When I was a kid, I saved my allowance to get my hands on a pre-owned copy of Star Ocean: The Second Story. I had no clue why it was the “second story,” as I had never seen its predecessor anywhere, but I knew I had to have it. The PSX dream combo of sprites and 3D backgrounds brought to life a unique space-opera-at-the-corner-of-high-fantasy setting that fascinated my young mind. Swirl together the charming anime artwork with a battle system that felt somewhere between Tales and Grandia and I knew I had to have it.
We’ve taken a few weeks off, but better late than never. It’s Mobile Monday! Today we’ll take a look at what might be my all-time favorite gacha title — Granblue Fantasy.
Well, the weekend has passed us by yet again – it’s Mobile Monday!
Today’s write-up is on miHoYo’s fast-paced character action game, Honkai Impact 3rd. Quite unlike the games we’ve featured thus far, HI3 (as we’ll call it for ease) is a 3rd-person hack-n-slasher drawing comparisons to games like Bayonetta and Devil May Cry. While I can’t argue it’s on the same level as any of those, I certainly see the similarities. HI3 is, sans mobile ports and emulation, about as close to a “console experience” as you can get on your smartphone.
A week has passed and it’s Mobile Monday once again! If you’ve been following our Twitter feed at all over the past week, you probably have an idea of what we’ll be focusing on today. That’s right, today we’re talking about Girls’ Frontline.
Mobile Monday is a weekly column dedicated to mobile gaming. Yes, it’s a catchy title, but I swear there’s more to it than that! Monday is often the most dreaded day of the week. If you’re anything like me, though, you’re spending some of that office downtime farming loot in your favorite gacha game. With that in mind, we’ll be featuring one game weekly, while also giving a few quick updates on other popular titles.
