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.

Taking place five years after the events of the last "Arc" adventure, "Arc The Lad: End of Darkness" follows young hunter Edda on a remarkable journey to save the world from the danger that threatens nature and civilization. The first action-based game in the series, "End of Darkness" lets the player control up to 24 unlockable characters from the series, performing combos, casting spells and utilizing artifacts on the fly. The spoils of battle include weapon and armor cards, which can be grouped together to impart new skills and abilities. Players can also take the adventure online for the first time, battling competitively with up to seven other players in Match mode, or teaming up with three others from around the world to proceed through missions and defeat powerful enemies and collect cards for items such as rare equipment.
