My follow up to the Building Story blog is still in the works. In the meantime you can check out my review of Patapon 3 at GamesRadar. It made a terrible first impression, and if I wasn’t being paid to review it, I would have stopped playing. The early hours of the game are just not fun. There’s way too much micromanagement and absolutely zero direction or explanation. After beating my head against the walls of convoluted stats for several hours I finally hit my stride and started having a great time. It’s a fun game at its core.
Well that’s my review in a nutshell. Read on if you’d like to see more.
