Yoru no Nai Kuni

Arnice and Lilysse re-unite

In the world of Yoru no Nai Kuni (Nights of Azure), a demon was defeated long ago and her blood scattered all over the world, turning everything it touched into demons. Now demons appear whenever it’s night, causing a lot of unrest sleepless nights and that’s why countries are now “nightless (yoru no nai)”. Two girls Lilysse and a half-bred, Arnice were born in this age, working as hunters and exorcising the areas they could to restore peace.

Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna Review

So Square-Enix announced a mysterious title called, “Project Setsuna” a long time ago and now it’s known as “Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna [Setsuna of Sacrifice and Snow]” or “I Am Setsuna” in the West. Most people got a Chrono Trigger vibe from all the footage that got released. It might be from an unknown studio called Tokyo RPG Factory but for me, it looked like a fun JRPG to play.

Story is quite similar to FFX – Chosen girl, Setsuna is to go on a journey to sacrifice herself to maintain the peace in the world. Very straight forward plot. Just happens someone (the player) is sent to assassinate her but she pleads to be her escort since she’s going to die anyway.

Setsuna and Mr Assassin

Exist Archive Review

Tri-Ace games have been a mixed experience for me. I didn’t like Star Ocean 4 for its stiff animation and bland battle system but, I did enjoy Resonance of Fate so I decided to try Exist Archive.

So, a group of gifted teenagers who possess certain talents are caught up in an accident one day and find themselves on another planet. The AI overseer, Amatsume who governs the planet tells them they are dead and has gathered their souls so that she can keep an eye of the great evil sealed within each of them. Meanwhile, another race is trying to overthrow her rule and unleash this evil. It’s up to them to choose who to side with for a chance to returning home.

It begins...

Persona Q Review

Atlus made quite an interesting move by putting together their most popular Persona series with their classic dungeon crawler series, Etrian Odyssey.

So the story takes place after Persona 4 Golden. An ominous tower appears, the Persona characters somehow find themselves trapped in a place similar to Yasogami High. They meet Rei and Zen who claims to be in a similar situation. Together, they start exploring trying to find a way out. You have the choice to play as the Persona 4 or 3 gang, each having their own version of the dialogue of the story.
