Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun.

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then
by Steven Hansen

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.

Review: Abyss Odyssey photo
Review: Abyss Odyssey
by Alasdair Duncan

One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while the studio's follow-up title, Rock of Ages, combined Super Monkey Ball with a Monty Python-esque romp through classical history. 

Abyss Odyssey is the studios' third original title and again, its setting is unique from anything else I've seen in videogames. The structure of the game different, too -- a combination of procedurally-generated levels, 2D platforming, intricate combat systems and online, community-driven progression. It doesn't always fit these elements together seamlessly but when it does, Abyss Odyssey still has that "just one more go" factor.
