Alright, some of my friends know that I'm known to play a lot of doujin games. (Small Japanese games little under or over 200 MB.) So I decided sometimes I would review a few or not. As for this one, I wanted to review this before I shoved it off my HD since it was so hard to find. This game is called a "kinetic novel" (a visual novel that's suited for under 18 and only has one route.) It was developed by Visual Arts Key, the same people who created Air, Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters!, Angel Beats!. and the upcoming visual novel, Rewrite. This game is called "Planetarian -The Reverie of a Small Planet- (Chiisana Hoshi no Yume)"
In Planetarian, you are known as the "Junker" in a post-apocalyptic world. Trying to survive on your own in this always-raining world from robots like giant "fiddler crabs" that shoot lasers. One day, he enters a rundown building which apparently is a planetarium. Surprisingly to himself, there was an active android there (which he was about to shoot.) She called herself Yumemi (but I remember it as Reverie, but it doesn't matter anymore.) And that's when there's odd story unfolded.
The game is all about those 2 trying to get to cope with each other and trying to fix the planetarium. And since the Junker has never seen anything outside the rain in his life (born in the rain as well,) it gives amazing detail to what happens when the planetarium is actually is fixed as well as in the ending of the novel. I would've been nicer if it were longer. I give it an 8/10
When I heard this game finally came out I HAD to play it and see how it was. And apparently, I loved how they improved upon it. Although sadly, I don't like the comments around the net on how people think about it. If you know nothing about Bioshock, it's a game made by 2K Games, the same people who made Borderlands. People think this is a "scary" game, but it's all on your experience on scary movies. I myself, have been exposed to scary movie since I has a little one, so it wasn't much, so I thought this was great.
The story setting is COMPLETELY different from the 1st Bioshock game. You are a "Big Daddy." A kind of enemy from back in the 1st game who takes awhile to kill that is accompanied by a "Little Sister" little girls supplied with ADAM (game talks about wth that is...) Anyways you are the oldest Big Daddy in the game someone named Delta Herr, aka "Subject Delta." In the beginning of the game you follow your little sister around, Eleanor. Until these guys, splicers, take her and knock you unconscious. Then some lady tells you Eleanor is not yours anymore and orders you to kills yourself. Somehow you live and your quest starts there...
Bioshock 2 has a LOT more weapons and weapon upgrades from the last one. Not to mention new monsters like the "Big Sister." (Hate that bitch.) Also, unlike the 1st Bioshock, there's more endings. 4 of them. 2 neural good/bad and 2 very good/bad endings. It all depends on your choices on who you kill and whether you take ADAM from the sisters or not. My tip for the game: ALWAYS use the camera. Also I gotta say this even if it is a minor spoiler: older Eleanor is hot and badass. xD; *cough* AAAAAnyways, good game and gameplay only peeve about it is the mouse control. I give the game a 8/10
Created by Square Enix, famous for tons of anime and Final Fantasy games as well as other games, The Last Remnant is a straight turn-based RPG game like Final Fantasy. And like Final Fantasy, TLR has graphic cutscenes with voice actors most known from English dubbed anime. Actually, you can also switch the voicing and subtitle to Japanese too. Those voice actors are known well in anime too. Among the English VAs the one taht would easily that one get noticed would be Johnny Bosch's (Black Ranger, Ichigo) voice, and among the Japanese VA's the one well known would be Ono Daisuke who has done a ton of stuff (Haruhi, Umineko, Kaze no Stigma.)
The story starts off with the main character, Rush Sykes looking for his sister, Irina Sykes, who's no where to be found. Rush finds a battle between 2 factions, whom you get to control one of them as a tutorial practice. A short cutscene follows as Rush thinks he saw Irina among the fight. Apparantly it wasn't Irina. They both fall into a hole and the story continues from there.
TLR is LONG, and I srsly mean it. I think it's longer than Fallout 3 or Borderlands. It has great graphics and final attacks and everything, I love, but I STILL haven't beaten it! xD; To me that signifys that it's a good game. I wished it had some kind of internet or multiplayer function, then it'd be perfect. I give it a 9/10.
If you're not going to watch this whole video, at LEAST watch this final boss ending, it's EPIC!!!
Ok, I've been waiting to complete a decent upload of a video to do something for this game. This overlooked game is one of those games that shouldn't be missed.
The story, shortly, is about a "guy" who encounters a mysterious woman who worships someone name "Ormazd" with powers trying to save ur crumbling town from something called the Corruption and "Arihiman" (I probably spelt that wrong.)
PoP has decent to almost great graphics (great to my opinion) if not great, then outstanding gameplay movement. Gameplay battle is like cutscenes each fight. Depending on what button you push, determines your attack combo. But...you can fail at those combos as well.
Unlike other games, PoP is a game where you have a health gauge or HP system, it's more of a -if you fall, you'll revert back to a certain point to where you where running (thanks to your magical girl buddy.) Also the voice acting is great in this. If you're on PC, press T to talk and hear a lot of funny dialogue even during battle. The cons of this game I can think of, it can get a tiny bit repetitive at times, but I, myself, don't play this game all in one go, so I wouldn't know. I give this game a 7.5/10.
Hi, Nate here. Ok, this isn't an ACTUALLY review on S4 League, since I already reviewed it already. This is a lookback to the game to it's big update, "Arcade Mode," which can be played solo, an you can earn great prizes if you beat all the lvls, but on the flipside, if you die a lot, you can lose a LOT of in-game cash. It's best to play it with a team, but it's NOT a good way to develop teamwork, imo. My opinion, Touchdown mode gives you cash faster, but ur you're willing to complete all the lvls, you have a chance to hit jackpot on the game. The mode gets a 7/10, try it out!
is that a DSI XL in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Nintendo has once again done it. They have created something for their system that should have been there from the beginning. Remember the release of the Motion Plus that came last year for the Wii? A lot of us thought it should be have been the Wii Standard with it claims of great motion control, but that aside, we are about to have the Nintendo DS XL, or LL as it also known by. Just a short time after the American release of the DSi; the DSi XL was hitting the market in Japan a year ago , and a year later we are getting it here in the states.
An improved version of the DS, the DSi XL, will be sporting 4.5 inch screens , which is roughly around 90-95 percent bigger than original DSi. The size of these screens isn’t the only change with them though. The screens are now designed that people surrounding or watching to the side, can see the screen as clear as the person sitting in front of it. While still being aimed as a individual gaming system, it does offer some nice family interacting, and no more awkward angling when trying to show friends what is going on in the screen.
With a weight of 314 grams, and measurements of 91.4 mm long × 161 mm wide × 21.2 mm tall, the DSi XL is the longest, widest and heaviest of the DS models. The DSi XL will be sporting Two Stylus ( One large, and one small) and come with the games: Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math, and Photo Clock, as well as two free applications: the Nintendo DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio. Battery Life has also been improved over the DSi on all brightness settings; for example, batteries last 13–17 hours on the lowest level of brightness
At a price of $189.99(USD) being released this march if you haven’t already got a regular DSi, hell even trade the one you have in for this, as I’m sure there will be trade-up offers to grab one of these guys. Though, I still stick with my original thought: Nintendo should have made this to begin with.
