The Guided Fate Paradox - PSN Review

First off - Happy almost-Halloween! Bit late for a background update to match the season, but I went ahead and made a quick one. Now, onto the main event:

The Guided Fate Paradox is a title I caught a trailer of in passing a few months ago, and I have been looking forward to it since. I cannot put my finger on just what it was about the game that caught my eye back then, and even asking most of my friends about it, most have not heard much about it aside from what I have been telling them. Their loss - but I will encourage the JRPG fans among them to give this one a go as soon as it releases on PlayStation Network on November 5th.


The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1: Faith - Xbox Live Review

I admit I have only played a small portion of The Walking Dead, the hugely popular episodic game released by Telltale Games. It is not that I am not interested - quite the opposite, I just keep getting distracted from it. I have it and I have watched my son enough to know I would no doubt enjoy it. Still, as much as I like the series and enjoy a good zombie game, the idea of The Wolf Among Us appealed to me even more.


A preview of The Guided Fate Paradox

One of the games I have really been looking forward to this fall has been The Guided Fate Paradox. NIS America has released some new screenshots, a trailer and some character art I figured I would share.


Super Stardust HD - PSN Review

I owned an Xbox 360 before I had my PlayStation 3, and most of my friends who had an Xbox 360 were hooked on a little game called Geometry Wars. I played the demo and liked it enough for the most part, but it never quite clicked with me for some reason. Fast forward another year or so, and I had a PlayStation 3 and one of the first titles I picked up was the similar but much flashier looking Super Stardust HD.


Preview: Infinity Wars - PC

There are a lot of collectible or trading card games out there these days (CCG or TCG depending on your favorite term), and while they seem to be flooding the mobile market, a few notable ones have made their way to bigger screens as well. In the last year we have seen the latest Magic: The Gathering hit just about every format imaginable, and I still think Might & Magic: Duel of Champions is an outstanding offering as well.


Skydive: Proximity Flight - PSN Review

Heights in video games seldom 'get to me', as there are usually several disconnects that keep me from getting completely immersed in the situation. Skydive however, is all about the heights and there were a few moments when I found the ground rushing up to me and I was pulling back a bit harder than normal - or leaning with my body as well as the controller to try and bank around a mountain's edge.


Girl Fight - PSN Review

Girl Fight is not trying to set the bar for creative storytelling here, as it was obviously marketed to a very specific demographic. The permise circles around a collection of lovely women gathered up by a nebulous group by the name of THE FOUNDATION. These subjects are then virtually reconstructed in a device called The Mainframe, and these women are pitted against one another in an attempt to escape.


WipEout HD - PSN Review

I am not by nature a huge fan of racing games. Mario Kart is a pretty good example of how realistic I want them to be. I have played some like Forza, Gran Turismo and Project Gotham Racing, and I am neither terribly good at nor particularly enamored with them. They are generally fun in small bursts, but I do not log hours upon hours with most racing games.


Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers Expansion - PC/PS3 Review

I was very happy with the earlier Magic 2014 release, reviewing it at 8.25 out of 10. It introduced some new sealed deck options, cards with lots of new mechanics and thankfully - more deck variety than the prior couple of releases.


Batman: Arkham Asylum - PS3 Review

Licensed games have a really rough history in the video game industry. E.T anyone? But every now and then a few of them get it right, and thankfully Batman: Arkham Asylum is a great example of a well-known character being treated right. I have owned it for a while now, but for whatever reason I never sat down and played through it. I still have Arkham City sitting on the shelf next to it, but I promise it will be getting played sooner than later after having experienced Asylum.


Military Madness: Nectaris - PSN Review

Military Madness: Nectaris is one of the older games out there for the PlayStation Network, and one of those I have had sitting on my hard drive for a very long time. The turn-based strategic combat of Military Madness years ago always appealed to me, so I was anxious to dive back into this game and give it a go.


Persona 4 Arena - Xbox 360 Review

It was pretty recently I wrapped up playing Persona 4 Golden, which I absolutely loved. It is still my favorite PlayStation Vita game to date. I have actually been sitting on Persona 4 Arena for a few months now - but I kept putting off playing it because the events of this title were set two months after Persona 4. It was a good decision to wait, because while anyone can pick up Persona 4 Arena and play it, I definitely felt a stronger connection to the characters I knew from Persona 4 Golden than I did to the ones from Persona 3 I did not know anything about.
