NieR: Automata

NieR: Automata's characters sure look wild

NieR: Automata doesn't even have a release date, but Platinum Games and Square are doing a good job of getting me excited for it regardless. In addition to some new screens, there's a new character-centric video up from a recent livestream ...

Valkyrie Profile's prequel is sorta out now

Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin, the prequel to the Tri-Ace's classic RPG Vaklyrie Profile, is now available for mobile phones and tablets. Well, it sort of is. You know, in a way. Let me explain. Square Enix released the game via Japan'...

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

PSN's Golden Week sale has deals on Gravity Rush, Yakuza 5, and Digimon

It's for the best that I'm preoccupied with Dark Souls III (new game++ and the continued grind for Darkmoon items, here I come!) and testing my luck in Alienation's hardcore mode. Otherwise, I'd be inclined to stock up on a bunch of titles ...

Blizzard responds to the vanilla WoW server 'Nostalrius' shutdown

The fan-run vanilla World of Warcraft server Nostalrius gained enough attention that Blizzard took notice and issued a cease and desist earlier this month, prompting its shutdown. Predictably, that move has led to even more support for the ...

That Persona 5 countdown? Now we know what it's for

Atlus  heard you like countdowns, so they put a countdown in your countdown. Yep, a few days ago we got wind that Atlus was planning something for Persona 5. Perhaps it was a date reveal at one point. But oh no, before it went live, so...

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback

I regretfully have not played Super Mario RPG, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be so revered as a classic had Nintendo followed Square's initial pitch, which included Mario riding a horse, wearing a cape, and holding a sword. It'd just be...

 
Divinity OS 2 PvP
If I had to make a list of things that I wouldn't care to have in Divinity: Original Sin 2, a PvP mode would probably be at the top of that list. But you know what? It was actually pretty good! The PAX demo for Divinity was a...   read

Battleborn DLC could give hints for Borderlands 3

We're on the cusp of the release of Battleborn, Gearbox's hobby-grade meta-growth shooter. Since it's still an unproven IP and Gearbox's other releases have been less than stellar, the game most on the mind of the people in the room at...

 
I am Setsuna preview
As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obviou...   read

First peek at the Valkyrie Profile prequel

For the past week, Square Enix has been teasing Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin, a prequel to Tri-Ace's classic PlayStation 1 role-playing game Vaklyrie Profile for the mobile phones and tablets. Of course, it's been a drip feed. Th...

When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

Meet Valkyria: Azure Revolution's Five Grave Sinners

While I am still somewhat bummer that the Valkyria Chronicles spinoff, Valkyria: Azure Revolution, is more action-RPG than strategy RPG, well, there is no "but" or "while." I'm still bummed. A combination of an update of Sega's official gam...

Atlus brings the Performa in latest Tokyo Mirage Sessions trailer

The Witcher 3's Blood & Wine DLC looks dreamy

I know people who are anticipating the next Witcher 3 expansion, Blood & Wine, more than just about anything else on the docket for this year (which is exactly how I am with Souls add-ons, so, I get it). Sometimes, it's easy to forget h...

 
Dark Souls III tips
Call me bad, but I actually found Dark Souls III a little harder than Dark Souls II and Bloodborne at first blush. Maybe I was just rusty, but my first few hours with the game were brutal. It took me more tries than I'd care ...   read

Dark Souls III gets the Mythbusters treatment

YouTuber DefendTheHouse is at it again in the test lab. This time, Dark Souls III is on the slab. Can you parry giant pots back at those saw guys in the Undead Settlement? Can Mimics be tamed? Can a Young White Branch work as well as a...

Is Persona 5's release date incoming? Suspicious countdown arrives

So, Persona 5 guys? Maybe if we're lucky we'll see it in our lifetime?Just kidding. I mean, Atlus gets way too much guff for its lengthy design process. A powerhouse series like Persona has so many moving parts, and if they need a ton ...

Nintendo isn't doing the translation for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE in-house

I figured YIIK: A Postmodern RPG was out by now and I had just missed it, but it looks like Ackk Studios is targeting a summer 2016 release for its strange, late-'90s-set, "Japanese-style" role-playing title. Extra time for another round o...
