The remake of Final Fantasy 7? First we have to make another chapter

At the end of the 90s the world of videogames has seen the throne what today is considered by most players as the best RPG of all time , if not the best game of all time: Final Fantasy 7. A masterpiece such as Squaresoft ( now Square Enix ) has not seen unequaled since 1997 , despite the great success of other games ( some a little ‘ different in terms of genre and style ) as its direct successor to Final Fantasy 8, the various Zelda, World of Warcraft, Skyrim , and others.

In recent years, fans of Cloud and his companions have been clamoring for a remake that kept intact the original gameplay improving the technical sector , starting with the graphics that saw the protagonists in the original super-deformed , ie, with giant big head characteristic of many Japanese productions . The Square Enix , for its part , continued to churn out chapters on chapters in which the quality was sadly declining , especially after the excellent Final Fantasy X from which the approval rating tanked . But why not make this remake so blessed required by millions of fans around the world?

Super Mario Galaxy review

Being the third installment in the legendary series of 3D-Mario, Super Mario Galaxy is necessarily a good game but, nowadays, have a good game is not enough. There was a time when Nintendo had in store for us and even games that exception, no major defects. Super Mario Galaxy is it out of this line? Or are we content ourselves again only a “good game”, nothing more? Difficult to say.

As usual, Princess Peach sends Mario a letter inviting him to the castle. Of course, Bowser comes in the middle of the party to ruin it and used it to kidnap Peach. We will avoid sensitive subjects and we will quickly forget the very scenario sought to focus the rest: during this short introduction full of surprises, one can see one thing: it’s beautiful. It is not as well on account of the test images, static, but the cutscenes and the rest of the game, too, are magnificent. Lighting effects, explosions of all kinds, well rendered shadow effects, a 3D fluid … Great art. Review old enemies modeled so well and for the first time in 3D, that’s an odd effect. What a pleasure to do battle with a Kamek in 3D! To review urchins Super Mario World in a sea so well made! The only odd detail, and say it has infuriated me, and find our dear Koopas reduced to the status of quadrupeds. Since Super Mario World, he was known biped, and it was so much more friendly way … Me well, it’s a detail, then return to the game.

The principle follows exactly that of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine: Mario finds himself in a world central observatory, in which he has access to several levels where he can find out. In finding him ouvrera access to new galaxies, and thus to new worlds, and therefore to new stars. The system has been proven, but it’s the third time that we used: a little change would not hurt … But it is clear that this is effective, and galaxies are pretexts for us to discover all of the decorations more amazing than the other: between the Kingdom of Bees, Desert, the Haunted Mansion or the Toy Box, Mario see the scenery! Each universe with its own peculiarities, giving us the impression of constantly discovery necessary to love playing a game, but increasingly rare these days. On this side, Super Mario Galaxy has its successful bet: you always want to discover new galaxies to see what programmers have concocted!

The principle follows exactly that of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine: Mario finds himself in a world central observatory, in which he has access to several levels where he can find out. In finding him And yes, because even if the game world is very diverse, it is clear that we often find ourselves doing the same thing. In fact, this is due solely to the laziness of the developers: put 120 stars is not an easy task, so rather than creating lots of levels, programmers have preferred forcing the player to repeat the same mission several times, with subtle differences: thus, “comets farceuses” sometimes require you to do exactly the same as you come to, but this time in a limited time, or else with faster enemies, or against your shadow etc. .. . If you succeed, hop, an extra star! In addition, during your adventure, Luigi will send you letters in which he will ask you to join in the levels you’ve already done: going to talk in those levels, you will have one more star … Artificial means well lengthen the lifespan of the game .. Additional levels have been so much wiser … uvrera access to new galaxies, and thus to new worlds, and therefore to new stars. The system has been proven, but it’s the third time that we used: a little change would not hurt … But it is clear that this is effective, and galaxies are pretexts for us to discover all of the decorations more amazing than the other: between the Kingdom of Bees, Desert, the Haunted Mansion or the Toy Box, Mario see the scenery! Each universe with its own peculiarities, giving us the impression of constantly discovery necessary to love playing a game, but increasingly rare these days. On this side, Super Mario Galaxy has its successful bet: you always want to discover new galaxies to see what programmers have concocted!

Super Mario Galaxy is a good game, there’s no doubt. The finish is just as easy, ensuring even the youngest to see the end. But the end to 100% will be reserved for more frequent, as some passages are vicious. This time, Nintendo has also thought of “old” players and served them a little challenge they will face … Finally, there is not much to blame Super Mario Galaxy. Except perhaps his too strong resemblance to its big brothers Nintendo 64 and Game Cube. A very good game, therefore, but a little new would it be asking too much?

