As one of the most hardcore action RPGs on the market, Dark Souls II takes no pity on its players. The same can be said of the hero in this fan-made video, which has so much '80s B-movie flavor it hurts.
For many JRPG fans, Tales of Symphonia was their great introduction to Namco Bandai’s Tales series. It was the first fully 3D polygonal Tales game and the first Tales game that was widely popularized in the U.S. Heck, it even had its own Tales development team named after it, Team Symphonia. It was well received, but had a few flaws if only because Namco Bandai was still figuring out the 3D Tales formula at the time. Now it’s back with an high-def facelift, along with it’s sequel Tales of Symphonia 2: Dawn of the New World, in the newly released compilation: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. It’s a great remake that reminds us why we fell in love with the Tales franchise in the first place.
In this recent unveiling of Dark Souls 2's Japanese Collector's Edition, we find the perfect mini-weapons that we'd want to bring to a mini-campfire.
Those with a death wish for going beyond Dark Souls 2's normal campaign are going to be happy when they hear about the game's likelihood of getting downloadable content.
On the surface, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z looks like a shallow mess of unbalanced gameplay mechanics meant solely to satisfy die-hard fans of the DBZ anime and manga franchise. However, when you sit down and actually play the game, you realize that it’s so much worse. In an attempt to simplify Battle ofl Z’s mechanics and introduce new team battles, Namco Bandai has managed to remove what little depth Dragon Ball Z fighting games had to offer.
See that picture above? That's us. We're all going to feel that... multiple times over as we try to explore down every nook and cranny of Lordran while we're running for our lives. And why would we bother trying to explore every piece of Dark Souls II's murderous world? Because we have finally gotten to read the leaked achievement list of Dark Souls II. And we would like to thank the teams at From Software and Namco Bandai for being some of the most malicious developers that ever were.
This series might be synonymous with exploration, death and agony, but it looks like we're going to be addicted to it yet again.
Gregg is the sophomore release of independent developer Play Fripp, which is comprised of a one man team. But we were genuinely surprised to find that a solo act was able to produce such a quality game as Gregg. The puzzle genre has found its mainstay in the handheld and mobile markets, so Gregg certainly has a lot of perplexing competition. Fortunately, Gregg excels in three distinct areas that cement it as a harmless necessity - polish, charm and physics.
Are you as shocked as I was that someone is still making Pac-Man games? Apparently, Namco still feels there’s a market for the yellow cheese wheel whose best days are behind him. Don’t be fooled by the great old school Pac-Man games that were released on XBLA, PSN, and iOS. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is a 3D platforming game complete with voice-overs, plot development, and endlessly collectible items. Consider yourself warned.
