Video Review: Fortune Street

It’s been months since I was able to get behind my desktop, record some voiceover, edit a heck of a lot of video, and make a new review, but here it is!

Fortune Street on the Wii is not like any other “Party” game I’ve played. I think the misconception about the game is just that: it’s a party game. While Fortune Street is best enjoyed with other players on your couch, it’s just not as endearing as a Mario Party or a Monopoly. Unless you’re a stock broker who moonlights as a Mario junkie.

Laters,

Or how about explaining why sleeping outside on the ground can miraculously heal any and all wounds, no matter the severity?
And what about no one seeming to care that there are people carrying around weapons and ammunition to initiate a small war at any given second?

These are the questions that are never asked when playing a Role-Playing Game, yet they are always there in the back of your head, eating away at your thoughts long after the console has been turned off. Most of these issues are just components of the RPG itself, but some of them simply don’t make any damn sense. Here are ten unexplained, bizarre, and truly peculiar themes in RPGs.
