Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released April 10, 2015 for North America and Europe and will be exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS and New 3DS XL. The eShop version of this game will be 3.6GB in size (digital copy), so if you bought the New Nintendo 3DS XL and haven’t upgrade the stock 4GB MicroSD card, a physical copy is the best choice. Many RPG fans already have an eye on this game, including myself. It might bring back the glory of the great Final Fantasy era, but on portable.

Enjoy the 7 minutes of the gameplay from IGN.

Fury- A war film that packs a punch, when it stays on track

War films have long dominated the cinema, and have provided us with plenty of dramatic and thrilling sequences on the big screen. From the storming of Omaha beach in Saving Private Ryan to the helicopters storming a Vietnamese village accompanied by Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” in Apocalypse Now, war movies have given us some powerful and memorable images. Now Brad Pitt, in the lead role and that of producer, along with director David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), seeks to join that lineage of great war movies with Fury. And, for the most part, they succeed, save for a sequence midway where things go a little off track. Fortunately things get back to business after that to deliver a thrilling finale that proves satisfying, even if it is a bit predictable.

Fury is set in April, 194...

Dying Light- Impressions so far

Let me begin by saying that this is not my full review of Techland’s open world zombie game Dying Light. These are just my impressions of spending the first six hours with the game. The game is a lengthy one, and a full scored review will be posted once I complete the game. With that out of the way, this is what I think about the game so far.

Dying Light is another foray into games dealing with a zombie outbreak in first person view by developer Techland. Techland has previously brought us Dead Island and its follow-up, Dead Island: Riptide. But this is not a return to the blood soaked tropical island of Banoi...
