Robio commented on Review: Data East Arcade Classics (Wii):

I picked this up a couple days ago. Got to say this would have been more preferrable in individual releases on the Virtual Arcade (when was the last time that saw any support anyway?). Burger Time is still a lot of fun. Caveman Ninja isn't bad, and Wizard Fire is decent though very rough around the edges. Everything else ranges from a "meh" to "who in their right minds would have even found this fun 20 years ago?"

Robio commented on The Grinder Gets a Release Date; Goes Multi-Pl...:

Unless this game is absolutely outstanding, I think they've ultimately doomed themselves by going multi-platform. There's no shortage of good shooters on the HD systems, nor will there be in 2011. If this game ends up being just okay or even worse, it'll be ignored on those systems and the extra expenses that went to developing for those systems are just going to be wasted.

Plus, October 2011???? Seriously?? Who do these guys think they are?? Capcom promoting RE5?

Robio commented on Review: Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility (Wii):

For the record though, there was a lot to like in this game. The entirely new cast had some pretty interesting characters. Plus they did a good job of integrating a story that had a goal that required you do more than just go about your daily tasks like in Magical Melody (which for some reason every review tends to ignore). I will agree that the pacing is a little slow, but not as bad a Wonderful Life. If you can put up with the load times, this really isn't a bad game.

The farming aspect of the game is obviously superior in Harvest Moon than in Rune Factory, but I also have to give the community and socializing aspects of HM the nod over Rune Factory. New villagers constantly move in, and they have routines that you can actually follow all throughout town. Characters have more personality as well. That being said Rune Factory is the better game. There's just a lot more to do, and even though it's not as in-depth it's still a lot of fun. Plus, visually Rune Factory is much better.

Robio commented on Review: Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (Wii...:

Let me just take a second and clarify how the chapters and additional content work in this game because I think some people are a little confused on how it works. People keep referring to them as sidequests and that's not what they are.

The main storyline is offered up in two chunks, each at 800 points. The first being the part just released and the conclusion being offered around September.

As you play the main story you'll see brief cameos of the other characters or their names will be brought up in passing. The 300 point addtional content "Tales" are the stories of these characters. They explain what Rydia, Yang, and everyone else was doing while the main crisis was unfolding, how it affected them, and how they dealt with it.

You don't have to play them at all, but it does give you greater insight into characters you liked in the original game, but maybe aren't as important in the new game.

The story is just as good as the original in my opinion. At least in the main story line anyway (still working on Rydia's tale). That took about 5 hours and it had plenty of twists and turns. The last hour of it, in particular, is very gripping. Really comes to a crescendo nicely.
