About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Blood Will Tell (Dororo) is a modern day action epic adapted from the classic manga by Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy). Like the original manga the game follows the adventures of Hyakkimaru, a samurai haunted by a shocking secret, who is on a quest to uncover his past and regain his humanity. As a newborn baby he was robbed of every limb, organ and even his flesh and had his humanity replaced with a myriad of ways to deal out death.

Players can choose to battle with various weapons such as blades embedded inside Hyakkimaru’s arms, a bazooka hidden inside his leg, or weapons that are found during the course of the adventure. At every step of the way Hyakkimaru’s friend Dororo will be there to help you, guide you, and fight alongside Hyakkimaru as you explore and unravel the mystery of his past. “Dororo” delivers the ultimate Samurai fighting experience with intense 3D action from one of Japan’s most famous storytellers. Only through cooperation, exploration and extreme violence will Hyakkimaru ever be able to live a normal life. Until that time you must learn to live life as the ultimate concealed weapon.
