    @nadiaoxford - The concerns you expressed about this remake when it was first announced were spot on and they are every bit as valid today. No need to soften your criticisms as many of us are glad to see fans of the original game calling this remake out for what it is—a flawed cash grab. The graphics in this remake are on par with a mobile title and the voice acting fails to rise above the Saturday morning cartoon level.

    I would have been happier with a console version of the up-res’d game released on mobile devices a few years ago. Absent that, I will stick to my recently acquired SNES Classic version of the original release.

    @Jonnyboy407 - Agreed--IX was the last truly great FF game. Following that, the next great FF title was titled Bravely Default.

    I am not looking forward to a future that looks anything like FFXV. Hopefully Project Octopath Traveler is a commercial success and brings Square back to its senses.

    Finished the Project Octopath demo and I am hooked. The game play, combat system, and graphics were exactly what I was hoping for. Even the more serious tone of the story was a welcome antidote to the sophomoric themes found in many JRPGs of recent years.

    Several classic JRPG franchises could certainly be identified as having influenced development, but SaGa Frontier and Suikoden were two that jumped out at me.

    Nintendo just sent the survey requesting thoughts on the demo and I said the best thing they could do for this game is offer more of what we have seen here.

    Looking forward to this episode! Cannot wait to hear your thoughts on Alliance Alive and Project Octopath Traveler.

    @Tetragrammaton - Very true. It originally released in 2011 when interest in the DS was waning. Not sure why Atlus is repeating that decision with the 3DS. RH is a terrific game--under-appreciated largely because of that late in console life release decision. It deserves better.

    I was glad to see Alliance Alive getting a western release. Just imported the soundtrack from Japan and it is really good. This game has a strong SaGa vibe and I am loving it.

    Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology launch edition looks very nice. Such an amazing game--too bad it is releasing at the very end of the 3DS life cycle when almost no one will play it.

    Xenoblade 2 combat has me a little concerned. I need to see more before I decide whether to pick this up at launch. Not a fan of the frenetic combat systems a la Final Fantasy XV.

    Starting the Project Octopath demo now. That was my biggest and best surprise of the evening. Gorgeous graphics. I feel as though I am living FF VI all over again. Day one purchase for me.

    @orient - So many people are saying this. Makes me wonder if I will be the only one purchasing Radiant Historia on the 3DS next March???

    Excellent review, Kat! I am glad to hear that MercurySteam held true to the Metroid 'formula' while at the same time identifying areas in which they could leave their own mark on this game. The use of parrying in combat is probably the best example.

    Too many years have passed since I last played Metroid II on Game Boy, so I look forward to digging into this one on Friday.

    Hoping for a Xenoblade 2 firm release date and Collector Edition announcement.
