Xenogears (PS3) Review


When I first heard of this game, I was in college and some buddies were finishing it up. At the time, it looked cool, but I made note of it for later, as I had much more on my PC I wanted to get to. But I never forgot the game, so when I found out the prequel games were coming out for PS2, I decided to start there, but that proved an utter mistake as I found the game used the strategy guide as an extra-expensive manual. Still, that did not mean I didn't want to play this one, so when I could get it on PSN, I jumped. Now, as I’ve finally played through the whole 90 hour adventure, I have to say… I’m glad I did, but I’m not to sure everyone should.

Afterfall Insanity (PC) Review


This one has been waiting a long time. When I first saw the trailers, I was enthralled. After all, I have always enjoyed creepy games and at the time, they were fairly few and far between. Still it wasn’t exactly rave review material when it came out and it was at a time when I still felt I could trust the reviewers, so I held back till it was on sale and when I did get my hands on it, I put it into my steam collection where it would reside till I felt ready to play.

Now when I pick my next game I generally do so by process of elimination via dice till I have reduced my choices to 10, but two weeks ago, those dice were not so kind to me. Still, this little title was among those games and promised to be something interesting… well, it at least lived up to that for a while, but this is not a game anyone really needs to play.
