Robert’s Pick: Ok, so that Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem footage that Nintendo streamed really didn’t look like what I was expecting, with the trailer failing to show a single grid-based battle. Despite that setback, I haven’t lost hope in the crossover, with this week’s release of Etrian Mystery Dungeon easily earning my pre-order monies. Combining the dungeon crawling from the Chunsoft’s prolific Mystery Dungeon franchise with the role playing elements of the Etrian Odyssey series, this fusion just might be the interactive equivalent of crepes filled with banana slices, whipped cream, and an ample supply of Nutella. I’ll be digging in with two spoons this week.

  1. Sony should be giving away Bastion. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t played the game already.

  2. I’m afraid if I bought Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures then every asshat YouTuber will get his own game. Lord knows no one whats to play Anita: Taking Down the Tropes.

  3. I’ll grab my free copy of Tower of Guns. Gotta love PS+

  4. I’d pay $10 to play the Die,PewDiePie, Die game and hear him scream one last time.

  5. Ill be getting Etrian Mystery Dungeon this week.

  6. I love it a little less this month, hopefully May will be better.

  7. Not a whole lot to choose from this week besides Etrian.

  8. So, basically Etrian Mystery Dungeon is Pokemon MD with Etrian characters? I can’t get excited over that.

  9. I have Running with Rifles on my wishlist. I hope it comes out at less than $10.
