Harsh Review - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

Alright i'm gonna be straight up on the harsh part of this review. The translation sucked. It felt like watching a really badly subtitled anime most of the time, except in English. It made me wonder.. did the voice actors ever question what the hell they were saying? Did they ever get sick of saying the words "Ancient Species"? Who thought of the name "Archeozoic Big Hole"?.... Actually, I don't want the answer for the last one. The voice overs were very jarring at times, it really took away from the game a lot of the immersion. However, that is the end of the harsh review!

Harsh Review - Kirby's Epic Yarn

Ok, i'm going to be as harsh as I can with this game.. which is going to be quite hard because I actually kinda enjoyed it.. I picked it up as part of a bulk buy, but the disc had a big scratch in it. Rather than try to sell it at a cheaper price, or send it back for a refund, I decided to play through the entire game to see if the disc had any problems. (Turns out it didn't, in case you were wondering)
