Game Description: Mag Launcher and his crew are back for more role-playing adventures on the Dreamcast with Evolution 2. Delving deeper into the story and characters than did its predecessor, Evolution 2 starts by showing how Mag's dungeon-exploring exploits have gained him a little notoriety, leading Dr. Whitehead to invite him on a new expedition. This sequel adds a new character to the cast, Yurka, but there's reason to suspect his motivations. You'll fight battles both day and night, collect treasure, and solve puzzles that bring you further into the game's story. Evolution 2 features 3D characters, a third-person perspective, Visual Memory Unit support, and a turn-based battle engine that's easy to learn.

From Bens review of Evolution 2, I can tell he didnt play the first part. I know because the sentiments he expressed about the sequel are very similar to my critique of the original. Those exposed to the series for the first time—whether it be part one or two—are bound to have a positive reaction.

Game Description: You’d better not be afraid of heights if you plan on playing Skies of Arcadia. In this epic RPG, you play an air pirate who must defend the lands of Arcadia, a floating world that is under attack by an evil group of warlords. Along with your crew, the Blue Rogues, you must sail between the lands of Arcadia and fight the good fight. As your character develops new fighting skills, learns new magic, and acquires more powerful weapons, you’ll be a force to be reckoned with as you explore and defend the lands of Arcadia.

When discussing the advancement and progression of video games, it's not very often that an original idea comes along and jumpstarts the industry while being well-rounded enough to be praised on multiple levels. When a game is going to focus on improving or innovating the mechanics of how it's played, it often leaves behind the polish and fully-fleshed feel most gamers crave.

I knew that I'd like Skies Of Arcadia right from the start. It showed signs early on that it would be a wonderfully light-hearted adventure story. In a genre loaded with dark, melodramatic RPGs, having a game with such a fun spirit is refreshing. I must admit that the flying ship premise took a while to really grab me. I kept looking at these flying ships and wondering how a civilization could even exist hovering in the air—for crying out loud, fish fly through the air!—but as the game went on I suppressed my doubt and enjoyed the game for what it is.

In light of the recent rumors flying around concerning the premature death of the Sega Dreamcast and the possibility that Microsoft's Xbox might include Dreamcast's chip set (and thus enabling it to play all Dreamcast games), I thought it might be interesting to go back and retrace the steps (missteps actually) that brought Sega to where it is today.
Game Description: Typing of the Dead blends horror with a typing tutorial for an original gaming experience. There are several game modes to help you become a terrific typist. Drill mode focuses on different skills, such as typing speed, accuracy, reflex, and special keystrokes. In the boss mode, your battle against each boss emphasizes a different skill, from quick reading and answering to story reading and typing. Two-player modes include cooperative and competitive.

I'm all for quirky games with unique ideas, but one thing that Brad and other game reviews for Typing Of The Dead don't emphasize enough is that aside from the typing action, Typing Of The Dead is virtually identical to House Of The Dead 2! I went into this game expecting an entirely new game based on the House Of The Dead universe.
