Lost in the Mist

HIGH That moment when a puzzle that seemed to have no answer suddenly crystallized in my mind.

LOW Every single moment of the subplot with Chief Jakes is terrible.

HIGH Finding a rare piece of equipment in one of the game's numerous optional dungeons.

LOW Grinding for hours on end so you can afford to buy new gear.

Not so Massively Multiplayer

HIGH Babysitting macho physical fighters with my tiny, old, somewhat sinister looking mage.

LOW Some of the most obtuse menus I've ever seen. Whoever was in charge must be a maze fetishist.

WTF Web 2.0? In my JRPG?

Jeanne D'Arc

The game brings numerous animated in-game cutscenes that bring the world to life.

Five brave heroes create armlets to restrain the demon gods.

Jeanne D'Arc – Review

Read review of Jeanne D'Arc "About ancient history... it's called Jeanne D'Arc, and it's all about this big war that happened, but it's weird because the two sides are the French and the English and at first I couldn't figure out was going on because there weren't any Nazis or zombies or anything."

"Jeanne D'Arc... is that the same as Joan of Arc? That one chick that dressed up like a guy to play football or something?"

Jeanne D'Arc – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol References, Fantasy Violence, and Mild Language

Rogue Galaxy – Review

Read review of Rogue GalaxyLike Final Fantasy VII, Rogue Galaxy also has a malicious world-shattering entity, but the similarities end with a supposedly feminine archetype. Whereas JENOVA seemed rather vague except through her influence of arch-villain Sephiroth, the entity in this game is a hungry and malicious being who thrives on the idea of absorbing other life. (To go into more detail is to spoil the story.)
