If you’ve been keeping up with my weekly wrap-up posts, you know that I’ve recently gotten into Smite on PS4 in an attempt to battle my social anxiety. I’ve been playing around with the various freebies and rental gods over the last week or so, mostly enjoying Ra and Medusa, but man… Smite has a LOT of characters to pick from. A lot of characters that take a lot of time and a lot of in-game currency to buy.
The folks at NIS America were kind enough to send me a physical copy of Anima: Gate of Memories to review on PS4, but what I didn’t expect is that it would be the Beyond Fantasy Edition. So, again, to be clear, this was provided by NIS America for the purpose of a review.
