Ys Origin Review – Dungeons, Demons, Ys Oh My! (PS4)

The Ys games have a rich history in action-JRPGs, starring the silent protagonist Adol Christin as he travels across various regions across the world, including Ys. Ys Origin has none of that. Instead, the origin story explains many of the mysteries of the Ys titles, such as the demon influx, how the Darm Tower came to be, as well as the history behind the twin goddesses, the Black Pearl, and the Six Priests. It’s meant to fill in any blanks for Ys fans who want to know more about the history of the people of Ys and round out Adol’s adventures in the first two Ys games. That said, however, like most origin stories, Ys Origin doesn’t bring a lot to the table in terms of a typical Ys game. It’s not nearly as lengthy as the other games, simply because there’s zero exploration to be had. The entire game takes place in the infamous Darm Tower, and thus, it’s a series of consecutive dungeon crawls with nothing in between them. There are no side quests, no time to explore, no real crafting system; there’s virtually nothing to distract you from the monotony of running through dungeon after dungeon. Each dungeon has variety to be sure, but the pattern is…

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review — A Frighteningly Good Time

Sometimes wonderful things come in small packages. A great example of this is Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure. Launching as an eShop exclusive at a budget price point and without much fanfare, one could be forgiven for assuming the Nintendo 3DS port of Nihon Falcom’s 2004 PC title was just tepid shovelware. Yet to make such an assumption would be a terrible disservice to Gurumin, which unfolds to reveal a surprisingly compelling and charming game-play formula. Though it has appeared before on the PC and the PSP, Gurumin feels truly at home on a Nintendo platform, thanks in equal parts to its cartoony charms and the clear influence of some classic Nintendo IP on its game design. Our heroine is Parin, a spunky young red headed girl who is sent to stay with her grandfather while her excavator/adventurer parents travel the world in search of excitement. Parin will have no shortage of her own excitement though, and it becomes clear quite quickly as she is introduced to friendly monsters. She hasn’t time for many pleasantries with her no friends though, because their home, Monster Village, is in ruins following an assault from the nefarious Phantom Prince and his cohorts. Parin’s adventure is…
