Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Game for the Nintendo Wii

April 16, 2016

Fire Emblem is one of the best strategy RPGs of all time. It has a lot of version already and some of them are even ported to different gaming consoles.

The Nintendo platform is home to some of the Fire Emblem games. Today, we are going to talk about a sequel to the Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem game called the “Path of Radiance”.

The Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Game for the Nintendo Wii is that sequel and it has all of the characters that are present in its predecessor and there are also some original ones present as well.

Radiant Dawn has a different approach when it comes to its storyline. There are four main parts of the story, each of them having a prologue chapter and an endgame chapter.

Each part of the story ultimately ties together to allow the player to understand the events that have transpired.

The game starts three years after the events of the Mad King’s War (which was the war in the previous game). Crimea was the kingdom who ultimately won the war, leaving Daein in chaos.

Since there was no true successor to the Daein empire, the kingdom was ruled by a handful of nobles and corrupt imperial soldiers.

The story begins with some Daein Rebels called the “Dawn Brigade”. The Dawn Brigade was able to locate the rightful heir to the Daein throne, a prince by the name of “Pelleas”.

After Pelleas’ appearance, Daein was ultimately won back and the corrupt nobles and imperial soldiers were cast out of the kingdom.

After the events of Daein, it was now time to focus on Crimea. Crimea, albeit won the war, was still in the process of rebuilding. Unfortunately, the current ruler’s commands were questioned by the military, and thus, a coup d etat ensued. After internal affairs were restored, the game then shifts to the main storyline.

The main gist of the story is about Crimea and Daein, once again, in a battle because of certain events that transpired in the game. The player must win the battle, and should he/she complete certain events, they will have different endings.

The Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Game for the Nintendo Wii pretty much retains all of the characters present in the first game except Largo. It still has the same battle system mechanics wherein you will be presented with a square board and your units as well as the enemy units will be placed in different parts of the battlefield.

Since the Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Game for the Nintendo Wii doesn’t really have a solid main character, the player will be able to control different factions depending on the story arc he/she is currently in.

Even though this game has a “permanent death” feature where previously defeated characters will not be present in the game anymore, there are some exceptions to this rule. This exception only applies to key characters, though.

The Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Game for the Nintendo Wii is a very good addition to the Fire Emblem roster. With its multifaceted storyline, this game will never bore you.

Skylanders Superchargers Game for the Nintendo Wii U

February 12, 2016

Skylanders is a gaming franchise that has spawned a lot of fans. The game’s made for young people or adults who are young at heart. Basically, this game is a toy-to-life video game that portrays toy figurines as if they were alive.

The game underwent many iterations starting from the Skylanders: Spyro’s adventure up to the Skylanders: Giants.

In today’s article, we are going to talk about the Skylanders Superchargers Game for the Nintendo Wii U. This is the newest game in the franchise, but unlike the previous installments, this game is more of a racing game as opposed to the conventional adventure game element.

The game revolves around the Skylanders and Kaos (who is the main antagonist even on the previous games). The Skylanders in this game is called the “Superchargers” because they now ride a specialized vehicle that has an attunement on each of the characters.

Anyway, Kaos got a hold of the Dark Rift engine; a powerful engine that has immeasurable powers. Kaos also got a new ally in the form of the “Darkness”. Together, both of them reside in the Sky Eater Islands.

The Superchargers along with key characters, Flynn, Cali, and Glumshanks, head on to the Sky Eater Isles and confronted both Kaos and the Darkness. After a much-heated battle, the Superchargers were able to defeat Kaos but the Darkness froze everyone except Kaos.

The Darkness told Kaos to defeat all of the Superchargers while they’re still frozen, but Kaos wants none of this because he doesn’t want to be told what to do. Kaos then used the Dark Rift Engine to propel him and all the Superchargers away from the Sky Eater Isles, leaving the Darkness helpless and unable to do anything.

Skylanders Superchargers Game for the Nintendo Wii U still has the same gameplay mechanics as that of its predecessors with one key difference: the Skylanders are now called Superchargers and they have their own vehicle.

The Portal of Power, a centerpiece of the game, also got a little bigger to accommodate the vehicles.

Vehicles are one of the biggest additions to the game. According to Activision, most of the missions will be done riding vehicles. There are three types of vehicles you can use depending on the map: one for air, land, and water.

In missions where you will use the ground vehicles, you are presented with a race track-like map where you navigate the vehicles in order to complete the objectives. The same goes for water vehicles, but instead of hovering through the land, you are subjected underwater where the missions will be a little bit challenging.

Lastly, there are some missions where you will use air vehicles as well. Unlike all other types of vehicles, though, air vehicles have an autopilot system where the players can fly their vehicles without them having to touch the controls.

The game supports two players at once; a player will drive the vehicles while the other uses the weapons to eliminate enemies.

The Skylanders Superchargers Game for the Nintendo Wii U is another iteration of the popular franchise and is really one of the most enjoyable games for the platform.

If you have a Nintendo Wii U and you want some crazy fun, you better play the Skylanders Superchargers.
