Reviews & Mini Views
Persona 4 Gold ($19.99)
I mean agree. I will do that. If this is not a full year out of five, what is? When character 3 as much as it takes in the transition from PlayStation 2 to PlayStation Portable, character 4His leap from PlayStation 2 to PlayStation Vita is amazing. It has everything the original game had, plus more. And not only does it not have to compromise the visual presentation in the process, but it can actually improve it. This Switch version uses Vita Persona 4 Gold as a base, upgrade and upgrade the graphics where possible, add an option to choose between English and Japanese voices, include more detailed difficulty options, and include the much-welcomed quick save feature . It was a complete victory.
In general, the gameplay of character 4 similar to that of character 3. During the day, you will do normal teenage things like going to school, hanging out with friends, and studying. At night, you’ll explore dungeons and engage in turn-based battles against evil creatures with the power of Persona. How you want to spend your time each day is largely up to you, and it’s important to make the most of it. You have to decide if you want to spend more time building relationships or fighting evil, but whichever you choose, you’ll have to overcome obstacles at set points on the calendar.
In the specifics, there are a lot of differences between the previous game and this one. The setting is in the countryside rather than the big city, which in itself sets a different mood. When character 3 finds you trying to explore the massive dungeons of Tartarus to get to the bottom of a mysterious mind-destroying phenomenon, character 4 You are trying to solve a series of murder mysteries. The main link between them seems to be the television, and you’ll soon find yourself venturing into the TV World to battle hordes of evil demons and monsters. Instead of exploring one large dungeon, you are dealing with many smaller dungeons, each with its own theme. I’ve heard people say that if character 3 To be Buffy the vampire slayerafterward character 4 To be Scooby-DooAnd I really can’t argue with that.
Like its predecessor and direct successor, character 4 is a special JRPG experience. The low-pressure relationship and time management side of the game blends in perfectly with the role-playing parts, playing together in ways that make sense and bring out the best in both. Pursuing social connections with characters not only rewards you with some satisfying mini-story, but also strengthens you in the role-playing aspect. The overall plot is great, and the characters in this game really stand out. There are some character aspects that are perhaps not as successful as one would expect, but overall, it’s hard not to stick with this eccentric group. People tend to love these characters more than others personality game, and that’s not for nothing.
The game also holds everything up. Although it’s up to you whether you like it character 3single giant dungeon or character 4There are many smaller dungeons, it’s hard to deny that the latter has more personality. I think so, too character 4 there’s a slightly tougher curve, but that’s possible only because character 3 train me well. By default, it’s a relatively difficult task that forces you to really use your brain a bit in battles and prepare well for boss battles, but there are a lot of tweaks and transformations in this version you can make it easy or hard as you like. you want it to be. The core loop of leveling up, merging, and gradually building a strong group of Persona to use is also a winner.
Persona 4 Gold is absolutely shining in this Switch port, and it’s already a truly stellar game that any fan of the genre should play. The fact that you can get such a great RPG for such a low price is a myth, and character 4 always a great game to enjoy on mobile. If you’ve played through it on Vita, I’m not sure you’ll find enough here to make it any more worthwhile, but if this is your first time following the Midnight Channel, the Switch version is a great way to go. to experience it.
SwitchArcade Score: 5/5
Void Prison ($2.99)
Void prison feels very similar to the kind of fun mobile games we used to see in the glory days of iOS. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and while it doesn’t make a lasting impression, it’ll be your best friend for a week or so. You are in a circular arena with a lot of unfriendly enemies that are teleporting in increasing numbers. You have a gun that you can shoot in any direction with the right stick and you can roll. You can get occasional powerups. Oh, and the enemy can’t hurt you. They can only push you backwards. Take a bullet, bump. Run into an enemy, collide. But if you touch the outer edge of the arena, you raise a toast. The goal is to last as long as possible. The longer you survive, the higher you rank in the online leaderboards and the more skins and powers you’ll unlock. That’s all it takes, and I mean it.
It’s a fun game to play, but after a while it gets repetitive because very little changes from session to session. There are not many variables in the game Void prisonand the ones here feel a bit more random than I’d like. You can do everything right just for the enemy to appear next to where you are and knock you out without any recourse. Void prison best enjoyed as a snack here and there, a few times at a time. With that ability, it certainly earned its meager amount.
SwitchArcade Score: 3.5/5
Motorcycle mechanic simulator 2021 ($19.99)
Let me start this review by saying that if you enjoyed any of the other mechanical simulator games released on Switch by Ultimate, then you will probably have a good time with this one. It’s another scoop of the same gameplay seen many times before. This game doesn’t do anything wrong that all other previous games haven’t done. But that’s part of the problem, isn’t it? Six years on, and we’re getting mindless old PC ports from this publisher. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But when it happens, I suspect it’s just a coincidence. Nothing I can see here suggests that Ultimate has considered how this game will play on the platform. The user interface is horribly clumsy and clearly designed for the mouse. Text is small enough that it is sometimes almost unreadable on handheld screens. It’s buggy in a lot of weird ways.
It’s hardly surprising that Motorcycle mechanic simulator 2021 Playing on Switch is just as annoying. Most of these emulators, simply because they’re built around PC gameplay, and haven’t given proper consideration to the Switch’s input and display methods. If you can understand the awful controls and user interface, you might find it interesting to take the bikes apart, repair them, and put them back together. But at least, I’ll wait for a deep, deep drop.
SwitchArcade Score: 2/5
Right and Down ($9.99)
This looks interesting. It’s a roguelite card game, and yes, I know we have a lot of those, but this game has a gimmick where you can make moves that are right or straight. Each turn you make a choice and must live or die with the outcome. The dungeons are randomly generated, but everything else in the game is fixed, so you have all the information you need to make the best choice at any given time. There are several unlockable alternate heroes, tons of artifacts to unlock that can modify your abilities, and a total of nine different dungeons to tackle, each with an extra rule for mixing and everything. I haven’t had a chance to play this yet, but it looks very interesting to me.
Pet Garden ($7.99)
They say that nature abhors space, and if there’s one void on the Switch that people can feel, it’s absence. Nintendo. So here’s another game that tries to fill that void, with many different breeds to choose from and a number of activities you can engage in with them. You can also decorate the garden space in which they live. It doesn’t look very eye-catching to me, but I suppose people can stick to things if they’re cute enough. But only dogs when it says pets in the title? When will there be sims to raise leopard chameleons?
(North American eShop, US price)
Well, not much on either list today. Haiku, the robot is pretty solid and that’s its lowest price. Otherwise, I don’t have much to say. New Year’s sales have really dropped at this point, but I’m sure all of our wallets can take a break anyway. For those who want to throw in some cash, I’m sure we’ll find some reason to do so by the end of the week.

That’s all for today, friends. Today I had my fifth vaccination and this is my first Omicron vaccine. I have absolutely no idea how the side effects will affect my loot, so I can’t guarantee we’ll have an article tomorrow. If I could crawl out of bed, I definitely would. And if I do, you can expect more new releases and sales, plus any major news. I hope you all have a great Tuesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
