Persona 4 Dancing All Night

Yet, another spin-off Persona 4 game from Atlus, exploring genres they've never been in before. Well, not really... Arena was developed by Arc System Works well known for their popular Guilty Gear fighter games and now DAN was developed by Sega who already has experience in rhythm games such as their recent Hatsune Miku series....

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...


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...

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

Rain (not to be confused with Heavy Rain) was a PS3 exclusive, download only game that caught my attention when I saw some news coverage of it on Japanese and Western sites alike. So, I decided to give it a try despite no playable demo beforehand. It turns out to be quite a short but pleasant adventure game. On a rainy day, a young boy catches...
