Well it comes as no surprise that I’ve been working with a great group of friends to create a podcast in the form of The Bit Effect. It’s been a great ride for the last 3 or 4 months so far but the adventures continue with great opportunities for soon to come side projects. Enough of the blether, find us here:
For every game collection there’s always one that got away. In my case that would be Shining Force 3. The pictured box art is not actually from the version I’ve finally indulged in to add to my collection (possibly down to its stratospheric price) but regardless I am a sucker for its effortless style which evolves directly from Shining in(/and) the darkness.
Very recently available to me once more after some unwise decisions of putting older systems to rest Guardian Heroes is a stunning game on all levels with some iconic art as featured here. As with my previous picks there’s a running theme of the game itself matching this level of artistic flair. Play it and then play it some more. This is the perfect quick play after work game. Treat yourself!
Odin Sphere is one of those title’s I’ve just fallen in love with lately, with its polish shining through I took the gamble on the storybook edition of the game and can’t say I’ve been disappointed. The art of this game stands out by a mile in illustration and in play so it was never going to hurt that this edition of the game came with an art book. Many thanks to that special family member that made this purchase possible.
Street Fighter has always been a series that excels in game play, music and art but when times are rough and the latest game fell foul of networking issues, content issues and potentially a lack of selectable characters this brilliant piece of art came forward to squash any fears. As with all titles Capcom’s artists are here to stay and I love this piece.
I had the chance to play this demo earlier today and it’s looking to be shaping up to be an addictive little time waster. Simple but convincingly Dragon Quest embellished to get a tentative thumbs up from me.
Do you like games and do you think you can guess which ones these are? Give it a try.
A review of this game is something I’d love to do once I’ve completed it. Easily being my most anticipated game of 2016 and from what I’ve managed to play so far, it delivers!
