At first, all I was going to do was tell of my time playing Dark Souls 2 but then, out of nowhere, I went to play the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. There’ll be more on that later, but first: my time with Dark Souls 2. First of all, let me say that I am easily persuaded by others to jump on the hype train. Sometimes this is worth following, sometimes not...Read More
Monokuma has returned. After seven months, NIS America has published yet another Spike Chunsoft game which involves mysteries and murder. Yes, there’s only one game that players can shoot clues to argue with the statements, arrange each letter to make a word, has a rhythm game, and of course players need to collect their thoughts on how each murder happened. It’s a sequel to what I is feel is among the good, if not the best, games of 2014, Danganronpa.
Danganronpa 2 : Goodbye Despair starts off just as the previous...Read More
Tales of Xillia was a great game from the ‘Tales of …’ series last year on PlayStation 3. The story was seamlessly told from the points of view of two characters, Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell. Now, one year later, the worlds of Rieze Maxia and Elympios continue their story in Tales of Xillia 2. Would it exceed its predecessor, or just fall flat like many sequels?
In ToX2, players control a mostly silent protagonist in Ludger Kresnik...Read More
It’s nice to come back, isn’t it? After a long hiatus, I’ve decided to write again (if I have the time). Honestly, I ran out of ideas as what was to be written in my post. Maybe because I’m burnt out. But then again, since one of my co-worker handed in her resignation letter, I’ve been constantly busy filling her role in the company.
One of the last games I played was Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII...Read More
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...Read More
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 E...Read More
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...Read More
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 (v...Read More
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...Read More
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:
My first platinum...
