REVIEWS Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemi Review
Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Press Your Luck

So basically after i saw the midnight launches for Halo 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Madden 09 etc. That many gamers are actually buying games to continue a series of that franchise rather than trying to look a for a new game in hopes of liking it.

It really makes me mad when gamers will criticize a game that they haven't even play, I know for a fact that many people have made rude and cruel statements toward some of my reviews for games such as Kingom Hearts II. I never played the game but, i was always watching my friends and relatives playing it. From what i saw i made a review of what i found to be a terrible game. I then played it a month later realizing my mistake.

So now instead of buying a game people have talked about. I instead rent newer games, download demos to see if i might be willing to be a great consumer of purchasing a game that might as well be a piece of ****.This is what really disappoints me. People will wait to purchase a game continuing a part of a series rather than trying out new games. Yes some may be a piece of crap but you have to take a chance and press your luck of buying a game. If not then what kind of gamer will you be?
