I will start by saying I’ve had mixed feelings about this game. Even thought Tales of Graces is an enhanced port of a Wii game and it would be unfair to expect it to at least have the same quality of graphics as Tales of Vesperia, there are some things that I think are not excusable but before going about the bad, let’s start with the good part because what is good in it, is actually really good.

So what kind of games are good for work, one might ask. When I thnik of it I am taking into account you’re not using the beefed up computer you might have at home but instead a PC with limited power, so games that are hardware intensive are left out of this list but I’ll probably have some exception as the laptop I have at work, while far from a good gaming machine, can run well some recent games like Fallout 3 (by recent I mean this gen).
Other things to take into account are how will you be able to play it, after all you are at work. I believe it for a game to be suitable for work it shoud match some criteria:
It can’t have long cutscenes, even though I like them a lot, since you are at work you never know when you are going to be needed. If anything, at least those cutscenes should be in the style of games that only the next line of dialogue advances as you press a button. At least if you have to do something out of the blue, at least the game is “paused” until you come back.
It can’t be action oriented: I love action games, especially technical ones such as Devil May Cry 3, Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta, even though only one of those have a PC version, it would take too much of your attention and depending on the person could even have you screaming at the screen, not to mention the controls. Some games play perfectly fine on a controller just as a keyboard and mouse but not all of those, which leaves us to the next criteria.
Should be played well without a controller: Once I tried playing Rayman Origins at work. At first it seemed like a good idea, a platformer with an autosave feature each stage, infinite lives, which means you can turn it off at any time if needed but it had one single issue: controls. I found it really hard to play this game at its best using just a keyboard and unless you’re the boss I wouldn’t recommend pluging in your Xbox 360 controller, too much attention.
With that out of the way, let’s go to the list: Continue reading
Being it from the same creators of the game Flower which I liked a lot, I though this was one I would have to try out. Continue reading
After so many characters, planets, side stories and adventures it is hard to not be invested in the Mass effect universe. With that in mind, this review will be more of a personal experience than a review, which in some way is good but on the other hand there should be some spoilers, probably for the first two games of the series but in occasion the third as well.
So, Commander Sheppard is back to stop the Reapers and as soon as the game starts you are in full force into it. After a few scenes you realize instead of fighting head on the optimal course of action would be to gather the forces across the galaxy while at the same time working on a discovered weapon against the Reapers designed by ancient civilizations.

About yesterday night I was watching a video on youtube of a channel I have subscribed and they were reviewing Dear Esther. The funny thing was that the person didn’t know how to begin or even describe Dear Esther. Ironically I don’t know where to star either. Continue reading
If you have a Playstation 3 or an Xbox 360 chances are you at least heard of this title called Demon’s Souls. It was what many considered a sleeper hit that came by surprise shook many people off their feet. Continue reading
