Hello there folks. I've been a busy bee and for your reading pleasure I've put up 3 reviews that I wrote recently. Please have a read and see what you think (and listening to the theme of Legend of Zelda by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra right now makes it so much more adventurous!)
Capcom can be credited as a company that have created and established genres in gaming since the company's inception. Street Fighter and Resident Evil are notorious examples and although no less important, Devil May Cry 4 (hereafter DMC4) is the latest installment in the long established franchise that was the originator of another genre; that of combo-based flashy action adventure (or something along those lines).
The demo for Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 (hereafter RGG3) was made available on the Japanese PSN approximately a month before the game's release in February earlier this year. The demo put you in the scenario of controlling the main character named Kazuma Kiryu, a member of the Tojo clan of yakuza who is a pretty decent guy to say he is a member of an organised crime family. He has returned from the orphanage he runs in Okinawa due to troubles stirring in Kamuro-cho (based on the real district of Kabuki-cho.)
The most recent outing from Namco Bandai's martial arts fighting's camp is the updated version of Tekken 5 which was originally released in the arcades and on the PS2, then as Tekken 5: DR on the PSP. Namco then decided it was a good idea to re-release the aforementioned game on the PS3 as a downloadable title, updated accordingly for Sony's next-gen system. Was it worth Namco's efforts and the playing time? Read on to find out.
