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?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Although this is undoubtedly the biggest week in gaming, I haven't actually gotten around to doing much of it.

Developer 10tons Ltd. has been rabidly supporting the Nintendo Switch, but it's safe to say that originality isn't their strong suit. Recently, they've put forth a slew of top-down twin-stick shooters in JYDGE, Time Recoil, Neon Chrome, and Crimsonland.
