But what makes a fighter truly memorable are its characters. If I throw out the names Sub-Zero, Chun-Li and Jigglypuff you know what franchises I'm referring to because they're hard to forget. That's what makes Fate/Unlimited Codes such as worthwhile fighting game: it commits to building the backstory of individual characters, making them more than just animated fighting puppets.

A New Challenger Appears

A port of an arcade and PS2 game released only in Japan, Codes follows the journey of 7 Masters and 7 Servants, all vying for the highly coveted wish granting Holy Grail. In order to capture the cup, gamers must fight their way through a series of weapons-based battles. Combat is a breeze to pick up, and with three different modes for gamers to learn from (Practice, Mission, and Tutorial), you can tell developer Cavia wants this to be a fighter anyone can master.

Complimenting the controls are the visually stunning character models and animations. The action is swift, dynamic, and incredibly detailed; the game looks so good I would often forget that I was playing on my small PSP screen. And for those of you who like your badass chicks curvy, you'll see more bounce in this game than in a bowl of Jell-o.

You Gotta Fight...

But what truly makes Codes unique is its attention to its characters, not just in their appearance or fighting style but also in the development of their individual journeys. Unlike other fighting games, Codes has a strong backstory, thanks in part of it being based on a popular visual novel called Fate/stay night. Each character's backstory shines through and gives players a reason to root for or against certain fighters.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
