White Knight Chronicles II

The White Knight Chronicle 2 made a huge comeback after its huge setback on its first release of the White Knight Chronicles 1 they made the game more indeed a bit more a fast based action RPG than before. As for the game item design though, I must admit almost half of the new items i see and used are mostly recoloured and redesign or recycled design, sadly to say it was a bit of a disappointment that this items didn't put much work into it. What they did do is put some new items instead, I guess its to compensate with the old items that they recycled. Another disapointment was one of there build was a twin blade which can only be unlock via shortsword build they didn't even think Katana build can wield dual sword the other sword can be extra leverage in critical situation for Katana users, but sad to say only shortsword builds can wield a two blades for use. The game did have some new feature they put in so as to where you want to begin the game its advisable to start the game right from the very start as in to the very chapter one so that on the first half of the story you can complete some of the newly added feature like monster hunts, and errands because if you don't you will be very busy in completed this subquest instead of just focusing in the main story in the second part of the game but anyway its your decision to where you want to start your game. The perks of starting in the very beginning is that in the time you finish the 1st half of the story the only problem you will be dealing with is leveling and letting the new knight of Yulie hunt her equipment. Also right off the bat you can start with even higher level not just in level 35 but more higher depends on where you left off in the 1st half of the game you just completed. Also unlike before in White Knight Chronicles 1 in this newly revised White Knight Chronicle 2 level is important. as before you just need to hit level 50 and worry about your guild leveling in the entire online experience. The other new feature in which I'm really fund on is letting Leonard and the other join you in the online quest via going to the world map and choosing the solo mode in which there they are at your disposal. But it was a shame that in the solo mission or even in the story mode your Ai teammates still can't manage on their own you still need to have a constant watchful eye not to let everyone get killed, in short they never did made the Ai teammates smarter they are still dumb as ever. They made a bit of variety on to how to get your equipment via binding the equipment you want or Buying it in a Dulha point system. in binding you hunt for the items needed to bind your certain equipment, and in Dulha you need to complete quests to have a point and use it to buy your equipment you want. Also the most anticipated feature of huge change in the game is having your avatar use a knight. Its a very big change for having this kind of feature, really makes this game more unique for you can do quest with the use of your knight and in online quest makes every battle with an epic end with the use of this equipment called knights or they call it incorruptus. Even though some quest don't allow knights its still pretty awesome that for the quest that allows knight but not everything is so glamorous if we talk about leveling its still a bit of a nightmare you still need to put an extreme like doing this one particular quest over and over again to achieve the level you desire. Overall the game did made a huge improvement its more fun to play and its not slow phased as before. 8.7 / 10. Almost forgot to mention if there is a part three of this game I'll see and look if I have time to make a review on when part three comes out.

The Sims 3 Generation (Review)

As far the game goes in term on the quality, game play its a game you will like but to the fact that the bug issue and other error codes are not given a complete and very certified solution this really hurt your gameplay experience for a number of reason. Also fixing this bug is a hustle and sometimes can be a waste for some have no solution at all.

You can sometimes escape the problem by just dropping all your CC(custom content) and play with the default item that the game has to offer but of course you will lose all your downloaded item unless you have a backup. After the Late Night series I was expecting for the Generation to be less buggy but in turns out to be the other way around, and its not in a good way because of all this mess not being fix it really effects the game in one bug this error 12, 13, and 16. it really a mess in tern of fixing it you need to download some stuff to make the problem go away, and by missing a step in the instruction it could cause your computer to have a virus instead, so I guess the saying goes to download at your own risk.

