Categories: Reviews, Switch

Even though practically every RPG out there promises an epic journey of exploration and discovery, very few of them accurately capture that feeling of uncovering a whole new world. With Ys VIII, however, developer Falcom has aimed to put that experience at the core of the game, and it’s pretty…

Video games are almost always about goals. Rescue the princess, wipe out a parasitic alien lifeform, defeat an ancient primeval beast that’s laid waste to the kingdom… Not every game’s goals are dramatic either — just look at Harvest Moon, or its modern Story of Seasons incarnations, where you build…