WII Fit game for balance board

Wii Fit is the first game to take advantage of the Wii Balance Board. The concept is somewhat surprising as it is to use a bathroom scale as an accessory gaming Gossips find already an object of ridicule, hoping with a little smile that will come with interactive oven the next simulated kitchen. But it is clear that this new accessory is far from being a gimmick and he really brings a new dimension of play The Balance Board calculates the overall pressure on the board, but the originality of the object resides in detecting the center of gravity of the player. This is indeed called on to encourage the user to maintain a balanced posture in mini-games where you need to move this famous center gravité.Les different activities are unlocked depending on the time spent playing. Wii Fit we set foot in the door we suggest starting with a program to reach an ideal weight in a period between two weeks and one year. But beware, once established this program, if you come back with a few extra pounds while you’re supposed to lose, you get to blame on the part of the small metallic voice of the Balance Board! Despite the fact that the software will not advise you to do a particular exercise, the encouraging remarks or criticisms of the little Balance Board help to stay in school, even to lower the target. In the same vein as Wii Sports, Wii Fit is also proposed to calculate an age on the results of a small daily physical test. This simple function is directly accessible from the console menu using the Wii Fit Channel. Again the aim is to prevent the player wins by offering a short activity that can easily repeat all the exercises jours.Les not look like anything but good tired. The real work starts with fitness exercises and yoga. The small thirty years is not fully available from the start, they unlock gradually as a function of time. No worries so far, the exercises which is accessed from the start will be enough to bring you their share of aches. These exercises are also very varied: it can be a simple breathing technique as a painful series of pumps. They use the Balance Board so in different ways. In most cases we will ask you to stand on the board. Appears on the screen with a red dot that represents your center of gravity and the goal is to exercise while keeping that point within a given space. Sometimes it is the hands or arms that are asked on the Balance Board, it then verifying that the pressure is correct. You will receive a fine coach or a nice athlete to accompany you throughout these sessions and you must reproduce the same movements they perform. This is also where one of the main criticisms that one could oppose Wii Fit: Wii Balance Board merely verifies that your center of gravity is located but can not say whether these movements are actually correct. This negative aspect is however partially offset by the regular advice of your coach who will help you and make good gains speed positions.On bearing his weight forward. If you want to distract you from two years while continuing to burn calories, Wii Fit also offers aerobics. Four main activities are divided into several levels of difficulty: the hula hoop, step aerobics, jogging and boxing in rhythm. The interest in these games is very uneven, however, because it is rather fun to wiggle like a devil to run virtual hoops, jog in place while watching TV with a Wiimote in your pocket right now seems more austere. Finally, the less athletic of you may also dip into the nine mini-games of balance. The goal is then to better control its center of gravity to return balloons big butts, making descents on skis or snowboard, run a bubble, feeding a penguin with fish … These games are very short of a challenge by their difficulty and allow a good grip of the accessory (or rather, a good “take up”). They do not justify alone the purchase of soft, but they are a good addition to the exercises more seriously and go some way to get an idea of what the Balance Board will bring us on sports simulations such as We Ski. In short, Wii Fit is a title that will appeal to those who may seek a physical training program on their Wii.

Mass Effect 2 the test on PlayStation

Mass Effect 2 landed on PlayStation 3 to the delight of cosic adventurers  and roleplayers in thirst for extended Itersidér! It now remains to determine whether the crew of the Normandy is still blazing on the Japanese console.

The pitch of Mass Effect 2, I do not do it again, the criticism made at the time on the Xbox 360 (see test of Mass Effect 2 Xbox 360) the retailer already widely … So, moreover, it is recommended to players and players wishing to remain free of any revelations about the title, to avoid the first paragraph of criticism (I speak of the first paragraph, not Chapo! You have been warned ). In all ways, the essential thing to know about Mass Effect 2 is that it is a homogeneous mixture of action and RPG, set in an interstellar cosmos that borrows as much from Star Trek to Star Wars , to Battlestar Galactica. At the head of an elite mercenary team that will recruit all over the galaxy, you

start compiling against the threat of Harvesters, in an epic adventure and grandiose.

Engine … Action! (And RPG)

Amazed that you are inspired by the above heading, the question remains still in your mind then, what changes in the PS3 version? Not long ago, we reported that Mass Effect 2 PS3 graphics engine with the turn of the third episode.

So yes, I admit, but the real truth from my eyes and overtrained experts is clear: technically, the PS3 version is almost identical to the 360 version. Thus, if the display problem of some late textures is resolved, at times we keep a small amount of aliasing and some framerate drops. Some display bugs still exist sporadically but overall the game is still as beautiful and licked. In fact, we can say without difficulty that the PS3 version is superior that available on Xbox 360 thanks mainly to additional content.
