Last year, I reviewed Pokémon Silver when it was re-released on 3DS. While I did feel that the game has dated in some areas, I also believed that the Generation II games were when the Pokémon series cemented itself as a mechanically solid series that was here to stay. That being said, Pokémon Crystal was surprisingly absent from the initial

In 2016, Square Enix and Tokyo RPG Factory released I Am Setusna — a love letter to the Japanese role-playing games of the 8 and 16-bit eras. Influenced by some of Squaresoft’s most notable titles like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI, the then-new developer brought a substantial, nostalgic journey with its inaugural release.

My first introduction to the SaGa franchise was SaGa Frontier 2 on PlayStation, and to this day I consider it one of my all-time favorite RPGs. However, with having limited to no internet access at the time, I was unaware of most titles that came before it; more specifically, the Romancing SaGa trilogy on Super Famicom.
