Confessions of the Ultimate Student

Imagine that you’re accepted into the country’s number 1 school but then you can’t leave the school ever because the headmaster won’t let you. You can only leave the school once you kill someone, while every other pupil knows nothing of what you’re doing or you stay in the school until you’re dead. This what happens in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc offers a fascinating look at the human condition, expertly delving into the machinations that would cause some to travel down an immoral path. Sure, killing my friends has never entered my mind, but everyone has a breaking point.

From Spike Chunsoft, at first the game has a similar vibe to the Zero Escape series, where we had to escape the facility and somehow deal with the Prisoner’s Dilemma, but ...

Confessions of a Strong Female

You have to admit, women are the best thing that can happen in a man’s life. But what of the women in video games? Call me a freak for liking them, but I do like a strong woman, or in the case of Ada Wong (Resident Evil series), a mysterious woman (though that feeling faded when Resident Evil 6 was released). Not because of her being remodeled, but something seemed amiss with her appearance in the game. I wonder if  it might have been how Capcom managed to mess with Ada’s characterization.

Speaking of Resident Evil, I first fell in love with Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Nemesis. Illogical fashion choice aside, Capcom really made Jill as sexy as possible. Of course, that is when I’m still a kid, not yet knowing the definition of strong women, so I attracted by her sex appeal...

Confessions of Stormy Weather II- Full game review for Lightning Returns

After years of waiting, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII makes it to North America/Europe and marks the conclusion of the Lightning Saga trilogy. Does Lightning make her triumphant return to the franchise, lifting it up to its former glory? Or does the game crash and burn, ending one of the more divisive series in the franchise with a whimper rather than a bang?

Lightning Returns is the successor of two previous games: Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. In Final Fantasy XIII, Lightning and her party members tried to save the world of Cocoon, which resulted in both the characters of Fang and Vanille becoming crystallized. In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning, instead of becoming the main character once again, is downgraded to the supporting cast in favor of Serah and Noel...

Confessions of a Brick

Imagination is the most powerful thing a mind can possess. Ever wonder what would happen if you as a child played with your toys, and then as you grew into an adult you kept those toys on display and away from your children, only to have those children manage to play your collection? The answer may be best left to your kid’s wild imagination, and this thought forms the basis of what could happen in LEGO: The Movie.

The story opens with Lord Business (Will Farrell) battling it out with a character named Vitruvius (voiced by Morgan Freeman) in order to gain possession of kragle. After the battle end, Vitruvius states that there will be someone who will come along and find  “the last piece” and thus bring to an end Lord Business’ reign...

Confessions of an Escapist

One of my reasons to buy games is in the hope that the game challenges my mind. One such game was Catherine. The story for the game was a little bit explicit for younger gamers, but I enjoyed the gameplay and would say that the escape-the-room genre is on my list of challenging games to tackle. The escape genre seems to be overlooked nowadays. Chunsoft tried and successfully revived the genre by making 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors for Nintendo DS (Or better known as Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors). In late 2012, Aksys Games, the publisher of said game, released the sequel for the game dubbed as Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.

In Virtue’s Last Reward there are two sections of the game: a novel section and an escape portion...

Confessions of a Trophy Hunter

Given that the PlayStation 4 already released months ago, the PlayStation 3 has a plethora of games that won’t leave our minds that easily, especially for a trophy hunter, who tries to platinum each game that’s been bought. As for me, I only have 6 (One of those is Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (PSV)) games that I’ve achieved the platinum trophy out of an otherwise big, if not huge, library of games. Here are my platinum games:

Heavy Rain
My first platinum. Doing the platinum run for Heavy Rain was quite fun, as I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. I’ve thought of obtaining platinum for Beyond: Two Souls because of the same direction it takes as Heavy Rain, but I find the story dragged in spots, particularly the part where Jodie lives for a bit with a Navajo family...

Confessions of a Mask- Ys: Memories of Celceta

The Ys series are definitely one of the most sacred JRPGs in Japan but haven’t been well received in other areas, because there weren’t any localized versions made by the publishing company. Prior to the release of their latest game, Falcom, with the help of external parties, has only made 4 games available to western audiences: Ys I & II, Ys: The Oath of Felghana and Ys: The Ark of Napishtim. Now, Falcom adds to that list with a localized version of Ys: Memories of Celceta.

Before they made Memories of Celceta, which is the latest installment in the franchise, in a sense this game has already been made under not just one, but two different titles from other companies...

Confessions of a Monster

Talk about monsters, and one of the most recent that comes to mind is Godzilla. The last Hollywood version of the iconic beast wasn’t well received by everyone, but with a new Godzilla movie coming out in 2014 the big guy is certainly on the minds of giant monsters fans everywhere. This past year we were treated to the Kaiju vs. Jaeger fights in Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. But this isn’t about the role of giant monsters in film. Instead, this is about a table top game that has the players play the part of giant monsters in King of Tokyo, which was created by Richard Garfield.

In King of Tokyo, your goal as the giant monster is either to collect 20 victory points or kill all of the players. The goal seems simple, but to achieve total domination over others, you have to roll 6 die...

Confessions of Superheroes vs. Super Villains- A look at two deck building card games

Love superheroes, no matter whether they are from the Marvel universe or DC Comics? Do you like to play or want to learn how to play a deck building game? If your answer to both questions is yes, then you shouldn’t look any farther than having these two deck building games.

First is the DC Deck Building Game, a card game that everybody should be introduced to. The DC Deck Building Game is easy to learn and perfectly suitable to those who are trying a deck building game for the first time. You can choose Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Cyborg, or The Flash before you start a game. The goal of the game is to collect as many points as you can while defeating groups of super villains that will always start with Ra’s al-Ghul...

My top 10 games of the year- zafrisan85

The time of the year has come where all games compete to gain the ultimate title, namely Game of the Year. In conjunction with VGX, formerly known as VGA, I and the rest of our writers at Leetgamers are also picking our favorite games of the year. Other than the release of next gen consoles, 2013 also can be said as the greatest year for gaming, as there are not just one or two games that can compete for the prestigious award, but many titles that could claim top prize. Before I announce my picks for best games, these are three honorable mentions:

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

For me, the game is definitely better than previous any Assassin’s Creed with the exception of Assassin’s Creed II, but not quite good enough for me to include it in my top 10.

Ni No Kuni

The most touching ga...
