If you have bought the game Kid Icarus: Uprising than you might have noticed that there were six cards that came with the game. To see the AR cards in action you can take a look at this youtube video here:

~~~~~~~~~
2011 has been a great year for Jrpgs and RPGs with games like Final Fantasy Type O and The 3rd Birthday that came out this year it kind of makes you think of some past favorites! And one of my favorites is Kingdom Hearts2...so I thought I would do a review on it! I know most everyone who wanted to play it already has but it's never to late to add new fans to the fanbase!
~~~~~~~~~
Pros:

Great Storyline
Appealing Characters
Memorable Boss Battles
Great Voice Acting
Awesome Cameos
Great Battle System
Beautiful CGI Cutscenes

Cons:
The Little Mermaid Themed Island( this coming from a person who loved The Little Mermaid movie!)
The Time Gap between This Game and the First One...It leaves a few gaps in the Story but They Have Been Filled by a number of Spin off Games

~~~~~~~~
Long ago when I first heard about Square-Enix and Disney collaborating on a game...well I personally thought it could turn out ...OK.So when the first KH game came out I bought it and I ended up loving the game! Then not long after the first game came out they confirmed that a sequel was in the works...and if you know me you will know that I hate sequels! I'm not saying that all sequels are bad just most of the ones that are thoughtlessly thrown together just to get more money! In my opinion a good sequel needs to improve and add to the story while keeping the things that we loved about the first. And KH 2 TOTALLY delivered! The graphics in this game where better than the last game...but then again graphics don't make a game the story does! So lets talk a bit about the story! And don't worry I will try to make this review as spoiler free as possible!

In KH 2 you start off the game by playing as Roxas in Twilight Town with his three friends. Andhe seems likea normal teenager (I think he's a teen but not quite sure) until he stumbles upon an abandoned castle and a strange man. And Roxas is wielding hisKeyblade soon after! Oh and FYI you won't be able to play as Sora for about half way through the game almost but Roxas's story keep you entertained until then. Their are also some new Island/worlds that make their debut in this game like Tron and the Pirates of the Caribbean! And speaking of new worlds...my favorite would have to have been the Pirates of the Caribbean one because you get to fight along side Jack Sparrow and sail the high seas! Plus the dialogue between Jack and Sora was EPIC! And I don't know about you guys but it seems to me like their are very few games that take your emotions for a roller coaster ride and KH 2 is one of those games! I found myself almost crying or about to throw my controller at the TV at certain points in the game! And the ending of this game is VERY memorable! Their are just no words that I can use to explain the ending of this game! So this game has earned it's place as one of my favorite games in the series!

Final Analysis: 1-10 (10 being the highest mark)
Overall: 9

My 12 Days of Gaming

by on

Day 1 … Zelda Skyward Sword

Wii + Zelda = EPIC!

The Wii's motion gaming has made it possible for us to sword fight as Link on this adventure! I think I'm almost half way into the game and I just can't stop playing! And this might sound weird but… every time I play skyward sword on the Wii I put on my Link hat (And yes it looks just like his!).

Day 2 … Batman Arkham City

I'm Batman! Well… not really but it's fun to play as him! And this batman game is different then most other games because you get all of the weapons from the first game! And I wish more games would adopt this idea! Robin and Catwoman make their debut in this game which adds to the awesomeness of the game! And you can also get a download able Nightwing skin on PSN or Gamestop.com.

What I Would Like to See Happen With Sonic

by on

File:MD Sonic the Hedgehog.png

When I was a kid (I'm 17 now)a family friend of ours gave me a very special present that I still have to this day! Can you was what it was? It was a SEGA Genesis and a Sonic game! It was my first ever Sonic game and after playing it for a few minutes I was hooked! And a new Sonic fan was born! Sonic has come a long way since those days of the Genesis with games likeSonic colors, Sonic Generations, and Sonic heroes sonic has improved greatly but that doesn't mean without flaws. Yes, like any great series their are always a few flaws but with improvement it can become better!

So I'm going to help by giving my two cents to help expand the Sonic universe! First of lets talk characters! We all love sonic and Co but their are a few characters that well don't get to be in the spotlight. For example Jet the Hawk has a great back story that could be elaborated on and I'd love to see some dialogue between him and Sonic or maybe a friendly showdown! I would love to see more of Silver and Blaze they are such deep characters with so much unexplored about them I defiantly would like to see more! I would like to see some more dialogue between Rouge and knuckles in the games because in the Sonic X TV show they had some great lines! And I would like to see some few faces in the sonic gang but I would like a nice balance between the new and old characters. Oh and I have just two words! ROBOT SONIC!

Where should sonic venture to next? Well … Sonic and Co could explore the Galaxies or time travel back in time to fix something maybe. Visiting other worlds or hopping dimensions could prove to be fun! The possibilities are endless!

Now moving on! I would love to see a few RPG features added to some Sonic games like quests, rich storytelling, and character development. I would also like to see gameplay that is unique to each character so at to add an extra special touch to the game. It would also be cool if the stories' ending is affected by the choices you make in the game! That would just add a whole new level of EPIC for me!

Well that's it for today! I hope you enjoyed my entry! And if you have questions or comments just post them below!
