Great Moments in Gaming Humor: He's Good in the Dark

Dialog-heavy Japanese role-playing games don't often make the journey westward with their wit intact. Tri-Ace's challenging role-playing shooter Resonance of Fate proves itself one of the rare exceptions, nailing both the text and the timing of this hilariously steamy scene.


I'd give equal credit to the localization team and the voice actors on this one. We've got Mr. Nolan "Nathan Drake" North himself in the role of hunter squad leader Vashyron; Jessica DiCicco, the voice of Lexi Bunny from the cartoon Loonatics Unleashed as Leanne; and Zephyr is played by Scott Menville, who portrayed Joey McIntyre in the New Kids on the Block animated series.

Okay, so a lot of it was Nolan North.

Resonance of Fate was great. It's always nice to play a JRPG where the story isn't forced down your throat every goddamn minute with corny J-Pop, annoying melodrama and cutesy anime kids. Also, the three main characters have EXCELLENT banter (sometimes even during battles), and Nolan North does a great job.

The battle system is challenging, but incredibly rewarding. I give it a full recommendation.
