Is Gurumin 3D Worth a Look?

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure, which recently launched for the Nintendo 3DS, is an action RPG about a young girl who befriends a village of monsters and must fight to save them when their village is attacked by the evil Phantoms. It was developed by Nihon Falcom, the company behind the Ys and Legend of Heroes series, among others. The original Gurumin was a Japan-only PC game released in 2004.

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir – What Went Wrong?

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir – What Went Wrong?

Despite Nintendo’s general image as the family-friendly company, there are some terrifying, excellent horror games available for Nintendo’s consoles. Then there are some that didn’t quite work out… like Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for the Nintendo 3DS. Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir The game is a spin-off of the Fatal Frame series, but unlike the oft-praised Fatal Frame games, Spirit Camera saw an abysmal reception. It was criticized for its length, lack of scares, and awkward gameplay. But despite having a campaign you can finish in around 3 hours and only a small amount of side content, its content isn’t really what doomed it. It was the camera. Spirit ... »
