Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Preview: Let’s go on a Picnic

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Preview: Let’s go on a Picnic

etrian odyssey 2 untold a
The 3DS retellings of Etrian Odyssey are unique not only because they give a sense of structure in the form of a defined stories and precreated characters, but also because they take
substantial steps to make the series more accessible to people who would find the games too punishing otherwise. Thus people too put off by Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard may find
Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight far more inviting.

At least, that’s my takeaway after about 10 hours with the game. Since everyone is familiar with the standard difficulty of the series, I thought it best to approach Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold
with the new Picnic mode. It’s the easiest of the easy, but not exactly the simplest of the simple. My takeaway thus far is that going on a Picnic means characters are slightly more powerful than
usual and there’s less need to grind.

For example, my team reached level five without any effort. I want to say that milestone was hit…

Lego Jurassic World Review: Cashing in

Lego Jurassic World
Price: $59.99

Release Date: Month Date, Year
Publisher (Developer): Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (Traveller’s Tales)
ESRB Rating: “Everyone 10+” for Cartoon Violence and Crude Humor

Given the 14 year gap between Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World, it’s easy to forget the Michael Crichton was once such an extended series. Most people tend to focus on the
original, and the passage of time has turned them into a “nineties” thing. But there is a storied history here and surprising depth of lore, with Jurassic World revitalizing interest in it.
Fortunately, people can take to Lego Jurassic World to act as a competant, if buggy, refresher.

Lego Jurassic World is a humorous and lighthearted recounting of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. The most

Jet Set Radio tags its 15th anniversary

JSR header jet set radio
Jet Set Radio is a game remembered fondly by many a Sega fan for its slick artstyle, gameplay and futuristic setting. It’s no surprise, that fifteen years after the game’s release, fans of
JSR’s composer, Hideki Naganuma, praise him daily on Twitter. Crossover fanart with games as recent as Splatoon can be found easily, and official Jet Set Radio
merchandise is frequently out of stock on official retail sites.

Shantae: Half Genie Hero Preview: Shantae shows her moves

shantae half genie hero
Shantae Half Genie Hero appears to be coming along nicely. WayForward provided a preview build featuring three playable levels to early-access level Kickstarter backers. The demo is brief,
and specifically adjusted to avoid any possible spoilers, but its contents are solid.

Shantae Half Genie Hero will feature platforming action as the titular Shantae runs, jumps, whips at obstacles with her hair, and dances to transform into different creatures with their own
sets of abilities.

Before going into detail of the three, distinct levels that it features, I want to mention that screenshots don’t do the demo justice. The visual effects and music already in place for Shantae
Half Genie Hero
are excellent in their current state. Even the title screen features nice atmospheric effects with the sun occasionally obscured by the passing clouds, and sitting through the

You Must Build a Boat Review: Wet, wild fun

You Must Build a Boat Review: Wet, wild fun

You Must Build a Boat
Price: $4.99
System(s): PC (Also available on Android and iOS)
Release Date: Month Date, Year
Publisher (Developer): EightyEightGames (EightyEightGames)
ESRB Rating: N/A

Match-3 games tend to be a guilty pleasure. The problem is, it’s difficult to find one that really stands apart. Distinctive endeavors are difficult to find, given how hard it is to improve on the
Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest formulas. Yet, EightyEightGames did it once with 10000000, and now has done it again with You Must Build a Boat.

you must build a boat 1

Taking to the seas.

One begins You Must Build a Boat knowing they must travel from point A to point B. Why? No one knows. There are two monster allies on board a dinghy, which is barely seaworthy, and there’s
no option but to head into dungeons, hoping to make enough headway to unlock gold and additional areas, which will in turn make for a larger boat more capable of reaching additional areas.

Going through dungeons is what makes it possible to…

Eitr Preview: Expect great things

Eitr Preview: Expect great things

eitr
I’m looking forward to Eitr, and you should be as well.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Eitr’s indie developers during E3 2015. Their prior meeting ran late, as did mine, for reasons I would come to understand through meeting them. Eneme
Entertainment is comprised of two people, artist and designer David Wright and coder and developer Tobi Harper. The pair greeted me and welcomed me into their space, controller in hand. They were
happy to show off their project not as professionals making a pitch, but as gaming enthusiasts. I would have been happy to hang out with them well beyond our allotted time.

eitr

Eitr is an isometric hack ‘n slash with a look and feel familiar to veterans of the older Diablo titles. Its story is set in Norse mythology. When the god Loki interfered with the
weaving of her fate, the Shield Maiden became the only one of her people unaffected by the titular poison, eitr, that threatens the nine Norse worlds. She must face corrupted terrors to discover
her fate and, hopefully, reverse the damage to the lands and to her people.

As the pair…

Project X Zone 2 Interview: Kensuke Tsukanaka talked about the SRPG at E3

Project X Zone 2 Interview: Kensuke Tsukanaka talked about the SRPG at E3

project x zone 2During E3 2015, I had the opportunity to sit down with Kensuke
Tsukanaka, Production 2 Chief at Bandai Namco, about the upcoming release of Project X Zone 2 for the 3DS. Mr. Tsukanaka, who fielded my questions through a translator, gave me the scoop on
the crossover game that combines a cast of characters from three separate companies: Bandai Namco, SEGA and Capcom, and the difficulties that can arise from such an undertaking.

Project X Zone 2, like the original game released in the US in 2012, is described by its creator as a “crossover traditional RPG.” Battles are executed with a “paired combo focus” where
teammates juggle opponents with their signature techniques and call in assistance from nearby allies. Characters move across a grid during their turns, and I found that the process has been
streamlined in the bit of hands-on time I had with the game afterward.

project x zone 2

I asked how difficult it is to make a game with so wide a reach as Project X Zone 2. Mr. Tsukanaka explained that drawing from so many different games, different systems, and different
engines, the big question was how to do it. He had to make sure the game would meet fans’ demands. With so many beloved characters, as he described them, they had to be…
