Game Republic

Game Republic (Genji, Folklore) Is Officially Closed + A Folklore 2 Tidbit

It’s not too often that we hear of a Japanese developer closing up shop but apparently such a thing has happened recently.

Dragon Ball Returns To The Nintendo DS In Ultimate Butoden

We’re never in short supply when it comes to games based on the Dragon Ball franchise.  The thing is that often we don’t get the good games, whether it was back in the day for the Gameboy or now with the new Dragon Ball arcade game or the recently released Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butoden for the Nintendo DS.  Unless you’re a hardcore DB fan that follows everything DB related (and has a pair of DB pajamas) then you may not have known a single thing about Ultimate Butoden and I woul

Clash of the Titans: The Video Game [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Clash of the Titans: The Video Game is an epic waste of time to play. Those who enjoyed the movie are likely to be burned by a game that is extremely dull and fails to capture the Greek mythology essence. Even those looking for a mindless action game are sure to be disappointed by a combat engine that feels like it belongs in a PS1 game.

The Pros: 

There’s laughter to be had by some of the bad voice acting and production values. Smashing skeletons to pieces is mildly entertaining for the first twenty minutes.

The Cons: 

Visually unimpressive in almost every way, especially the lifeless cutscenes. The combat lacks a spark and doesn’t offer much we haven’t seen before. Most of the missions and levels are extremely boring.

Being an avid gamer, I like to support as many games as I can, whether they’re big budget AAA titles or lesser known IPs/indie games. Sometimes my openness to support a game, not necessarily hyping it up to others, can backfire on me in such an ugly way that I can’t help but feel like an ass.  One such game that my anticipation of has completely punched me in the gut is the game adaptation of the recent Clash of the Titans remake. 

More demigod action in these new Clash of the Titans - The Video Game screens

I’m going to be honest and say that I thought the “Clash of the Titans” remake sucked big time. Somehow despite a solid cast, a good director and a basic premise the film was just a monumental disappointment for me.  Most of the issues the film had can be chalked up to story changes made during filming which in essence changed the whole theme of the movie.

New screens for the buddy adventure that is Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom

Sony’s highly awaited The Last Guardian may not be coming out this year but those looking for a unique fantasy game still have the option of picking up Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom. Just like The Last Guardian, Majin features an unlikely hero who teams up with a majestic creature in a lost land.  To get a better idea of what Majin is all about I suggest you take a peek at the trailer for the game.
