Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + | Review
You know I didn’t know what to expect when I started up this game but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + a lot more than I thought I would.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask | Review

A brand new Japanese trailer for Bravely Second: End Layer has appeared on Square Enix Japan’s YouTube channel. Surprisingly the trailer is currently listed as a private video meaning that it is not currently indexed in the main YouTube gaming category. It is possible that the video was accidently uploaded prematurely so watch it in the embedded player before it gets taken down.
End Layer is the hotly anticipated sequel to last year’s surprise RPG hit Bravely Default for the Nintendo 3DS. Square has developed a few new systems to spice things up for players of the first game while keeping things familiar. Among these new developments is “consecutive chance” system which allows players to chain multiple encounters together with increasing difficulty for a chance at some really rare loot.
In terms of jobs End Layer will offer a whole host of awesome sounding jobs like Pirate, Ninja, Thief and some truly bizarre ones like the Catmaster.

The player who gets the most votes is declared the winner of the round!
Jackbox Games has a rather ambitious schedule ahead of them as they are looking to ship the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3 and PC by the end of this summer. They are seeking $15,000 in funding so that they can put some extra resources into the game and it out to the public super quick.
