Persona 5 Delayed Until April

Persona

Delays are an odd thing that have the ability to inspire very mixed emotions.  On the one hand, a delay can be very good for a game in the long wrong.  Shigeru Miyamoto famously said, “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.”  There is some truth to this, as several classic games were heavily ...

Stella Glow is the swan song of Japanese game developer imageepoch. Even if their name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve probably played one of their games – they’re the ones behind the Luminous Arc series [DS], Yoshi’s New Island, the Criminal Girls series [PSP/Vita], and other cool games like Black Rock Shooter: The Game [PSP] and Time and Eternity [PS3]. Unfortunately, imageepoch shut down earlier ...

Kanamin (18)

The Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series has a high standard to uphold. The core games of the series have all been incredibly solid RPGs, and even the fighting spin-off games have been fantastic. Needless to say, expectations for Persona 4: Dancing All Night are pretty high. Don’t worry, though – Dancing All Night not only meets those expectations, but smashes them completely and ...

dt2-screen6

It’s surprising that Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library and the Monster Seal made it outside of Japan, since most of its predecessors are unknown to anyone but the most hardcore fans of Japanese game publisher Aquaplus (or the developer Leaf). In 1997, Aquaplus released  To Heart, a visual novel targeted exclusively at adults. In 2004, To Heart 2 released to a larger ...

Lost Dimension Review – Lost and Found

LD Screens (3)

Lost Dimension is a unique title. Developed by Lancarse and published by ATLUS, the game is a tactical strategy JRPG for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
