If you’ve played an hour in one Dynasty Warriors game you’ve played an hour in all of them. That’s been the conventional wisdom for a while now and although Dynasty Warriors 9 doesn’t disprove it, it does point toward some interesting new possibilities for the series in its new open world setting.

If Dragon Quest Heroes does one thing right, it's making all your favorite Dragon Quest characters look incredibly badass.
Coming from a partnership between Square Enix and Koei-Tecmo's Omega Force, it's no surprise that Dragon Quest Heroes plays a lot like Dynasty Warriors. What is surprising, however, is how much it resembles tower defense games.
Much like last year’s Hyrule Warriors, Dragon Quest Heroes has taken characters from its classic titles and given them an updated look for some good old hack n’ slash action on current gen systems. And while the design changes are often minor, I’d argue they’re definitely for the better.

The Legend of Zelda series has been around for 28 years now and over that time, the game's heroes and villains have been redesigned again and again. But let me be frank here, when it comes to Zelda character designs, there are none I like more than those from the newest spin-off game in the series, Hyrule Warriors.
