Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore First Impressions

It feels a little weird writing a first impressions piece of a port of a game that I already wrote a twelve part series on. That being said, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE might be my favorite JRPG of all time, and I was super excited to get back in and see what new features were added. So far, I’ve played a little over eight hours of the game and I’ve only found a couple minimal new things, which is unfortunate, but I’m still having a really good time. Continue reading

The January Nintendo Direct: Predicting An Event That Hasn’t Been Announced Yet

There will be a Nintendo Direct this month. I mean, they haven’t actually said that they’re going to, but they are. It just makes sense. We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of their Nintendo Switch event, which basically spelled out their plans for 2017.

But what will be shown, and more importantly, what do I want to be shown?

My Ten Favorite Games Of 2016

2016 was a pretty good year for video games. Unfortunately, I didn’t have nearly as much disposable income to buy games as I had in years past, and the end result is that a lot of the biggest games of the year, I haven’t played. I also, don’t own a PlayStation 4, so I haven’t played games like Uncharted 4 or The Last Guardian. But, I was still able to come up with a list of ten games that I played this year. It’s probably pretty different from most of the lists you’ve seen on other sites. Continue reading

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Check-in: Week 9

I didn’t have a whole ton of time to play Tokyo Mirage Sessions this week. I only got about two hours of playtime in.
