Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Shortly after last weekend's wrap-up, I completed Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom on PS4. It was an incredibly well-made JRPG with an enjoyable action combat system, colorful world, a rewarding kingdom building mini-game, and storybook fantasy narrative. The final chapters did address last week's concerns about the game's lack … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?
