So let’s talk about Mighty No. 9: I think the stale taste has left everybody’s mouths by now. To put it simply, that game was a disaster with so much potential to be great.

The sad decline of the Mana series has been difficult to watch, and it’s equally unfortunate that its spiritual successor Ever Oasis suffers from similar problems—solid action RPG mechanics and moments of creative brilliance hampered by an experimental gameplay structure that drags everything down with it. Ever Oasis is the latest 3DS collaboration between Nintendo and development studio Grezzo, which also created the remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask for Nintendo’s portable. Grezzo’s president is Koichi Ishii, who created the Mana series at Square, then produced the series until his 2007 departure. So it’s not too surprising that Grezzo’s first big 3DS adventure is pretty damned Mana-like, for better or worse. In one sense, it’s a fairly formal action role-playing game: Venture out into the world, find cute creatures, and hack and slash them to death. Your chances of victory in these battles is determined somewhat by your skill at twitch action but mostly by grinding, leveling up, and finding better equipment. The game’s two major phases are dungeon hacking (L) and oasis-building (R). Here’s the twist: Kind of like Majora’s Mask, the game’s world is centered on a single hub town, the eponymous oasis, which serves as…

Runbow is one of those zany games that sounds entirely unfun on paper, until you try it. Seriously, check out the above trailer for Runbow Deluxe if you’re unfamiliar with the game. 13AM Games has been working on Runbow Pocket since last year’s E3 announcement and today they’ve finally revealed that it’ll be hitting Nintendo 3DS on June 20th. However, that’s not the most exciting news in the announcement by far. The team here at 13AM Games are hard at work on their next project… A brand new IP for a totally new game coming to Nintendo Switch! We can’t share many details yet, but we can assure you that it’s quite a different game from Runbow, but still distinctly “13AM.” It’s an action game, it’s single player, and it’s a bit… weird. Good weird, though. We look forward to sharing more details with you soon! I was pleasantly surprised by how fun Runbow was with my little group of friends, so I’m eagerly anticipating what they’re working on next with the Switch in mind. It will be interesting to see them create a game that’s single-player focused now that Runbow is out of their system. READ FULL STORY AT…

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is the newest installment in the popular tactics game series. Whether you’re a fresh faced rookie or a war weary strategist, there’s a few things you should know if you want to conquer the battlefield. Choose Your Difficulty Level Wisely You can pick one of two difficulty levels as well as play with or without permadeath. I recommend hard mode, which ups the stakes a little bit. Fire Emblem Echoes is already a tricky game but the added difficulty makes for far more interesting battles. It’s Okay To Play In Casual Mode One of Fire Emblem’s big hooks is that allies that die on the battlefield stay dead. This is my preferred way to play and I highly recommend it. If that seems a bit daunting though, it’s perfectly fine to play in Casual Mode, where your units simply retreat. Choose what’s most fun for you and your personal tastes. The important thing is to enjoy yourself. Don’t Forget About Mila’s Turnwheel No matter what mode and difficulty you are playing on, you will have access to Mila’s Turnwheel. This magical item allows you to rewind your actions if you make READ FULL STORY…
