Bandai Namco Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming game, Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2. The game shows off many improvements on the first one and looks to be a great experience as well. Check out the trailer below.
Fantasy games and point and click games are a match made in heaven. I do not mean stuff like Telltale’s Game of Thrones, but rather high fantasy. That said, a humorous take on the genre is also good. The book of Unwritten tales was a great game that took the fantasy genre on its head and made it a fun experience. It had well developed characters and plots and great interactivity that allowed for a unique gaming experience.
Now years later, Nordic Games has brought The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 to Wii U and the result is amazing. The game improves on the original in almost every way. The graphics are better, the controls are more intuitive and the story is just bonkers. Imagine the most epic story, worthy of Lord of the Rings, then imagine it turned on its head and mocked to hell and back. That comes somewhat close. The protagonists have new goals to achieve and while this is a parody of fantasy games, their journeys are worth following. The game is extremely well written and plotted and the characters are believable despite the setting. The game is hilarious and I have to admit that I laughed out loud so many times that I lost count.
The game controls well and is much more intuitive than the first game was. The visuals shine far better as well and the result is amazing. We have a game that is a big improvement on an already great original. The music is also great and really helps get you into the game. I would say that this game has some of the best video game music that I have heard all year.
Nordic Games has done a great job with bringing this game to Wii U and they deserve a lot of praise for that. This is a great port and plays to the Wii U’s strengths. All in all, I have to recommend this game for anyone with a Wii U, who enjoys point and click games. You will not regret getting it.

Atlus and SNK have released a new trailer for The King of Fighters XIV, this time showing off Team South America. This team has a good blend of styles and looks like it will play well. Being a fan of boxers, I will definitely be checking out Nelson.
The agile members of Team South America — Bandeiras Hattori, Zarina, and Nelson
— are focusing their energy towards fighting anyone and everyone in THE KING OF
FIGHTERS XIV Tournament!
Even though each member of Team South America are fighting for different reasons,
they’ve banded together to help each other out. First off, Bandeiras Hattori is
a self-trained ninja who practices the legitimately dangerous art of, uh, Brazilian
ninjutsu (not to be confused with Brazilian jiu-jitsu!). Basically, Bandeiras is
a 100% certified Brazilian ninja who wants to win the tournament to earn respect
and get students for his dojo. Next up is Zarina, the savior of rain forests! She
wants to raise money and awareness for the environment, and has zero issues beating
up competitors in the name of nature. Zarina will dazzle opponents with her acrobatic
Capoeira fighting style and is a strong member of this team. Oh, she’s also bringing
along her adorable toucan friend Coco. Lastly, there’s Nelson, the boxing prodigy
who wants to punch his way to the top in order to raise money for a loved one. He
lost one of his arms in an accident, but was lucky enough to receive a mysterious
cybernetic replacement that you could say gives him the upper hand during fights.
With his fancy footwork and nasty hooks, Nelson will be a difficult opponent for
