Fire Emblem Heroes (iOS and Android) [Review]

0

A brand new Fire Emblem on your phone? With Fire Emblem Heroes it’s more likely than you’d think. Nintendo’s recent venture into the world of mobile gaming has been a rocky start at best. Miitomo, while a fun time waster, lacked any sort of depth (or really an actual game for that matter), and Super Mario Run, while being a perfectly tuned Super Mario game for mobile devices, irked people with its relatively steep price and meager amount of content. The Big N (do people still call it that? Probably not, but how about we entertain my personal fantasy that I’m writing for an early 2000s GamePro) is returning to the App Store of your choice, and this time with a franchise that has only recently gained a worldwide fan base (in thanks to the excellent Awakening and Fates on the 3DS), Fire Emblem. Does Nintendo’s landmark turn-based strategy game make the transition onto your iPhone (or Android-equipped device)? Come with me, young hero, and I will spin you a tale of anime swordsmen and single screen,┬áturn-based adventure.

Yakuza 0 (PS4) [Review]

0

The Yakuza series is a long running franchise from SEGA with at least 6 other titles under its belt at this point, all with its own continuing lore– a non-stop, hard-hitting, martial arts soap opera all about Japan’s Yakuza criminal underworld. This time though, we’ve got a prequel– where we’re going all the way back to 1980s Japan during its huge economic boom– and learning the origins of series hero, Kazuma Kiryu as well as well the reoccurring character Goro Majima. Sounds like a lot, huh? Well, luckily for you, Yakuza 0 is the perfect place for a series newcomer to drop in. The question is, is it worth it? Follow me, dear reader, across the jump to find out.
