Well, after ditching that crappy old hosting, I can get back to posting these… So let’s go on! I’ll post the rest this week so I can post everything else in the backlog (which isn’t too much).
I LOVE exclusive games. They’re what makes a console worth owning over the others in the long run, or give incentive to own more than one of the consoles. Before the 7th gen, console fanbases were built on exclusives, but in the 7th gen that didn’t really happen (instead console fanbases were built on people hating the other console for literally no reason at all). Getting a 360 got you basically the same game library as the PS3, and vice versa, so there was little reason to get both (which, again, I did, twice).
While 7th gen consoles were a bit lacking in this respect, there’s still some great stuff here. So I’ll go through what I think are the top-notch exclusives of the generation.
And no, I’m not a complete braindead moron who thinks that a game being on PC and 360 means they’re 360 exclusive. Come on! And I’m skipping PC because… I’m lazy, yay!

While Record of Agarest War was just like Cross Edge in almost every way, this is another game I had up as this year’s candidate for “game that will have the same kind of reviews as Cross Edge”. Surprisingly enough, it seems like people were a bit more lenient on this one than they were with Cross Edge. Granted, it doesn’t suffer from as many problems as Cross Edge, but it’s still aiming at exactly the same audience.
I was interested in the game partly because of the Disgaea crossovers, but also because the gameplay seemed fairly solid. So I had some fairly good expectations for this.

If you know me, you know I’m a relatively big fan of games NIS America bring over to America. There are some exceptions, of course, and I’m more partial towards games developped by NIS itself.
This game caught my interest for a number of reasons:
1. Published by NISA
3. Various Darkstalker characters
4. Interesting-looking gameplay
5. Costumes for all the female characters
Read on and see if the game is actually good like I was expecting, or if it actually deserves the stupidly low 3.5/10 rating from IGN.

Another month is quickly passing by, and a new one is upcoming. I’m doing this earlier than I thought I would, but whatever!
Starting on this list I’ll also be including interesting import titles from Japan and Europe as well (for the importers out there).
The multi-platform games are at the bottom of the list.
If you see anything missing from the list, don’t hesitate to tell me in the comments and I’ll try to make this list as up-to-date as possible.
Read on after the link!

2008 has been a great year in gaming. Companies putting up really fun current-gen entries to old series, some new stuff and overall, whatever system you have (unless you just have a Wii), it was a great year to be a gamer.
So I’ve decided to compile a list of the best games of the year. But I’ll do this a bit differently. Instead of making my own list, I’ll have input from all 4 writers on this site. So without further ado, let’s dig into this!
Well the PSN update today had some pretty epic stuff. Well, mostly just the Mirror’s Edge demo, and the EndWar demo which I had no idea they were releasing. There’s also a WWE Smackdown VS Raw demo and an Alone in the Dark demo, but I don’t care about those.
So here i’ll be giving my first impressions on both those demos. And a little bonus after that
I’m a bit late on this one, but here goes.
Disgaea was an incredible game on the PS2. Â Sporting cool 2D graphics, a great story, incredible characters, and really fun gameplay, it was a must-have on the PS2… Too bad it was basically ignored by the general populace.
This is the second incarnation of the game on handheld consoles. It was on the PSP last year, and now it’s released on the technologically inferior Nintendo DS.
Can the DS handle the awesomeness? Or does the DS’ limitations make the game lame?
