Agarest: Generations of War 2 (Record of Agarest War 2 in the US) is a Tactical-RPG developed by Idea Factory, Red Entertainment and Compile Heart, and the third game in the Agarest series.
Agarest games are known for being very long RPGs (60h+) in which you fight for a cause involving the entire world while gaining affinity with your party members. Like in the previous iterations, the campaign is split into 3 Generations. When one Generation ends, a child will be born from your union with a girl in your party and this child will be the leader of the next story segment.
Here we are again with another week in gaming. The VGA’s took place this past Friday, did you happen to catch them? I thought it went better than last year, though there were way too many commercial breaks and I’m always annoyed when awards get bundled in together. Did you catch that new The Last of Us trailer? I’m loving the way that game is shaping up and I can’t wait to play it.
Tune in this week for the triumphant return of Isli, MissXya and myself. We talk about some of the news this week as well as recap some of the VGA’s. What did you like the most from the things you saw? Leave a comment below!

The Nuketown Zombies Bonus Map is Now Available on the Xbox 360 which means it will be available on the PS3 soon. This is by far my favorit Call of Duty and I’m actually excited to try out this map.
Short and sweet update. Sony has just announced two new games that will be added to the instant game collection: Rochard (which we reviewed) and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition!
I’m sure we’ll get another soon with a list of extra sales and discounts for PS+ subscribers to close the year, so be sure to visit us!
Sony updated their SEN (Sony Entertainment Network) service today with a welcome feature that many have asked for. EU accounts can now access their PSN store from a web based interface. The SEN Store sports the same design aesthetic we now see on our PS3. It’s actually a lot more tolerable in the browser where you aren’t limited to just two rows of items. You are able to search easily and sort items by category, and date but, mysteriously, not by game title. Oh well, it’s not like anyone would want to look for DLC by game title on a video game online store. I’m sure they’ll get around to it if it ever becomes a bother. /sarcasm.
Unlike the similar Xbox 360 web store, you are unable to begin downloads on your console, but you can complete purchases via browser and find them at the top of your downloads list for easy (sort of) access. No more waiting to get home in order to redeem those PSN codes you win from PS3Blog.Net.
The update is limited to the EU region for now but like the store revamp there’s no reason as to why this feature shouldn’t trickle down to the lowly NA region after it’s been ironed out on the backend.
