Butlers and maids will be your new favorite Fire Emblem Fates class

I wasn’t going to marry Joker, also known as Jakob in Fire Emblem Fates, in Fire Emblem If. To be honest, I wasn’t sure who I was going to make my princess marry in the game. I only began playing it on June 24, 2015, and figured I’d get a feel for characters as I more »

Beyond Eyes didn’t surprise me

One of the most conceptually unique indie games at E3 2015 was Beyond Eyes, the story of a blind little girl who loses her cat and must leave the safety of her home to find it. I was as surprised as everyone else that a game like this was being made, but the entire concept more »

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Preview: Positive reflections

All of my experiences with the original Mirror’s Edge went badly. It takes a lot to make me motion sick, but the first game and Super Mario Galaxy are the only two titles to make my stomach flop. I’d attempt parkour, thing I’d make the jumps, somehow fail and feel mentally and physically horrible as more »

Fire Emblem Fates’ avatar customization is impressive

Fire Emblem Fates’ avatar customization is impressive Like Fire Emblem Awakening, Fire Emblem Fates allows a player to adjust their avatar to their liking. This time, however, it goes beyond two female options and two male options, though. Instead, Fates takes a cue from BioWare and Bethesda games, allowing people far more control over their more »

Unravel Preview: Yarny is adorable, but Unravel is far from it

Yarny, the protagonist of Coldwood Interactive’s upcoming platformer Unravel, is an endearing little fellow made entirely of yarn. He lives in a world of moss and buttons and puddles, and looks just like the kind of plucky little guy who could lift your spirits. In Unravel, though, Yarny is put through the wringer, and so are your more »

Technology Tell Gaming Channel’s most notable E3 2015 opinions

Oh man, E3 2015, everybody. This was a big year. There were a lot of games available to play, and Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel had six people on the ground experiencing as many as possible. Since it wouldn’t really be “fair” to decide on one or two games as the most notable this year, we’re more »

Legend of Legacy Preview: Garnet goes “god” hunting

The 3DS has become quite a haven for RPG, and Legend of Legacy is another to bolster the library. With a presentation that compliments Square Enix’s Bravely Default, Atlus and FuRyu’s title fits right in. Think of it as another digital fairy tale, with subdued tones, fanciful characters and a world that springs to life more »

Virtuix Omni & TRAVR Preview: Natural movements allow deeper immersion

Not only did I get to test out some of the hottest virtual reality headsets coming up on the market at E3 2015, I also tried a peripheral for the virtual reality experience – the Virtuix Omni. It’s touted as a “first-of-its-kind” virtual reality gaming platform, and my hands on experience had me jumping on more »

Dungeon Travelers 2 immediately dumps fanservice on players

I know I’m not going to play Dungeon Travelers 2 after its released. As much as I love Atlus games and JRPGs, it doesn’t catch my interest. Still, I was at E3 2015, a playable demo was there, and it only seemed right that I give it a try. I expected a quick look through more »

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is everything I remember from childhood

For a variety of reasons, I spent a lot of time in hotels when I was growing up. They were always the nicer hotels, the ones with pools and “entertainment rooms” that would have a few arcade games and maybe a pool table. By and large, I never had the disposable income to drop a more »
