In JRPG Quests You Just Can’t Avoid the Boonies. In JRPG Quests You Just Can’t Avoid the Boonies.

(AfroGamers.com) In many JRPGs, you have the villages and small towns that have their chiefs and their own problems. It’s all part of the main quest and sub quest approach to roleplaying games. However, I’ve always had questions about these villages. In classic JRPGs, there often wasn’t enough space for players to get the lore of the settlement. It was merely there way before the main character... [Read more of this review]


The Elder Scrolls Series: Skyrim vs. Oblivion – Which Game Had the Better Factions? The Elder Scrolls Series: Skyrim vs. Oblivion – Which Game Had the Better Factions?

(AfroGamers.com) In Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, what groups did you align with? Sure, you had the Imperials and the Stormcloaks who comprised of the main story’s primary forces—and usually I picked Stormcloaks because of the armor—but what other groups did you join? The obvious answer is “All of them” since you could join them all and the benefits were pretty good. One thing I hated was that... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Let’s take a departure from isekai and martial arts manhua and manhwa and look at something very different in Monster Pet Evolution. It’s not unusual to read a manhua or manhwa series and see that the main character has gained a pet of some sort. Often times, it’s a mythological beast that they get in a weakened state or as a child. The main character then uses resources to raise... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Something that I really hate is when something is put on a pedestal for the wrong reasons. The initial impact of a game, how it made you feel at the time, or even what was going on in the world around that time are all things that could cloud your views of how good a game truly is. I think that Final Fantasy VII is the perfect example of a game that falls into this category. People... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Like any other Nintendo franchise, Pokemon is a game of mysteries that have never been answered and will likely never be answered. It’s just the way that the Pokemon games and anime goes where some mysteries about the Pokeworld just won’t be addressed. Let’s look at five lingering questions that have spawned fan speculation, rumors, and easter egg hunts since this series dropped... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) Dragon Ball is one of my all-time favorite media franchises and it has amassed over 30 years of lore since 1989. In that 30-plus years of lore that I believe we’ll find new stories in the franchise.

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen – Get It or Don’t? Destiny 2: The Witch Queen – Get It or Don’t?

(AfroGamers.com) On February 22, Bungie dropped the long-anticipated expansion for its acclaimed open world action MMO shooter, Destiny 2. Since the original Destiny, I have always been interested in what they were going to add next, and even when things got repetitive, I still played. Every three months, on day one, I would happily cough up my $30 just to get my hands on the new content. When they... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) “Post-apocalypse” is my favorite genre of fiction. Fallout is in my top three favorite game franchises and Mad Max is one of my favorite film franchises. On television, there are plenty sci-fi shows that fit the bill but ended up getting cut short or ending on a whimper. Let’s look at five post-apocalypse series that should get either a reboot or a revival on Netflix. Revolution This... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) In the fall of 1995, I was a 10-year-old youngster when Dragon Ball first aired on the our then staticky, unreliable UPN affiliate station. Anime as a whole was about to see a major boom in the next few years but I’m guessing UPN was the best option for a cartoon that wasn’t proven in the U.S yet. The Debut Run of Dragon Ball in the U.S Dragon Ball ran the first arc—the Pilaf... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) A topic I’ve always felt deserved more attention in gaming is espionage—skullduggery and spycraft. I always enjoyed films like Mission: Impossible, Golden Eye, and shows such as Nikita, Burn Notice, and The Blacklist. As a result, games that featured these themes have always been something I would not pass up. Let’s look at the Adam Jensen Saga of one of my favorite espionage... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) I’ve never been big on racing games. Sometimes, a game like Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit will come along and pique my interest. That was the same case with the reboot from 2010. Racing games with a little something different really catch my attention. Let’s look at four racing games that added something different that run-the-route-this-many-times.