The Verdict:

Sound & Music - As always this game is best when it comes to all genre of music and the sound when you  play the game is pretty entertaining to hear.8.0

Gameplay - Because of the error codes and other bug issue you will experience during gameplay or even unsavable data it might get frustrating from time to time 5.9

Graphics - In order for some of the error to be avoided you need to lower your graphics in which to play smoothly without any lag or error. Even so some graphic settings can still be put in high, it all depends on your computer you use I guess. 7.6

Lasting Appeal  - Because of the game issues of some bugs isn't fix or hasn't found any solution yet. It destroy the experience of playing the game. So as far to playing this for a long time I find it not possible it will again depends on the gamer if they have the will power and patience for the bugs to be fixed someday. Because I can't see anyone playing a game in which he/she will encounter problems that again you need to download some sofeware to fix and some bugs and errors are, I will say it again unsolved. 7.4

The Sims Medieval (Review)


If your the type of gamer who is looking for a action packed and bloody battle of an RPG game you might end up not liking this game for the reason all of the fight scene is like two children fighting with a wooden sword and seeing who will win over a piece of candy, to me that what it's look like. You also can't travel outside of your kingdom.. Sure you can travel by foot or a ship, but you won't see any landscape, or seascape outside your kingdom there will be just a pop-up window that tells what is your sim doing outside your kingdom or on another country kinda like a story book telling the story. For what the most part this game will not be enjoyed by everyone, it really doesn't focus on RPG that much, the only RPG genre that I can see here is that changing the lifewish into a quest wish. It is where you perform task and complete it to make your sims happy and also the achievement book in were you will find in the main menu of the game. Like the main sims game it still focuses mainly with "playing with life" so if your looking for an RPG with bloods and spills and something involving epic war battles, you might considering not to buy this one for there are no blood or even action pack drama in the Sims Medieval.well mostly has funny antics and troubles for your sims to handle and finish which is a quest wish. But I will give it to the gamers for they really made this game more human like than the other sims games. For they made the skins and facial features a 100% like human even the eyes really make it more human like looks, and whats more impressive is you can create your very own elf. But for some reason the game computer doesn't create elf at all not even a single country has an elf only you have the the choice if you what to make your sims look like an elf or not. If your are looking for the typical peasant life with this game you won't be able to do it because the game only let's you control hero sims not your typical sims who lives in a small house somewhere in the village. The hero sims are the one's you can control, complete a quest and making them happy if they finish a quest. Lastly we talk about death your sims don't actually grow old the only way for your sims to die is if they are killed in a so called battle with another sims or been eaten by a monster in the judgment area and yes its still inside your kingdom not outside. If ever their is a patchup somewhere in the near future they should really fix the "hero sims is the only sim that is controllable", for sometimes a peasant life should also be played by everyone. As for the game stands:

graphics- the sims and landscape of your kingdom really was well made so much so they almost look like real people. 9.0

gameplay- It is easy and very simple to use even a 10 year old can play it, so for the genre that tells it can only be played by teen it was a bit exaggerated. 8.0

Sound&Music- All the sim games I play all the sound and music are amazing. In this version of the sims they made a whole different language that is really amazing to hear, as also the music you will really feel like your in their world. 9.0

Lasting Appeal- I will all depends on the gamer if they really enjoy playing with life or just want to see a medieval sim suffer they might enjoy this almost to a point doesn't want to quit. 8.0

Overall Verdict- It is yes a very addictive game if you find it to your liking that is, But as for some they just gonna play this from time to time for one reason and one reason only. Its like playing the main sims but your sims has royalty wardrobe to wear. and a less decency in taking a leak. If there a pot somewhere in the house or castle you go and do your thing in front of other sims in which I really find it very funny. Oh I forgot to mention there is less build design gameplay you will be doing in the Sims Medieval, you won't be able to rearrange your castle walls and stuff like that. You can only arrange are the things inside your house or castle or buy some new stuff to rearranges. In the end you will find this game a bit mediocre. 7.9

The Sims Late Night

Sorry to inform that I won't be able to do a basic game guide, somehow every of my game data and backup file crash due to some of the virus that affected my computer.

To start up this expansion really does give off a lot of new feature it even gives a new feel to the game play say with the other expansion but for this one really takes the cake because they give a new type of profession you can take. The new vampire. You also have a wider selection when it comes to music you can even form a band and a new way to relax by going in a jacuzzi. Well so far this are the good things, what this expansion lack's is some action for me I was expecting like a twilight kind of theme, just like in the adventure expansion were you can fight by using martial arts skill but here their main focus is the night life there's no action or what so ever. The only thrill I can find with this is how the vampires run and the way the Mixologist do their job.
By the way this two images are the only two picture I could salvage with all my lost file.




