Pandora's Tower ReviewThis is it. After years of campaigning and letter writing, the last of the three Operation Rainfall games has arrived: Pandora's Tower. I must admit, out of the three games, this is the one for which I was most excited. While I can appreciate a good RPG, I do generally prefer action-adventure titles. Pandora's Tower is probably the odd man out of the three games, as it doesn't have the pedigree of The Last Story nor the critical praise of Xenoblade. Seeing as this game is in a different genre, I'm a little baffled as to why this particular game was chosen to tie up the big three. Regardless, I'd heard several people say that this was the weakest of the three Operation Rainfall, but what's my opinion on the game? Is it worthy of standing next to the likes of Xenoblade and The Last Story, or should I have listened to all the naysayers who say it isn't worth my time?
Pandora's Tower follows the tale of Aeron, a knight on a quest to cure his belove
Crimson Shroud ReviewWay back in the day, when the only video games I was interested in were Pokemon and Zelda, I was into table-top gaming. I liked collecting the models and staging makeshift battles with them that were decided by the role of a die. Heck, I still paint miniature figures for people today as a job. I've rolled my fair share of d20s in my time. So, it's only fitting that I took an interest in Crimson Shroud, one of the other Guild 01 games that takes its inspiration from the table-top days of yore.
The plot is a fairly generic fantasy set-up. You play as three Chasers (the game's fancy term for “bounty hunter”) who also fill the stereotypical class roles of mage, archer, and fighter. And thank heavens these three characters aren't a elf, a man, and a dwarf, because this game doesn't need another cliché to drag it down. I could name these characters, but to be quite frank, they're so bland and forgettable. And what are these t
Batman: Arkham City ReviewQuestion: who doesn't love Batman? The Joker? Although, when you think about it, I guess even he loves Batman in his own twisted sort of rivalry with the Caped Crusader. Some of you may be wondering why this question has any relevance. Well, if you read the title, you might already know that: because today I'm reviewing a little game called Batman: Arkham City. The game is a sequel to 2009's stellar Batman: Arkham Asylum, and continues the story started with that game. Now, I never played Arkham Asylum, which you can blame on Nintendo for not making the Wii powerful enough run such a title, but that's beside the point. However, I recently had the privilege to play Arkham City on Wii U, so you can expect a run down on how that version differs from the older versions that actually came out when the game was relevant. But first, let's talk about the game itself and how it holds up.
After the events of Asylum, Hugo Strange manages to convince
Kirby's Adventure Retro ReviewWhile it is true Kirby got his start on the old GameBoy, it wasn't until his first console outing that we really got to know the adorable pink puffball. His rosy hue and his knack for copying enemy abilities are all features that first showed up in Kirby's Adventure for the NES. For this month's Retro Review, let's take a look back at this classic title and see how it has held up over the years.
As per usual, Dreamland is in yet another crisis. King Dedede stole the Star Rod from the Fountain of Dreams, keeping all the Dreamlanders from dreaming in their sleep. He breaks the Star Rod and scatters the pieces across Dreamland. It's up to Kirby to defeat the guardians of each piece of the Star Rod and restore dreams to Dreamland. This game also marked the first appearance of one of my favorite Kirby characters: Meta Knight!
While the story is fairly simple, there is one part of it that really stuck out to me. I know it may be a bit unnecessary to
Twenty-three years before the crippling of Crown Prince James III
He was fourteen and she was probably aged about the same, give or take a few years. It had been an hour since he'd met her.
He hated her already.
She scowled behind him and likely shared the sentiment as they scampered up the hillside in a desperate attempt to escape the roaring mob that seemed to be growing perpetually larger and coming ever-closer. Gabriel would have liked to say that it was all her fault he was in this situation, though it was his careless nicking ofwhat was it? A chicken that started the first old woman running, but how was he supposed to know that she'd stumble and fall and everyone else would think he'd assaulted her?
He hadn't. He'd taken the chicken, snapped its neck and run, because he hadn't eaten meat in weeks and he was starting to feel the affects on his already weak limbs.
This is what happens, he thought. This is what happens when you live like th
