The always busy Q1 season has struck again this year, as I've been plenty busy with playing games for review and planning for the games that are coming soon. I've even seen a few games that are coming beyond March that I can't wait to get my hands on and play them for myself.
Heavy Rain is the heavily-hyped psychological thriller/adventure game from Quantic Dream that features a flexible story that continues even when a protagonist dies and should result in different experiences for everyone that plays it. Shiren the Wanderer is a good roguelike that should be a good place for newbies to start with the genre while roguelike fans can find a lot of depth and stuff to do. Chime is probably the most relaxing puzzle game that has been released in a while and most of the cost goes to charity.
"Heavy Rain definitely provides a thrilling experience that very few games can compete with that makes it an easy recommendation for anyone that liked the demo or is interested in the game. A few control issues aside, the game plays just fine and is definitely worth a purchase for the eight to ten hours the story lasts, if the protagonists donít die."
Heavy Rain for the PS3 received a Buy It recommendation. You can read the full review over at SmashPad.
Shiren the Wanderer
"Shiren the Wanderer is a good roguelike that offers enough of an easy experience early on to let those new to the genre ease into the game. Roguelike fans will also like the depth they will find beyond the basics that will keep them busy throughout the campaign. Its $40 price point is well worth it for the amount of content youíll find here. Basically, if youíre interested in roguelikes, this is one that you need to check out."
Shiren the Wanderer for the Wii received a Buy It recommendation. You can read the full review over at SmashPad.
"Chime does a good job of providing a fun and enjoyable experience that may not have a ton of music to choose from, but it offers enough to make the 400 Microsoft points ($5 US) a worthy expense when most of that cost will be going to charity."
Chime for XBLA received a Buy It recommendation. You can read the full review over at SmashPad.
