It’s time to check out Ni no Kuni II, a good game that sadly lives in the shadow of its excellent original.

I just discovered your website due to a post about you being attacked by hordes of angry zelda fans due to your breath of the wild review.

OR People from that region are required (by law) to be as expressive and interesting as possible. I can think of bad voice work, I can’t think of expressionless voice work like some of the effort produced here in the States. Regardless, your video reminded me that Dragon Quest 11… Read more »
