Where is my mind?
At a glance, it's easy to look at Mind Zero and compare it to the Persona series given its art style and the narrative advertised within early trailers and promotional materials. And you wouldn't be incorrect in declaring tha... read feature

Pull off strangers' clothes for fun and profit in Akiba's Trip


Who knew vampires like the taste of otaku?
Jun 13
Being an otaku has its drawbacks, chief among them apparently is that they're the favorite food of the "Synthisters," blood-sucking beings who walk in the daytime. Now, you, a newly-bitten Synthister, must fight back against ... read

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


Filter -> EVERYTHING GREEN
May 29
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? read

Persona-styled JRPG Mind 0 gets trailer


Where is my mind? Zero originality

Really, "Persona-styled" might be doing this game from Acquire and Class of Heroes developer Zerodiv a bit too much justice, because it reads like a knockoff. The cast is a group of highschoolers (not uncommon for a JRPG set... read
