by Charlie Grammeron May 24, 2017
We were granted a chance to check out the second title in the Utawaerumono (but first to be localized) series, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. This is the first of a duology, and, as such, you can expect a bit of a cliffhanger ending. That said, how well does the title hold up? Story Mask of […]

Review | King of Fighters XIV Wants the Fighting Game Crown

by Josh Boykinon August 29, 2016
2D fighting games have a storied history in arcades, but they’ve also been a big presence in the console market. Street Fighter V’s release on PS4 and PC made a splash, but broken netcode held it back from larger success. SNK’s newest release, The King of Fighters XIV wants to be the king of fighting […]

Review | Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

by Adam Larckon July 22, 2016
When I first heard of the collaboration of Persona and Fire Emblem, I pictured something with Fire Emblem gameplay with characters from both universes meeting. What we got is something more akin to a Persona title, which actually ended up being better. While Persona 5 may still be half a year away, Tokyo Mirage Sessions […]

Review | Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir

by Josh Boykinon June 6, 2016
High definition re-releases are standard issue for current-gen consoles, with prettied-up versions of old games gracing the libraries of many players. Some titles don’t do much but add a new paint job and bundle in DLC, while others may add some new textures or previously unreleased sections to sweeten the pot. And then there’s Odin Sphere: […]

The Persona series is definitely ATLUS’ breakout hit, a successful paranormal series that’s spawned multiple spin-offs and sequels including a chibi dungeon crawler for the 3DS and a 2D fighting game for PS3 and XB360. Odds are that if you’re even reading this review, you’ve at least laid hands on most all of the Persona […]

by Adam Larckon September 4, 2015
The first choice in Lost Dimension is fairly easy. Soon, though, all it takes is one wrong accusation to destroy everything you’ve worked for. The strategy RPG title by Lancarse gives you all your teammates at once. Tells you to get to know them, find out their strengths and weaknesses and even forms bonds. To […]

Preview | Lost Dimension (PS Vita, PS3)

by Josh Boykinon July 24, 2015
Most RPGs start pretty similarly: one or two party members begin a journey, meet other characters to join them along the way, and everyone discovers new powers and skills along the way. As the game progresses on, players get favorite party members, relegating their least-favorite character to dust collection outside of battle. But what if […]
