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...


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...


Xenoblade Review

In the world of Xenoblade, there were two gods - one of machine and one of flesh once locked in an seemingly endless battle. After their battle came to an end, lifeforms appeared on each of these dormant gods and a brand new war began between living creatures and machine. When Shulk's home Colony-9 is attacked, killing many of the...


Falcom Reveals Their First Fighter and New Sora no Kiseki RPG

Falcom must really love their "Sora no Kiseki" RPG setup because they are now working on a fourth title for the PSP! There's not much information regarding this new title named "Zero no Kiseki" at the moment other than teaser screenshots and that the protagonists are named Loyd Bannings and Elly McDowell. Apparently these characters...


Dragon Age Origins Awakening Expansion Review

Just 3 months after Bioware released their D&D Dragon Age Origins game, they release a brand new expansion pack and hints the true sequel will follow next year in 2011. Not a bad thing... As long as the game's quality remains more or less the same. In "The Awakening", you're now the Warden-Commander who is out to re-establish the Order of...


Dragon Age Origins Review

You start off the game by creating your character which means selecting a race, gender and a class. I remember how I kept dying in Baldurs Gate and ended up giving up on the game but now I know how to play, I enjoy the streamlined battle system where you can customise your party members skills and pause to issue out commands while...


Persona 3 Portable Review

Atlus has released a second remake of their popular RPG Persona 3. Dubbed Persona 3 Portable, the game is based on the first remake Persona 3 FES - The Journey, and brings over all the improvements Persona 4 had to the game system  but the biggest change is - Catering for the female fans by bringing in a new Heroine that you can choose to...


Hilarious P3P Trailer Commentary, Name Those Tracks

It's looking like I'm writing about nothing but P3P on this blog lately but never mind... The female version of "Master of Tartarus" rocks but I still like the male version's style too. As for the S. Link track "Joy", I think I prefer the cool male version instead of the newer lively female version. Aside from the updates above, we have...


Azusa Akido Goes Over A List of P3P Changes

Azusa Kido who was responsible for the fusion system in P3/P4, joins the direction team in P3P and goes over a long list of the new and improved features in this port. Liking the changes so far but cloning skill cards... Wonder if that means people can spam moves. There will probably be a limit as to how many times you can visit the shrine to...


P3P Heroine Visits P4's Town Inaba

So, I was partly right that Yuko and Miyamoto were indeed meeting outside a room during their school trip but not in Kyoto - It's in Inaba! By choosing to play as the Heroine, you will visit Inaba two years before Persona 4 and meet Yukiko who is still just a junior high student. This happens late summer during August instead of November...
