Dragon Ball Xenoverse Review

A promising new beginning.

If there is anything I’ve learned from being a DBZ game fan over the years, it’s that an anime fighter/simulation sequel is nearly always better than the original. They usually clean up the formula the second time, as in the case of 2002’s Dragonball Z Budokai, which was followed up by sequels with enhanced graphics and tightened gameplay. 2005’s Budokai Tenkaichi provided a blueprint for its sequels to later refine the gameplay and expand to one of the biggest and most diverse rosters in the series. If you ask me, it’s a safe bet Dragonball Xenoverse 2 will probably be an amazing game. Of course, that is not too helpful to us at the moment. Right now, we have Dragonball Xenoverse, which leaves me wishing they could’ve done it right the first time.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Hands On Preview

I sorta want Tenkaichi back...

I wanted to be impressed by this game. After more than a few disappointing outings in the genre, I was ready for a Dragon Ball Z fighting game on the level of 2007’s Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Unfortunately, aside from some nice visuals, Battle of Z seems to continue the recent tradition of bad fighting mechanics and gimmicks.

Tales of Xillia Review

A Triumphant Tale, Indeed.

As a huge fan of the Tales series, I was obviously excited for Tales of Xillia, but I also came to the game with some skepticism. I was worried that some of the luster of the franchise was starting to wear off for me, as I didn’t get into last year’s Tales of Graces f as much as I thought I would. However, I was pleased to see that the series still has more than enough kick left in it. Tales of Xillia is one JRPG that shouldn’t be missed, despite some flaws.

Armored Core V Online Bosses to Appear this Weekend

As the Armored Core V community dwindles away, one of the promised online features finally makes its debut.

Disheartened players of Armored Core V had some good news waiting for them when they logged into the game this morning:  the long-awaited arrival of multiplayer bosses. According to the in-game announcement, the bosses will be available from 9:00 AM PDT on Friday, April 26, through 2 AM PDT on Monday, April 30. The multiplayer bosses have been present on Japan’s server for some time now, but have yet to be seen on European or US servers. This missing feature is one of many frustrations for fans of the game, who are still left to wonder when patches to catch up with the Japanese version will be released. PixlBit has contacted Namco Bandai for comment on these issues, but has yet to receive a response, and no official press releases have been issued about the online bosses or patches.

Tales of Graces f Review

Tales of the Typical JRPG.

Japanese RPGs haven't had the easiest time this generation. The good ones are few and far between and Japan has taken notice to the downshift in popularity. Many games, such as Tales of Graces f have a hard time being localized for English speaking audiences. Thankfully, after much fan demand, the game has finally seen a release on U.S. shores and while it doesn't stray far from the formula, it provides an experience that will satisfy many starving JRPG fans.

Tales of Graces f Hands On Preview

Namco Bandai's Latest Takes the Series In A Slightly New Direction.

Many Tales fans feared that we would never see Tales of Graces on U.S. soil. It has been three years since the Japanese Wii release and two years since the release of the enhanced PS3 port, Tales of Graces f. Though it looked unlikely, Namco Bandai announced last year that we in the U.S. would officially be getting Tales of Graces f and that we would be getting the best possible version of the game. Tales of Graces f may not be on the radar of many gamers, but people interested in the JRPG genre should definitely look out for this.
