfortunately alot of the old stages have been simplified and many good hiding spots in those stages have been removed which is a shame. Splatfests are the main attraction in this series and are basically a competitive poll where you vote for your favorite poll option which will basically become your team and people on both teams splat it out to prove who is top squid in the arena!



The major drawback of Splatoon 2 and the Nintendo Switch in-general is the lack of voice chat which can only be done if you have a mobile device that is compatible with Nintendo's voice chat app for Switch which is just insane in our opinions. Sure almost everyone in Japan has a mobile device, but elsewhere the numbers are as low as 35% -40% which means that depending on region there will be large groups of players online who won't be able to strategise with their team members which could give certain teams a clear-cut advantage.



Visually the game looks great with a better resolution than the previous game in the new series, however we did notice that in certain returning stages there were certain details missing that made them seem less impressive. The upside is that you'd likely miss these details during a heated match, but it still is a disappointing downgrade. The soundtrack on the other hand is just as good as the first game's and the Squid Sisters music videos are just as fun to watch and listen to which will be music to every squid's ears we're sure!



Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, solid controls, fantastic single player and multiplayer modes, and a flawless soundtrack, Splatoon 2 is a game that any Switch owner should thoroughly enjoy, however downgraded returning stages that are less detailed and are missing many hiding spots, as well as the lack of actual in-game voice chat options really hurt the game's overall score, but regardless we give Splatoon 2 a good level of recommendation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

Review: Culdcept Revolt (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Revolutionary Party!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Omiya Soft and published by Nis America, Culdcept Revolt is a party game that fuses together gameplay elements from trading card games, board games, and other forms of entertainment. The game is actually very similar to Fortune Street which was released on the Wii and became somewhat of a cult hit in the West. So does Culdcept Revolt hold a candle to other party games such as Mario Party or Fortune Street? Continue reading our review to find out!



This isn't the first time a game in the Culdcept series has been released in the West as the first entry on the Sega Saturn did release outside of Japan. This is a definite step-up from its Saturn predecessor with a ton of new cards, boards, and gameplay features.

The rules can be pretty daunting at first, but the game's single player campaign does an excellent job at easing players into the nuances and intricacies of the game. You basically earn territories and buy and upgrade guardian monsters to guard your territory your opponents have to pay a toll when they land on your territory with an unlucky roll of the dice, however they can opt to attack your guardian and steal your property. There are much more crazy rules and points of interest such as gates that when passed earn you magic "in-game currency" as well which can be used to upgrade various things such as guardians and territories.



There are other rules typical of card games that apply such as card fusion and evolution which adds another layer of strategy to the game. The multiplayer is as fun as you'd expect from a AAA party game which is a must. The contols are also solid and easy to learn.

The audio-visual presentation is quite good. As you'd probably imagine the graphics are nothing that'll blow your mind, but they're still quite pleasing while the sound-track is very enjoyable and fits the mood of the game like a glove!



Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, frantically amazing multiplayer, solid controls, and a rather enjoyable audio-visual presentation, Culdcept Revolt for the 3DS is a great game that any fan of the party genre should thoroughly enjoy as such we give the game a great level of recommendation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★¼ 9.25/10

Review: Antiquia Lost (Vita PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Half Slime Heroin Ahoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Exe-Create and published by KEMCO, Antiquia Lost is a 16-bit JRPG with a glossy coat of HD paint and is a blast to play! Is this enough to make Antiquia Lost a worthwhile purchase for you Vita/PSTV? We think so and here's why!



The story of the game revolves around the protagonist who's basically human, a half-slime girl who has a gem-eating fettish, a full-fledged slime lady who's a soldier and gets lost comically easy, and a super strong cat-person who's on in years, but wise. The story is quite comical to be honest though it does have darker moments it never tries to take itself too seriously which is a nice change of pace from most modern RPG's.

The gameplay is fairly straightforward, with a few twists such as growing fruits from seeds to boost stats and feeding gems to a certain character to raise her stat and level her up. Everything else from the turn-based battles to the other nuances such as transportation is all typical RPG-fare, which isn't a bad thing at all in our honest opinions.



The controls are easy to learn as expected from a retro-inspired JRPG which is good. The difficulty on the other-hand is way too easy for a large portion of the game thanks to the premium shop that can be accessed early on to possibly obtain extremely overpowered equipment. Antiquia Lost is also PSTV compatible which is great for players who enjoy gaming on the big-screen.

The audio-visual presentation is decent enough, the graphics are 16-bit and clearly inspired by retro games, but the art-direction isn't quite as authentic as previous KEMCO releases which is a shame, but it still looks good. The soundtrack has a few superb tracks, but for the most part is highly forgettable.



