The sky pirate, Balthier
This man knows what he wants and knows how to get it - by stealing it out from under the nose of whoever's got it. He sees himself as Ivalice's answer to Robin Hood (not that he'd know who that is). Always teamed up with his bunny-eared Viera sidekick Fran, he roams the skies searching for treasure - and sexy ladies he can find his way with. He gets sucked into the adventure when he runs into Vaan, the game's lead character and sky pirate
Well, of course you wanted to go to Tokyo Game Show - who wouldn't? But you didn't. Maybe sushi makes you retch, maybe an expensive plane ride and week-long jetlag didn't sound cool, maybe you were afraid you wouldn't be allowed back into the US all because of that mishap with the senator's daughter and that video. Whatever.
The point is, GamesRadar is here for you. Or, rather, we're over there for you. So park yourself right where you are and live secure in the knowledge that we'll tell you
They say flattery will get you everywhere, and that imitation is the sincerest form of such behavior. But is there a limit to how much you can ape something before it crosses the line of "homage" into "ripoff?" Well, when the result is a game as life-changing as Okami, we're content to let it take everything that makes The Legend of Zelda a masterpiece and copy it any day of the week.
Spending no more than a few hours with Okami will reveal how much it plays like a new Zelda game. You've got a
Unless your parents homeschooled you, you already know the drill. Take a bunch of kids and throw 'em into a school. What happens? They break into cliques. The different social groups each have their rock-solid membership... and their own bizarre
No school would be complete without at least one bully, and Bullworth Academy is well stocked. You might even say it's over-stocked, loaded with thick-headed goons who's only purpose in life is to harass everyone else until they graduate and suddenly realize how shallow and empty their life really is. Not that we have any personal issues
Like many tough schools, Bullworth Academy places a high value on the achievements of its sports teams. At Bullworth, pretty much anybody who secures a place on one of those teams becomes a jock overnight. There's something infectious about the way they talk to each other and walk around the school as though they're in charge. Once you're accepted by them, it's hard to go
Bullworth Academy is home to a wide range of children from a mixture of social backgrounds. Most of the pupils reside in the dorms. However, if your parents can prove their wealth, you may be granted admission to Harrington House. The most popular way of ensuring your place in those hallowed halls is a large cash
The greasers are far too cool for school... or so they think. Were it not for the fact that they love hanging out at the school's auto shop - and the fact that their mothers would get upset - they probably wouldn't bother turning up at
Every school has its nerds, right? Bullworth Academy is far from an exception. You know the stereotype - or you will after checking out our exclusive movie. They love to study and spend the majority of their time trying to stay out of trouble with the jocks and
Of all the RPGs coming out this fall, .hack//G.U. is one of the most original.
