Luminous Arc import review

February 26, 2007

“When I first heard about Luminous Arc, I was immediately interested in learning more about the game prior to its release mostly because it was an SRPG; and as some who own a DS and are into RPGs may know, the DS is pretty thin when it comes to SRPGs. Advance Wars was the last SRPG to grace the Nintendo DS while the rest of the DS RPGs were pretty much action RPGs. My interest in Luminous Arc reached an all new height when I learned that Yasunori Mitsuda, the brilliant and talented video game music composer who blew many RPG fans away with his score to Chrono Trigger, was behind the game’s soundtrack. To my surprise, after having an extensive amount of time with the game itself, I’m glad to say the wait and interest I had in this game was well worth the warm and awesome reception it returned to me in the end.”

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (VC) review

February 26, 2007

“Played on the Wii through the Virtual Console, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is just as impressive and timeless a design as ever. As a download, it makes some sacrifices in content beyond what its physical media releases have offered. But, at the same time, it offers new positives to counterbalance those negatives.”

Don’t worry, the only negative is that Rumble isn’t supported, as is the case with all other Virtual Console titles. This really only hinders gameplay in two places: Fishing and the Stone of Agony. But, I’d better stop talking so you’ll still have something to read once you get to the actual review!
