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
The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 4 – Servant to the Gacha - A week later than originally intended, here’s the fourth episode of The MoeGamer Podcast!

This is partly due to the game’s overall structure and progression: you’re not levelling up a single character … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy: The Grind Never Ends
Granblue Fantasy: More Than Just a Deck of Cards - Japanese mobile-social gacha-based RPGs — or “mobages” as they’re colloquially known today, after the social network many of them are hosted on — were originally described when they first appeared as “card battle” games. Looking at Cygames’ previous title Rage of Bahamut, it’s easy to understand why. Everything about the game had the feel of … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy: More Than Just a Deck of Cards
Granblue Fantasy: Sounds of the Skydom - Japanese role-playing games have long been known for having some of the most memorable soundtracks in all of gaming.

The news that Cygames’ incredibly popular Granblue Fantasy has a fantastic soundtrack will probably not come as a surprise, however, given the incredibly strong pedigree of … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy: Sounds of the Skydom
Granblue Fantasy: My First Three Weeks - With any big online game — particularly one that has been around for several years — it can be difficult to know where and how to get started.

Granblue Fantasy: First Steps in Phantagrande - Last time, we looked at where Cygames’ mobile hit Granblue Fantasy came from, and how it’s become such a phenomenon.

Granblue Fantasy: Acknowledging a Phenomenon - There comes a point where something becomes so popular that it’s impossible to ignore, even if your initial reaction to it is “I’m not sure I want to get involved with that.” Such is the case with Granblue Fantasy, a free-to-play mobile game developed by Cygames and published on the popular Japanese Mobage platform.
