Omocat is a stellar artist and kindred spirit, and she's responsible for some excellent art and a particularly badass jacket that I want to wear. She's also hard at work creating a beautifully surreal game known as Omori via Kickstarter that's already hit its funding goal, but you should probably go ahead and toss some money the project's way anyway. For science.

Omori channels the best of worlds like Space Funeral and EarthBound with its bizarre imagery and whimsical narrative, and it looks like it's right up my alley. That game I like is going to come back in style. Perhaps the biggest reason I feel so drawn to Omori is its altered "traditional" RPG concepts, where the battle system contains states "based off real human emotions and conditions." If done correctly, that could be so, so good. I ache for it to work out, because alternative ideas like this really tickle my fancy.

Omori is illustrated by Omocat, with a soundtrack from Slime Girls and Space Boyfriend. Don't know about you, but it looks like something I need. Give it a look and let me know if you're ravenously interested as well.

Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was an intelligent riff on the perils of high school -- you know, if you had thrown a murder mystery in between classes and the principal was a maniacal stuffed animal. Its sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, takes a beleaguered trope and turns it on its head. This is one "trapped on a desert island" story that takes things to another level entirely.more

Sign me up for 3DS RPG Legend of Legacy

Legend of Legacy sounded pretty good on paper. Honestly, I'm easy ; they had me at '3DS RPG' already. But look at it! Look at that pop-up environmental effect! That music!  Watercolors! Shading! Big heads! The games' &n...more

Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers

In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? (Yes. That's exactly what it is.)more
