Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS has a new dungeon, ending

Dragon Quest VIII was released all the way back in 2004 on PS2, but its legacy has withstood the test of time. It's still regarded as one of the best entries in the series, and later this year in Japan, it will hit the 3DS. Now we have a bi...

Well, Dragon Quest VIII almost looks as good as it did 11 years ago

I'm always down for photo modes. Still, adding a photo quests feature that tasks you with snapping pictures for rewards, in a port of a game that looked a little bit better in 2004? (For reference, it is now 2015) Well, ok. Still nice to h...
