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.


'Bujingai: Swordmasters' (PS2) - Screens

In a series of terrible events, Rei Jenron's wife is killed by demons, and when he uses a forbidden dark power to avenge her, he then turns into a Demon Master himself. The player takes on the role of spell-casting, gravity-defying warrior, Lau Wong. Lau must battle his way through an army of fiends to try and rescue his fellow warrior or face him in hat could be his last fight. Lau is able to fight multiple enemies while running, gliding, floating, and running on walls. To make the action even more authentic, all of the characters in Bujingai: Swordmasters have fluid motion capture movements that give them just as much personality as Lau.
