Tradition. It's all about tradition. The Dragon Quest series exemplifies video game tradition above all else, and the fifth game in the series carries this concept forward in all major aspects of game design (even if it's a DS remake coming out 17 years after the original Super Famicom release). The Dragon Quest series (and its spin-offs, no less!) have become an important part of the extensive library of quality DS RPGs. DQ V originally released in Japan for the Super Famicom (1992) (then later remade for the PS2, Japan only, in 2004); Square Enix released this DS remake in 2009 outside Japan... (more)

Xenoblade (Wii) is one of the best RPGs I have played and completed on any video game system, in no small part due its impressive soundtrack. After finishing the game, I sought out and became the proud owner of the official soundtrack CD (Japan), which spans four CDs with a total of 91 tracks!.. (more)

Inspired by Anand's 'choose your top 5' roundtable, I am curious to find out your opinion on another topic dear to my heart: what are your top 5 non-Square Enix RPGs on Nintendo systems? I decided to make it non-Square Enix to avoid the Chrono Triggers, Final Fantasies, and Dragon Quests that will surely pop up on many lists... (more)

I've been enjoying this game lately as a means of introducing my wife to the AC series. I loved the GameCube version; it came at a perfect time in my life when I had moved out of my parents' place after college and had a place of my own (alone) for the first time (an amazing parallel to the 'story' in the game of having your own place and meeting new friends). It was very comforting, to say the least. I later went on to the DS version at one point, but the cart was lost/ stolen and I never got back into to it... (more)

I haven't made it that far in the game yet but it's been very enjoyable so far. 6 hours in and I'm starting to make progress in my hero's adventure. This shouldn't come as a spoiler to anyone who knows anything about the game's story, but I finished the part of the game you play as a child, and now the hero is ten years older (young adult)...

"To lose a bullet is to lose a life, and to lose a life is to lose a bullet." This is apparently the slogan used by the developer, EnjoyUp Games, to describe this unusual shoot-em-up game. 99Bullets resembles a standard vertical space shooter but throws in some very interesting features that separates it from its many clones...

"A Slime draws near! Command?" The Dragon Quest series has been around for a long time, with the first game (1986 in Japan, 1989 in North America and titled 'Dragon Warrior') being considered one of the most influential games of all time (not just role-playing games but video games in general). This DS version (released in Japan 2007, worldwide 2008) is a remake of the fourth game in the series, Dragon Warrior IV on the NES (1990 in Japan, 1992 in North America). Though the game features vast improvements over the NES game in many ways (notably the graphics and sound), it still manages to retain much of the old-school RPG elements that have come to define the series in the first place. Gather your sword, Hero, and embark on your journey to save the world from evil once again!.. (more)
