PS2 Preview - 'Arc the Lad: End of Darkness'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2005

Genre: RPG
Publisher: Namco
Developer: Cattle Call
Release Date: June 7, 2005

When I was first offered the chance to take a look at the new Arc the Lad game, back before I had seen or even heard anything about it, I jumped at the opportunity, having been a fairly big fan of the series. My excitement dwindled a bit as I played, though, and I have to ask, what have they done to my series? Toss in a collectible card aspect that's ever-so-popular lately, and scrap the traditional strategic turn-based battles, and you'll have an idea of what

You enter the reality of the year 223 since Great Cataclysm. The world we knew was erased as the result of a mysterious accident.

PS2 Preview - 'Soul Calibur III'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2005

Genre: Fighting
Publisher: Namco
Developer: Namco
Release Date: TBA

"Transcending history and the world, a tale of swords and souls, eternally retold … Soul Calibur 3!" Hearing those words almost brought me to squeal with glee in the midst of the thousands of people brought together by the twin loves of gaming and profit at this year's E3. I'll admit it, playing SC3 was possibly my greatest motivation for attending this year's show, and I, for one, am not disappointed.

By way of introduction, I'll say that my handle

PC Preview - 'Star Wars: Empire at War'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2005

Genre: Strategy
Publisher: LucasArts
Developer: Petroglyph
Release Date: TBA
