  • Blog Post: High marks for an old game.

    So I was really surprised how much I was disappointed in this game. First, it had absolutely nothing to do with the difficulty. In fact, it's not really hard. It feels exactly like the old nintendo days where it was just trail and error over and over until you got it. Think Mega Man, Castlevania... More

  • Blog Post: The hardest game this generation is one of the best games ever.

    Dark Souls is hard... really hard. But I love it. The game looks beautiful, the gameplay is fantastic and the game can be quite scary. There was only one issue I had with the game and that was the frame rate would drop during areas with lots of enemies, which was really quite annoying. But is this game... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls: classic difficulty for a new generation

    There were so many times playing through Dark Souls that I wanted to chuck the game out the window.

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE “Prepare to die” a phrase not created by me, but by the marketing team from the publisher, Namco Bandai. For the few readers on campus who may have played the Playstation 3 Cult Classic Demon’s Souls (released as a PS3 exclusive back in 2009... More
  • Blog Post: Unbelievably Difficult but Amazingly Rewarding

    Demon Souls was an R.P.G. that defined the rewarding aspect in the difficulty of gaming. With every boss came a key to the next challenge lying behind that corridor. Every enemy gives you the resource you need to improve, souls. This idea is restated in Dark Souls, but it is also improved upon to the... More
  • Blog Post: The most brilliant RPG ever created

    As long as I have been playing video games, no other game has left me as overwhelmed by its atmosphere, stunned by its design, or enthralled with its gameplay as Demon's Souls. I played it about a year after it released, and it instantly shot to my "Top 5 Games I've Ever Played" list... More

  • Blog Post: Dark Souls: You'll Die and You'll Like It… Mostly

    This review was done on Xbox 360. As a player who never played From Software's Demon's Souls and grew up with turned based RPGs (most heavily based on Dungeons & Dragons), Dark Souls comes as a breath of fresh air, if inhaled through the blood filling your mouth from the game punching you...

  • Blog Post: Further Details in Addition....

    I agree with Phil's comments and most of the other reviews. Trying to figure out which direction will lead to further advancement in the game is almost impossible without looking at the walk-through, and it is possible to drop or have Frampt eat a ring that will limit your chances for progression...

  • Blog Post: I was not ready for this.

    Never before Mirrors Edge's speed runs have I played a game that required such precise timing and perfection.
