REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Tell GR: Buy, Try, Or Die? [November 2012]

Posted on Tuesday, October 30 @ 19:16:27 Eastern by


November marks the final month for most developers to release their titles in the holiday season, with eyes all on Nintendo, Microsoft, and Activision. 343 Industries has a one-week advance with the much antipicated return of the Halo franchise in Halo 4 before Activision attempts to share the spoils with Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

And lest we forget, Nintendo's Wii U console will take all of the media outlets by storm when it releases November 18th. The launch lineup is plentiful and covers a wide range of genres and audiences, with Nintendo hoping to curtail some of its image as a kid-only console. There are so many launch titles, in fact, that I've had to split the two lists for brevity's sake.

If you're getting the Wii U, which launch titles will you Buy with your console? If not, are there any titles you wish to purchase, or Try perhaps? And which titles need to Die?
