One of My Favorites

Incendia_Intus | Nov. 21, 2013 | Review of Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition (NA)

This was a throwback of the older RPGs I grew up with for me, with updated graphics and a few new mechanics. The combat was easily my favorite part. I paused often, turning it into more of a turn based RPG. However, it can also be played in real-time effectively.

The storyline itself was generic, and I don't really see the praise it gets. The characters themselves, though, were entertaining and interesting. Getting to know each and every one of them on a deeper level was satisfying.

The game and all of the DLC sucked up a huge chunk of my time, in a good way. I've replayed the base game more times than I remember, each with a different class.

If you're a fan of RPGs, this is definitely one you don't want to miss.

The Mighty Pirate™ returns!

Incendia_Intus | Nov. 21, 2013 | Review of Tales of Monkey Island

A new, and entertaining, installment to the Monkey Island series. Fans of the original and/or Telltale games will enjoy it. It was a nostalgic experience for me. The dialogue, voices, characters, and puzzles were all done superbly.

The game (including all 5 chapters) took me around 10 or 12 hours to complete, and there weren't any dull moments. I'd say it's money well spent for anyone who picks it up.

A Good Game & Reboot

Incendia_Intus | Nov. 18, 2013 | Review of Tomb Raider

I was a little iffy on this purchase (having bad reboot experiences before,) but instead of a letdown, I received an amazing game.

The graphics are stunning and top notch, from the environment, to the creatures, to the characters. I actually cringed at some of the injuries I witnessed. The animations are equally flawless.

The game-play was very fluid with keyboard/mouse & gamepad. I never found myself frustrated at the character for not doing what I wanted her to do. The length of the game is decent at about 10 hours, give or take an hour or two, and offers replayability through collectibles, different approaches, and enjoying game-play.

Overall, this was a leap in the right direction in every way, in my opinion.
