DmC: Devil May Cry has been a source of controversy for fans of the Devil May Cry series. Apparently, whether Dante looks like a white haired anime character is more important to fans than whether the gameplay is fast, smooth, and most important...Read Full Post »

While there is still a tenuous relationship between the game industry and consumers, events of recent years have shown that publishers are becoming more receptive to the requests of their customers. Two notable examples were the fan outcry over the disappointing endings to Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 3, prompting the developers to create patches for both titles that would amend the concl...Read Full Post »

Sorry for the delay, here's the conclusion!
10. Safer Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
The final boss of FF7, this really makes it to the top 10 soley because of the music. One Winged Angel is a great theme, and even if you use Knights of the Round as a cheap move, it's a memorable climax.
9. The Black Knight (Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time)
I won't say the knight's identity as that ruins the big twist of Sly 4, but this two pa...Read Full Post »

The No More Heroes series is one of the best franchises in video game history. They have lots of variety, addictive game play and some of the best bosses in all of video games. Just like the title said, I made up a list of what I believe to be the ten b...Read Full Post »

What would you consider a Star Trek license Co-op game? Fun? A punishment?
I sure didn’t have fun, never before have I played such an uninspired Star Trek game and I’ve played all them. When thinking about a third person Star Trek action shooter the first thing that has to comes to mind is Platforming with horrific controls, right? If at any point that was the first thought you had about a Star Trek game then this is the game for you! Star Trek the game is mor...Read Full Post »

When it comes to favorite villains, we often rank them based on how they act or just their sheer personality.
With video games, there's an additional layer to that: How fun they are to fight. With boss fights, it doesn't matter if the villain's lame, the fight can be really fun.
Here's part 1 of a 2 part list: (There will be spoilers)
20. Tiny Tiger (Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped)
The first boss of the game is fought in a Rom...Read Full Post »

Bioshock has been one of the most acclaimed video games series of the last decade. The first entry in the franchise, a spiritual successor to the cyberpunk horror classic System Shock 2, was widely praised for its deep, philosophical narrative, a successful blending of genres ranging from dystopian science fiction to survival horror, complex characters...Read Full Post »

When it came to video gaming for me, by 2003, there had been a lot of "firsts" I went through. I had gone through my first Mario game, my first Spyro, my first extreme sports, and my first kart racer. I had played multiple Final Fantasy games byy that point, but Final Fantasy X-2 was something different for me, and I don't mean the fact it was the first direct sequel.
You see, all the previous FF games I played, they technically were my older brother's games that he let me p...Read Full Post »

THE NON FINAL FANTASY MUSIC OF NOBUO UEMASTU
This is probably going to be very disappointingly short, but the fact is I haven’t really played the games featured here. They’re all great pieces of music on their own, but I can’t say how well they relate to story or character or how well they f...Read Full Post »

THE MUSIC OF FINAL FANTASY 11, FINAL FANTASY 12 AND FINAL FANTASY 14
Before Uematsu left Square Enix he did compose a small number of tracks for the MMO game Final Fantasy XI and was assisted by Kumi Tanioka and Naoshi Mizuta . The two tracks I’m going to list are Ronfaure and the game’s theme son...Read Full Post »

Welcome to Patricia's Jewels, a video game series where I cover my favorite games. Whether it's triple "A", indie hits, cult classics, and underrated, obscure games that I feel deserve more recognition. Hopefully, my review will let you check out the game for yourself. Today's game we're going to cover is an underrated cinematic platformer back in 1997. Back in 1994, a new indie vid...Read Full Post »

THE MUSIC OF FINAL FANTASY 10
Final fantasy 10 has the distinction of being the first Final Fantasy game I ever played and the first time I was able to hear Uematsu’s music as an actual part of the soundtrack as opposed to One Winged Angel’s guest appearance in Kingdom Hearts. Uematsu didn’t...Read Full Post »

Nowadays, first person shooters are everywhere. It’s gotten to a point where even complaining about how saturated the market has become is becoming a cliché. To be honest, I’m largely indifferent to the issue –especially since I rarely get into modern games to begin with. Though I did get Borderlands 2 for Christmas and that is a really good game. Either way, there was one game that changed the face of first-person shooters forever. A game that helped move more Nintendo...Read Full Post »

Few characters in gaming have been as maligned as Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series. His introduction in the second entry in the franchise, Sons of Liberty, was not well received. Players expecting another adventure with Solid Snake became annoyed when the iconic operative was dropped after the introductory mission, replaced with a novice agent lacking Sn...Read Full Post »

Video games have come a very long way. Games have incorporated stories that we care about and are intrigued by. The creativity comes from the style and the characteristics of each protagonist (even background characters). Along with being just so freeing when it comes to atmosphere, it makes us feel like we are in the game. However, there is one more great thing about video games that has been around for the longest time. The music.
