‘Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight’ plots a mostly enjoyable course

The complexities of dungeon crawlers, such as those of Atlus’ Etrian Odyssey series, while appealing to longtime fans, can often intimidate potential new players who become glassy-eyed and lost at the first mention of status attacks, debuffs, and skill trees. Finding a way to introduce a franchise to a new audience while still maintaining the challenge and strategy that hardcore devotees require is a tricky feat, but one that Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight seems to have pulled off fairly well, give or take some nasty bosses. Who would’ve thought that meticulous mapmaking, collecting rocks, and managing a restaurant could be so fun? Oh, and fighting monsters, of course. That’s cool too.

‘Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker’ is one hell of a remake

Let’s get right down to it. If you like strategy games, RPGs, and anything in between and have never played Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, you should. If you have played SMT: DeSu 2 and you liked it, you should still pick up Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker, the enhanced 3DS remake of the 2009 DS title. Despite being a sequel and a remake, DeSu 2 RB has a lot to offer old fans and new comers alike and is exceptionally approachable to those unfamiliar with the franchise or even the genre.
