Game Review – Fire Emblem Fates (Conquest)

fire-emblem-fates-conquest-3ds-review-2

 

People, out of all the popular games out there, Fire Emblem is the series I know the least. Never had the time or desire. However I know which way the winds are blowing so it was going to be now or never. So for my first FE experience I chose the harder of the two current titles because I maybe new FE but not to gaming in geneal. Also Birthright seems pretty straightforward and where is the challenge in that. Hoo-Boi there’s challenge in Conquest! Always out numbered, most times out gunned, and at the disadventage because your side is bad (mostly) and people trust you (again mostly). However I don’t regeat my choice because the story feels much stronger from this point-of-view and sometimes to take down an evil king, that is your adopt-a-daddy, you got to do it behind enemy lines. Worry not though, both titles give you the oppostion to change the diffaculty and elmiate perma death from character defeats. Also you can pimp out your street pass castle to improve your army’s stats, weapons, armors, and even relatonships. You get bored? No problem just go a-raiding to other street pass castles for resources, gold and glory – but becareful some of those castles are very well defended. I’m not even done and I’m already hooked into the Fire Emblem life sytle. From the story, to the combat, and all the little things in between Fates is a real gem. Best of all – no matter which side you choose, there will be a 3rd part of the story as DLC that will explore Fates entire and unite all against the true enemy. I can’t wait, foruanetly I’ve got plenty to do in conquest while I do.

Game Review: Project X Zone 2

project-x-zone-2-boxart-1

 

They’re back! And just in time for the new year, from the good people of video games (some of them anyway): Project X Zone 2. So the story is giant gold chains some how break reality and iconic video game characters join forces to find out why and stop it. Yes I know there’s more to the story, but you don’t play PXZ 2 for the story, you play to see Jin & Kazuya from the Tekken series team up with with Phoenix Wright and Mia from Ace Attorney do an awesome 81 hit combo with with Chrom & Lucina from FE Awakening. Other than adding new characters, a shop to buy items, and including some customization options; Project X Zone 2 is just like Project X Zone. Although the original game did have better music than the sequel and I kind of miss the avatar characters, Kogoro & Mii, from the first game; Project X Zone 2 is a safe, but faithful follow up to the series. If your a fan of strategy titles with some fighting game elements in it, or a fan of the first game, then this will be a no brainier. Everyone else: try before buy.

Mini Game Review: Fallout 4

fallout_4.001

 

 

Alright people I’m going to keep this short because, surprise, Fallout 4 is great and I want to keep playing. The start of the game begins 200 years ago were you (average Joe or Jane) are enjoying a life of peace with family, unfortunately that peace is shattered when the nuclear bombs fell and the great war began. Only by sheer ‘luck’ did you and your family make it into Vault 111 before one of those bombs hit your neighborhood; however whatever luck you had in getting there ran out soon after. Now, through the story, you are the sole survivor of Vault 111 and the world has changed far more than you could possibly imagine – this is Fallout 4. From there the Commonwealth is your oyster: you can continue the main story, or you can explore the devastated wasteland to see what trouble you can get into yourself, how about rebuilding? In a first for the series you can found and grow your own settlements. Make sure plant crops and provide fresh water and the people will come. Of course to deter raiders, super mutants, and the like; set up defenses and turrets – you haven’t lived until you see a rocket launching turret at work. Or not – you can just go around selling your skills to different factions and people for rewards, allies, and more.

I’ll say it again: Fallout 4 is great, game of the year no question. It has flaws (random glitches, character clipping, dialog hic-ups) and I wouldn’t say Fallout 4’s story is the most groundbreaking either, but all Fallouts since 3 were amusingly glitchy and don’t do anything to cause the player any grief. Any other problems found in this game are nitpicks, plain and simple. Buy this game now and become the sole survivor you want to be.
