Video Game Review: Toukiden

visual

Plot:

The setting is Nakatsu Kuni which has been protected since ancient times by “Slayers”. These warriors have banded together to purge demons and other forces of darkness for one thousand years, thus earning their title as “demon slayers”.

Eight years before the main story, time and the heavens distorted and the underworld emerged into the land of man. A great demon rose from its gap and plunged the land into an age of calamity. The Slayers fought tooth and nail against the demon and its army for seven grueling days; they barely succeeded in their mission to save humanity. The great conflict was later called the “Awakening”, and the Slayers whom fought in it were appointed to help restore the land’s political realm.

The protagonist is a part of the new wave of Slayers who rise to deal with the land’s never-ending demonic forces. They reside at Utakata Village, one of the last lines of defense in the war between demons and humanity.

Review:

Toukiden is one of the most entertaining games I’ve ever played. I love the setting and music of the game. The game has 6 maps that you will unlock during your missions. The story of the game last up to 5 chapters. After chapter 5 you’ll finish the story of the game but there are still a lot of mission that you will have to complete along with quests and relationship status. There are 6 NPC that you can take with you during missions they will fight along your side. You will also form bonds with all 12 NPCs. My favorite is Nagi, she’s the most helpful during boss(Large Oni) battles.

The game also has a verity of weapons that you can choose from and different armors. You get to customize your own character of course. The game also has a Online co-op and single mood. The online missions are different from the missions that you play in the offline mood. Of course there is also the Ad hoc mood.

Most importantly the game is very fun and a bit challenging if you don’t have the right team. The story of the game is actually deep I didn’t expect that. It took me 20hr to finish the game and I was taking my time. The game wont bore you that was the most important part for me. Though compared to Fire Emblem: Awaking, Toukiden is short.

Rate: 4.5/5

Review:

I picked up this game after finishing the demo. I heard about the game through [Nintendo Direct] and decided to try it. Once I started playing the demo I couldn’t story until it was done. I was hooked. Fire Emblem: Awakening is a strategy game with an amazing plot and amazing graphics. The game has so many features my favorite is the support feature. When two players are standing next to one another they can protect each other from enemies. you can play the game in two modes casual or classic mode. The classic mode is a total pain but the casual mode is pretty awesome. If you S supported a character from the opposite sex, you unlock a stage and find your child that came back from the future. The game is absolutely amazing there is so much content in the game and endless possibilities. I totally recommend it.

Rate: 5/5

Review:

After playing Liberation Maiden and Attack of the Friday Monsters! Tokyo Tale, I’m officially a Level-5 Fan. Attack of the Friday Monsters! Tokyo Tale is a beautiful game, the graphics is really good. The game is very enjoyable, you get to discover the town and collect cards to play with other characters. The story is pretty awesome, it goes something like episodes where you have to do a task each time to finish a certain episode. It’s crazy fun! Also, love the fact that when you win against another player in the card game, you get to cast a spell on them. I must say that the spell is the cutest thing ever!!! Also, as a bonus after you finish the main plot of the game, you can customize the spell to your liking. I mean how cool is that? I swear playing this game made me feel 10 years younger. XD
This game is a must try. It’s different than anything you’ve ever played. So, it’s totally worth it.

Game Review: Liberation Maiden

20130709-185610.jpg

Plot:

Liberation Maiden is a full-scale 3D sci-fi shooter created by critically acclaimed developer Goichi Suda. An invading country is stealing all of Japan’s energy. The player controls Shoko Ōzora (voiced by Kana Hanazawa), a high school girl who became President of Japan after her father’s assassination, as she enters the mech Kamui to fight back. It features animated cutscenes created by Studio BONES and the main theme song, “Day of Liberation” performed by Marina.

General Information:

Genre: Shooter, Action
Developer: Grasshopper Manufacture
Publisher: Level 5
Designer: Goichi Suda
Release Date: 3DS October 25, 2012, iOS March 7, 2013
Platform: Nintendo 3DS, iOS
ESRB: T
Website: Click Here

Review:

The other day I bought a Nintendo gift card, redeemed the code and logged in Nintendo eShop. That’s when I saw this title “Liberation Maiden” and check out the trailer. I was very impressed with the animation so I bought the game. The reason why I’m telling you this story is because, I never heard about this title before that day. The game was cheap which surprised me. The quality of this game is pretty high, I mean as I started the first stage I had to go back and check the game price. It’s worth every dollar.
The graphics and animation were awesome. The mecha you pilot is incredible. I’ve never played a better pilot/Mecha/shooting game in my life. I might be exaggerating there, but for those that are familiar with good flight/shooter games, it’s as good as the Dreamcast games from that genre. I was a bit disappointed that the language was only English. I would’ve loved to hear the story in Japanese.
I almost forgot to mention the game play. The game is played by the touch screen and moving pad on 3DS. The game is short, it’s pretty easy to beat. Though there was this one stage that I struggled in, because I couldn’t find the enemy :P but once I did it was easy to finish. I strongly recommend this game. If you don’t have a 3DS, it’s now available in Apple App Store. The game is incredibly fun, and so refreshing. It has amazing graphic and the game play feels old school which is the best! It’s a must get.

Rate: 4/5

P.S. For those that already played the game I’m happy to tell you that there is a sequel visual novel of the game titled Liberation Maiden: SIN and it will be released for ps3.
