Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines – Review

I don't think 3D RPG's work. The number-based systems of old pen & paper games have not transitioned well into the realm of three dimensions. Back in the days of 2D these number systems still made sense, but now they just get in the way.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door – Second Opinion

Tera has done a great job with her evaluation of Paper Mario, and I find myself in agreement with nearly everything she said. Paper Mario really is a great game, and the only area that I think I would like to reiterate is that I felt Intelligent Systems overdid it a bit on the backtracking.

The title's narrative is certainly where it shines.

Suikoden IV – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Violence

Suikoden IV – Review

The game's most obvious failing is in its very design. While previous Suikoden games have been relatively short by RPG standards, they've always managed to tell epic tales. In a lot of ways, this was a plus—the older games always told grand stories without the narrative fat that's become so common in the genre. Suikoden IV attempts to continue this tradition; it doesn't have any narrative fat, but that's generally because it doesn't have much of a narrative at all. Earlier titles in the series gradually ramped up in terms of action, but Suikoden IV is content to spend the entirety of the game languishing in second gear. It presents moments where it seems like things are going to rev up and finally go somewhere, but they never do. Because of this, the game never really achieves a sense of urgency.

La Pucelle Tactics – Review

Enjoying this game requires a compulsive temperament and a perverse sense of humor.
