Domobics with TPDomo FAN EXPERIENCE @ J-POP SUMMIT 2016 stars

Domo-kun has had a long history, as the mascot of the Japanese broadcast company NHK, and behind his large, saw-toothed mouth, there’s something endearing about this brown, open-mouth monster. During this year’s J-POP SUMMIT, the NHK mascot collaborated with the idol group Tokyo Performance Doll, forming a new unit called “TPDomo”. Making their American debut, Tokyo Performance Doll (TPD),  kicked off J-POP SUMMIT at Fort Mason Center on the main stage with a fun and energetic five-minute workout called “Domobics” at 11:00am on both days. 

Grand Kingdom (PS4) Review stars

Grand Kingdom tells the tale of Resonail, a continent which consists of four nations at war over the fallen Empire of Uldein. The story is delivered via voice-acted comic book-esque cutscenes where players engage in turn-based battles. Delivered by lead designer Tomohiko Deguchi, Grand Kingdom takes inspiration from many of my favorite like minded games in the genre – think Fire Emblem or Valkyria Chronicles or even Odin Sphere – but it also shakes things up to keep the experience unique. 

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force (PS4) Review stars

Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? I am happy to report that Idea Factory has brought Fairy Fencer F, a PlayStation 3 game, to PlayStation 4 in the form of Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force. It’s as much fun on PS4 as it was on PS3, whether it is a replay, or jumping in for the first time. Sure, a port may not have been necessary, but then again, the developers at Compile Heart went to great lengths and have implemented changes by adding a new twist with different story arcs, more challenging battles, and multiple endings.

God Eater: Resurrection (PS4) Review stars

God Eater: Resurrection is an action role-playing game, delivered by Director and Producer Hiroshi Yoshimura and Yosuke Tomizawa, it takes inspiration from like minded games in the genre – think Monster Hunter or Freedom Wars – but it also does some unique things that help keep it fresh. While it can occasionally bog down in sheer repetition and the rampant overuse of monsters and maps, there’s something inherently and undeniably addicting about God Eater: Resurrection.
