'Proteus' and the Simple Act of Being

Skyrim put us in Skyrim and Fallout put us in the wasteland, but simply "being" there gets muddled by all of the other elements that those games require of their players. Proteus is tapping into that ability of games to create a sense of immersion and little else.

Style is Substance in 'Ni no Kuni'

In my head I kept comparing Ni no Kuni to Xenoblade Chronicles, but they evoke their sense of adventure in two very different ways. Instead, the way that Ni no Kuni uses its world rather than its story to evoke adventure means it actually has more in common with Skyrim than a JRPG.
