DRAGON QUEST Released for iOS and Android

Posted By Justin Lee On September 11, 2014 at 12:53 pm ADD COMMENTS

After its launch in 1986, DRAGON QUEST saw international success for being one of the first console role-playing games (RPG). Three years later, the title launched in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) under the name DRAGON WARRIOR. Since then, DRAGON WARRIOR I & II was released for the Game Boy Color in 2000. Now, for the first time in 14 years, SQUARE ENIX has released DRAGON QUEST – a classic retro title that pioneered the development of the RPG genre – on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices.

An introductory title to the acclaimed series, DRAGON QUEST players begin their voyage as the “Hero,” a descendent of the valiant hero Erdrick. Featuring an epic journey through the historic realm of Alefgard, players must tackle fearsome foes and adventure through perplex dungeons on their way to the trepid Dragonlord’s lair. After defeating an abundance of enemies, players can explore greater distances and complete additional quests.

“DRAGON QUEST is an extremely pivotal title within the industry; not only was it one of the first highly successful turn-based RPG’s, but it also spawned the successful franchise and set the standard for all other role-playing video games,” said Noriyoshi Fujimoto, the producer of the mobile DRAGON QUEST series. “We are thrilled to bring the legend of DRAGON QUEST to mobile devices and cannot wait for new and old fans to rediscover the RPG that won the hearts of two generations.”

Pure Pool Review – PlayStation 4

Posted By Michael Leparc On September 11, 2014 at 10:46 am ADD COMMENTS

Pure_Pool_LogoI’ve always been a fan of pool growing up, even though I’ve never had a table of my own, I’d take advantage of every opportunity I had to play whenever I came across one. This extended to my PC of course, as I was an avid player of the classic, Virtual Pool. So I was looking forward to trying out Pure Pool to sort of rekindle those memories. While it’s a good start at first glance and certainly an improvement over past offerings, there’s definitely a lot lacking in this package and some glaring omissions and issues.

Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment_YUI_03It’s been a long time since there’s been a single player RPG that tries to emulate the feel of an MMO. Now there’s an answer in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, the video game adaptation of the popular anime and light novel series.

Alien: Isolation Goes Gold, New Trailer Series Begins

Posted By Justin Lee On September 9, 2014 at 3:58 pm ADD COMMENTS

Alien Isolation LogoCreative Assembly is pleased to let us know today that Alien: Isolation has ‘gone gold’ and will be hitting shelves and digital storefronts worldwide from October 7, 2014. With the release just one month away, the team has put together a series of short trailers, the first out today.

’#HOWWILLYOUSURVIVE?’ is a series of short trailers running through to release, showcasing many of the unique ways that players will discover that surviving the creature, and the world of Sevastopol, means learning a whole new set of skills. In Alien: Isolation, the creature is hunting you. If it hears you, it will track down the source of the noise; if it sees you, it will pursue at speed; tackling it head-on is not for the faint-hearted. It’s ruthless, relentless and unstoppable. Which makes us ask, #howwillyousurvive?


Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game capturing the fear and tension evoked by Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic film. Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.

Alien: Isolation will be available from October 7, 2014, for Xbox One, PS4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
