Monsters, dragons and arms. A RPG triple threat now in stores

By Spencer . August 28, 2007 . 9:37pm

A quick reminder that Wild ARMs 5 with the original Japanese theme song in the game should be in your local retailer by the time you read it. I know Persona 3 has been fomenting excitement in the RPG community, but this deserves a fair share of attention too. Look for Wild ARMs 5 stuff […]

Watch: The beginning of Wild ARMs 5

By Spencer . August 16, 2007 . 8:08pm

I’m just beginning to dive into Wild ARMs 5 and in the first hour it managed to captivate me. The story begins with Dean, who likes to run around in a poncho and attack with a shovel. He starts out in the runs digging for golem parts. See, when Dean was a little kid he […]

By Spencer . July 26, 2007 . 7:09pm

As we mentioned way back at E3, XSeed Games is going to bring Hajime no Ippo Revolution out in North America. It’s a motion controlled boxing game, but it looks more technical than Wii Sports. This video gives a demonstration of how it plays and what kinds of different punches you can do with motion […]

By Katie . July 26, 2007 . 11:28am

Though I’d never heard of it, in Japan, the novel Brave Story has been serialized as manga, animated, and digitized into video game form. A tale spun from the yarn of Alice in Wonderland or perhaps The Wizard of Oz, the original story arc follows a boy named Wataru, whose mother can be cured of […]

By shoving L, T and straight line pieces together you can build a cozy home for goblins. Making a dungeon is pretty user friendly, you just walk […]

Building a dungeon in Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground

By Spencer . May 29, 2007 . 7:08pm

If I learned anything from playing Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground, monsters are fickle. You can’t build a dungeon with straight forward corridors and hope goblins will appear. You have to add in corkscrew turns and build a labyrinth for bats to hang out in. But it just can’t be a plain dungeon with dirt corridors, […]

Valhalla Knights: endless dungeons to test your patience

By Katie . April 18, 2007 . 10:17am

Since the time of my last writing, Valhalla Knights and I have struck up a kind of mutual understanding, despite a stalemate of wills. I’ve come to appreciate the grueling curve to its difficulty, while totally disregarding it in my mad dash to progress; the game keeps me in line, saying, “that is not how […]
