PAX West 2016 Impressions: Final Fantasy XV

Recently, Square Enix released a 52-minute gameplay video of the Master Version of Final Fantasy XV showcasing the game’s opening chapters. In all, the 60-minute features Chocobo racing, new monsters, side quests, equipment, ability and magic synthesis systems, and the Wait Mode. At PAX West, we were invited to participate in a 1-hour hands-on demo on PlayStation 4. From what I can say, the game has been improved, but for better or worse?

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward (3DS) Review

Like the other Style Savvy games, in Fashion Forward, the player becomes a manager of a boutique through magical means. The aesthetics of this game is very feminine, but at the same time, I don’t think that is all it has to offer. Taking away the girly elements, this game is a simulation game - managing stock and inventory of the store, attending to customer needs, and of course, withholding the reputation of a fashionista and top designer in a fictitious city. New to this franchise, Fashion Forward, there are other things to do than selling clothes. Become a makeup artist! A hair stylist! A room designer and even a model!

PAX West 2016 Impressions: Dragon Quest Builders

Among the games that I played at PAX West this year, one of the notable ones that I would like to talk about is Dragon Quest Builders from Square Enix. This game caught my eye once I noticed it has elements of crafting and the beloved enemies from the Dragon Quest series. Your character, the Savior, is woken up by a goddess inside a crypt with no memories and is told that humans of this world have lost the ability of creating. A back story follows and it leads her into teaching you the basic controls, how to gather, craft and create.
