5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 25 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game is amazing. Created by the developers of the Persona series. Its different as most games rely on combat, violence or being kiddified, whereas this game is more of a social aspect to the game as your character, Vincent, deals with relationship problems, but at the same time has to figure out why people are dying in their sleep.

Catherine is a puzzle game that gets progressively harder as you advance the game, but that's not where the meat of the game is. It's in its story, which is complimented by its amazing graphics, animation and art style. But it also delves into relationship and social issues at the same.

It's different and it might not be some people's cup of tea. For me though, it's a breath of fresh air for the gaming world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halo returns, 22 Nov 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Halo 4 returns and and it returns big.

The first part is the Campaign/Story mode. Halo 4 begins four years after the events of Halo 3, Master Chief has woken up from cryosleep by his AI companion Cortana to deal with a new threat. That's as far as I'll go with the plot, I don't wanna ruin the game for anyone.

343 industries have put a lot of effort into this game and it has paid off big time. The artwork, design, animations, script and voice acting are some of the best I have ever seen. They really help sell the story and the relationship between Master Chief and Cortana. Not only that, but the game is filled with epic moments that only Halo can do.

Multiplayer is another core component of the Halo franchise and it's back in a similar, but slightly different way. Halo multiplayer is rebranded as War Games, a battle simulation on board the warship called Infinity. Players take their Spartan and gain combat experience for the real fight. It's just a fancier way of saying that we'll put Call of Duty style XP points and killstreak rewards. It's a nice addition, but you'll only use rifles with a scope or the magnum pistol as that a scope on it. it's still Halo, but with a few CoD inspired additions.

The newest addition is Spartan Ops. A weekly episodic co-op mode. Gone has Firefight and its replaced by Spartan Ops. It's mission based objectives on a series of levels coupled with a story that is told through a TV show format. It's pretty good, but a bit basic. Best played with lots of friends to get the most out of it.

Overall, Halo 4 is a big return to the game that popularized console FPS and it doesn't disappoint.

It's a USB cable for a PlayStation Vita. It does what it says on the box. What more do you want it to do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Shikamaru's Battle, 2 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naruto volume 37 (Paperback)
WARNING! This review may contain SPOILERS! You have been warned!

Naruto Vol. 37 is another chapter of Naruto's quest to become Hokage (Fire Shadow) of his village. This time though the book focuses on Shikamaru seeing as though the title is called "Shikamaru's Battle".

Now I am a fan of Naruto and have been collecting the series for a long time now, so reading this volume is no different. It focuses more Cell Number 10 as they're out for revenge for their fallen Master, with Naruto continuing his training.

Overall, I enjoyed this volume as it shows suspense and tension during Cell No. 10 battle with the Akatsuki members and how they overcome their obstacles. It also shows the characters maturing from the previous Saga (Vol. 1-37) as well as some insight to the Akatsuki members Hidan and Kakuzu.


Warcraft: v. 1 Dragon Hunt (Warcraft: Sunwell Trilogy)
Warcraft: v. 1 Dragon Hunt (Warcraft: Sunwell Trilogy)
by Kim Jae-Hwan
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Could've have been a lot better, 9 Sep 2007
This book could've have been better given the universe it is set in. The book for me felt a little too linear and not enough emphasis on the character development. It just felt it was moving from one place to another far too quickly.

When the book begins, we (the reader) are given an introduction to the Warcraft universe with what had happened in the first three games (Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos) with a brief history lesson for those who haven't followed the story. This, I found, was actually good to put in as it helps the reader get up to speed with the Warcraft Universe.

But after this, there's no solid pace to the actual plot itself. Sure, stuff happens and people get injured, but it feels uninspiring. It's like "Character A meets Character B who both go to Place A to meet Characters C & D. Characters A, B, C & D meet Villain A and his Henchmen" type of scenario, it's very generic. Even the characters themselves are typical fantasy types with dragons, undead, armour-clad male warriors and scantily-clad females. Given the diversity of the characters that can be created in Warcraft, I don't know why they went with the typical fantasy stereotypes.

Don't get me wrong, Jae-Hwan Kim's artwork is superb as he has got some real artistry skill with the characters he has drawn. But even so, it still doesn't help the book. The front cover shows the vibrance in the Warcraft universe with its use of colour whereas the pages themselves are shown in black and white, which, in my view, dulls the story and the feel of the Warcraft universe.

The book itself is not bad nor is it good, the characters and plot are not poor, but they're not inspired; they exist just to exist. For a universe like Warcraft, this book should have had the plot and character development padded out a lot more than what has been shown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Showdown!! Fox vs. Raccoon, 9 Sep 2007

This review is from: Naruto volume 15 (Paperback)
This book is a great volume to have in the excellent Naruto series.

It features some pretty cool fight sequences, but this volume shows more about the characters themselves and their secrets such as Sasuke's reason for why he is an avenger and the reason why Naruto has a connection with Gaara.

Overall, it's a good setup for the next volume as it is left at a cliffhanger moment in the battle.
