Tales Of Hearts R Header

Traditionally, early November is a time when publishers trot out their triple-A holiday titles; this week’s itinerary of new releases confirms that industry custom. With big name releases such as Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Rogue, Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham and Halo: The Master Chief Collection hitting both store shelves and digital markets, disposable include might be sparse. Fortunately, a few stores have a number of money-saving deals, making the purchase of multiple titles just a little easier on our bank accounts.

Robert’s Pick: As a JRPG aficionado, the PS Vita has undoubtedly justified its purchase price, with the portable playing host to a number of exceptional role-playing titles. This week’s release of Tales of Hearts R add one more obligatory purchase to the Vita’s library, ushering in the franchise’s customary action-driven battles, charming characters, and lengthy storyline. Save for the cropping of Production I.G.’s animated cutscenes (ported from the DS version, which was never localized), Hearts R looks like a winner.

Tales Of Hearts R

 

Gonçalo’s Pick: Based on the strategy board game by Games Workshop, Space Hulk was a fun, deep, frustrating, and flawed experience. This year, Full Control Studios seeks to correct some of the issues with the original while adding more content and RPG mechanics to its standalone sequel, Space Hulk: Ascension Edition.  I don’t expect the game to be perfect, but it doesn’t have to be, dying and becoming frustrated is part of the Space Hulk experience, and I for one welcome it.

  1. Eagerly waiting for more reviews for Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

  2. Dirtiest game title of the week: Flapp & Zegeta. Sounds like two words for masturbation.

  3. I am fiending to play Valkyria Chronicles on PC. Can’t wait. I hope the port is good.

  4. Pokémon Puzzle Challenge is an old favorite. I loved taking a dump and dropping garbage on my opponent. (podcast reference).

  5. Get Off My Lawn! sounds like the official Adam Sessler game.

  6. No stopped the LEGO game machine. But tell me when they make one that’s almost as fun as playing with the real life blocks.

  7. Definitely going to pick up AC with the B2G1 free sale at Target.

  8. Tales of Hearts R for me this week.

  9. Why are there no prices for PSN games this week? C’mon Deagle, I rely on this info!

  10. How is Retro City Rampage: DX a new release? It’s been out for years!

  11. I kind of lost interest in Beyond Gotham when I heard about the season pass.

  12. Full Control’s Space Hulk games are pretty great. They’re very accurate to the boardgame, unlike the old EA Space Hulk games. I’m really excited for Ascension – I like all the squad customization stuff they’re adding to it.
