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.
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.
Another installment to Namco’s Tales series, A pleasant stroll down memory lane for veterans, while a easy to navigate co-op JRPG for the those just starting out with the franchise.
Dark Souls 2 will be having a closed beta this October on PS3… BRING ON THE PAIN!
XCOM: Enemy Within will be available this coming November.
Overkill Software has built upon the success of their first game Payday: The Heist, and once again proven that not many things are as fun as grabbing some friends and spending an evening pulling off high-risk, high-reward bank heists and jewelry store robberies. The stress induced by shouting over your microphone just to be heard above the sound of high-powered rifles, screaming hostages and flashbangs is incredible, and every successful job will leave the player with a massive adrenaline rush.
