Media, Marketing, Reviews, Interviews, and more. I do terrible things so you don’t have to.

Doing LIVE coverage of E3 to Tokyo Game Show for the last 10 years.

    Wonder what the release schedule for this one will ultimately turn out to be like, given that last year’s show implied a day and date Switch port (possibly one that’s releasing earlier, even).

  • If this comes to PC I would buy it day one.

    Of all the games to get sequels, I really never expected NnK. I thought it was really bad (and that’s coming from someone who finished it anyway).

    If they make a less terrible… uh, everything, it could be alright. Redo the repetitive music, don’t make monsters reset levels (and heavily rebalance all the ally monsters), make non-monster party members do something useful in battle alongside monsters, make endgame content less of a horrible meaningless grind, or at least make the reward for it all something not fucking shit like a useless car that honks

    Still need to play the first.

    Surprised they changed the combat (normal combat instead of Monster summoning). I keep saying I liked the first game- but I’ve not exactly rushed back to finish it. (Maybe I’m playing wrong, trying to raise one of everything instead of sticking with a reliable party). I hope this does improve because the games visuals and music was beautiful.

  • Still Here

    It’s funny after they first announced the game I could not care less about it. That is because all I could think about was the original’s meh combat with terrible AI. Seeing this change has got me a lot more interested since I did like both the art style and story of the first.

  • Maria Maasaa

    I never had a problem with the AI. But then again I controlled Swaine in every battle.

  • Juan Pablo Fernandez

    DS version is the real one, PS3 was heavily butchered on game mechanics and story.

  • Guin

    So is this Evan a trap?
