ETERNAL SONATA

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

On his deathbed, the famous composer, Chopin, drifts between this life and the next. In his final hours, he experiences a fantastical dream where he encounters a young girl facing a terrible destiny and the boy who will fight to save her. On the edge between dreams and reality, Chopin discovers the light that shines in all of us. Are you up for this enduring tale of good and evil, love and betrayal?

Eternal Sonata follows many typical roleplaying conventions with the player controlling a party of up to twelve characters set on a journey to explore the world, talking with its inhabitants, buy and sell equipment at shops, and encounter terrrifying beasts. 

The main combat system is turn-based, using only 3 characters within the party, but also incorporates elements of an action game. Each character's turn is preceded by "Tactical Time", where players will choose the character's course of action is the battle. Once the player initiates an action the clock starts and a limited amount of time is given to move the character, attack the enemy, and use recovery skills or items.

9 HOURS, 9 PEOPLE, 9 DOORS

NintendoDS™ [Visual Novel]

Junpei, a normal college student, suddenly finds himself involved in a deadly conspiracy he could never have imagined. He wakes aboard an old cruise liner. Dazed and confused, he stumbles around the room he finds himself in, trying desperately to remember how he got there.

999 is broken down into two different types of gameplay: the "Escape" sequences where the player must participate and solve an escape-the-room puzzle to advance. Escape sequences involve investigating the current room and finding or picking up tools or items, which are then used to manipulate other objects in the room or discover keys or combinations used to open locked doors. The second type of gameplay is the "Novel Part" where the player will take in the breathtaking story through the game's narrative and dialogue in cutscenes. 

As Junpei’s memory returns, his mind is filled with the image of a mysterious figure in a gas mask, and their haunting words: “You are going to participate in a game. The Nonary Game. It is a game…where you will put your life on the line.”

Nintendo3DS™ [RPG]

For the first time ever in the Etrian Odyssey history, we see a remake; from the ground up, this is the first game revamped for a modern audience. Featuring a focus on character developement and story, a selection in difficulty, voice acting, remixed music and all the Etrian Odyssey gameplay of yore with a new Grimoire system, The Millennium Girl is an amazing entry into the franchise that every fan should play. 

Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is even more of a unique entry to the series in that it contains two modes, Classic and Story. Classic mode is what you would expect from past games in the sereis, with custom characters and maps.

The new Story mode takes on the RPG elements, with an expansive story, preset characters, cutscenes and voice acting, but keeping true to the game you will still have to draw your own dungeon maps, just like in Classic Mode.

NBA 2K14

PlayStation®4 [Sports]

Developed by Visual Concepts 2K14 has made the game smarter, faster, and overall a better experience for videogame nerd-ballers everywhere.

Let's get to the game-play, this is what makes or breaks sports games - and NBA2K14 is no exception to this rule. You can make the game as pretty as you want but if playing it is no fun, what is the point?

Luckily tons of game-play features have been rolled out, the biggest feature in our eyes is the Pro-Stick. Many fans will recognize this mechanic as the 2.0 polished edition of 2K13's 'control stick' (R3). The long and the short of this function is player ball control - this means slick player movements. You can think of the Pro-Stick as a sort of combo-stick, or a modifier. Lay-ups, dunks, jump shots, shielding the ball - the depth of the Pro-Stick is all in all very impressive. We think it is the perfect addition for a few reasons: newcomers will experience an entry-level of control much higher than before, veterans of the franchise will have something to master, and I love modifiers. Okay, so the last one is personal.

The best defense is said to be a good offense, but NBA2K14 decided to say screw it and make sick defense changes anyway. Do you hear that sound? That is all the 2K13 players cheering.
