Legacy of Ys: Books I & II Review

A legacy worth exploring

HIGH Getting to finally see how Adol Christin became a cult icon in the world of gaming.

LOW Wandering the temple at the end of Ys II for hours on end because it's so easy to get lost.

WTF Half of the items you find in the game are useless unless you're bored and want to screw around. I never once found a reason to use "magic of stop-time".

Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! Review

Kawaii! (means super-cute in Japanese!)

HIGH Hearing my Japanese host mother comment "kawaii!!" after I showed her a level of the game.

LOW Almost doubling the amount of scratches on my touch-screen due to excessive and forceful spinning.

WTF The instance where the Ouendan somehow manage to travel back in time... When Japanese male cheerleaders start inexplicably using time travel to help a distressed Cleopatra, I laugh.

My World, My Way Review

A good pout will get you anywhere

HIGH Clever writing and meta commentary on RPGs.

LOW Shallow, repetitive game design that grows stale almost immediately.

WTF Most of the game has been cannibalized from Master of the Monster Lair.

Tokyo Beat Down Preview

Another peek into the inner workings of fan-pleasin' publisher, they were kind enough to send along some photos and information on their upcoming title Tokyo Beat Down for the Nintendo DS. Unless you're the type of player that regularly picks up golden oldies, I'm guessing that it's been a while since a side-scrolling beat'em-up has come your way.
