[PS3 JRPG Review] The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (EU Version)

January 15, 2016 |

coldsteel_revheader

This is a review for the European version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. The content of both European and American version of this game are exactly the same, and for a second opinion you can check our double-review feature for the North American version that is available right here.

Trails of Cold Steel is the latest in the Legend of Heroes subseries of games called Trails franchise, a series created by Nihon Falcom that dates all the way back to as early as 1989 when the original Legend of Heroes game came out in Japan. Since then there has been a steady stream of games from the series, particularly in the last decade. Trails of Cold Steel (ToCS) is the latest one to make the jump to the west. Originally released in September of 2013 in Japan, the translated version that released in late December in North America finally comes to Europe by way of NIS America!

In all honesty, before doing this review, my knowledge of the Trails series was limited only to Trails in the Sky, which was released on PC back in 2014 (originally released in Japan in 2004). Though I only came across it in passing, it did, however, have a name that stuck with me only because it becomes a very interesting game ever when you use its Acronym as you giggle like a school boy. But enough of that, it is time to play Trails of Cold Steel!

[Review Rewind] The Last Guy

November 28, 2014 | | 2 Comments

I recently dug up The Last Guy on PS3. No, that was not a typo, I did not mean to type The Last of Us. I am, in fact, referring to the possibly forgotten nugget of weirdness that graced the PSN back in August of 2008.

A downloadable game from Hindustan Electronic Company LTD, a three-man team from the Himalayas – if the promo material for these guys is to be believed (it’s not)… the game is actually from Sony’s Japan Studios.

I recently dug up: Sports Champions. Over here in the UK where I am, the Commonwealth games have recently come to an end. For those of you not aware of what they are, think of them as a smaller version of the Olympics but for countries that at one time or another were under British rule.

[PS Vita Review] OMG HD Zombies

November 2, 2013 | | 5 Comments

OMG HD Zombies is a part of the drive to “re-VITA-lise” (see what they did there?) old PSP minis releases for the new(ish) Vita generation. Previous games in this drive have included Coconut dodge, Floating Cloud God and Rotating Octopus. The latest game to join this elite group of HD remakes is OMG-Z (originally released in 2011), and OMG HD Zombies tries to improve on an already unique experience by adding a plethora of content but… can it succeed?

Embark on a grand adventure in the lands of Halodra Ille! The fate of this world hangs in the balance as the barrier protecting it is severely weakened. The gods granted power to six rings to form the world’s barrier and located them in a tower known as Dragon’s Fang. Dark priestesses planned on destroying the barrier for so they could summon their Demon King. When they tried to destroy one of the rings, the barrier weakened greatly, but the remaining five rings scattered themselves across the ends of the realm to prevent further damage to the shield. With the shield weakened, monsters of increasing power and ferocity began appearing throughout the lands. You must join the search among other adventurers of Halodra Illa and find the five rings and restore balance to the world!
