Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth Review (Spoiler-Free)

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth came out in Japan on November 29th, 2018, and on June 4th, 2019 for the rest of the world. It’s a sequel of sorts to Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, though the events of each game have no bearing on the other. Both take elements from the Etrian Odyssey series, namely dungeon crawling, and put elements from the Persona series alongside them.

Even though I didn’t love the first game, my excitement over Persona was enough to get me to pre-order Persona Q2. It made some nice improvements over the first game, but I’m beginning to think the dungeon crawling genre might not be my cup of tea. Read on to hear my full thoughts on the experience in this spoiler-free review!

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Review (Spoiler-Free)

I recently finished my first playthrough of the final Fire Emblem game released on the 3DS, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It employs a number of unique mechanics for the series, some I’d like to see again, and others that were interesting but I wouldn’t want to become series staples.

Here’s my spoiler-free review of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia!

Welcome back to another weekly wrap-up of the games I’ve been playing over the past week!

Despite having started Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia after Persona Q2, I finished Shadows of Valentia this week! I’d been playing more of Fire Emblem Echoes since picking it up than Persona Q2, so I suppose it’s not that surprising.
