Note: The game is only officially available for iOS and Android in select territories. If you are not one of those select territories, you can acquire the game (legally!) via a service such as QooApp.

Dragalia Lost: You Don’t Pay My Sub - A while back, I wrote about how Granblue Fantasy spreads out what would be the “endgame” experience of a more conventional MMO throughout its entire duration.

Dragalia Lost: Loyalty’s Requiem - One interesting difference between “conventional” MMOs such as Final Fantasy XIV and mobile games with MMO elements such as Dragalia Lost is how they handle side stories and multiplayer “raid” content. In your average MMO, raid content — typically defined as a series of significant challenges that are dependent on a much larger group of … Continue reading Dragalia Lost: Loyalty’s Requiem
Dragalia Lost: What’s That Sound? It’s Daoko - If you’ve been playing Nintendo and Cygames’ new mobile release Dragalia Lost, you’ve probably noticed it has a rather distinctive soundtrack.
