Bravely Default II Review

Bravely Default II is one of the best JRPGs that I have played in a while. Despite that though, there were a few hang-ups that I believe held it back a bit. Its beautiful watercolor art style was sometimes diminished by its underperforming graphics. And although I enjoyed every single battle in this game, I… Continue reading Bravely Default II Review

Pokémon Sword and Shield Review

The game is a refinement of Ubisoft’s AnvilNext 2.0 engine, and a wonderful take on the ‘Viking’ time period. For Starters, I am not a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed series as a whole.  I… Continue reading Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Review
