Review: The Guided Fate Paradox

Paradox_LOGO_black

Renya Kagurazaka’s bad luck bottomed out when he tried his hand at his local mall’s lottery machine stand. He only did it because he
was told to by the cute girl running the stand.

He spun it, expecting nothing, but ended up getting the golden ball, winning the grand prize!

“Congratulations, Mister Winner! You have won the grand prize!”

The girl smiles widely at Renya as she rings the celebratory bell to indicate a winner.

“I shall let you become God.”

God’s story begins like many others – boy meets girl, boy is smashed over the head with a blunt object by girl, boy is now God.

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Faith

2013-10-14_00015

Fairy tales living among us. That is, in essence, the premise of the Wolf Among Us. Based on the Fables graphic novel series by DC comics and Vertigo, we are taken to a world where fables have been booted from their stories and hide among our us.
Telltale Games chose to give us another episodic adventure. Reminiscent of choose your own adventure novels and games of old, The Wolf Among Us is more of a story telling medium than what most people might consider a game. Whether that is a good or bad thing is up to the player to decide. Regardless, I can’t help but draw comparisons to Telltale’s last popular title, The Walking Dead.

Review: Beyond: Two Souls

Beyond: Two Souls aims to be one of the most story driven and emotional games ever. It has Hollywood actors, it has lifelike graphics, it has vast amounts of motion capture, and it has something that kind of sort of resembles gameplay. While there is a lot of story, and there are emotional events and there is gameplay, none of them really hit the mark. This game feels like a broken vase that has been glued back together and called a work of art.

If you are a fan of strategy RPGs or are just curious about trying them out, this is the game to ease you into the genre. While Disgaea 2 is not the first in the series it can stand on its own, fans of previous titles will be happy to see the characters once again but new players will not be lost.
