Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest Review (3DS)

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest is a turn by turn, grid based, strategy game with RPG elements. Part of a set of three, along with Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations; Fire Emblem Fates tells the story of a prince raised in the kingdom of Nohr, who learns that his true parents are those of the royal family of a rival nation called Hoshido. Faced with a choice, the young prince must choose to either help his foster family conquer Hoshido or join his birth family to defend against the invading Nohrian forces. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest shows the result of the young prince choosing to side with the family that raised him in Nohr, and is also considered the hardest of the three, and for a good reason. Will the young prince be victorious or will his conviction falter? That is something that only fate and a brilliant tactician can decide.

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Review (3DS)

After the success of Senran Kagura Burst (download only) in the US, XSEED Games decided to bring the sequel stateside. With Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, there is now a limited edition physical copy you can buy, or you can still buy it via download. There is also an anime series if the game isn’t enough for you to watch these shinobi warriors in action. So does Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson improve on what was needed from Senran Kagura Burst, or will you be too brainwashed by the fan service to notice?

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Review (3DS)

Originally on the Nintendo 64, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was the sequel to the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and the second 3D Zelda game. When the enhanced 3DS version was announced I was ecstatic to see the overhaul they could do, since the Ocarina of Time 3D remake was gorgeous and revitalized the game. The thing I was skeptical of was the Ocarina of Time 3D remake had given too many handouts. The Sheikah stones originally used for short little talks were turned into in-game tutorial segments for different parts of the game. My main concern going into The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D was, will it be better than its original?

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight Review (3DS)

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight for Nintendo 3DS is a remake of Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard for the Nintendo DS. Fortunately for me, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold was a brand new experience, since I had never played Etrian Odyssey II, or any other Etrian Odyssey game for that matter. How did this first-person dungeon crawling experience treat a new player to the Etrian Odyssey series?

Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure Review (3DS)

During a Nintendo Direct Mini before E3 2015, Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure was announced for North America after the game was previously announced in a Japanese Nintendo Direct. The Dr. Mario series have been known, to some, as a better version of Tetris since it involves matching colors instead of blocks. Throughout the years, the series appeared on most Nintendo consoles, heck, it even appeared as a crossover on the SNES as Tetris & Dr. Mario. With Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure, they decided to change the gameplay up to make it easier for newbies, while expert players can add more variety to their combos. Is this the cure fans of the series wanted, or will you just want to leave the doc for a more reliable one?
