Title: I'm baaaack...

And this time, it's personal.
Er, not really. I just reviewed Conduit 2 and figured I should check the blogs as well. I can't believe it's been so long since my last visit.

The realm of Ransei is on the verge of destruction. Its people live for only two things: war and Pokemon. There are countless warriors roaming the land with their trusted animal companions, each seeking the glory and authority rewarded to the victors. Legends say that if a single warlord were to conquer all 17 kingdoms in Ransei, the creator of the world will return and bestow its powers upon the chosen one. As a result, the various nations are locked in eternal conflict, each vying for the slig...
Mario Tennis is one of the most underrated spinoff series ever conceived. Ever since its debut over a decade ago, itís gained a small, but devout following. While not quite as addictive or challenging as the Mario Kart titles, the games won over audiences with a blend of wacky personality and creativity. They demonstrated how the normally tepid sports genre could be made fun and interesting. Though Mario eventually branched out into other pastimes like soccer and baseball, his tenn...
Eons ago, two titans clashed in the middle of an endless ocean. The Bionis and the Mechonis Ė essentially the deities of natural and mechanical life respectively Ė fought each other for reasons unknown. Neither side prevailed; locked in an eternal stalemate, both beings eventually died with their bodies petrified in mid-battle stances. Rather than succumbing to the ravages of time, their corpses gradually became a new world. Forests, valleys, whole civilizations grew on top of the fallen ...
Samus may have returned, but as failure.
Kid Icarus is finally back, and in style.
Game: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND (PlayStation 3)

Extend might not be original, but it is built upon the best.
One of the best games ever made is back, and now itís in the palm of your hand.
Itís got a lot of great ideas, but ultimately falls short of its potential.
Game: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (PlayStation 3)
Posted: September 04, 2011 (01:19 AM)
El Shaddai has a lot of interesting ideas, but it fails to fully implement them.
There could have been so much more to Samurai Warriors ChroniclesÖbut there isnít.
For a game thatís designed to promote a movie, Dark of the Moon will probably encourage you to skip it entirely.
While it might not be as good as the originals, Continuum Shift II is still a fight worth having.
Vampire Moon: The Mystery of the Hidden Sun takes a good idea and does absolutely nothing with it.
Conduit 2 is fine for Wii owners searching for a decent shooter, but fans of the genre shouldnít expect anything special from it.
Itís not easy being Samus Aran. Sheís the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxyÖbut thatís all anyone cares about. Everyone knows about her insanely powerful weapons, legendary battles, and the mass destruction sheíll inevitably trigger. But they all forget something far more important: thereís a person hiding beneath those layers of impenetrable armor and advanced technology. Not just the cold and calculating killer, but an introspective, flawed, and vulnerable individual. Such things donít m...
Revenge. For Ragna the Bloodedge, itís the only thing that matters. His life has been ruinedÖand heís finally figured out who to blame. Itís not just about the huge bounty the Librarium put on him; he can deal with being hunted down like an animal, harassed by vigilantes and wannabe heroes. Ragna is more than capable enough of handling those pests. Heís a one-man killing machine; armed with the limitless magic of the Azure Grimore, heís almost wiped out whatís left of the corrupt government. Ití...
Simon Belmont is dying. The once great champion of the Belmont family- the man who killed Dracula and saved the world - is coming to a cruel and painful demise. He can barely hold his legendary whip anymore. Not just because heís grown weak, but because his body canít handle the movements. His old wounds are still aching. His muscles are slowly rotting off his bones. His skin has become pale, lifeless. Itís not old age; itís only been seven years since the first game. Itís something far worse: D...
Dracula is alive. Well, as much as a vampire can be. Heís spent at least a century rotting inside of a coffin, but that doesnít stop him from getting back into the swing of things. Now that heís been resurrected, he can continue with his favorite pastimes. Ruling over his vast, magical estate of Castlevania. Restoring the decrepit ruins of his home. Tending to his menagerie of mythical, demonic creatures. Getting in touch with old friends, regardless if theyíre still living. Spreading his evil ...
They never should have sent Isa Jo. He was just a rookie. A child, compared to the other soldiers. But that wasnít the problem; he couldíve handled the mission. The objective was simple: destroy the enemy recon unit from the other dimension. Thatís all. Isa had both the weapons and combat skills to get the job done. As the son of the protagonists of the original Sin and Punishment, he was also far stronger than a regular human. He could have killed his target on sightÖbut he didnít. He wa...
Game: Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - The Crystal Bearers (Wii)
Posted: January 23, 2010 (10:54 PM)
The magic is gone. It vanished over a thousand years ago, when the Yuke Tribe lost the war and was wiped off the face of the planet. With no one around to cast spells or summon monsters, technology took center stage. Civilization has progressed from a bunch of warring factions into bustling cities and decadent kingdoms. Swords are nothing more than relics; even the lowliest of soldiers carries a rifle. Even the chocobos, those iconic beasts of the Final Fantasy universe, are outpaced by a...
