Lords of the Fallen Review

Soulslike

HIGH Enchanting the Gauntlet with fire makes for a neat projectile weapon.

LOW The third boss is ten times harder than the two bosses that precede him.

WTF I stabbed you in the back. How is your shield in front blocking that?

Spiritual Salvation

Dark Souls 2 Review Screenshot

HIGH Conquering the Gargoyles on my own after countless defeats.

LOW Accidentally killing an NPC after 50 hours of trying to not kill NPCs.

Victory through death

Dark Souls II Review Screenshot

HIGH The tiny details, like how my character slouches when tired and out of breath after a harrowing fight

LOW Trying for the umpteenth time to lead an NPC to a boss fight, only to watch her charge off and kill a monster halfway across the zone.

WTF 50 hours played online, and not a single invader trying to kill me?

HIGH All 4 Freizas vs All 4 Cells. Finally.

LOW Getting punched out of my Spirit Bomb for the eighth time in a row.

Unexpectedly Nutritious

HIGH Milla slamming the gem into the aspyrixis.

LOW Falling out of the arena while punching the last enemy in a coliseum sequence.

WTF An RPG where people actually express concern about the idea of a 12-year-old girl fighting monsters? I thought I'd never see the day.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review

Off Target

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Screenshot

HIGH Nailing a long range shot without gameplay assists.

LOW Feeling like little more than a dancing puppet throughout the game.

WTF Spotters are undoubtedly the real heroes, not snipers.

...and the Bland Played On

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Screenshot

HIGH The visit to the Fairyground.

LOW Losing the third phase of the final boss battle because of stun-locking.

WTF So I'm in a nursery inside a fairy's reproductive system?

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection Review

Still Shamelessly Crushing on Future Trunks

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection Screenshot

HIGH Seeing all of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai's story mode in bright, shiny HD; Reversible cover art!

LOW Seeing Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3's boring story mode in flat, static HD; Cheap AI.

WTF The AI abuses the crap out of the fact that combat starts when "FIGHT" appears, not when it fades like most other fighters—cheap first hits for everyone!

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Review

An Iron Fist... in a Newbie's Face

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Screenshot

HIGH Finally starting to master characters and kick some ass.

LOW Losing to the final boss over and over and over again.

WTF Who approved the Easy difficulty level?

Inversion Review

Your Daughter is in Another Castle

Inversion Screenshot

HIGH Flinging an enemy high into the air and watching the varying gravity directions pull him back and forth.

LOW Pretty much every single line of dialogue. Or the boss fights. I can't pick between the two.

WTF Look man, I know you love your daughter, but do you really not lose sight of that while the world is getting taken over by aliens?
