Square Enix has recently re-released their PS2 classic Final Fantasy X and its sequel and added HD visuals on the PS3. And if you’re new to the series or are a bit rusty since your last play and need a little help, BradyGames has you covered with the official strategy guide for this collection!
Well folks, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that MonkeyPaw Games has released Tomba 2 for download on PSN! It’s the sequel to one of the best PlayStation 2-D platformers ever made! So what could POSSIBLY be the bad news? Well, it’s the Japanese version they’re releasing in the US. The Japanese version of a game that has extensive text that requires reading. And there is a perfectly good English version they could’ve used instead. Not cool, MonkeyPaw Games. Not cool.
In this new iOS game (reviewed on iPad here), help a hungry little critter get his snack on! In the game, you don’t control the hungry little guy directly, but you must place objects to keep him out of danger as he walks about the levels eating all the vittles he comes across. In a way, it kind of reminds me of Lemmings.
One of the most beloved entries in Namco’s Tales RPG series is the classic Tales of Symphonia on GameCube. Now you can enjoy it and the Wii sequel on your PS3 with Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, featuring new content and HD graphics. Two RPGs on one disc is a very good value indeed.
Grandpa has woken up in a hospital with a broken leg and in a wheelchair and has no idea how he got there. What’s worse, zombies have taken over the hospital and it’s up to you to roll Grandpa to safety in this puzzle game for iOS devices, Android, and Google Play (reviewed on iPad here).
In role playing video games, you generally play as some valiant hero, usually a regal knight, noble thief, powerful wizard, and many times all three! But have you ever thought about some of the other characters who help you on your quest? Like the owner of the shop that sells you weapons for instance. Without them, you probably wouldn’t get very far. Well now you can play as a weapon shop owner and blacksmith with Weapon Shop de Omasse, a very creative and unusual downloadable title for the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
This month is the three-year anniversary of the release of the Nintendo 3DS. And it’s the second anniversary of the North Dallas/Plano, TX 3DS StreetPass Meetup. So in honor of that, we’re having another meeting next Saturday, March 22. Same time, same place. For more information, click here.
It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! And you know what that means? We all have to wear green! Green is my favorite color, and I have some Irish in my family so St. Patrick’s Day is a pretty fun holiday for me. So in honor of that, here is a blog about my favorite green video game characters! They’re always ready for St. Patrick’s Day! These are in no particular order, by the way.
Inazuma Eleven is a super popular video game in Japan and Europe. It’s spawned a few sequels, an anime cartoon, and even a card game! And now the original title is finally coming to the US with 3DS enhancements and only downloadable on the Nintendo eShop. But what KIND of game is Inazuma Eleven? Get ready for it…it’s a soccer-themed RPG! Yup, you heard right.
Spring is almost here, and that means time to start soccer practice! So in honor of that, this week we’re going to look at a couple of unusual soccer-themed video games. First up is Super League Football Pinball for various Pinball FX2 and Zen Pinball formats (reviewed on 360 here). When you download Pinball FX 2 or Zen Pinball 2, you’re really downloading a free hub from which you can purchase and download various pinball tables separately. Super League Football is the newest table, and you can choose which team table you want and purchase the others later if you wish. I’m not familiar with European Football teams, so I can’t tell you much about them, but the tables are pretty much the same except each features that team’s colors and players. I went with the Zen Studios table since I had no affinity. Go team!
