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. Gameplay 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...


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...


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...


Catherine (PS3) Review, Atlus' First HD Title

Catherine is Atlus' first HD title from the Persona development team released for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. You could say it's a spin-off title based off a side character from one of their more popular franchises, Persona 3 Portable. Vincent Brookes is a 32 year old man being pressed into the dreaded question of marriage by his fiancé...


Valkyria Chronicles Review

In the very first title in Sega's Valkyria Chronicles series, it's the Second Europan War in the year 1935 and a conflict has broken out between the Atlantic Federation and Imperial Empire. A small neutral nation Gallia is caught up between the war for a resource known as "Ragnite" and now its people must help fend their homeland...


Last Ranker Review

Right, British slang joke aside... In the story of Last Ranker written by Kazushige Nojima (FFVII, FFVIII, FFX, Kingdom Hearts etc.), Zig is tired of following the seemingly pointless traditions in his home town of Gantala. Seeing no future in staying there, he decides to leave and enrol in the city's "Rankers", an organisation...


Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty Review

Been a long time since I played a decent RTS and I'm glad Blizzard's brought one back. I never really got into the story for the original game but, this first part of the trilogy Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty takes place 4 years after the events of the Brood Wars the first expansion pack. Jim Raynor is out to start a revolution to release...