Bottom-Line:

With a comical and highly enjoyable story, solid gameplay, and flawless controls Antiquia Lost for Vita/PSTV is an excellent throwback title that will remind players of a simpler more enjoyable era of the video game industry which is always a fantastic thing.

Unfortunately the premium shop that can be used for free in-game alchemy stones can break the balance of the game's difficulty and the visuals don't quite look as nice as KEMCO's previous 2D offerings and the soundtrack is rather hit-and-miss as well. Overall though, Antiquia Lost is a fun game that fans of retro RPG's should enjoy so we give the game a solid level of recommendation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★½☆☆ 7.5/10

Review: RPG Maker ~ FES (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A lightweight but intuitive game making engine for all to enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Created by Kadokawa / Jupiter and published by Nis America, RPG Maker: FES is a lightweight and very flexible game creation engine that's is fun to tinker around with, but how does it compare to its PC counterpart? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to that question and many more!



The FES game engine allows users to place preset assets and events with ease as well as letting them create maps with a robust world map and dungeon creator. The touch controls allow for easy placement and drawing for the various functions which is incredibly intuitive and gives the engine unparalleled ease of use which as you can probably already tell is the tool's strongest asset. You can even tweak some functions if you have basic knowledge of how game engine coding works such as creating a time of day or weather engine to run in your game or even make an adventure game similar to Zelda without using the built-in default battle system!

This game engine isn't perfect however, as a big flaw it has is a severe lack of assets such as character models, enemies, and objects. There's no way to create your own assets as far as we know which is a shame as that would alleviate much of the issues we have with the software. The biggest issue we have with the software "by a longshot" is that you can only upload a single project at a time for other players to download. This not only limits developers, but has caused a severe dearth of games to be released in the community download area of the app. Again you can purchase additional slots, but most people won't bother which is a very big problem for an app that relies on user-created content.



There's also a free player app that allows anyone to play games created on the engine free of charge on the 3DS which is nice, but there isn't alot of completed content available to the community, just a bunch of short user-created demo's which won't hold most players attention for long. Bottom line, the developers should have made at least one or two finished games available from the start to showcase what the engine is capable of and to appease the players who are interested in playing rather than creation.

Visually the engine allows players to create games that look like they belong on the Gameboy Advance, which is impressive given the hardware you're working with and the art-style of the pre-made assets are gorgeous in all of their 16-bit glory! The audio is another limitation that the game has as there just aren't many tracks so don't expect to craft a masterpiece in that regard, but what is there is pretty good.



Bottom-Line:

With easy to use tools and an intuitive interface RPG Maker: FES is one of the easiest game creation engines we've ever seen so even the most inexperienced developers can craft an epic adventure of their own with this software, however many aspects of the software leave much to be desired, but if you can live with these limitations this software is a real gem albeit a flawed one. We give RPG Maker: FES for the 3DS a decently solid level of recommendation.

Review: Sword Art Online ~ Hollow Fragment (Vita Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Awesomeness of Aincrad Without The Possibility of Death!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed by Aquaria Games and published by Bandai Namco, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is the first of many JRPG's set in the world of the Sword Art Online anime series and it's a one-of-a-kind experience in many ways even when compared to other titles in the franchise! What makes this game so unique and amazing, you ask? Continue reading our review to find out the answer!



Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is a simulated MMO set after the events of the first half of season one of the anime series and occurs in an alternate timeline as such there will be inconsistencies between the Sword Art Online games and the anime. That said the story feels very true to the source material with the characters personalities and mannerisms being faithfully represented in the game.

The game is separated into two sections, Aincrad and the Hollow Area. You start off by customizing your avatar's appearance and are suddenly transported to a mysterious Hollow Area. We'll get to that shortly, but in Aincrad you can shop at various cities and socialize with your female companions while trying to progress through the final 24 floors of the floating castle. In the Hollow Area things are a bit different as you must help a girl named Philia escape from the incredibly dangerous Hollow Area.

Other differences in the Hollow Area include the implement system where you can add new features to the game using the Cardinal System to test out unimplemented features that weren't ready for SAO's release as well as Hollow Missions which are used to unlock the implements and will test your skills as a beater!



There's just so much to do in the game such as using the "good
" system to train the AI of your allies and if you're proficient enough to perfect the system you can unlock three bonus outfits for every major heroin in the game.  There are also tons of optional bosses, dating events, and sidequests in the game. There are also secret characters to be found in the hollow area as well as a permanent addition to your team who can be recruited if you finish the Hollow Area before clearing the 100th floor in Aincrad!