Also if you love the taste of city life and want to try and manage a whole city for yourself, you might want to try the Late Night Expansion for it will bring a new feel in playing doll house. For The Sims 3 this is the only expansion that will let you manage a whole city instead of a town.

As for the verdict- As far as it goes there are still some changes that they could have done but as of it stands its still not that perfect as you would expect especially with some minor bug issue that can be found in the game and yes sometimes it can ruin the feel of the game play because of this bug issue.
As it stands:
Sound&Music- is in the excellent level it still has the feel of the old Sims. 8.9
Gameplay- its so easy to use anyone can play this game but there is just the concern of the minor bug issue that put down the game a bit. 7.9
Graphic- Since the Sims 1 the Sims 3 really step up to the plate but as far as the Late Night expansion special effects goes its in the mideocre. 8.5
Story- The unique thing with Sim is you are the one who will tell the story you will create your own beginning and end. 8.8
Overall- This expansion pack really give something new as far as I'm concern this is one is the best expansion that the Sims has to offer for the year 2010. 8.9
Lasting Appeal-If your the type of playing a simple control, or even playing house you are sure to enjoy this game with hours and hours of controling your sim with the new features that this expansion has to offer. 9.0

White Knight Chronicles (International Edition) A Game For MMORPG Fans...


This game is one of those games that has minor flaws in its battle system and in its graphics. For example, no matter how far you are from the enemy you cannot really avoid being hit. This is because the game play depends on the numeral level you are in. If your agility or evasion rate is high enough then that may prevent you from being hit regardless of your distance from the enemy. The graphics of this game is excellent, however, the game play battle system looks unrealistic. I would say this game is a cross between previous games like Ragnarok, Rogue Galaxy for the game play and Kingdom Hearts for the graphics.

As in Ragnarok, the battle is all dependent on the numeric status you earn. In fact your enemy will miss if your evasion rate is high, so if you go in battle mode every action you take will depend on your status. There’s no physics involved, which makes it unrealistic at times. There are path of weapon or magical specialist you can level up as you progresses in your training to whatever kind of build you want to take.

In the battle mode, your action is controlled by the ring timer called the action gauge, which is almost the same feature in Rogue Galaxy. As for the graphics, there is a sense of realism but the only problem with it is the lip sync isn’t that perfect.

One thing I like about this game is the geonet system, which is a good idea. With this you can form a party with friends, have a chat with anyone who came to visit, or you can visit their town and socialize or party. Another feature that I like is the option to create your own town, which is pretty cool. Its like creating “SimCity middle ages styles”.

Overall, this game may not be perfect but its still one of the game you’ll enjoy because of the socialising, you can even do an all nighter. Furthermore, after your first walkthrough is finished, you can actually get rare items at your second walkthrough. I love this setup about the game because it can still make you pretty busy even after you finish the first walkthrough. You can get to keep your equipment and levels on your second walkthrough and do more new hunts on the second. One last thing, I will not tell the story of the game, but the entire theme is mostly focused on one person and its not your character.


Gameplay: 7.6

I must admit, the battle system took away some sense of realism in the game play this is why the score is a bit low, only for this reason alone. I think the only way for this to improve is for the developers to do an online download patchup to which players can install a new and realistic game play.

Graphics: 8.0

Excellent graphics, the developers really maximized the use of the blue ray, the only concern is the lip sync isn’t coordinated and some of the character creation colour skin makes it look a bit like a cartoon.

Sound & Music : 7.8

The music is closely based on medieval era but at times the battle music and the background music is redundant.

Lasting Appeal: 8.0

Fans of MMORPG games will enjoy this game. If your not the social type of person it might not appeal to you.

Overall verdict: The game play is just not perfect and some player are just playing jackass, it took away the fun of the experience away. But again this is an mmorpg so that would be expected so its. 7.7

additional note: This review will continue on the late summer of 2011 After they release the WKC 2 in Canada.

The Sims 3...Ambition Expansion Pack




Hi guys its time to talk about and give the basics on how to play the game with the new expansion pack of the sim 3.

