  • Excerpt: Ten years is a long time. Wait, I think I've started a review this way already. Anyways, Namco Bandai's Tales series has now been in North America for ten years, and with this auspicious landmark, the popular franchise has made its way to the new generation of consoles with Tales of Vesperia .

The Main Character Isn't a Teen

  • Excerpt: Before the advent of the N64, Namco's Team Wolf squeezed out Tales of Phantasia for the Super Famicom in 1995. Since then, the Tales series has evolved to become a relatively noticeable Namco series, particularly after the success of Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube.

A Familiar Aer About it

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Buying and playing a Tales game is similar to inviting an old friend to dinner: you know exactly how the night will go down. Some may criticize the series for this, while others no doubt find this fact comforting.

  • Excerpt: Walking into Borderlands, I was unsure what to expect from the game.  From its onset, it had been plagued with comparisons to Fallout 3 or Diablo (including from yours truly), leading to the distinct possibility …

The Good, the Bad, and the Just Plain Stoopid

Game Debate
15 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Borderlands was rather hastily compared to everything from Fallout 3 to Diablo 2 in the months before its release, but the recent slew of trailers featuring foul-mouthed robots and psychotic bandits, along with the colourful and controversial cover art, suggested a wicked sense of humour more akin...

  • Pros: The co-op experience is one of the best on the market, The countless loot scattered through the world, The striking, artistic visual quality
  • Cons: The repetitive quests, The lack of a strong storyline, Glitches that got us stuck in awkward situations
