Robert’s Pick: As a train aficionado and admirer of Japan’s natural beauty, Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburbs #1 might be getting a purchase, but I don’t expect my tastes with this title to align with most players (or really, anyone). Instead, gamers should look toward Arc System Works two 3DS efforts, Ninja Usagimaru – The Gem of Blessings and Sword and Darkness. Building on the goodwill earned through the developers last two downloadable efforts, Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo and Fantasy Hero Unsigned Legacy. Ninja Usagimaru looking to be a pleasing platform, with as its title suggests, rabbits, while Sword and Darkness blends brawling and role-playing into an interesting concoction.

  1. I know the rest of the world disagrees with me, but I’m tired of the Lego formula. They need to give it a break for a year or two.

    • Yeah, I’m kind of the same. Zero interest in LEGO’s Skylanders-like game. Between Skylanders, Disney Infinity, and Amiibos, I have enough game-toys laying around, anyway.

  2. Two words:

    STEAM SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I have never unerstood the allure of bicyle racing games.

  4. Im surprised there arent more Dr. Mario games.

  5. Sword and Darkness looks cool. Hope it’s not too simple.

  6. You know what would be a good idea for an article here? An overview of the Harvest Moon games explaining differences and which ones are the best ones to get if you only buy one.

  7. Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburbs #1 almost sounds like a fake title. It’s just needs the word “Fantasy” randomly placed in there somewhere.

  8. Played the first level of LEGO Jurassic World.

    It’s another LEGO games so if you’re tired of them, this isn’t going to win you over, but it is fun as hell.
