Beyond and Rune Factory 4 Reviews - Coming Soon

If you are a gamer, then chances are the past few weeks have been crazy for you. Many big name titles have hit the shelves, and some of you may be having a hard time deciding what to buy. We've had Grand Theft Auto V, Etrian Odyssey Untold, Rune Factory 4, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Disgaea D2, Armored Core: Verdict Day, as well as a few other games, get released, and very soon we'll be able to buy games such as Pokemon X and Y, Sonic Lost World, and Assassin's Creed IV as well! The end of November was crazy, and October will be just the same! So, which ones should you get? Well, I'll leave that up to you; however I would like to take the time to announce two new reviews that have now gone into the works!

Although I cannot cover every game that has been released, there are two reviews I would like to get out as soon as possible. The first review is what I would consider this month's "big" NGR review. If you are a long time reader, you would know that every month I pick one major release, and write a full detailed review over it. This review is published both on and off site, and it is also the review that gets entered in some review contests (which we have won quite a few times over the past year). Last month it was Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD, the month before it was Tales of Xillia, and before that it was The Last of Us. So, what will the next one be? Well, it is none other than Beyond: Two Souls of course!

Beyond: Two Souls is one of the PlayStation 3's last major titles, and it is one that a lot of fans of Heavy Rain have had their eyes on. It walks the line between film and gaming, and it is also one of the few games to push the PlayStation 3 to its limits. Due to its nature, not everyone may find this game enjoyable, but that is exactly why it was chosen for our next review. As for the second game, it too is what some might call a "major release."

Rune Factory 4 is the long awaited follow up to 2011's Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny. It is a game that builds upon just about everything that was set in its past, and it is one of the few Harvest Moon games to really try to push the series to the next level. It is a game that is loaded with content, and it has been refined in almost every way. While Harvest Moon and Rune Factory series staples still remain in tact, the game's new additions help make it stand out above the rest. It is a game I personally have been waiting quite some time for (just as a few other of our writers continue to wait), and I hope everyone looks forward to reading the review!
