The obligatory bashing Let me get this out of the way: Final Fantasy: All the Bravest is a cheap cash-in that tarnishes its franchise name, developer/publisher Square-Enix (SE), and the economy of mobile titles. If you're looking for an article that harps on the negatives of the title, there are plenty of others out there.… Continue reading In defence of Final Fantasy: All the Bravest
The most difficult games to review – or talk about really – are the mediocre ones. They're titles that generally don't score high in traditional reviews and they're also not outright awful. Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is one of those mediocre games and one of the most disappointed titles I've ever played.

I'd promised myself that one day I'd Platinum it in order to get most out of the R1300 I spent on the Deluxe Editon, which included the incoherent Kingsglaive tie-in movie. Last night, I finally grabbed the last of the… Continue reading I finally Platinumed Final Fantasy XV and it’s still disappointing
For some reason, Cat Quest has never been on my radar. I first discovered the game late last year when I saw a physical copy, but it slipped my mind soon after. After watching the trailer for Cat Quest 2, I decided to pick up the first one, which was on sale on PSN. After… Continue reading Cat Quest is an adorable and fun RPG
After acquiring Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization (SAO:HR) last year, I have finally scratched the game from my backlog. To be more accurate, I gave up on the game at a meagre 59 hours in. Yes, that is a long time to realise I no longer want to play a title. What is Sword Art… Continue reading Shelved games: Why I gave up on Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization
