Cheats and Walkthroughs
J.P. Shub is a Supervising Producer for X-Play. Hailing from Arizona, J.P. is an ultra cool rock god (seriously, he's in a band and everything), but don't let the exterior fool you: he's a geek at heart.
I finally have an excuse to learn how to play all those Bon Jovi songs for real thanks to the pro modes. This was my personal game of the year because it took my favorite game genre to a whole new level of excellence. Also, practicing guitar is a lot more fun with leaderboards than a metronome.
Having grown up in Arizona, I have always loved stories about the Wild West and RDR made me feel right at home. I could practically smell the creosote as I endlessly hunted down wildlife in the far reaches of the digital Sonoran desert.
Despite the fact that this is the buggiest game I have played in a long time, it is also one of my favorites. The excellent writing and endless amounts of stuff to do keep me coming back for more.
The multiplayer in this game crushes the previous one. I am sure there are plenty of folks out there who disagree with me, but this is my list – so bite me fanboys. The restructured perks, excellent maps and my personal favorite, RC Cars, have brought me hours and hours of profanity yelling joy.
I feel no shame in admitting that Lunar is my favorite RPG of all time and this was yet another awesome update to the SEGA CD classic. That being said, I hope this was my final play through of the original Lunar story. It’s high time for Lunar 3. Right!? Who’s with me on this!? Anyone?
