Also, runner up for best female character: Elena Fisher. It's tough to beat GLaDOS though.
So wait... Does the article say "Minecraft is no longer the only blocky sandbox building game out there"?
Or does it say "Minecraft is no longer the only voxel game out there?"
Because, last I checked, "blocky sandbox building game" was a pretty good description of FortressCraft and Total Miner, whether they're voxel games or not...
Note that this is the MOST EPIC fights, not the best/most innovative/most intense/etc. It's the fights that pit a ridiculously powerful/gigantic/potentially world-ending creature against a mere mortal, and, in one case, a group of kids.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. The first one was actually pretty good.
This game was much better than I expected it to be.
Inafune feels awful about it. He has made an official apology:
“The decision for the cancelation was out of my sphere, but as someone who took part in the development, I’d like to convey something to the staff: I’m sorry that I couldn’t be of assistance. [To the fans of the series,] I’m truly sorry I couldn’t take part through the end.”
BlazBlue is great. It will be nice to finally have a real HD handheld version.