 As you can see here after I got back from China I started off with a very run down small house.

 their aren't much to see, the house is a bit messy there not even a garden on the back lot.
Even the inside is a sad place to stay in, well this is how we start of with just a limited amount of funds in the beginning of the game.










This has a connection with the ambition expansion pack for the game you get to choose a job and work on the field at the same time in the promotions you get the bigger the money you can attain.


for my job I chosen one of the basic job on the sims. ever taken its been in the Sims 1 and 2, its the Medical career field.

I never did noticed that but for every time I go to work my sim is always in a hurry, by the way don't mind the Ferrari on the background that one belongs to her neighbor next door. Anyway going back further more I'll not explain the medical career track in detail nor the positions they hold for every promotion on the job. But not to worry I will send a link about all of that on the bottom of this blog. For this time I will just explain the basic run down on all what to expect in some of the new feathur in the game.



This is a on the field assignment by the hospital, she went to a building to check up on a certain patient.


 My sims patient arrived late so she had to wait for 30 mins sim time before the patient arrived and got her checkup.



 As you can see from the photo's above she located the patient and had her checkup done. This is one of the new feature I was talking about in the ambition expansion.Tons of field work to where you have to make and control your sim to do his or her job to succed with out any problem.

  As you see in the photo's she is heading to some of the request given to her by the neighborhood,on the picture on the left the request was to convince the man my sim is talking to to stop overdoozing his intake on the medical suplies. Also the photo on the bottom tells that she is heading to some local business around town on the safety of their produced by having a DNA analysis on the items they are selling.

















Their is also one job about having to teach health classes to certain huge business establishments around town. It pops up randomly on you work day hours, even when your in break time.I can't show any photos because for my computer can't show the job request tabs on the screen shots I took so sorry about this.



 Here I'm on a party with one of my friends around town, well as time goes by someone upstairs felt sick.

 So as any good doctor would do I went to that sick person so I had to cut my party time short.






As shown on the images on the left the patient had to have an extended treatment to make her feel better.

I'm pointing out is this is alsoone of those days you hate for you have to miss a very good friend's party because a sick person needed your help.






















This is also one request from a certain client in the hospital the job was to throw his friend a party to make his friend agree to some terms in the hospital, its those jobs where you have to do to earn a promotion. Again its a "on the field work" for the neighborhood. The photo above shows that the client is standing next to the dance floor, its the woman with a white long hair with a red sweat shirt.




This is how would I say, one of the funny bits of being a doctor I tried an experiment on those experimental medicine I got from the hospital and it failed dramatically. It was hilarious all the way to the end. For the reason my sim catches on fire and the way shes looking at in this photo is like a crazy person who is looking to dump some "number two's" on the toilet seat, But as for her shes OK I did the experiment at home and quickly put out the fire on the comfort room and if you guys still wondering whats "number two" is look inside your butt you'll find out.





 The pictures on the top and left corners are the things I bough after working tirelessly on the job as a doctor now my home is filled with new and useful stuff for my sim to use or enjoy. As for the new bike its another extension of the sims 3 called Fast Lane. this is just to clarify things for you guys to know where I bought those vehicle, this also include the Ferrari that her neighbor have earlier.




I got a bit bored with my profession so I cheated a little. What I did is I created this building on a vacant lot which in this case behind my house, anyway after I pressed the ctrl shift + C, typed the code testingcheatsenabled true. I then press shift + right click on that particular house then pops in the cheat "spawn job". I selected the free vaccine checkup then pops the job info on the upper right corner of the screen I selected perform job then a number of people came to that lot and went to have their checkup as the picture on the bottom shown.






Its funny to see and look at on how she goes and gives her checkup to her patients, she have as shown on the photos a portable x-ray machine, portable ultra sound and all the things that a doctor uses to give a patient their medicine.

 If you ask me she is actually checking his reflex muscle, but on the head this is a bit weird. shouldn't that be on the knee? Still its entertaining to watch them do this things to feel better or be cured.

 This particular cheat doesn't actually pay but it actually gives you the opportunity to help the people around town feel better that is to say cheating a bit. Again this cheat doesn't pay it just bring you closer to the towns people all over town.










