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

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...

What do these ratings mean?

    Well.... another year....another kick-ass guitar hero game. Although many things may have changed this time around... Guitar hero 3 still manages to rock with the best of them.

    Let's talk about the gameplay first..  It basically plays just like Guitar heroes 1 and 2. Which will have you breaking balls to hit 5 colored buttons on the plastic guitar controller... Oh yea I forgot to mention...IT'S EXTREMELY DIFFICULT!!! When I bought this game...I thought I was the best of the best...I could 5 star Jordan....I had the log.....I could play Hangar 18 backwards......but when I got to the last tier of this game and played Raining Blood.....I almost cried.....It's just insane and only guitar hero 2 mastars will be able to pass every song on expert.....I however welcome the challenge....I had been expecting to breeze through it easily.....but than it would have been boring......

    Anyway....let's talk about the presentation...which is where Guitar Hero 3 is lackluster....As opposed to Guitar Heroes 1 and 2, which were dripping with so much rock greatness it was unreal.....Guitar Hero 3 just isn't as magical.....I mean sure it has short little movies between setlists....too bad they blow... Anyway the character models look like a 8 year old designed them....except for the guitarists you use......but even then the movements of the whole band just gargle anus water... The guitarist never looks like he's rocking out to the song.....I've seen him going ape-**** on a song....jumping up and down and going crazy....too bad I wasn't playing anything at that part.... The drummer lifts the stick up when the drum plays instead of bringing it down on the drum...I guess that's too realistic for neversoft....And I swear to god the singers chin is going to fall off on a song sooner or later....

    Overall...though....with the lackluster presentation....it holds Guitar Hero 3 back from being the greatest guitar hero of them all (GH2) but with an awesome setlist...including Dragonforce, which will cramp your hands into submission....it makes for a fineadaptaion to the awesome series of Guitar Hero.
