PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 Review

PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 is the official sequel to the XBLA original in 2007, and while we saw a “DX” quasi-sequel in 2011, it was everything from the original PAC-MAN Championship Edition and and improved greatly on those systems. PAC-MAN Championship Edition took risks with moving away from a pure survival for high-score focused gameplay and instead focused on a more strategic type of play for high-scores. PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 doesn’t quite take the same risks, doesn’t have a graphical leap with new consoles, and instead plays it safe with “more of the same” in delivering fast and energetic gameplay, at a cost of feeling fresh.

One Piece: Burning Blood Review

“Oh look it’s another One Piece game” is probably something that is mumbled across players breathes when a new title in the franchise is released. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing, but the franchise gets more love then most when it comes to videogame releases. While most of the more recent releases have been brawlers or RPGs, here we have a fighting games. Does it have enough action and interesting for fans and newcomers though?

PAC-MAN 256 Review

Hipster Whale’s take on PAC-MAN with PAC-MAN 256 was an instant hit on mobile. The mobile version was free, but with ads. If you wanted extra currency, you could watch an ad, or you’d have to wait for a reward. PAC-MAN 256 eschews all of that to prove it’s a game that can stand without ad support. It is an endless runner (of sorts) that has you attempting to gain a high score while unlocking power-ups to ensure your place atop the leaderboard. It’s such a unique and exciting way to play, you’ll have a hard time stopping.

Sometime in the near future, a new PlayStation Vita game is about to drop into players hands. That said, the near future also a perilous time in the world of Ray Gigant as huge menacing creatures have attacked and only a few people have the power to stop them, one in particular.

Sword Art Online: Lost Song Review

Hi, my name is Justin and I do not watch the anime this game is based off of. That said, I did find some enjoyment in the game Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment. It took an extended and alternate storyline to the ending of the series and expanded on the idea and franchise. It was a fun experience, but one that seemed a bit average at times if not repetitive. Do I find the same results with this sequel? Yes and no. Lost Song starts on the idea that the players from the initial incident in the anime, who were once stuck in a MMO online for 2 years, are now back into the world of gaming. I don’t know if I could ever personally play a videogame again if I knew it killed my friends and had the potential to kill me in real life, but as some people know, MMO games can be addictive and even deadly. Life, imitating art, imitating life, quite possibly.

Tales of Zestiria Review

The Tales franchise was first introduced to me via Symphonia back on the Nintendo GameCube, and I absolutely adored it, bringing me into the world of Tales games and keeping me around for all the other titles after. Fast forward to 2015 and we have seen a ton of Tales games since, each with their own unique story and some even with a sequel. Now we have the latest entry, and Tales fans everywhere are probably pretty excited. It’s safe to say right at the start, if players into JRPG games, this is one to jump into.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Review

Dragon Ball Z is something of a relic for me. I grew up watching episodes with my high school friends.  It was an interesting show, with too much filler episodes, but yet had some awesome fight scenes when they did show up.  Luckily with game versions of the series, players get to take control and beat the crap out of enemies instead. We have had a ton of DBZ games, so does this one stand out at all?
