Tokyo Mirage Sessions was originally announced as Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. That gave people a lot of ideas concerning what kind of game it would be. Would it be a strategy RPG? Would it be a traditional JRPG where you control Chrom, Ike and Marth?
Well, the game we got was neither of those things. Don’t worry though, what we did get is an addictive JRPG in the vein of Atlus’ Persona games. You balance trawling through dungeons for loot and working for a talent agency in Tokyo Mirage Sessions and exploring the life of a JPOP star who casts spells is pretty refreshing.
Battles move along at a super addictive and rewarding pace.
The Fire Emblem elements come into play mostly as style choices, but the game flips the script to make it something special. The game is pretty lighthearted as well. While it does have its dark moments, there is a tongue in cheek sense of humor that keeps things from getting too heavy.
You learn new abilities by dapping up your mirages. Wuddup Chrom!

Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii U is a gigantic JRPG that’s gonna take days of your life from you if you choose to fully commit. The first Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii was an excellent breath of fresh air and this game aims to succeed it in every way.
The environments are impressive and full of breath taking visuals and exhilarating combat. Monolithsoft has jammed an impressive amount of content onto the Wii U game disk. Just when you think you’ve found the coolest gear, you’ll stumble across a piece of armor so cool that you just HAVE to complete the set. The grind is addictive in this one.

Releasing March 19, The Walking Dead’s Survival Instinct game for PS3, XBOX 360, Wii U, and PC. The game is based on the popular television series The Walking Dead. This is the prequel to the show’s heart-stopping story with characters Daryl & Merle Dixon. This is before they met the rest of the gang in Atlanta. Crossbow’s and hand guns on a Zombie killing spree.
The trailer is intense! But leaves me wanting to play the game even more. Also, Darly is one of my favorite characters from The Walking Dead series. We get to see the story of their brother-hood before everything went down in Atlanta with Rick and T-Dog. Do you have what it takes to survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
