Hey, Kaushik here to offer an opinion on one of the coolest new video games to hit the 3DS. This time it’s Bravely Default, a Japanese RPG that has been long-anticipated in the West by some of the more hardcore RPG fans. Developed by both Square Enix and Silicon Studios, Bravely Default is a more traditional RPG than some of the titles Square Enix has been putting out lately. The title is highly reminiscent of Final Fantasy 5 in terms game systems, particularly the Job system and only 4 playable characters. It hit Western shores just recently, and I have been playing it as much as my time would allow. Let’s find out some more~

Hey, Kaushik here. I recently had the opportunity to play a really excellent older game the other day, and I’m excited to share it with you all! The game is titled Gimmick!, and was only released in Japan (1992) and Scandinavia (1993) on the Famicom. It was later released on the Playstation in 2002, only in Japan. The game was produced by Sunsoft. To find a cart of this game is exceedingly rare and can run several hundred dollars. It’s hard to say that it’s worth the price, but if you find some way to play it, I strongly recommend you do. But that’s enough background, let’s get into the game proper~
