So it's more Atelier Shallie footage you want

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea releases in Japan next week, and Gust has seen fit to provide another glimpse of the PS3 role-player prior to the July 17 launch. It looks and sounds just lovely. The music, in particular, tugs at my heartstrings. I'm a sucker for a soulful Celtic refrain. Now if we could only get confirmation of a western release. That would be just swell.

Find some solidarity in this new Dragon Age: Inquisition 'Stand Together' trailer

Honestly, I'm a little lukewarm on Dragon Age: Inquisition. The footage out of E3 2014 failed to impress, and I find myself joining The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's camp instead. But this trailer piqued my interest in a strange wa...

Have a Persona Q E3 trailer to balance out the gruff and guns

I woke up at 4 in the morning, got on a plane, got to LA, and went straight to the press room with my luggage (too early for hotel check in) and then we started covering Microsoft's press conference. Watching this adorable Persona Q trailer was a nice breather. Don't forget to breathe.

Acaratus brings robots onto the tactical RPG battlefield

There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take plac...

Hashtag all filters: Akiba's Trip 2 has a weird editor on PS4

Akiba's Trip 2 is being ported to PS4 in Japan in a couple months (we get it on PS3 and Vita in August) and Acquire has some videos full of swimsuits and bouncing breasts to show off (below). There's also a weird "visual editor" (above) that lets you change sky color and, for some reason, all color. I get the Instagram "vintage" filter, but what's with the EVERYTHING IS GREEN filter?

Akiba's Trip 2 acquires a flashy PlayStation 4 trailer

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed is a game where you, erm, beat the clothes of vampires. You see, their skin is weak to sunlight, so forcibly removing their clothes makes perfect sense actually. Earlier this year, XSEED ...

First look at Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea in action

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea is the sixteenth installment in Gust's longstanding RPG series, and, by the looks of things, it's shaping up quite nicely. Don't believe me? Go on and take a look at the title's debut trailer if you haven't already. Yeah, this game is absolutely gorgeous.  It's launching on July 17 in Japan and will hopefully come to western shores soon after.
