Excerpt: Blazblue: Calamity Trigger is a 2d beat em up direct from the jaws of the Japanese gaming market. Although it is similar to the Street Fighter franchise, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger distances itself a little from the precise and sometimes geeky approach of its counterpart. It delivers a fighting system that is more user friendly and attempts to capture some of the casual gaming market with effortless button controls that can be easily picked up and played rather than...
Summary: Am I playing 2D fighting game or a drug-induced gothic hallucination? BlazBlue features a stable of improbable characters using ridiculous attacks to beat each other up in satisfying ways. Underneath the slick designs and outlandish action is a challenging and complex fighter, but don't expect the game to help you discover its depth.
Excerpt: Square Enix is hailed by many as the king of JRPG’s (Japanese role play games). If you forego the inevitable effeminate main characters and the usual Japanese insanity, Square usually come up with fairly solid games. Their latest release The Last Remnant treads a different path from Square ’s usual titles, attempting to merge the worlds of strategy and role play. A risky tactic as different doesn’t necessarily mean better.
Conclusion: Playing online games in this game will bring you right back to the old days of playing Street Fighter Alpha at the arcade. With the ability to have party's and spectators it just screams play me. I would only suggest a purchase if you are a hardcore fan though. But, at $59.99 for the Limited Edition why not pick this gem up.
Excerpt: Learning curves are a bitch. And Arc Systems' learning curves are even bitchier. And when it comes to learning everything in an Arc Systems beat-em-up to play it competently then, well, the game is going to make you its bitch. Thankfully, though, the limited edition comes packaged with a DVD that explains just what the hell is going on with all the characters.
Excerpt: A game’s intro is supposed to get you excited by setting the tone, but all too often it just leads to disappointment. That’s not the case here though, playing BlazBlue looks every bit as good as its well produced anime-style intro. The fighters are all large, beautiful and meticulously hand drawn sprites. If only more games used hand drawn images in full HD.
