Dante and Vergil – The Rivalry That Would Define Rivalries

 

Devil May Cry is a franchise that has invented and defined the spectacle Fighter/Hack’n’Slash/Technical Fighter, whatever you may call it. DMC1 was at the time of its release a very inventive and experimental but also fun game. The second game, DMC2, was absolutely terrible.

One of the most influential aspects, was the rivalry between the two characters Dante and Vergil, the Sons of Sparda.

Sengoku Rance Doesn’t Appreciate Learning Progress

Sengoku Rance, A Turn-Based Grand Strategy Game. People come for the Hentai, but stay for everything else. At least that is my experience when going through the game.

I now proudly present a concept of a formula for Beat’em’Ups which I call “The 3 Pillars of Combat”.

Some Payday 2 Impressions

 

About one week ago, I spotted a game, two to be exact, in my library. Payday 1 and 2,¬† I heard good things about both games, but only with the warning that you should always play this game with at least one friend, otherwise the experience won’t be that great.

So I decided to check the game out with a friend of mine so and sum up my experience over the last days with the game. Keep in mind, this neither a review or an analysis, just an impression.
