Gaming was Dan's first passion in life. He learned to read at the age of 3, just to better understand his favorite NES titles (Crystalis, anyone?) back in 1993. No matter how busy his life gets, he always manages to find time to indulge in his passion. He's spent a great deal of time in just about every genre, major title, PC, console, and handheld, in one form or another, over a lifetime. While his first love will always be RPGs and MMORPGs, he's just as comfortable in any other genre. When not working or writing, Dan can be found streaming on Twitch at "OmegabladeX."
All in all, I am Setsuna will be a treat for any JRPG lover in today’s market, and is absolutely worth picking up even at the $40 price point. Great mechanics, fantastic artwork, and music that creates atmosphere rivaling even the great John Williams are all wrapped up in one nice and neat package.
It really is that good ladies and gentlemen. The hype is mostly real, and I’m sure this one will go down in the books as a piece of greatness from Bethesda. Honestly, it truly is. Now, stop reading this review, and go buy it. Seriously, go. Get your wallet out, and go to Steam, and pick the bloody game up, now! Or go to GameStop, BestBuy, Amazon, whatever. I don’t care where, just go get it and start playing it.
Almost perfect, but not quite there. I’m sure I’ll be spending a lot of time in Lotheric, as will many folks.
All in all, I cannot stress how much I feel like everyone should pick up and play Disgaea, as long as they don't absolutely hate JRPGs or strategy RPGs. The entire series is damn good, and Nippon Ichi has given us the opportunity to experience this in a fresh way on our glorious PCs.
Is Tom Clancy’s The Division worth playing? Absolutely. As someone who finds themselves somewhere in between collector and completionist, I enjoyed the balance achieved between things to do/find on the world map that were aside the main story or progression path. I’d find myself going through an area, completing everything in that zone in accordance with my level, but never feeling overwhelmed.
