A lot of people were upset after NIS America announced it had "edited certain aspects" of Criminal Girls: Invite Only for Western release. The "c" word (censorship) was thrown around nobly as it always seems to be w...

Review: Monster Monpiece

Too often, unique and engaging games are passed over due to their risqué content and gimmickry, and Monster Monpiece is inevitably one that will fall victim to this curse. It's not difficult to see why some may be turn...

NIS takes us to an island paradise, battles us, then travels back in time

NIS was a bit of a hidden treasure at E3. The publisher shared a booth with Atlus and it took me stopping and actually looking at what was on display at the demo station to put two and two together. The search was well worth it because I was rewarded with a closer look at three upcoming titles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, and Natural Doctrine.

Yukiko & Yosuke get Persona 4 Ultimax trailers

The Japanese box art for Persona 4 Ultimax is real good

This is the official box art for the Japanese release of Persona 4 Ultimax. It's pretty great, even with the best characters (Mitsuru and Chie) getting teeny billing. That Yul Brynner chest pose though.
