Masterpiece

supernautbr | Feb. 12, 2013 | Review of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)

I will not even mention that it's good to prepare to die (a lot), because the title already says that, but in the end you will not die as much as you think you would, because the game is really very difficulty if compared to what we are used to see. But before the details, I suggest that if you're the kind who likes RPG and a good challenge, play this masterpiece as soon as possible, otherwise you'll wonder why haven't played before. If you already decided to play, you don't need to finish reading this, I guarantee that when you finish the game you'll know it's true.

The combat system, the equipments and crafting are very well made, it's unique. Battles are epic and require patience and strategy, as each enemy, weapon or armor acts differently and really gives you an alternate play style. You must learn to adapt to conditions that constantly changes as you progress. There is not a single moment that you can stop and say "I finally made out of this hell" because the next area is certainly worse. This makes you feel very well about having overcome every challenge. It almost outstands every other RPG out there, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view. The PC port's technical problems can be fixed with a simple mod, and I say that I found only 2 places where I felt a framerate drop, but this is insignificant if we add everything this game has to offer.

My final thoughts are: buy it and enjoy it, while you're still alive.

Good JRPG, but not for everyone.

supernautbr | Jan. 18, 2013 | Review of The Last Remnant Overflow

There are not many options of JRPG's for PC right now, so, if you liked FF's on PS and PS2, the game has almost the same gameplay mechanics, except that it's harder, a lot harder, and has a different approach in combat and the story is not so fascinating.

You need strategy, you need to know the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy. Prepare to encounter tough bosses, hunt rare monsters, and maybe secrets that you'll only find using a guide, because there's a lot of stuff you'll miss otherwise.

The game is all fun for JRPG lovers, and can take 100h+ if you want, but can be a bit overwhelming for the standard gamer.
