Xenoblade Chronicles 3D - review

This comes a GamesTM review for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D...

This relatively minor annoyance aside, everything else about Xenoblade Chronicles 3D remains as incredible as when it originally came to the Wii. A few years on it still remains one of the finest RPGs money can buy, and the move to handheld only serves to further highlight the way its fast-paced gameplay breathes new life into a flatlining genre. For anyone who had been putting off upgrading their 3DS hardware until the release of an essential New 3DS-only title would make it a necessity, that time may have come much sooner than you thought.

In a vast world of adventure, where the action stretches as far as the eye can see, you must battle evil in the sprawling RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, only for New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL. An almighty crash heralded the sudden arrival of the Bionis and the Mechonis to this world, for the two titans were locked in a timeless battle. Once the dust had settled, only their corpses remained. Now, the Bionis' enormous body, covered in lush plains, is home to a developed civilisation, the Homs. But life on Bionis was not destined to flourish forever. One day, a horde of mechanical life forms from the Mechonis launched an all-out attack on the inhabitants of Bionis. The Homs' only remaining hope is a legendary sword, Monado, said to be a gift from the titan itself. Unfortunately, whosoever wields the sword must endure a great toll on their body...

PR - official information and trailer for Actos Games' psyscrolr

Burlington, NC - March 30, 2015 - Actos Games, creator of their new Wii U exclusive title, psyscrolr, (pronounced "Sy-Scroller") have announced their game will be launching this week, specifically April 2nd, 2015, on Nintendo's eShop service.

In releasing the game to the public, Actos Games' CEO, Jonathan Meyer had these words to say: "We really want the players to connect with the world of psyscrolr. We've engineered a fantastic soundtrack put together by a joint team of composers, Mauro Zocco and Scott Hitchcock, both two up-and-coming video game music maestros." Meyer added, "In particular, we have a sunset level as an homage to Donkey Kong Country: Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze where the entire level is shadowed by the sun. This level is enhanced by Zocco's lazy summer track with an added cicada noise to get the player into the mood. We think you'll really love it."

The game will be adding additional DLC over time after its initial release. "We feel the story of psyscrolr serves itself better updated over time. A more episodic feel invites players to want to come back to the world, continue their save, and find more," Jonathan Meyer stated. "An example are the letters strewn throughout certain levels of the game. There are more secrets we plan to add in a further update, as well as hidden mini-games added to the game to enhance replayability with leaderboards and Miiverse features planned."

psyscrolr is a Wii U exclusive title, downloadable April 2nd, 2015 from Nintendo's eShop service. It is a platformer game with puzzles separating the diverse combat layouts of its levels. Epic boss battles will challenge you to figure out the puzzles within the combat. Players take control of the Scrolr, a boy imbued with psychic powers he didn't want, and aided by the Narrator, a disembodied voice assisting the Scrolr on his journey. Take control of the game by using the GamePad to assist the Scrolr in puzzles and unleash devastating slash attacks as well as powerful psychic fireballs.

For more information on psyscrolr, please visit http://www.actosgames.com for development updates as well as information on all our titles.

A start-up in Burlington, NC, Actos Games is based around crafting interesting and innovative experiences for any variety of platforms, including PC, Mobile, and consoles. Established in 2013 by Jonathan Meyer, their company specializes in crafting unique experiences on any platform. Current projects include psyscrolr, APEXICON - Fantasy Puzzle Combat, and more. Actos Games self-publishes on any platform it releases its games on, to better allow direct communication between developer and consumer. For more information, visit http://www.actosgames.com.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D - live music performances

Famitsu - look at the Theatrhythm Dragon Quest reviews

Reviewer 1 - 10
The "Theatrhythm" series brings a lot of familiar music, which is its greatest feature, and this time we are given the many wonderful melodies of the Dragon Quest series, including plenty of music from memorable scenes. This version includes the new mode called "Sugoroku Mode"*, which is a little different in nature, and there are many familiar Dragon Quest aspects displayed in a pretty graphic style. There are a lot of dazzling masterpieces here, so I encourage you to enjoy it.
(* Sugoroku is a traditional Japanese board game played with dice)

Reviewer 2 - 8
In addition to the difficulty selection, you can use buttons or touch controls. The game can be operated either way and switched on the fly, which is a great design choice so that a wider range of people can enjoy. Songs from Dragon Quest often left an impression of combat or running through the fields, and you can also play through numerous masterpieces where the tension builds up dramatically. The original music feels great too, because if it were arranged differently, it might make some people feel uncomfortable.

Reviewer 3 - 9
The music from Dragon Quest is just so exciting while playing this game. The trigger is essentially sliding up and down to the rhythm, and this can be hard to grasp and get used to immediately. But there is a true sense of satisfaction when doing it well, and things such as Metal Slime make an appearance. It's also fun that this kind of game contains the essence of combat. I'm also very glad that there are NES original songs on here.

Reviewer 4 - 8
Although it is a rhythm game, the system is packed with Dragon Quest everywhere. The adventure and battle style is back with RPG fun to proceed, and it is just done really well. The game modes are versatile as well, from beginner to advanced. I feel rhythm markers are a bit hard to see in some cases, but that may be just about practicing. Various elements are bound together well, there's lots of content, it's well made, and the touch controls are pleasant.
