If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...
The DS is quickly flying off shelves, but new games aren't coming as rapidly as the quirky system is going. Still, the year produced a few fine two-headed offspring, so without further ado we present:.
Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime
Publisher: Square Enix
Rocket Slime is about a slime named Rocket (go figure) who must engage in tank warfare to rescue the kidnapped members of the slime kingdom. It's weirder than it sounds, and offers the best versus play on the DS since Advance Wars. Get slimed.
