Game review: Discover new classes in 'Bravely Second: End Layer'

"Bravely Default" was a "Final Fantasy" game that wasn't. It took many of the classic themes of the series - job classes, airships, even specific item and spell names - and updated them for the modern handheld era. It was a satifying answer on how to make a Final-Fantasy-styled game competitive in today's mobile market. "Bravely Second: End Layer" continues that core philosophy, but one of its sole differentiators from the "Final Fantasy" series proves to be its only real shortcoming. This is an actual sequel, and with that comes some baggage.

Prom time: Find what look flatters you most for prom

We've all had that experience: We look at a picture of a celebrity and think to ourselves, "Man, I really wish I could look like that." Or another common problem - a new hairstyle suddenly becomes trendy and looks good on every celebrity who has it, but when you try it out, it doesn't look nearly as flattering.
