Persona Q: Watch Koromaru summon his own Persona

Two new Persona Q trailers have been released by Atlus Japan today. They feature characters Kanji and Koromaru. In the latter you'll see the handsome little red eyed Shiba battle and even summon his own persona. He's so cute. Barooooo! The Kanji trailer is good, but it's not nearly as cute. You'll find his below. [Thanks to pepsimangb for the subtitles]

Impressions: Shin Megami Tensei

I've drained my iPhone's battery a few dozen times playing Shin Megami Tensei ($5.99, iPhone, available now) these past few weeks, so I felt it was time to weigh in with my impressions on this vintage role-playing game.

Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls photo
Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
by Chris Carter

After the classic that was Diablo II, expectations for a follow-up were at an all-time high. Although it could never really meet those expectations, Diablo III was a fine hack and slash, and I ended up replaying it time and time again with every possible class.

But it wasn't perfect of course, since loot was designed around the ill-fated and ill-designed Auction House, putting a damper on long-term gear goals. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls may not reinvent the wheel, but it eliminates many of the problems from DIII proper.

And most importantly, the Auction House is gone all around!

Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight photo
Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight
by Chris Carter

Nippon Ichi Software is one hell of a developer. One day they could be lighting the world on fire with one of the most celebrated games in a genre (Disgaea), and the next, they could be milking a franchise into oblivion (Disgaea Infinite). Strategy RPGs are their forte, but they've made 2D platformers, action-RPGs, and a whole lot more.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight is their latest, and it's basically an amalgamation of everything they've learned so far -- which is both good and bad.
