Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Review

Odin Sphere originally came out in 2007. It was immediately recognized as one of the best RPGs on PlayStation 2, and for good reason – the story, gameplay, and graphics were top tier for the time. Now, in 2016, we get a chance to revisit the world of Odin Sphere with Odin Sphere Leifthrasir from ...

Stella Glow Review – Music to My Ears

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]. ...

Originally announced for release towards the end of 2015, developer ATLUS has announced that the game will instead be released in ...

Dungeon Travelers 2 Review – A Rough Trip

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 ...

Lost Dimension Review – Lost and Found

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. Though the game looks and plays very well on both systems, I played most of the game on PlayStation Vita. On the surface, Lost Dimension looks a lot like other ...
