Pokémon X and Y | Review

Posted on November 9, 2013 by Jason Nason

It’s been a while since I’ve played a Pokémon game and I haven’t really played one since the original Pokémon Red way back in the day. Back when I picked up that game the craze in North America hadn’t yet begun. The television show wasn’t airing on television and kids weren’t gaga over trading cards. Heck, no one knew what the game was. Not even the guys at the video game store where I got my copy.

The main reason why I grabbed the game was based on the description from a friend, another founding member of Darkain Arts Gamers. The idea that I could play an RPG and not only fight monsters, but also capture them and have them fight for me was something new to me and very appealing. It was only later that I learned about what the game was all about.

For the most part Pokémon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS haven’t changed that much from the original Game Boy Pokémon Red and Blue games that I remember. The visuals of course are much better but everything that I loved in the first game is just the same.

Perhaps the reason that I haven’t played the other games is that I figured that the games would be too similar, but I kind of like the fact that this game is so similar. The sound effects and music is all very familiar.

The Guided Fate Paradox | Review

Posted on November 9, 2013 by Les Major

Taking a look at Celestia as the main focus instead of the Netherworld makes The Guided Fate Paradox a fresh and interesting title by the development team behind Disgaea. Much like the games setting, the system involved is unique as well. Technically you can think of this as angels and demons being trained differently, though you’re really training a new “god” in Guided Fate.

Basically it seems like Celestia is looking for a new “god” to take over, and unlucky teenager Renya Kagurazaka has won a magical lottery that has chosen him as the new candidate to become “god” of Celestia, or at least your section of it. With the assistance of a new angel recruit being his guide, Renya learns how to use the Fate Revolution Circuit to answer prayers.Read More
