Are you ready to mix ingredients, participate in arduous battles, and work for a living (what?)? Then get ready to join Escha and Logy as they become new alchemists and learn to work together at their new jobs. This one is an enhanced remake of Atelier Escha & Logy ~Alchemists of the Dusk Sky~, which we reviewed a few years ago, so we’re sure you’re wondering “what did you think of this enhanced re-release?” Well, read below to find out!
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is a new Japanese-RPG from Nihon Falcom and has been localized by XSEED, the same studio who gave us the excellent Action-RPG Ys series, and who also released Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter just a few weeks ago.
Trails games usually come in trilogies, and this is also the case for the game we’re about to review. Cold Steel is the first in this new trilogy, and thankfully the localization for Cold Steel II has already been confirmed. Cold Steel III production has just begun in Japan, which is great news, but that means it will take at least another year before we see it. It is also worth noting that any The Legend of Heroes sub-series can be played in any order (Trails in the Sky is one story, Trails of Cold Steel is another one) so you won’t miss out on any details by starting one before the other!
This is my first Double Review, and I was pretty excited to do it for a game like Trails of Cold Steel which I’ve been waiting for a while now. If you like long JRPGs, then sit back and enjoy this review!
Submerged is an exploration game in which you follow Miku and her brother after their arrival in a flooded city. We were very excited to play this game after watching its reveal trailer, and we weren’t disappointed by Submerged, its gameplay and its gorgeous city exploration!
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation is an enhanced remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory which was released on the Playstation 3 back in 2013. This game is a follow-up to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation, and features a new take on the world of Gameindustri when times were simpler and different!
Just in case this is the first time you’ve heard of either Hyperdimension Neptunia or “Gamindustri”, take note that “Gamindustri” is a parody of our own video game industry (Planeptune is for SEGA, Lowee is for Nintendo, Lastation is for PlayStation and Leanbox is for Xbox). The Hyperdimension Neptunia series doesn’t take itself too seriously, and conversations often lead to very funny cut-scenes (that’s the strength of the franchise)!
So what did we think of this third Hyperdimension Neptunia Vita release? Read below to find out!
