Xenoblade Chronicles [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Xenoblade has some big shoes to fill, and it does a fair enough job keeping pace with its popular predecessors. While some elements seemed a little too one-dimensional for me, overall it has some really interesting gameplay concepts and a fairly solid battle flow. The ways in which it attempts to incorporate MMO gameplay, however, are what left me feeling a little disenchanted with the title.

The Pros: 

+ Great combat use of "Arts"

+ For Wii-level, has great visuals

+ Has a pretty great storyline 

+ MMO-style fetch quests not tedious at all

The Cons: 

- Characters are very flat and cliché

- Map is a little hard to navigate sometimes around expansive areas

Xenoblade , as a successor to the venerable series for the Playstation 1 and 2, is a game that does not give the impression at all of trying to live up to its predecessors. Monolith did a commendable job at building an RPG that incorporates the series' popular themes while letting it stand on its own as a new title. I will have to admit that going into writing this review took a lot of reflection and a sizeable attempt to remain objective, and in the end the conclusion was reached that this really is a pretty great game.

Customize Your Charlatan in Gotham City Imposters

It was a welcome sight when the initial trailer for Gotham City Imposters debuted at E3 this year and even more so now with the new customization trailer.

We live in a world where gaming is all about player preference. Being able to make your character your own is key to making any game a great experience. This is something that is being adopted for the upcoming downloadable Gotham City Imposters.

As a kid I absolutely adored Batman and loved every aspect of the character.

F.E.A.R. 3 officially announced

A few weeks ago we got an early look at the next installment of the fps horror franchise F.E.A.R.  Aside from concept art that looked like it was box art for a Sega Saturn game, there wasn’t much to go on. Oh, I totally forgot that the name for the project was F.3.A.R., which was quickly lambasted across the internet for being a bit silly.
