Looks like its that time of the year already.

It’s my favorite time of the year! I get the chance to recollect my thoughts on my favorite games of the year. 2016 brought me new experiences I never thought I would enjoy and it brought even more JRPG’s to play. Sadly though, my school work took a toll on my free time this year meaning I missed out on many games I know I would enjoy like Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4. Other’s I got to play partially, but never completed. For those games I offer my honorable mentions. Well, 2016 seemed like a good time to be a gamer and here’s hoping 2017 brings in the goods, especially Nintendo with their latest piece of hardware. Happy holidays!
It’s not a dream, well, let’s hope not. Final Fantasy XV has finally released after a decade long wait (for some of us). Square Enix released Final Fantasy XV for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles yesterday and it was worth the wait. Read ahead the pro’s and con’s to what could potentially be a contender for game of the year.

The special Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo just released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop to download for free. Should you bother downloading this so-called “special demo” or should you skip it and never look back? Find out on my latest “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” installment.
Paper Mario Color Splash released last Friday and I finally got around to playing the first few hours of the game. Does the game deserve the early hate it received or am I finally going to enjoy my first Paper Mario experience? Read on for my impressions on what might be the most charming game I’ve played all year.
With the release of Dark Souls 3’s DLC in the near future, it’s safe to say the same crowd asking for an easy mode may be back again to voice their concern. As we all know though, an Easy mode never really came and assuredly won’t. However, I do believe the Dark Souls series does offer a form of an easy mode. Although, it might not be clear to many people.
Spin-off titles of beloved franchises is not a new idea in gaming. The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, to even Halo have received the dreaded spin-off treatment; however, people tend to love them. When Metroid Prime: Federation Force was announced I hated the thought of receiving a new Metroid title without our favorite bounty hunter, Samus Aran, helming the new journey due to lack of new titles of the franchise. The more I played Federation Force, the more I noticed how good it actually is.
