Game Diaries: Bravely Default


Release Weekend:
So much excitement you can almost twerk! After playing the satisfying demo for Bravely Default, it was made clear that the game is a must-have.

I was able to pick up the collector’s edition which came in a sleek, matted, black box which included 32 AR CARDs and a CD with the original soundtrack. As soon as you start, you get the traditional long intro video similar to just about every Final Fantasy.

Which works out great as it puts you into the perspective of the characters so you can start building an emotional attachment with each of them prior to starting the voyage. To those gamers who don’t pay attention to dialogue this is usually when you will start to nod off.

The graphics are a bit on the cartoony side of things when it comes to the definition of the characters themselves but elements of the surroundings captured seemed to give an anime vibe. It is as if they know who their consumers are. I can personally vouch to being an anime and RPG lover and this mixes both worlds; now I just have to play to see if it gets the best of each side.

Juan was raised in a place where dysfunctional urban youth tainted the lives of those who were exposed to the drugs and the gunfire that lit the streets. In order to survive, he kept himself barricaded in his room, in the trenches of Nintendo and Sega. It’s how his passion developed for gaming and how the creative imagination took the driver’s seat. Gaming is an escape from the struggles of life and to express frustration. Just because you gain responsibilities as time progresses doesn’t mean you have to let go of gaming. Just adapt and evolve it to best suit your lifestyle and embrace the adventures that being a gamer brings. Stay posted and see what the product of the GAMING EVOLUTION can do.