That's it for the basics on what to expect on the ambition expansion pack to learn more about other jobs and such go to this link on the bottom  of the screen that you see here right now....

http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/ambitions/


 Note: For those who are wondering about the profession Tattoo Artist, The Sims 3 actually didn't include it in the series you can have tattoo ingame, but its only a way to express or get close to other sims in the town. The profession is'nt available because they never include it from the start..
It was false advertising by the EA games company.
Next week we will go to the other expansion pack which is The Sims 3 Late Night...

Eternal Sonata Unique simple as that--







The story of the game is indeed you can describe one of the unique RPG games out their. The battle system is what you can say "hard to master" but has a sense of humor and fun and challenge to it, true it can be sometimes a pain to level up but once you make your party sturdy and manageable you can feel the sense of relief and satisfaction of the game play. As for the story I felt a sense of depression when I first saw the "Introductional cut scene" seeing Chopin sleeping in his deathbed slowly dieing it just didn't feel right. Also what worse he had an attack of his seizure before going through that state, it just reminded me of my own sickness as well but to all that I found the story of Eternal Sonata a rpg to remember. it so diverse and the character has their own back story to it. I can tell this is one of the rpg games worth playing because of the feel of it its like your watching a story comic come to life, this is where there uniqueness come in play. The game play is like a clock board game into where when times runs out, you will be switching to defensive tactic to were you just hit one button to guard the character or counter attack the enemy. Its quit easy to use but hard to master especially on your second play through. To this ends I say this is one of the game that is unique as I said, and the feel of reality and facts of life that makes this game has my votes.

Overall:  8.9

Valkyria Chronicles Game thats all about war

The “Valkyria Chronicles” at first I was too hesitant to buy it for the reason a Friend of mine told me it was like playing the game XIII(13) so I was thinking “hm... I guess this game might be not that original after all“. But I just gone and buy it anyways, to a surprise the game had a mix and mash of different game-play of “Eternal Sonata” and yes it had a almost similar look to “XIII13” as my friend told me but also it has the similar strategy game play of a command and battle of a 3rd person shoot out in the game I played in a very classic game I played in the playstation 1, “Battle Station“. But the presentation of the game as a book for you to discover and unlock skirmish missions and there is also a headquarters tab in which here you can upgrade weapons recruit unit’s the units alone has there own special abilities leveling your unit has this unique system that they done level up one character but they level up by class there are five foot soldiers and two tank commander character’s to level up with each has there special and unique abilities with them. By the way for some of the new weapons to be obtain you must kill an enemy ace for that weapons to be used, to that you can only find by killing that certain soldier in a few chapters in the game it is like a treasure hunting wherein each chapter will provide rewards based on the level of achievement and experience you gain.

For the game play on the other hand, leveling up isn’t that half bad and the controls are not that hard to use. I know because my right side of my body is spastic so I only use one hand in my everyday lifestyle. For the most part I like about this game is there mixture of water color style experience you’ll have once you start the story, it’s a unique style that they will offer to the gamers who will play this game from start to end. Now as for the story line I would say the anime and the game had made some few changes, also for me for the anime story, I more prefer the game story than the anime one for the reasons the anime isn’t that very child friendly series unlike the game story it’s a little bit soft when it comes to the drama scenes in a sense it gives you a bit of relief after every challenges you faced.

