Review: The Guided Fate Paradox photo
Review: The Guided Fate Paradox
by Wesley Ruscher

One of the greatest things about video games is the opportunity they afford us to take on roles we'd normally never have the chance to do. For example, in The Guided Fate Paradox, the latest from the team that brought us the Disgaea: Hour of Darkness -- that job is to become a God.

While playing the God, or a god, is not new to the universe of gaming (Populous, Black & White, and ActRaiser to name a few) the way it is implemented by Nippon Ichi Software leads to quite the unusual set of circumstances and one hell of a good time.

Review: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness photo
Review: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
by Chris Carter

I've been playing tactical games since the NES, but there was something about the Disgaea franchise that really resonates with me. Offering up a ridiculous level of customization and refinement, Disgaea sat upon a pedestal in the strategy pantheon, with hardly any competition in terms of how hardcore the experience was.

But 10 years later, there are a lot of other games out there able to replicate that feeling, and the Disgaea franchise isn't quite as reverential as it once was. It's a good thing then that Disgaea D2 hearkens back to what made the original so great.
