To give our readers some PSP love,  check out this “new” video for the soon-to-be-downloadable title, LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival.

When one thinks of a “fan service,” not often does one think of an IP that not only meets the requirements of the term, but also goes beyond expectations and delivers a quality gaming experience. Many fan service offerings undeniably fall short in terms of sheer playability and fun-factor, and it seems to have become general practice that if a developer grants the gaming community with a “fan service,” then gameplay can be overlooked to the point of mediocrity. Yet, this undiclosed “rule,” as all rules do, must have an exception to remain viable.

Square Enix, in an effort to become this very exception, has given us the ultimate RPG fan service, pitting twenty-two of Final Fantasy’s most well known warriors and villains against each other. Dissidia: Final Fantasy hopes to break free of fan-service inadequacy and create a new “rule” for all to abide by.

Warriors Orochi 2 looks rather impressive on paper. With ninety-six playable characters, five separate story campaigns, and a bevy of additional modes – one can’t help but be intrigued. Unfortunately, none of these features matter when the game simply isn’t any fun to play.

Regardless of the numbers of characters at the player’s disposal, or the level of depth in the admittedly deep character and weapon customization systems, the core gameplay mechanics behind Orochi 2 are bland, repetitive, and frustrating. Read more… »
