Fairy Fencer F Review

Fairy Fencer F Review

Every once in a blue moon, a JRPG comes along and vacuums up my time like a black hole. Games like Final Fantasy X, Persona 4 Golden, and Chrono Trigger have all succeeded in this venture, some even doing so on multiple occasions. Sadly, Fairy Fencer F for the PlayStation 3 made it very difficult for me to want to put time into it.

Tales of Xillia 2 Video Review

Tales of Xillia 2 Video Review

Hi everybody, this is Anthony Ta from the Gamer Access, and this is the Tales of Xillia 2 video review. Things can change a lot in one year. Other things hardly change at all. In the video gaming industry, having a “fully-fledged” sequel come out only a year after its predecessor is an increasingly common, if worrying, trend. Here, we have Tales of Xillia 2, the direct sequel to Tales of Xillia that was released last year. Is it a new sequel as we understand the term, or just a nudge? The answer finds itself in the awkward middle.

Dance Central Spotlight Review

Dance Central Spotlight Review

Dance Central when it launched in 2010 was the perfect game to show off the original Kinect. It was fun, perfect for parties, and unlike most early Kinect games it actually worked. Harmonix would go on to make two more, improving the over experience along the way; making the best dancing game on the market. Well the new Dance Central is here, as a ten dollar downloadable game on Xbox One. What have the improvements in technology done for Dance Central?

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition Review

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition Review

Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is an amazing game. From the opening minutes to the final showdown, the game is fun, frantic, and visually engaging. Diablo 3 has you choose a hero from one of the six classes available. They are Barbarian, Witch Doctor, Wizard, Monk, Demon Hunter, and the new class, Crusader. Following this, your story begins and you begin your quest to destroy all evil and anything that might look at you the wrong way.

Madden NFL 15 Review

Madden NFL 15 Review

With another year comes another Madden, but what is special about Madden 15? It is the first Madden made specifically for the Xbox One and PS4. So the question is does all this new tech lead to an improved football sim or another disappointing Madden season?

ACI-Moondog Signature Series Gold - Summer '14 Refresh Review

60 Minute Access: Devil May Cry Part 4

Earlier this year ACI-MoonDog Computers released its Signature Series Ultimate Gaming PC. While an absolute monster of a machine when it came to gaming performance and benchmarks, the primary issue with the Signature Series Gold Edition was its use beyond games. So ACI-MoonDog Computers is here with its first refresh. The question is, does fixing these problems create new ones? Or does this take us to a new level of Ultimate Gaming? When one settles for nothing but the best, you can push the limits and achieve new greatness. This greatness has been achieved!

Battle Princess of Arcadias Review

Battle Princess of Arcadias Review

Battle Princess of Arcadias is a great game. From the colorful sceenic backdrops, to the addictive combat, there's a lot to like about this side scroller RPG. You'll play as Lady Plume who, as the Battle Princess, is sworn to protect her kingdom from any and all enemies. You'll have the help of many other characters and with the rise of an ancient evil on the horizon, you'll need all the help you can get. As far as the story goes, that's actually almost as deep as it gets. While the story isn't fantastic, it's absolutely a long-shot from terrible. Luckily, the game's anime style, silly characters, and Japanese dialogue was enough to keep me interested. Just about every anime stereotype is present in Battle Princess. You've got the clueless and innocent girl, the silent badass, the womanizer, and the cocky, barbaric warrior. The characters are fun and silly, but easily forgettable following the completion of the game. The game is has fully voiced dialogue which I enjoyed greatly. Be prepared though! The voiceovers are completely in Japanese with no option to change it to English, so you'll definitely have to be prepared to read a lot. Following the many main story missions and few side missions will bring to beautifully drawn locales from a freezing tundra, to a scorching volcano. Each location is beautiful and colorful, which is great because you'll be visiting them very often.

Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection Review

Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection Review

The Playstation Vita is a great handheld with great games. Unfortunately, Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection is not one of them. The anime style and RPG-like elements can be fun, but the lack of gameplay, creepy dialogue, and concert mode had me wanting to put this game down shortly after picking it up.

ACI-Moondog Signature Series Gold Level Desktop Review

ACI-Moondog Signature Series Gold Level Desktop Review

In recent years it seems PC gaming just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The most popular games Call of Duty, Battlefield, League of Legends, Dota 2, Dark Souls 2 all look, play, and feel better on PC, or are PC exclusives. This along with Steam and GeForce Experience making maintenance easier, it's not really a surprise this is happening. That said there are still some major hurdles stopping a lot of people from PC gaming. Most big manufacturers don't have a gaming brand, or their gaming brand is junk. Then you have Boutique brands such as Alienware, Origin, Razer, and Republic of Gamers by ASUS. Powerful PCs, but they save money where you might not look, and they mark the price up basically for aesthetics. Then there is building your own, but for many it can be too complicated and time consuming. Now, ACI-Moondog Computers is trying to compete is this very competitive, but lacking market. The question is how does their Signature Series Gaming Desktop stack up?