Compared with the game, the story of the anime is much more brutal, There was one scene in where they showed a guy laying dead on the ground with a few splatter of blood in his body and his eyes was open, after I saw this I felt horrible his not even an adult yet his just a child, I think he’s name was Vyse Inglebard because he was the guy who has an eye patch on his right eye. For this terms I say Valkyria Chronicles is indeed more enjoyable game and the story isn’t that half bad due to its few changes. Oh I almost forgot about mentioning about the plot and the good and bad of every skirmish game in Valkyria Chronicles, its nice that the targeting system is a good when you miss in a fifty meter radius but when you fire some guy in a very close range and didn’t killed it, I have to say that was a little funny and to the fact it was an head shot. I laugh so hard it was just way bad that I have to admit the targeting system needs a little fixing. As for the plot all of the skirmishes, expect the skirmish game to be “Retake the Empire Took Again From Us” or capture the flag game you’ll be playing. For me this isn’t half bad either but for other player out their going through to repeat every mission they start and finish earlier in the main story they'll find it rather repetitive even though the amount of experience point they give is manageable they still disagree. So I say to them, oh well. Also as for the part of if your comrades die and in three turns you didn’t ask for a medic they are dead for good. This challenge gives the gamer a sense of “I need to be careful out there and no one must die” kind of way, to that I enjoy it because this plot sticks to the story of the anime in which Welkin was careful with his men and in the end no one died, well only in his squad anyways the others weren’t so lucky. One more thing though I was a bit disappointed about the Valkyrian fight, oh how I wish the game developers made a special game scene in were the player can control Alicia and brawl it out in the battle field just like what happened in the anime series instead of a movie clip.
And further more about the final battle with Maxillian since everyone has their own like and dislike about it I’ll just leave it at that. For the up coming Valkyria Chronicles two, someone please tell the game developers to put it in also in the ps3 for me to play and do a review on it as well for I really can’t play psp it’s hard for me to control for I only use one hand for the matter.

Overall: 8.9

Final Fantasy XIII Great game with some minor old school ff series feel

Final Fantasy XIII is a RPG that has a few tweaks in it to a sense the battle system nor the adventuring is not that perfect, for one in every final fantasy game I played you can only use a certain number of characters in a certain time. So that was a little bit of a let down for the sense of realism is gone, I mean think about it for a second if you may, for example I did a certain action in the game and in the movie clip the only people that they show in the screen are the people present in your party the rest just disappeared, were did the rest of them went?? Nobody knows. I was just hoping instead of that kind of order why not use the whole people at your own disposal if you look at things in that way you can have a new kind of battle and exploration experience feel. There was this one game I played I’m not going to name it so that no one can argue about it. Anyway I get to use all of the people in my party at my disposal, yes there are also some parts they get to split up but, the thing is in the end it was a good experience and the realism at that time felt real because everyone has there own parts to play. With Final Fantasy XIII on the other hand you are only limited to a certain number of character to work with. By the way I would also like to point out in the battle system they remove the freehand movement control, so the Final Fantasy XII was a hit in the head and the battle system regressed to something similar to Final Fantasy X with the exception of a better graphic and they kept the battle waiting gauge in Final Fantasy XII which made it more difficult in every battle you face and each encounter. Anyways with that said I just want to point out finally and if you can easily adopt to this changes you can have fun after you mastered the battle system they changed and I really mean master it every class type and every role they play into. I was astonished to see the preview that one of my classmate gave to me last year with this game I saw them flying and it was fun to watch with that small clip. I watch they were using a dragon like creature all together to fly, anyway I figured wow wouldn’t it be great to travel that way in exploring the area of the game? But then, big surprise, I bought the game. Turns out that clip I saw was just part of the story in the game to proceed. The Final Fantasy XIII guys just stayed safe and let the player travel faster the old fashion way and was using “Chocobo Bird”, it was, yeah, a bit of a let down as well. As for the hardcore final fantasy fan out there they might be a bit disappointed for the reason the mini games here are limited to only one to three chapters after those chapters are over you cannot play that game anymore unless you save that chapter and don’t overwrite it, leave that chapter alone and replay it again after you saved that particular chapter. I also wanted to point out it was a shame that every character in the game didn’t have any unique or any special abilities in the exploration part of the game that could have made a major change if they do have their own special abilities or skills and also could made the game more diversely challenging and fun. Lastly and some of the RPG I ever played also have this same kind of problem with them, only some not all. After the final chapter is finish I mean literary finish and the final movie has been shown you can’t make a rerun of the story so with this game after you finish the final chapter you will be sent outside of the maze to where the final chapter started and do whatever you have missed out after the last chapter. So what I did was all of the final side quest and level up the rest of what ever I missed out. After that nothing left to do but start a new game, no rerun though meaning your starting with nothing but a default item in the start of the game. You really can’t send your finished game equipment into your new one so it was a bit of a let down also. Never the less this is one game I’m comfortable giving it a high score.

