107 games: GamePro's 2008 fall preview guide!

There are a heaping ton of great games to talk about, 107 to be exact!

#89: Castlevania Judgment

Fall 2008: Wii The Castlevania franchise stakes its claim in the one-on-one fighting game genre. A plethora of famous 'vania villains and heroes fill the roster, and the Wii-exclusive title also promises Wi-Fi connectivity with Order of Ecclesia on the DS to unlock extra features. Rabid Castlevania fans may scream "sellout," but longtime series producer Koji "Iga" Igarashi's involvement gives us (cautious) hope.

#88: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Fall 2008: DS Dracula bites. Dracula sucks. He is also the Road Runner of historical/fictional monsters, with a plucky, never-say-die attitude. It's time to stake Dracula once again, this time with the female protagonist Shinoa, a woman who can combine magical glyphs to create special attacks. The glyphs come in different flavors (sword, fire, light, dark) and can be attached to Shinoa's back and arms, or combined to create a delightful symphony of destruction. The glyphs will also help her explore the game's 2D worlds, creating rings that have magnetic effects and can slingshot her about. More classic 2D Castlevania action.

#87: The Conduit

First Quarter 2009: Wii The Wii isn't exactly a graphical powerhouse, but if The Conduit has its way, you'll be seeing visuals that are nearly on-par with the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. In this futuristic first-person shooter, you'll play a secret agent charged with fending off an impending alien invasion by a mysterious race called "The Drudge." Conduit is set in a post-apocalyptic/alien invasion-type of world, which sounds like a mash up of FPS clich?s, but works well for gameplay purposes. You've got Killzone-esque army dudes and Resistance-style crawlies to kill with alien guns reminiscent of Halo. And like all those games, Conduit should have a robust suite of online modes. Well, robust for the Wii anyway.

#86: Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen

September: DS One of the greatest 2D role-playing games of all-time writes a new chapter on the DS with re-imagined visuals and modernized gameplay. Dragon Quest IV retains the essence of its original release on the DS, but with welcome changes including a new Japanese-to-English translation, tweaks to bring the battle system in line with the remake of Final Fantasy III, and some bonus content. Any serious RPG fan must have this in their collection.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
