Better Late Than Never: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2

devilsurvivor2

So, I’ve been in this mood lately where I’ve been more likely to want to actually /play/ games than to /write/ about games. Which is why I haven’t really written a whole lot lately. The upside to that is that I’ve actually been able to finish a game or two in the past couple weeks. In keeping with the theme of me being a pretty busy person, I probably won’t be reviewing all that many games that have just come out (though really, have there /been/ that many games released in the past couple weeks?). Therefore, most of my actual reviews on games I’ve played to completion will get the title of ‘Better Late Than Never’, because I’ll be reviewing them anywhere from weeks to years after they first hit the market.


Thankfully, in the case of Devil Survivor 2, it’s only been two or three months, and it’s taken that long because there’s a lot of content. And I’m a perfectionist.

Opening Turn: Digital: A Love Story

So, without further introduction…

Opening Turn: Diablo III

Yes, yes, I know, it’s a big name title. But I do feel that even though everyone else, their dog, and their dog’s dog is reviewing the AAA titles, well, let me just say this. Even if there is an elephant in the room, eventually everyone is going to take a look at it and tell you whether or not it’s a damn fine elephant.

So here we go.

Opening Turn: Xenoblade Chronicles

So, I had the idea for this feature because I realized that what I’ve been doing more and more lately is sampling games and putting the ones that don’t catch my attention after an evening or two of good solid playtime back into the pile. As such, I figured that since I’m pretty much doing it anyway, I could impart this information to other people who are similarly busy. These will be brief one-shot articles that I really won’t even consider reviews. They’re really more like.. information about what grabs my attention, be it a merit or a flaw of a game, with additional information such as the game’s learning curve or whatnot that will help others to know what exactly they are getting into when deciding whether to pick up a particular game. So, again, in the interest of keeping it brief, without further ado…
