An ephemeral, ethereal JRPG full of slow-pacing and melancholia. 0

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon, beyond having an unwieldy name, is something of a dark horse among tri-Crescendo's library of more straightforward RPGs, like Eternal Sonata or Baten Kaitos. At times it has the slow cadence of survival horror: The foreboding darkness of a post-apocalyptic Tokyo is an eerie environment to stage a game, with protagonist Seto constantly requiring the use of a flashlight and his wits to fend off the many restless spirits that now occupy the various dilapi...

Abysmal gameplay hurts one of the most depressing stories I've ever seen 0

I didn’t really enjoy my time spent with Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon, at least not in that usual sense of the word. As a game, it’s not great. Boring and frustrating combat, ponderous fetch quests, and a difficulty curve that resembles a seismic scale during a violent earthquake made it a hard game to love. Pair this gameplay with a story that weighed heavily on me with its dark scenes and crushing sense of hopelessness and you can maybe see why I had a hard time making my way thr...

You Don't Need an RPG to Merge Anime and Gaming 0

Before playing a game, most people like to have some idea of what they’re getting into. There are gamers who like their shooters, gamers who like their sports simulation games, tournament fighters, platformers, etc. The thing about Tri-Crescendo’s Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is that, no matter what you’re expecting, nothing will really prepare you for the experience that is this game. That said, you get out of it what you put in.Fragile Dreams is a third person adventure game that...

I like you a lot Fragile, but let's stay friends. 0

A game like Fragile could not have come at a better time.  Last year, the the very landscape of Arkham Asylum captivated gamers with its detail and density.  Silent Hill made a surprising comeback on the Wii with its new exploratory format.  Fragile has been knocking on America's door for quite a while, touting its original environment of a ruined uninhabited Tokyo.  Having a personal love for exploring abandoned buildings, this rushed right to the top of my 2010 anticipation list.  And now upon...

In Defense of Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon 0

Living in press-event isolation as I do, I did not go into Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon with more than a teaser trailer --as seen below -- to go by. What I saw in that years-old video was one boy's struggle with isolation in a stunning but decaying RPG world. What I experienced in this widely underrated game is hard to explain, but I know that going into it without expectations opened my mind to the work more than those who immersed themselves in the hype.I want to convince you tha...
