Yu-Gi-Oh Legacy of the Duelist Review: Heart of the Cards

Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist Logo Yu Gi Oh Legacy of the Duelist Review: Heart of the Cards

Yu-Gi-Oh Legacy of the Duelist offers a good way for long time fans to play the trading card game, but its lack of real story telling will not help new people become engaged.

Yu-Gi-Oh Legacy of the Duelist is a game aimed at those people who grew up playing and watching Yu-Gi-Oh. Instead of trying to tell a side story or recreate the known stories in a new fashion, Yu-Gi-Oh Legacy of the Duelist brings a straight up digital port of the card game and lore to your console.

For better or for worse, this is game is simply Yu-Gi-Oh on your console. A lot of other titles in this franchise relied on some sort of gimmick or changed the gameplay completely to entice fans of the franchise to jump in. Such as Yu-Gi-Oh The Flasebound Kingdom was more of a turn based RPG than a Yu-Gi-Oh card battler. This time around Yi-gi-oh is taking a much more simplistic route. Players will go through each of the series of Yi-gi-oh such as the original Yu-Gi-Oh television show, or even the later series like Yu-Gi-Oh 5DS. Players will simply battle their opponents in the story, or you can take your own personal deck online against friends or strangers. Everything you would want in terms of being able to play the Yu-Gi-Oh card game is here in this package.

Rare Replay Review: Excellence with Amazing Value

Rare Replay Intro 1024x576 Rare Replay Review: Excellence with Amazing Value

Rare Replay gives players 30 classic Rare titles for only $30. You would be crazy to not take advantage of this value.

Rare is celebrating thirty years in the gaming industry by releasing Rare Replay. Rare Replay is a Microsoft Xbox One exclusive that contains a collection of thirty hit games throughout the lifetime of the company. Games such as Jetpac that released in 1983, to Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts from 2008, and twenty-eight more epic Rare games between this time period. It is a rare sight to see a video game company that has been around for thirty years, and to produce thirty hit games like Rare has. Rare has released their gaming hall of fame for gamers of new and old, but do these games in this collection stand up to the test of time or do they falter to it.

I believe the first few minutes of a game are crucial, as they set the tone and mood for the gamer. The game opens with a exciting and flashing cinematic introducing the collection, it’s games, features, and their characters. Accompanied with an upbeat, well scripted, and catchy song that will get suck in your head for hours. Already you can see Rare’s hard work and dedication into this collection with their wacky and creative opening scene.

Waiting 4 Player 2 Episode 8: I Think N4G hates Microsoft

Waiting 4 player 2 logo Waiting 4 Player 2 Episode 8: I Think N4G hates Microsoft

Waiting4Player2 is the new podcast where your comments shape the show. Instead of just listening to their dumb faces, your comments and reactions are the conversation. The best part about being apart of the show is you can win some cool prizes. Each week, the user who has comment of the show will get something good (or ridiculous) to add to their gaming collection.

Poor Microsoft. Can they do anything right? Sure they can but your comments say otherwise. The parity clause is back in the news thanks to some dodgy answers. And Hololens is shaping up to be the next Kinect according to some of you. But no worries because we are just about ready for an all digital gaming future. Well thats not true. Because you hate that also.
