RPG Grind Time – Guilty Pleasure RPGs

An RPG doesn’t need big-budget graphics or to shake up the genre to simply be fun. I have plenty of games that I know have issues, but I love them despite their glaring flaws. These RPGs have a hook that keeps me coming back to them. Many of you can probably relate to this. You wouldn’t dare rank them up with the best games, but you still get enough enjoyment out of them that they’re worth your time. The more and more I think about it, these guilty pleasure games aren’t some deep, dark secret we need to keep. Nobody should have any shame in what brings them joy. Therefore, I’m dedicating this column to the series/games I’ve often called my guilty pleasures. These RPGs are often overshadowed by bigger names, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get their due. Hopefully, you can share some of my sentiments or find something in here that piques your interest.

Exclusive Gameplay Of Dragon Ball FighterZ's Two Best Players

Here at Game Informer, we're very excited to roll out a month of exclusive features highlighting Dragon Ball FighterZ to go along with our new cover story on the game. To kick things off, we wanted to show some pure, high-level gameplay from two game designers within the game's development studio, Arc System Works. We were told the two fighters in the videos below are the best in the studio, and therefore the best in the entire world at this point. 

Watch the video below to see a fantastic match that shows off Piccolo and Android 16 in some exciting ways.

Is The Free Stranger Things Game Worth Downloading?

Is The Free Stranger Things Game Worth Downloading?

Early this morning we learned about the existence of a throwback Stranger Things mobile game. It's out now, and it's free, but is it worth downloading?

The game is free in the truest sense, in that does not include microtransactions. Jeff Cork and I only spent a few minutes with it, but it seems all right! Watch us play the game, and gush about our fandom for Stranger Things below.

Is Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions Worth Your Time?

Is Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions Worth Your Time?

In the strangely split Mario RPG library, the Mario & Luigi series generally has more in common with the original Legend of the Seven Stars for SNES, especially when compared to the current state of the Paper Mario series. Superstar Saga represents the first entry in the series and originally released on Game Boy Advance in 2003 to near universal acclaim. We gave the game a 9.5 review score. Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is a full remake of that game that adds some new content, but is it worth revisiting?

Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is a game nobody was asking for, but I don’t mean that in a derogatory way. Fans usually want remakes of games that didn’t quite live up to their full technical potential, or are unplayable on current platforms. Superstar Saga, when it released in 2003, was not held back by any overt technical limitations. It looked great and played well, and that holds true today. When we put the games side by side for a recent video, many even commented that they preferred the pixelated original. Additionally, the game is downloadable on Wii U for a reasonable price, $7.99. It’s not a hard game to find and play, and it still plays great.
