Endless Ocean Review, A Peaceful Swim with the Ocean Life of Manauria

One of the rare games that Europe gets first before NA. Otherwise known as "Forever Blue" in Japan, Endless Ocean allows you to explore the fictional ocean depths of Manaurai while learning about real sea creatures. I'm sure the beautiful blue boxart alone already catches attention. Starting the game, you're given a divers...


Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, I Really am Bored of Shooters

I know I said I probably wouldn't going get Metroid Prime 3: Corruption but, since Elebits didn't last very long, I decided to get it anyway while I waited for another good title on the Wii. For some reason, even though I had the latest 3.10E update, the game icon wouldn't load and I still had to perform an update off the DVD before the game...


Archaic Sealed Heat Review, 38 Hours of Hironobu Sakaguchi's Latest SRPG

When I first loaded up Hironobu Sakaguchi's latest game "Archaic Sealed Heat", I have to admit I was put off by the somewhat "bad" balance between the 2D sprites and 3D graphics. They just don't look quite as impressive as S-E's recent offerings on the DS. However, after giving it a few hours of play, I found there was much more to this...


Eledees, Impressions and a Bit of Motion Sickness

Decided to pick up Elebits to play until something else interesting comes out. I don't see why they changed the name to Eledees for Europe when the original name sounds better. Well, at least we got the Japanese box art which I prefer over the pastel style NA picture that you can see on the manual here. As usual, I done my research for this...


19 Hours of Super Paper Mario, From Good Fun to Boring

Finished Paper Mario for the Wii in 19 hours and the fun didn't last very long. I kind of had to drag myself through the game after getting half way through. Besides the dull story and the (mostly) boring script that I mentioned last time, here's the other things I didn't like. Carrying a few Ice Storms around pretty much let you finish the...


Thoughts on Persona 3 and Half an Hour of P3 FES, The Expansion

I've finished Persona 3 at 70 hours and am now playing my way through Paper Mario on the Wii so, watch out for spoilers in this post. While I was Googling for the correct pronunciation of the P3 animated scenes' director's name yesterday, I just happened to come across this Youtube video which covers the first half hour of the expansion...


FFVII Crisis Core, Impressions and Hints at an FFVII Remake?

Well, 14 hours was how long it took to finish FFVII: Crisis Core's main story. I didn't expect it to be this short when it was leaked on 2ch but looks like it's true. But if you did all the short side missions, you could land up to 50 hours! The RPG's been fun in terms of gameplay with a bit of freedom to roam, easy instant access to shops, no...


Super Paper Mario Arrives a Little Late, Does My PAL Copy Have the Glitch?

I decided to put in a pre-order for Super Paper Mario anyway despite using the reserved cash for my printer last time (tight student budget). Again, I opted to pay the extra 99p for 1st class delivery but unlike the time with Trauma Centre SO, I wasn't so lucky this time. Instead of arriving on its release day yesterday, it arrived this...


Gyakuten Saiban 3 DS Arrived Today with Capcom's Little Gift

The official release date for Ace Attorney 3: Trials and Tribulations was yesterday in Japan but, the game was already dumped a good few days before then as usual with big titles. Didn't have time to try it out though but anyway, my own legitimate copy of the game arrived this morning along with Capcom's first press edition gift. It was...


Trauma Center Second Opinion Finished in a Few Hours, Follow-up Thoughts

Good to see Trauma Center Second Opinion sitting in the top 10 Wii titles on Amazon! But considering how there are currently few good Wii games out here in PAL land, it might not be that surprising. The latest titles for Nintendo's classic series such as Paper Mario and Metroid Prime 3 are yet to come out. Here's my follow-up post that I...
