J-Stars Victory Vs import review

April 26th, 2014 No comments

j-stars victory versus
I like anime and manga. I read a handful of series and watch a bunch too. Series published by Shonen Jump are a bit hit or miss to me, or sometimes are interesting in the beginning and then start going down in quality as time goes on… and some of my favorite series are from Jump too.

On the gaming side though, many people will remember the Jump Super Stars/Ultimate Stars series on the DS, which was a really fun Smash Bros style fighting game (sort of), but with its own unique quirks and customizable parties of characters. It was pretty awesome.

Now it’s the 45th anniversary of Shonen Jump, and there’s a new game out to celebrate its history and characters! It has nothing to do with the Super/Ultimate Stars series, but I assume some people may have bought this (or will buy this) due to that.

So read on and see if it’s good, believe it! (I’m sorry)

So in September we’re getting: 2 Wii U releases, 4 Vita releases, 3 PS3 releases and 8 multiplatform releases.

So… Let’s see what’s coming!

Usual disclaimer: Those include either games I’m interested in, or games that may be/become popular… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning, whether I’m personally hyped for it or not.

Dragon’s Crown review

August 30th, 2013 No comments

dragon's crown
Vanillaware isn’t a company I’m super familiar with. I’ve played a bit of GrimGrimoire, one of the stories in Muramasa and saw a friend play Odin Sphere for a few minutes. Dragon’s Crown did catch my attention from the beginning though, with its art style and cool beat ‘em up gameplay.

After a little while of not knowing when it would come out, and oodles of idiots complaining about stupid things before the game’s release, we can finally get our hands on it… and it turns out being pretty solid!

Read on and see what I liked or not here!

Games coming out in June 2013

May 25th, 2013 No comments

Still being slow on my reviews because, again, not playing a whole lot of stuff, and at this point what I AM playing I’ve either already reviewed, or have been out for a couple months so aren’t really worth reviewing…

So JUNE! E3 time, fuck yeah! Sony will show their launch plans for the PS4 (which I really hope turns out okay), Nintendo will reveal a bunch of Wii U games and make it worth buying… Oh and Microsoft will fail to redeem themselves after their horrible reveal.

But there’s also a couple releases: 2 for 3DS, 1 PS3 exclusive, 2 Vita games (whoa!), 2 Wii U games (WHOA!!!!) and 2 multiplats.

Usual disclaimer: Those include either games I’m interested in, or games that may be/become popular… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning, whether I’m personally hyped for it or not.

Games coming out in April 2013

March 24th, 2013 No comments

This is a pretty empty month surprisingly, but there’s a couple cool releases upcoming… Oh, and kickstarter backers such as I will be getting their OUYA consoles near the beginning of the month so you can expect a post where I’ll bash the console! … Probably.

Either way… In April we’re getting: 2 3DS titles, a Vita game, a PS3 game, a 360 game and 3 multiplats. As I said, slow month.

Usual disclaimer: Those include either games I’m interested in, or games that may be/become popular… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning, whether I’m personally hyped for it or not. I’m probably missing some stuff (generally the more indie stuff).

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch review

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the Character that doesn't do anything until 30 hours into the game
I took a while to review this one because… well I wanted to play it to the end and it’s a long RPG, with me not having that much time to play games, and playing other things as well (including other RPGs…), thus I couldn’t really write a review in a timely manner. So here’s my review, finally!

Let’s just go right at it!

Games coming out in March 2013

February 26th, 2013 No comments

Well this has been a slow month of posting… I’ve been playing a couple RPGs so I haven’t really had time to post too much at all (gameplay time is low when you have a full-time job). Ni No Kuni and Fire Emblem reviews still possibly upcoming though, eventually I might actually play those to completion.

On that note, let’s talk about upcoming releases in March! Here we’re getting: 4 3DS games, 3 PS3 games, 2 PC games, a 360 game, 1 Wii U games, a Vita game, a Wii game, and finally 6 multiplatform games… OH and I think the Ouya is coming out for kickstarter backers in March… but who cares?

Well, tons of releases this month! The season of big releases is finally actually starting. Not really a whole lot I’m personally interested in buying, but a lot of stuff nonetheless.

E3 2012 conferences impressions!

June 6th, 2012 No comments

It’s E3 time! And, as per usual, I’ll spend some time talking about what us, the general public, can see from E3. Specifically the Big 3’s conferences.

For full disclosure, here were my expectations for E3 2012 before the conferences started:
Microsoft would end up having a pretty worthless presentation, Sony would have a great presentation because, at this point, they NEED to, and Nintendo will kick ass with tons of Wii U announcements and 3DS dates and announcements. So basically: Business as usual for MS, Sony going more above and beyond than usual and Nintendo being Nintendo, pretty much.

So let’s talk about the 3 main conferences. What worked, what didn’t, who sucked, who didn’t, stuff like that.
