I really liked Shadow Hearts Covenant for the Playstation 2. It was a little straight forward for its time, so perhaps that is even more glaring now, but the combat system, characters, and story were a lot of fun. It was a good light-hearted JRPG.
I just got it and am working my way through the tutorial. The initial character customization is a little weak, but hopefully that pans out further into the game. The story set-up seems cool and I am looking forward to the actual show. I appreciate that the SyFy network is attempting to do some cool tie-in stuff with this game .

I liked the Year Walk - thought there was one progession step and one puzzle that was unclear. The progession step that I missed over and over again reminded me of that part in COD: Black Ops where you have kick down the barrels. In other words, I think a lot of people are going to have a problem progessing past that step.
The reason the internet was tricked was not because of the trailer, but because of click first/fact check second reporting. Frankly, I was disappointed that Giantbomb got duped. I stopped regularly going to Kotaku, Joystiq, etc. because there was little thought behind their stories/writing. Thankfully, I've been with Giantbomb long enough to know what happened here was an aberration. Guys, just be more careful in the future.
