  1. A Promising Preview: Okamiden



    Every once in a while a game comes along that makes you sit up and say “wow, that looks really fun”. Most of the time these end up sucking. However, one game like that was not a disappointment for me and that game was Okami. Okami for me was like playing a really special Zelda game, and for those of you who missed it, lemme break it down real quick. Okami takes place in medieval Japan (big surprise right?) ...
