While helping with one of the battles, they rescue a little girl Lillia from a crashed spaceship. They decide to help find out where her home is and become...


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...


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...


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...


Demon Gaze Review

Anyone into the old D&D style dungeon crawlers where you make 90 degrees turns should like this - If you don't mind the cutesy "moe" Anime graphics. In Demon Gaze, Flan runs a manor for adventurers which acts as your base for resting up, arranging party members, purchasing items and getting new quests. Your main goal as "Demon Gazer" Oz...


Games of The Year 2013 and Onwards

While browsing through my gaming news sources I came by some "Games of the Year" articles so I thought I'd write my own to sum up 2013's year of gaming. I used to be a PC gamer but as my interest grew in Japanese exclusive Anime and games and, I started to have a proper income I moved to console gaming. Internet made it easy to import games and...


Rain for PS3 Review

It turns out to be quite a short but pleasant adventure game. On a rainy day, a young boy catches the silhouette of a girl outside his home. He runs after her and finds himself invisible just like the girl in a deserted, dark, raining world. Visible to each other only under the rain, the two children soon find themselves helping each other...


Guide to Becoming IdolM@ster - The Second

Yes, I know. 3 years late but better late than never. Had this written up long ago but never made the time to finish off the edit since there's little chance of any English speakers importing this ^^; Anyway, 120 hours of IdolM@ster 2 on the PS3 and got the platinum trophy. Looks and plays much better than the PSP game which only let you...


Steins;Gate - Story Synopsis & Game Mini Review

Interest probably grew in the Otakusphere towards Steins;Gate because of Black Rock Shooter since it is illustrated by the same artist Huke and, I admit it was the art that caught my eye in the first place when I saw an article about the game. Then it was the story line. Since I can't discuss the game spoilers in the forums I might as well...
