Are you ready? Fear’s awake, and anger beats loud; it’s time to face reality and check out the Persona 3 Portable reviews. Let’s start off with Nintendo Wire, who adored the game. In the publication’s 9/10 review, they praised the game’s story and high replay value with the two protagonists: “The cast is endearing, from troubled everygirl Yukari to musclebound dork Akihiko to best pupper in the world Koromaru, though they can lack in some of the absurdly entertaining chemistry of the casts of P4/P5.” Siliconera awarded Persona 3 Portable a strong 8/10, highlighting the quality-of-life additions this PSP game…

Image: Nintendo LifeEvery decade or so, something big happens to bring zombies back into our lives. Whether it was the release of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead in 1978, the publication and subsequent adaptation of The Walking Dead, the hugely popular ‘Zombies’ mode in the Call of Duty series, or the meteoric rise of The Last of Us, we love a date with the undead.

Image: Nintendo LifeI’ll start this with a confusing admission: My favourite thing in the world is a trip to an aquarium. I could spend days gazing through the curved glass of a tank, watching sharks glide past me, pressing my hand against the smooth, white underbelly of a stingray, and taking note of the clownfish darting in and out of the swaying mass of a sea anemone. Aquariums are my happy place. They’re fascinating, beautiful, entrancing, and for a kid who grew up pretty far away from the ocean, basically magic. So why do I dislike fish Pokémon so much?…

In some ways, yes, it definitely does. There are some games that are undoubtedly subjected to numerous compromises in order to run on the system reasonably well, but then, that’s always been the case with third-party games, right..?