Gameplay: 8.9

The changes really made a huge impact with the game experience so that’s why it can be also a good and bad thing for its more challenging in a sense its really hard to master. One of the reason also some of the monster is just to overwhelming more harder than the final boss. There was also one monster named vampire who doesn’t even look or act like one.

Graphics : 9.5

The whole story alone was awesome hands down should be ten, but with the unrealistic enemy and has a cartoon like feel to it. It didn’t hit the spot to well enough I had to drop 0.5% to it.

Sounds &
Music : 10

No word for it, I love the way the music and sound was made my only disappointment is I can’t listen to it in a separate menu or what they call it a jukebox.

Story : 9.7

The thing I like most with the flow of this RPG is everyone has their own back or sideline story not only the people but the whole planet and people who lived there. Still in the very end, the story line has the same old classic ending to any final fantasy game “Save The World”.

Overall: 9.1


Note: This review will continue on late Dec of 2011 as soon as Final Fantasy XIII 2 is released.

Bayonetta

Bayonetta has a stunning effect and has a great graphic models and design, but the thing is its like playing “Devil May Cry” all over again especially with the boss battle its like a girl version of it. Still there is the great ecchiness theme that what makes this game stand out with other games out there. As far as the story telling goes the game has a great and realistic movie scene and for the cut scene your like reading a picture story book but the words are being spoken by the character instead of you reading it. Anyways one more bonus to this game is the online scoring system in which you can compete with friends with the score you gain for every level you finish and earn those trophy for the gold. Their also new mini games like in some of the chapter you unravel while you play. Although there is a tiny little problem with the difficulty level if your one of the guys who plays for the score and you have epilepsy I suggest not to buy this one save your money for something else, because the hard level or even the normal level can trigger your seizure so be careful when playing this game, but on the contrary to that if your just in for the story and the just to pass the time take the time and play in easy or very easy mode. In this mode its not so heavy with the player and it won’t be stressful as the higher level would be. I finished the game with the time of 52 hours that’s 2 days and 4 hours the ending was fantastic and funny. The best part of this game is you can preset your game play, this means all of your equipment can be carried out on your new chapter that you are about to play or you can select any chapter you want to play in the main menu. Lastly as for the sound you can expect a gangster theme all the way to the end and for the music its like a classical jazz and jam which makes the game come to place.

Gameplay: 8.6
Graphics: 9.3

Atelier Rorona A JRPG that will make you laugh ...

The game play is very simply and nothing fancy or anything really it will make you take some pressure on your part from the assignment and quest that the game entails but to the end if succeeds its rewarding for most part. As the game progresses new characters can join the fray on your job hunting quest. All in it its quite entertaining giving the fact of the ridiculously cartoony fights even though you win nor lose... well not much in losing because you’ll start again from when you last saved the game. For the other elements of this JRPG everything is fine the scenery is well done and the game play is simply and easy to use, the only thing I was disappointed in is the main character's image Rorona look's like a combined image that some other RPG I used to play I won't say the title of the game though because I really don't need to.


Anyway all in all this is a JRPG you wanna try just for the fun game play of it in a the stressful day in school or at work how ever old you are that is to say.

Game play: Its so easy to play and has a ridiculously comical moment for every battle. 7.8

Graphic: As for the graphics they made full use of the blue ray of the PS3 so thumbs up to all no question asked. 8.9

Sound/Music: The sound effect what makes the game has its funny moments for some of the sound is what you can really only hear in a cartoon. As on the other hand the music was a bit of a letdown for some don't really match the moments in in the movie scene, the time and place the music was a bit off. 6.4

Lasting Appeal: For the least part of it all you'll be enjoying item collecting for the reason you'll need it later on, and the fun of it really is collecting and figuring out how much you need for all is the enjoyment of it because your an alchemist and that's what your jobs is to collect and create simply as that. Also the easy monster battle on the sideline what makes it fun hehe. 8.0

Overall: 8.4

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood The Game of Patient...

