[PS3 JRPG Review] Child Of Light

May 6, 2014 | | 5 Comments

Set in the magical world of Lemuria, Child of Light takes us on the coming-of-age journey of Aurora, a young girl struggling to save a lost kingdom and her ailing father. The daughter of the Duke of Carniola is transported to Lemuria, a mysterious world that needs her help. Identified as the Child of Light and granted the power of flight, she takes on the minions of Lemuria’s Dark Queen in her quest to recover the sun, the moon and the stars to return home. Along the way she’ll discover that her destiny may be far greater than she ever dreamed.

Child of Light takes place in Austria, in the year 1895, and you are following a little princess named Aurora. The story begins with Aurora falling asleep and waking up in the fantasy world of Lemuria. This world is actually in crisis, because the Black Queen has stolen its sun, moon and stars! At first, Aurora is scared of the world and wondering how she’ll get back to her world. Hopefully, Igniculus — a flying spirit — meets her and suggest to help her achieve what she was meant to do in Lemuria.

[Review Rewind]: Prince of Persia (2008)

June 11, 2012 | | 11 Comments

Coming into this Prince of Persia game, I had only played the Prince of Persia for the PC back in the 90’s, so I had zero expectations regarding gameplay and story. In this iteration, the story was engrossing and compelling. I found myself wanting to play the game to see what would happen toward the end. The other key character ends up being a ‘partner’ that is more of a ‘helper’ than anything. The humor between the two characters is witty and humorous. The voice acting was well done for the main characters; the main character’s voice is Nolan North (Nathan Drake), and he made the dialogue fun to listen to.

I believe the story mode for this Prince of Persia may be a bit more sci-fi than what some are used to, but I enjoyed it. For those collecting trophies, I’d suggest not updating the game with the latest patch, and then updating it prior to beating the game to help with some of the trophies to limit the number of times you need to playthrough the game.

E3 2012: Assassin’s Creed III Bundles Coming Later This Year

June 5, 2012 | | 3 Comments

First, I will start off with saying that the PlayStation Vita will be getting a spin-off of Assassin’s Creed III, subtitled Liberation, which stars, for the first time in the series, a female lead role. Her name is Aveline, a woman with a French and African heritage. Since the game takes place in Louisiana, around 1765, the area will about to be handed over from the French to the Spanish, but an ultimately unsuccessful rebellion will try to stop it. Aveline, it seems, is part of this rebellion. Some standout weapons in Aveline’s arsenal include dueling pistols, a poison dart blow pipe, and a machete.

As for Assassin’s Creed III (PS3), we’ll be seeing four exclusive missions for that as well. On a related note, check after the jump for a gameplay trailer featuring Connor as a ship captain in the Caribbean (showing that there is some naval warfare; there is also a premiere trailer for Liberation). One last tidbit, according to Jack Tretton, if you link both PS3 and Vita games, you’ll unlock Connor’s tomahawk, a new character skin, a new multiplayer character (how much do you want to bet it will be Aveline?), and fully upgraded ammo pouches.

Now, with that out of the way, Ubisoft and Sony have once again teamed up for some bundles. There will be a PlayStation 3 bundled with Assassin’s Creed III, of course, but Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will also be bundled with a crystal white wifi PlayStation Vita (and a 4GB memory card). They will launch alongside the games on October 30th.

E3 2012: Ubisoft Unveils New IP: Watch Dogs

June 4, 2012 | | 5 Comments

One of the few things that has stuck out so far this E3 was a new title in development under Ubisoft. The game is called “Watch Dogs,” and it honestly looks pretty interesting. I still don’t understand what the plot it, besides that everything is run by a Central Operating System (traffic lights, cell phones, etc.) and you seem to be able to control members of a group that can hack into the system and control aspects of it. Check out the gameplay trailer after the jump for some fresh gameplay footage!


Right after I posted this, Ubisoft released a press release that gives some more details. Here’s an excerpt from said release:

“In Watch Dogs, players enter the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a new class of antihero whose ability to hack into any connected system could be his most powerful weapon. Whether it’s triggering a 30-car pileup by manipulating traffic-lights to trap an enemy during a downtown shootout or tapping into the city’s omnipresent security cameras to access anyone’s personal information, Pearce is capable of coercing and controlling almost every element of the world around him.”

Watch Dogs goes beyond the limits of today’s open-world games by giving players the ability to control an entire city,” said Jonathan Morin, creative director, Ubisoft. “In Watch Dogs, anything connected to the city’s Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale that’s never been seen in a video game before.

You can see the IP launch trailer here.
