Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS)

Domestic Bliss

When Rune Factory developer Neverland sadly shut up shop in 2013, there was still one project left on the table - a brand new story-driven SRPG named Lord of Magna.

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Update Tackles the Important Stuff, Like Fido's "Naughty Habits"

Out now in North America

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley was a divisive 3DS entry in the franchise, with some opinion that Natsume's attempts at modernising and evolving the series weren't a success; for our part we considered it to be below par. In any case, it'll have its fans, and around eight months after its release Natsume has issued an update...

Review: G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! (DSiWare)

G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! (DSiWare)

Rock solid

The next title to look at in the G.G series is yet another action platformer, but it manages to feel distinct from the others in more ways than one. Unlike every G.G game up to this point, G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! focuses less on being an arcade-focused game best suited for quick playthroughs, and more on being an experience that...
