A Few Words on The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC A Few Words on The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC

The ever lauded Trails in the games, an RPG series I’ve seen praised constantly wherever it appeared especially over at Kotaku. Though I actually bought the game quite a while back, I’ve always felt it a bit daunting to get into. All the praise heaped on to it served to heighten my expectations which made me feel like…

A Few Words on Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim A Few Words on Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim

Ys, the other storied JRPG series by Falcom after The Legend of Heroes and one which is largely defined by two things, its red-haired protagonist and intense fast-paced action.

A Few Words on Ace Academy A Few Words on Ace Academy

I started doing these posts last year for the ‘2018 SixTAYDays of Writing’ challenge and since I’ve decided to participate again, what better way to do so than to continue on with these. This time around rather than picking games at random from what I’ve completed recently, I’m got to start at the top, of this year,…

All the Games I Completed in 2018 All the Games I Completed in 2018

As the title of this post says, below are all the game I (cough*proudly*cough) finished in the year 2018 in the order that I completed them. I’d also like to note that not a single game here actually released this year and with that let’s move on to the first entry:

Playing Inazuma Eleven 2 Blizzard (Part 2) Playing Inazuma Eleven 2 Blizzard (Part 2)

As we gather our crew and prepare to board the bus, the game switches over to Nara where the Prime Minister is currently visiting, to help unveil a deer statue monument at the Nara Deer Park. As the ceremony commences, our foes from Alius Academy crash the party and in the blink of an eye abduct the Prime Minister…

Playing Inazuma Eleven 2 Blizzard (Part 1) Playing Inazuma Eleven 2 Blizzard (Part 1)

Having recently watched the Inazuma Eleven Scales of Ares anime which acts as a reboot of the original series 2nd arc, I decided to once more make my way through the original 2nd arc, this time however, through the 2nd game rather than the anime. It’s been a long time since I finished the 1st game in the series and…

A Few Words on Fault Milestone One A Few Words on Fault Milestone One

I’ve only ever played a few visual novels in my short time on this planet we call Earth but even though I may not have a lot of experience in the genre, I can safely say that Fault Milestone One, the first title in the fault series, is a good game. It definitely has it flaws but succeeds where it counts and it makes…

A Few Words on X-Men Origins: Wolverine A Few Words on X-Men Origins: Wolverine

I’d like to start by saying/typing that this is about the tie in game not the film and unlike the film, the game is a pretty good. Its a basic hack n slash with a bit of light platforming and puzzle solving which all revolves around a story kind of related to its film counterpart

A Few Words on Monument Valley A Few Words on Monument Valley

I kind of stumbled on this game one day as I was browsing through play store and in that moment, two things caught my attention. One was the game’s aesthetic which had this beautiful yet abstract feel to it, and the other was that it was currently free for a limited time. It looked cool and was free so I thought, why…

A Few Words on Sonic Generations A Few Words on Sonic Generations

First things first, Sonic Generations is the only Sonic game I’ve played. So, even though the game is a celebration of Sonic, new and old, I can’t really say how well it recreates what came before. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my first outing with the Sonic franchise and will definitely check out the others.…

A Few Words on Rise of the Tomb Raider A Few Words on Rise of the Tomb Raider

It’s been a while since I played Tomb Raider (2013) and although it felt very much like Uncharted in its gameplay, I appreciated the more serious, dramatic story it told. Anyway, the point is, I really liked the game and when the sequel was announced, I was quite ecstatic to play it. Alas, not having an 8th gen…

A Few Words on Blade Kitten A Few Words on Blade Kitten

So, my post on FF XV got a decent amount of traction and since I had just finished the game that very day, it felt good to sort out my feelings and convey them to others in a post. As such, I’ve decided to share my thoughts on my recent gaming endeavors starting with the first game I finished last month, Blade Kitten.

A Few Words on Final Fantasy XV A Few Words on Final Fantasy XV

So, you may be wondering, why Final Fantasy XV ? Why now, almost 2 years since its release ?

XMetalWolf's Year in Games (2017): The 1st Half XMetalWolf's Year in Games (2017): The 1st Half

2017 saw the release of a great many exciting titles from what is arguably the newly released Switch’s flagship title in Breath of the Wild to more unexpected surprises like Nier Automata and the latest entries to major franchises such as Mario, Wolfenstein and Assassin’s Creed. While I was able to play only two games…

Watch Dogs Free on Uplay from 7th to 13th November Watch Dogs Free on Uplay from 7th to 13th November

Just a heads up for anyone who wants/wanted to try out the first Watch Dogs game but didn’t want to pay for it and for those who have Uplay, might as well make some (good ?) use of the service.

XMetalWolf's Top Anime of Summer 2017 XMetalWolf's Top Anime of Summer 2017

As the Summer Season of 2017 comes to a close its time to look back on all the poor life decisions we made by locking down the best ‘chinese cartoons’ that have consumed our lives these past three months. While originally a more standard ‘top xx’ post, I decided to do things a little differently here by instead giving…

Samurai Jack Season 5 Review Samurai Jack Season 5 Review

Sixteen years ago, a surreal little animated show known as ‘Samurai Jack’ graced our television screens and immediately differentiated itself from many of its contemporaries by boasting stylized animation, great storytelling, memorable characters, weird yet wonderfully crafted locales, a noble protagonist with…

Hi Everyone the name’s XMetalWolf (well not really) and I’m really excited to be participating in this event for the first time.

Pokémon GO:
Childhood Dream Come True or Fantastical Failure ? Pokémon GO: Childhood Dream Come True or Fantastical Failure ?

Now that I’ve got your attention with the unnecessarily dramatic headline, let’s take a step back from the extremes of that statement and look at this game from a more reasonable point of view.

The Lost Village
(Mayoiga) Review The Lost Village (Mayoiga) Review

Mayoiga, a show that has garnered wildly different reactions from a number of people ranging from outright disgust to actual enjoyment and also the ever popular ‘It’s a hidden comedy’ defence. So what is it about Mayoiga that has caused people to derive such varied and derisive opinions ?
