Role-Playing

Everblue 2 – Review

A few minor exceptions aside, most role-playing games have been wedded to the fantasy genre. This is no doubt due in a large part to the format's origins in the pen and paper world of Dungeons & Dragons. Whether you're smashing orcs over the head in Neverwinter Nights or defeating some ugly monstrosity with a fire spell in any of the Final Fantasy games, the setting is the same (albeit with small alterations). Rest assured that if you're playing a role-playing game (RPG), you'll be lost in a world full of mages, fantastic beasts and people who have names like Wakka.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Review

There have been plenty of times when I've wished my life was structured similarly to the existential glee found in certain videogames, games like Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic. Like a scene straight out of Mike Judge's first film Office Space, my editors often hunt me down to say, "I'm gonna have to ask you to come in on Saturday."

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Game Description: Long before the Galactic Civil War, an epic drama begins. Engage in this saga set in the Golden Age of the Republic—over 4,000 years before the first Star Wars film, when both Jedi and Sith number in the thousands. With the Galaxy reeling from a recent conflict with the Dark Lords, the ongoing battle between the Jedi and the Sith rages on. Your actions determine the outcome of this colossal galactic war—and your destiny as a Jedi.

Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color – Review

With the advent of new console technology, the potential exists for previously unseen ideas and experiences to be realized. So far, we've mostly been treated to the same concepts with better graphics and online connectivity, but those are just the obligatory first steps. With so much horsepower under the hood, it would be extremely shortsighted to avoid pushing videogames' very structure further. Looking at prime areas ripe for growth, something that seems quite logical (yet rarely implemented) is depth of customization.

dot hack//INFECTION Part 1 – Review

The character interactions and plot advancements, and the intrigues that keep piling up in The World make INFECTION a solid start to what is shaping up to be an extremely worth-while experience for those willing to stick with the series to the end.
