Storm's Adventures: Storm is turning Japanese


3:00 PM on 10.01.2010



God of War gave me hack and slash fever. I guess I could have caught worse things from Kratos, that dirty sailor. Anyway, I sought to cure it by heading over to eBay and grabbing a Japanese developed and an American developed game full of slashing and hacking. The Japanese candidate was, of course, Bayonetta, and the American candidate...never arrived. So, sadly, Devil May Cry 4 had to takes its place.

Every since seeing Bayonetta behind Sega's closed doors at E3 2009, while having the honor of hanging out with the legendary Jim Sterling, I knew it was a game I had to include in an adventure and make non-stop, unoriginal sex jokes all the while. Seriously, I think I have a crush on Bayonetta. She is now in league with Rebecca Chambers and Princess Peach to me. What's that you say? I have to talk about the gameplay? Well, it's...good.

Devil May Cry 4 was sort of an impulse buy. GameCrazy was closing all of it's stores and liquidating inventory. Since the local GameCrazy had no more copies of Halo 3: ODST, I had to find some other deal. I saw Devil May Cry 4, and said to myself, "Sure, I'll introduce myself to the series with this one." That was over a year ago. Pairing it in an adventure with Bayonetta kind of makes sense. But now I wish that other "Dante" game had come through the mail because Devil May Cry 4 should have stayed on the shelf. Watch the video for details.

Also, DAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Unsung Heroes: Bad Company

Way back in 2009, Charlie Brooker’s Gameswipe had this cutting observation about the po-faced nature of military shooters. During a particularly grim scene in Call of Duty: World at War, Brooker flambés several s...more
