I’m Kinglink and it’s almost turkey day here in America, so it’s time for the Game Pass November 2022 Review.
This one is a bit late but, as you’ll see in the lists of games, I wanted to cover Pentiment and that came out on the 15th. The good news is I have that and many others, so we talk about all of these titles, and even give a hint of what’s coming up, but that’s for later.
Normally I play only the PC games, but give me a moment here, and let me call out Vampire Survivors, I’ve covered it previously on the series, and I remember I said you should buy it even if it’s on Game Pass. It’s 5 dollars on Xbox and I still believe that it’s worth it. It’s a lot of fun, so console gamers, you have the chance, check that game out, I will guarantee you’ll enjoy it, and good luck hunting me down if you don’t.
This month I haven’t played all of these games as much. While I do sit down with these titles for a night, quite a few of them are games I’ve played previously, or stopped for various reasons, we’ll get into the why when applicable, but I have had some great experiences, let’s start with what’s on the screen, perhaps the biggest release of the month.
Evoland: Legendary Edition is a compilation of two games called Evoland and Evoland 2. They are both by Shiro Games and the Legendary edition just combines them into a single executable. As such, I’ll talk about each game individually and review both games and combine them for the full package’s final score.
Evoland is a parody of the RPG genre while remaining true to that formula at the same time. It’s a rather hard game to review because it does so many things but quickly evolves away from most of them before they grow stale.
Hello, I’m Kinglink and this week we’re doing a Design Review on Persona 4 Golden.
If you’re new to the channel, this is a design review. Rather than just saying the graphics, story, and gameplay are good and assigning an arbitrary score to the game, I look deeper at the gameplay systems and try to analyze what works and could be improved on in a game, usually using examples. Persona 4 Golden though is a massive game so there’s a lot to talk about with just it so I’m going to mostly focus on this one game this week.
Hello, I’m Kinglink and today let’s do a design review on Ni No Kuni 2, which is one of the most impressive Japanese RPGs I’ve played in a very long time, possibly for the entirety of this console generation.
As always rather than just review the game we’re going to focus more on why Ni No Kuni 2 stands out and what it does that elevates it above other games in its genre. That genre is Japanese RPGs or JRPGs and they become kind of standard fare, they’ve been around since the 80s and most stick to the same tropes.
