Let me start this out by saying Dishonored is an amazing game. It’s full of insane kills, devouring rat swarms, swords and knives, guns, stealth assassinations and all of that awesomeness. The acting is pretty good, and while it’s not the best looking game out there, it’s completely playable, and the more cartoon-ish graphics lend it a sort of atmosphere that just feels right when playing it.
The problem is that I’m just so lazy, and therein lies my discontent with this game.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…
In August 2012, Universal released a fully re-mastered Blu-ray version of the classic thriller Jaws, complete with an overhauled score and visuals. Fittingly enough for Halloween, the aquatic classic has its fair share of scares (see what I did there?), and obviously deserved a nod in out 31 Days of Horror extravaganza.
Fan Expo 2012 is about to hit Toronto and for the weekend of August 23-26th, nerds will rule. This marks the 18th year of Fan Expo and probably the 3 or 4th time I’ve attended… going to comics, sci fi, horror, anime, gaming conferences steels you against the extremes of fandom.
I expect this to be another crazy, cosplay filled, celebrity spotting type of conference; certainly nothing out of the ordinary for Fan Expo.
For a quick look at what’s in store and schedule hilights, read on.
One of the last great titles on the SNES was one that RPG fans had been waiting for with white knuckles. It was a game that was helmed by RPG greatness – both the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest - and in an era where the SNES was on its way out, to be replaced by the 3D Playstation, the game stood to keep people in 2D land just a little longer.The game, of course, was called Chrono Trigger. Find out why it rocked after the jump.
I’ve been dying to find something good to play on my Vita. It’s been a while since I’ve bought it, and there really hasn’t been a great RPG created for it, so I went into the PSN to try and find something awesome.
For RPG fans in Japan, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky has a huge following. It is celebrated as one of the great JRPG’s, and rightfully so. It never really made a splash in North America, but it’s a diamond in the rough, and definitely worth the $20 price tag.
