Review: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc photo
Review: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
by Wesley Ruscher

Adventure games enable developers to guide their audience on an incredibly focused journey. Completely scripted -- with little variation or user input that impacts the outcome -- they rely on the quality of their storytelling first and foremost. Gameplay is often used only to aid the method in which their madness is presented.  

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is an adventure game where madness excels. It’s a world where fear lurks around every corner and despondence has crept in; its narrative is full of uncertainty, mystery, and sadistic intent. Yet, its gameplay creates more than just a fly on the wall feeling -- even if you are living someone else’s story -- and is a must play for any fan of the genre or those who love a good "whodunit."

Review: The Guided Fate Paradox photo
Review: The Guided Fate Paradox
by Wesley Ruscher

One of the greatest things about video games is the opportunity they afford us to take on roles we'd normally never have the chance to do. For example, in The Guided Fate Paradox, the latest from the team that brought us the Disgaea: Hour of Darkness -- that job is to become a God.

While playing the God, or a god, is not new to the universe of gaming (Populous, Black & White, and ActRaiser to name a few) the way it is implemented by Nippon Ichi Software leads to quite the unusual set of circumstances and one hell of a good time.

A new Nippon Ichi action RPG is in the works

We know that Nippon Ichi are working on a new RPG, which is pretty much a given at any time as well as a huge 'no sh*t' kind of thing. But Dengeki PlayStation says its an action RPG. Maybe it's something like the upcoming The...

The Guided Fate Paradox headed west on November 5

Though NIS America's last title left much to be desired, I can't help but be overly optimistic for the release of The Guided Fate Paradox. Set to release November 5, the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive roguelike will be ava...

The story behind Time and Eternity's revolutionary look

When the PlayStation 1 and N64 came out and rough, polygonal, 3D character models became the norm, it took me a while to realize what was wrong. Playing certain games would creep into the uncanny. It took me a surprisingly lo...

Disgaea Dimension 2 gets a crazy new video

At this point, you know whether you're a Disgaea fan or not. If you're not, part of the reason may be the lack of a return to Laharl's classic tale in Hour of Darkness: which Disgaea Dimension 2 is fixing, seeing as it's a f...
