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...

Anybody familiar with or have read these? Just found out the games were based off the books or at least themes and characters from the universe. I thoroughly enjoy The Witcher 2 and will likely buy 1 at some point down the road. Are the books and games good tie-ins to eachother?

The book series is its own thing, but a lot of the stuff that happens in the games is related straight from the books. For example, the idea of the village wanting to keep a troll around to maintain the bridge was mentioned in The Last Wish.

Only two of them have been translated yet, but they're definitely worth reading.
