Ni No Kuni is offering a free Draggle familiar DLC today
by Chris Carter

It's a free DLC-fest for the PlayStation Network today, as Draggle, the adorable guy pictured above, is dropping for free on the PSN.

If you aren't familiar with how Ni No Kuni works, it's basically like Pokémon. Around eight hours into the game, you'll gain the ability to catch and train familiars, which function as party members.

Draggle is one of those creatures, offered up today as free DLC. To redeem him (or any DLC), go to the Temple of Trials in the Shimmering Sands desert on the southern portion of the map.

Walk up to the Great Sage and redeem the ticket -- simple! If you need more tips, check out my mini-guide here.

Ni No Kuni guide: 20+ essential tips to get you started
by Chris Carter

The world of Ni No Kuni is whimsical, beautiful, and sometimes scary. The mere fact that the game features a number of old school JRPG tropes is enough to frighten even some of the hardiest of gamers, who are used to modern conveniences like fast travel from the start.

Having acclimated myself to Level-5's newest instant JRPG classic, I'm ready to provide a short starter guide for the first 10-20 hours or so, for people who may be scared off from tackling this beast.

Release this game from its shrink-wrap, read these tips, and get ready for an amazing journey.

Review: Aero Porter photo
Review: Aero Porter
by Jonathan Holmes

A videogame is a thing that asks you to do a series of tasks in order to meet arbitrary goals that were established by someone else. Videogames are things that most of us partake in for "fun," regardless of how difficult the tasks are. In fact, a lot of people only want to play videogames that present them with tasks that "offer a nice challenge."

A job is a thing that asks you to do a series of tasks in order to meet arbitrary goals that were established by someone else. Jobs are things that most of us will only do if we get paid, regardless of how easy the tasks are. In fact, a lot of people with jobs that present them with tasks that "aren't challenging enough." 

Where does the line between job end and videogame begin? What makes a game, or a job, "nicely challenging?" These are some of the the questions I was left asking myself after my time with Yoot Saito's Aero Porter.
