Okay, so we've got the unlikely, underage hero who's been chosen by a talking sword to save the world. Your character, the half knight, half matter-manipulating alchemist Felt, is then off to another realm that's oppressed by a corrupt empire, and gets caught up in a growing rebellion. A larger plan is revealed, and Felt's group of fellow travelers turns out to be more important than it seems.
Hmm ... sounds a lot like every traditional, turn-based RPG we've ever played. From its "gotta save
Two years ago, the release of the first Atelier Iris release was a breath of fresh air, introducing players to an airy RPG romp and an unfamiliar game style. A year after that, we got Atelier Iris 2, and a year after that, we get Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm. The returns are diminishing. While Atelier Iris 3 has some interesting gameplay systems, they're hardly worth putting up with the rest of the game
The Atelier series has flourished with two games highlighting two of the three heroines of the games. With the final chapter of this series arc, Atelier Meruru brings the alchemic action to a close. But does it deliver a satisfying ending?

Attack on Pearl Harbor isnt about simulating a famous battle, but about effortlessly flying super-zippy airplanes and shooting other ones out of the sky. Its pure arcade, with barely a dial to worry about.
You get about 40 missions, playing sometimes as the Japanese and sometimes as the US, with a variety of planes to choose from depending on the mission type. But if youre sitting up excited to learn which types, settle back down. Yes, you can fly an A6M1 Zero or a BSN1 Kate, but the
Attention all dirt-junkies: the wait is over. Sony and Climax have finally unleashed the latest game in their ATV series, ATV Offroad Fury 4, and while the series seems to be slowly exhausting itself (seriously, how many times can you milk such a concept?) this newest entry into the series provides enough content to please diehards and newbies alike.
In addition to loading the game with several gameplay options, such as single event races, championship races, and a new career mode, the dirt
This is the new Peggle. Not that this mellifluous blend of Wipeout, Tetris and Guitar Hero is anything like PopCap’s pachinko masterpiece, but rather that it fulfils the same purpose: a bottomless tub of instant gaming snack, ideal for when you’re waiting for a spot on that Team Fortress 2 server to open up, or trying to break through a hangover, or to play one-handed while enduring a phone call with tedious relatives.

How do you take control of a scorched planet that's been infected with an alien, mutating virus, battle scarred by years of war between the "pure" humans, their mutated cousins, and a race of cyborg hybrid worker drones?
