I think there are ways to fix it that would benefit the industry rather than…

Unlike the first two games in the Dusk series, it feels like a departure from the usual gameplay since this game feels more like Mana Khemia 2since they replaced the time limit with a Life Task system. While there are some mixed reactions from the fans, here are my first impressions of the…

Last year, they made an idol simulator, which left a disappointing taste in my mouth.