The basic flow in Aincrad is to work your way to the tower on each floor and then clear the dungeon located in the tower. Finally you must defeat the floor boss before moving on to the next floor. The Hollow Area works a little different and actually flows more like a traditional modern JRPG's world map with interconnected fields and dungeons. You must gather key items and then beateach region's boss before moving on to the next area.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is nearly 100 hours in length  not including alot of the side-content so expect the game to last you months from start to finish, especially if you want to earn the platinum trophy for the game. The game is also PSTV compatible which is fantastic for those of you who want to play the game on the big-screen!



The game also features a new game plus which adds the ability to increase the levels of every monster in the game for added challenge! The game is easy enough for most players to beat relatively easy on the first playthrough, but increasing the levels of the enemies in the new game place will test even hardcore SAO players!

The controls are kind of hard to get used to as O is used as the confirmation button while X is used as the cancel button which is completely opposite of most games released in the US. Overall once you get used to the controls they're very good. A big flaw that the game has is its poor grammar. There are so many mistranslations in the game it's almost comical. Regardless it isn't completely illegible as you can easily guess what was actually supposed to be said in each scene, but it does hurt the game's overall score.



Visually the game looks incredible for a Vita game with gorgeous CG cut-scenes as well as visual novel style story-telling. The character and enemy models outside of the cut-scenes are great looking as well, though the environmental graphics are quite dated they're still pretty to look at.

The soundtrack as pretty good albeit somewhat forgettable, while the Japanese voice acting is fantastic. The only downside is that there isn't any option to use English voices in the game.



Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, an excellent story, and fantastic visuals Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is a superb game that any JRPG fan should enjoy, however a poor translation, confusing controls, and a forgettable soundtrack hold the game back from true greatness. Still at its $20 price on PSN it's well worth picking up. Anyways we give Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment a solid level of recommendation!

Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ Breath of The Wild (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Walk On The Wild Side!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a fantastic open-world adventure game that completely reinvents the franchise. And while it's an excellent title it feel like it's lost some of that Zelda magic. Despite this we still feel the game is one of the best titles in the franchise. Continue reading our review to find out why!



Breath of The Wild is an open-world adventure game and possesses a massive world with tons of secrets and hidden areas to explore and despite being much smaller in scale than Xenoblade Chronicles X, Nintendo did a fantastic job with the topography of the world in the game to make you truly feel like an explorer! This is the game's greatest strength, however it's also its greatest weakness as well since the game nearly does away with complex puzzle solving and dungeons in favor of smaller and easier shrines.

These mini dungeons number in the 100's, but are substantially simpler than a typical dungeon in the Zelda series. With the exception of this, however Breath of The Wild is a fantastic entry in the series and other aspects such as the story-telling as well as sidequests and pseudo guild quests are superb and will keep you entertained for many hours!



The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also the first game in the Zelda series to have full voice acting in most of the important story scenes which gives a breath of fresh air to the narrative of the game! The difficulty of the game is fairly easy for the most part, though it can become somewhat challenging at times. For those who want a challenge, there's a difficulty setting for that! The item scavenging and pet system are extremely rich and can make exploration extremely fun for completionists!

You can also cook and craft items in the game as well. This system is somewhat limited, but is enjoyable nonetheless! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also by far the longest game in the Zelda series clocking in at over 300 hours to complete one hundred percent!



The controls in the game a flawless and are a piece of cake to learn which is always a very good thing. The visuals in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild are absolutely gorgeous and even give Xenoblade Chronicles X a run for its money in-terms of the best looking Wii U games! The environments as well as the character/enemy models are intricately detailed and the Cel-Shading gives the game a breathtaking art-direction unlike anything we've ever seen before!

The soundtrack is also absolutely flawless with fully orchestrated dynamic tracks that not only fit the mood of the game, but also change in rhythm and tempo depending on what's happening around Link which adds to the game's atmosphere!



The Switch Difference:

Besides a slightly higher resolution and better frame rate on the Nintendo Switch version when docked both games are nearly identical. The only difference we can think of is that the Switch port has better textures and object models, but overall you'll have an amazing experience with the game regardless of which console you play it on!



Bottom-Line:

With an incredible story, superb gameplay, and flawless controls, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will draw any Wii U or Switch owners to the game while the unparalleled audio-visual presentation will keep players coming back time and time again. Honestly the only drawback that the game has is that it is too different from the other games in the series, however in-terms of open-world games, Breath of The Wild is in a league of its own which is why we give the game a perfect level of recommendation to any and all Switch and Wii U owners!
