She can bring joy and feelings that you had thought were long since lost. On the other hand she can destroy some of your most cherished moments and leave you with shredded memories of what you thought was good in the world. Is 3D Dot Game Heroes just another bad nostalgia trip or can it rekindle the memories you once had?"
