Quickies: Initial Impressions of NHL Hitz, Castlevania HoD, & Kingdom Hearts

I'm not going to be terribly in-depth here, but I figured that I would add my own quick takes on these three games. I know that a couple of folks have already posted Kingdom Hearts impressions, but I...

For the record, I'm not trying to tell anyone that picking up FFXI is a bad idea. I wouldn't want to purposely steer anyone away from purchasing the game. I'm sure that the game will be successful,...

I haven't played any straight-up dating sims, but the Atlus RPG Thousand Arms had some dating elements to it. There were definitely some sexual overtones in the game, and some fine-looking anime...
