Xenoblade Chronicles

- Wii

Well before I review this let me just sit back and revel in the fact that for once a game came out in Australia and not the USA. Just give me a minute... ahh! Ok enough of that. Believe it or not Xenoblade Chronicles actually is a good step forward in the realm of JRPGs, keep reading to find out more. The story of Xenoblade Chronicles is deep and interesting. It starts with 2 giant titans ca...

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3

- Xbox 360

Oh my god... I am so damn exhausted with Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 right now... by which I mean I've put in 76 hours into this game and I need sleep! Yeah I actually am a person who enjoys the Warriors series of games but does putting 76 hours into this game mean it's good? Well either check the score(for those with no time or patience) or read on to find out. Ok the story for this game is a...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

- Nintendo DS

Ok let me save you time here if you don't like reading reviews that are long because this one may be pretty long. Perfect score, must buy, wait until more 3DS games worth owning to come out to buy a 3DS if you don't own one. Ok? Ok now lets do this. *cracks fingers* Let me get personal to start with. I played Ocarina Of Time for the first time when it came out in 1998 and I was 13. A time in...

inFamous 2

- PS3

inFamous is one of those games that is a sequel with very small amounts of change made on it's original. I found the small changes interesting but it didn't really change it very much, to the point of not really being noticeable. Also it took me 5 days to finish the game... 5 DAYS! I never take longer then 3 unless it's a JRPG or an Assassin's Creed game. The question is, is it a good game? Rea...

Duke Nukem Forever

- Xbox 360

Wow, has it really been 15 years since the game was in development? OF COURSE IT'S BEEN! But the big questions are has Duke Nukem Forever reached expectations and has he aged well. In short No he didn't meet expectations for some but did for me and No he hasn't aged well because he hasn't changed and I like that. I mention that he hasn't reached expectations or aged well because the audience wh...

The 3rd Birthday

- PSP

God I am pissed off at this game for 3 reasons, the name of the game, the lack of special powers in the game and the ending! The 3rd birthday is the 3rd Parasite Eve game but under a different name that closes the door on the franchise. That's part of the reason the ending pissed me off. Anyway let's get to my review before I turn this review into a rant. It's been a long time since we saw a...

Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy

- PSP

Ok before I jump on the review of this game I'll give you a short review of Dissidia 012(Duodecim) Final Fantasy: Prologus. It's a pay for demo with a 10 minute story that is irrelevant and an arcade mode. It's only worth it for the sake of having Aerith as a support character in the proper game and unlockable items to transfer to the proper game. Don't bother downloading it unless you're a sup...

Oh and Something to do with...

LittleBigPlanet 2

- PS3

Man I can't believe they made a second one of these, also I can't believe the dimwits at Gamestop/EB Games are accepting the first one as trade in, suckers! I can tell you right now that I loved the first one and guess what? Loved the second one too! Ok on to the review! The story of this one has an evil being destroying and taking over Craftworld called the Negativatron and it's up to your...

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded

- Nintendo DS

Ok let me get this out of the way before the review starts. If you don't already know I am a huge fan of Kingdom Hearts, to the point where I even own a Keyblade. Ok Now that you know, lets get started! Here's my first review of 2011, Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. It's only been 5 months since Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep was released and having a new one so shortly after the last one strikes o...

Donkey Kong Country Returns

- Wii

Ok I have had 2 problems playing this game. One is the weather in Australia is extremely hot and two, the game is more frustrating to play when your sweating to death. A new Donkey Kong game hasn't come out since Donkey Kong 64 and a new Donkey Kong Country since '96. How well does this one do? Keep reading to find out. Here's my review of Donkey Kong Country Returns. Donkey Kong Country R...

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

- Nintendo DS

In 2001 a relatively unknown JRPG was released called Golden Sun. A sequel which was technically the second half came out in 2003. It became a cult hit and was way better then most JRPGs that had come out in the same decade. Now at the end of 2010, a new sun has risen and it's blinding light is awesome! Ok over dramatic but hey, I'm trying to set the scene. It's been 7 LONG years since the last...

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

- PS3

After spending god knows how many hours playing the story mode and dabbling in with the multiplayer a bit I'm now ready to finally get this review done. Here's my review of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The story of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood continues straight after Assassin's Creed II and I mean it actually starts right after the ending of Assassin's Creed II. You return to the role...

Vanquish

- PS3

Well who would have thought Platinum Studios would make a good game? Anyone who played the other games made from Platinum that's who! Seriously Vanquish is a really good game and here's my review to back it up. The story of Vanquish is another one of those ones that makes Russia the bad guy and America the hero... well that's what you'd think at first. A Russian group called Russian Star d...

Atelier Rorona: Alchemist of Arland

- PS3

Another JRPG has managed to slide through the borders and you'll probably never play it since it probably won't be on any game shelves or some other stupid reason or you're just not a fan of the JRPG genre. I honestly hate how in Australia these games are preorder only at every game retailer. Ok I'm running off topic, anyway what was I doing? Oh yeah, the game! Well here's my review of Atelier...

Final Fantasy Gaiden: The Four Warriors of Light

- Nintendo DS

Ugh... another spin-off... again... why? Well that would normally be me when it comes to spin-offs since the first DS Final Fantasy. Believe it or not this Final Fantasy looks like a repellent but if you put the time in, it shows it's true colours. To be honest I came into this game as a sceptic but it's actually made me have a little more faith in the franchise. Well here's my review of Final...
