IGN Video Review - One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is a great One Piece game, and though it wears its many flaws on its sleeveless, red button-down top and straw hat, its smart additions to combat go a long way in reducing the notorious tedium that typically plagues the musou genre. It's still a tough sell to a non-One Piece fan, but as someone who absolutely loves One Piece and was only just sort of into Musou games, I found a ton to like in Pirate Warriors 4.

IGN Video - Exit the Gungeon Review

"2019's Enter The Gungeon was transcendent. It fused buttery-smooth combat, cutesy pixel art, and hilarious callbacks into a surprisingly deep roguelike-shmup. It had style, substance, and about a thousand different guns. Its spin-off, Exit the Gungeon, is a song with all those same notes, but sounds entirely different. You'll still collect hundreds of ridiculous guns, unlock all sorts of secrets, and dodge tens of thousands of bullets - sometimes, seemingly all at once. But instead of exploring a labyrinthian maze, you'll spend most of your time crammed in a small elevator shaft on each level - with less than ideal control over your weapons. The result isn't entirely cohesive, but it's still fun as hell."

Famitsu's full 38/40 review for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been translated into English

Can the hype for this game grow any stronger?

Thanks to JapaneseNintendo and BlackKite, the first ever review for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been translated into English, and it looks to be another great social-sim from Nintendo. Check out what four different reviewers from Famitsu had to say about the game below, with an impressive accumulative score of 38/40.

1st reviewer: The scenery, furniture, and dwellers have all become beautiful, so you can fully enjoy a high-quality life where you feel the island’s atmosphere; everyday feels like being in a resort. It is worth trying to fill an empty island little by little with DIY. If you place furniture outdoors they can be broadly used with a sense of freedom that feels good. The “Nook Mileage” can also work as a guide, and the rewards are also very useful. I’m surprised that the museum is so large like a totally different dimension, but this keeps making me filled with the desire to collect things. 9/10

2nd reviewer: While retaining the series’ atmosphere and touch, the more beautiful graphics and life in an uninhabited island are fresh. I’m excited that there are a lot of things that I can do; collect materials and make things with DIY. While playing with the sense of freedom, the “Nook Mileage” gives “Miles” for completing various objectives; it can also serve as a gameplay guidance which is good. As more and more dwellers get added, the island will eventually become lively, which brings joy and makes you want to enjoy it for a loose and long time. 9/10

3rd reviewer: While including all the fun features throughout the series, they also solved all the detailed parts that I wished they would’ve done before, so it’s great that it has been powered up. You can create the island’s terrains and place building totally as you like it, so it will be irresistible to those who have fixations. There are also “Mileages” that propose a way to spend your time as a close objective, so there is no worry of getting lost on what to do, so it’s the most gracious. 10/10

4th reviewer: The gameplay and touch that form the basis is the same with [past] series titles, and you can feel the relief. In addition to that, the freshness from this game is also great with things like Smartphone features, Crafting features, and obtaining Mileages. The system that lets you share the fun of living in an uninhabited island – from surprises to joys – with various players is excellent. The quote distributon of the appearing characters are also great; they create a reality that you can enjoy addictedly. The stress-less interface design is also good. 10/10