This game is pretty good in a sense it has tons of new feature that was added and for this game you can command brigade of assassin’s for when they are called. For the most part I was hoping they would get the time to modify the controller setting, because for the game the controller is hard to use you’ll need some practice to get used to as for me since I only use one hand, when I play my finger sometimes hurt or sore for the way the controller is set. To think by now they will let the player set the control’s to where they are comfortable with. So anyway when I got to play this game it was like playing the AC2 with some new command added, it was risky not to change anything but with the new commands and gadget involve it still works. I was in high hopes for them to make some changes in the map marker not to add only one marker in the map, but add multiple markers because since the map is way too big, I get to set the marker again and again after I get to that destination it was really annoying to go back and forth to the map screen. As the multiplayer goes I was hoping that I get to do the brotherhood assassin mission with a friend, but to a fact that most of the game for multiplayer is just plain all out rumble in time you might get bored. I think the only thing I enjoy doing in the multiplayer is the advance assassination, but for the most part I’m also getting tired of doing that mission as well and as I said for the way the control’s is set it hard to get round about. One more thing was the horse is set it’s a bit difficult to get by in tight area’s but thank god it’s easier when its open areas.

Graphics - As for this the design and graphics of the game is still at its fullest. 9.0

Music / Sound - For the most part everything is close to perfect. Good work on this one as well. 8.9

Lasting Appeal – Because of the added multiplayer you may enjoy this for a while, but beyond that there’s nothing new to added for the game. 8.5

Story – It’s a well based story and a long one, so all and all you’ll be engrossed in the adventure of the assassin Ezio Auditore. 8.9

Gameplay – The Controllers is hard for some of the acrobatic moves that you need to perform to escape the pursuers that are after you. But for all and all it’s just hard to use. 7.9

Overall: 8.3

The Sims 3 World Adventure Basic / Starters Guide

This is a guide on how to get started with the game "The Sims 3" with its three expansion packs. I'm starting off with The Sims 3 World Adventure. As the title states you go places in this game through 3 different countries:  China, France and Egypt. The way it works is that each quest is started by  clicking the mail box (as shown in the picture below).  The mail box will disclose tasks requested by local people of those 3 countries. By completing the request you can earn "visa points" and the more points you have the more days you can stay. The maximum days of stay is around 12 or 15 days Sims time.
The 2nd part of this expansion is the tomb exploration. At this stage you will encounter mummies, traps and puzzles. One tip that I can share is that you need martial arts skills in order to defeat a mummy. Anyway, for more details on this skill I'll send a link at the bottom of the page. The best place to learn martial art is in China. You may ask, "Why not just use the code: ctrl shift c testingcheatsenabled and  the code: ctrl shift c debug and buy the equipment from home?" No, don't use that you should buy it in China because if you buy it from home and practice there you will miss out the opportunity to meet new people, have some quest completed in China and raise your "Visa Points" which is very important. My point is if you go to China first you can kill 3 birds with one stone. When you arrive in China go and take a request quest from the town mailbox "Base Camp". This first quest is to retrieve a relic from a tomb which is like a tutorial for future tomb quests that you will encounter in the game. Part of the game is a movie making in game which you do on your own time.You can edit your movies on the Sims3 website after you uploaded it in the launcher.
I'm taking snap shots of the tomb's interior in order to familiarize yourself with the layout.  Inside the tomb pop up windows will explain the details of the basic tomb quest. This quest will assist you in future tomb explorations in the game. But before you venture inside the tomb ascertain that all your "Sims needs" are fully charged  so as not to encounter any problems. Anyway, this is just one of the basic tomb quests and it will only last for a few minutes of Sims time.




After exploring the tomb and finally finding the relic head back to the one who requested the quest and find another quest about the dragon tomb.

The picture above shows the snap shot of what the end of the quest for the dragon tomb looks like. In order to enter into the next room you will need a dragon key. The request you have just completed will deplete your energy level so you have three choices:  (a) go back to your client and report in; (b) sleep in a tent, if ever you bought one in the shop, and explore the south part of the dragon tomb the next morning; or (c) just go straight to bed in your Base Camp and the next day train your martial art skill, since you will need this skill in fighting the mummies in Egypt later on in the game. Finding the dragon key is a whole new quest which is a request of the local people in France. This guide for The Sims 3 World Adventure is now complete.
