Review: Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception

"Utawarerumono" is a bit of a mouthful, even for folks who can speak Japanese, and probably even more so for those who can't. In fact, mispronouncing the title as "Underwater Ray Romano" was a big meme of the mid-2000s for a certain segment...   read

Review: The Caligula Effect

After about 40 hours playing The Caligula Effect, I can confirm to you, dear readers, that this JRPG has nothing to do with the legendary 1980 erotic historical drama Caligula. I would understand if you decided to stop reading now.   read

Oh dang, Persona 5 is getting a vinyl set

The next vinyl from iam8bit is a big one: Persona 5! It's such a good candidate that I can see it pushing people into game vinyl ownership for the first time -- assuming they have the money. There will be two sets, both of which will ship i...   read

Atlus has a slight change of heart regarding Persona 5 streaming

Along with restricting use of the PlayStation 4's built-in share feature for Persona 5, earlier this month Atlus issued harsh guidelines for folks who still intended to stream the game or upload footage. It was the kind of thing reviewers w...   read

PSA: Persona 5's free swimsuit DLC is out now

If you're knee deep in Persona 5 but feel like you haven't accomplished much yet, I feel you. It's a long ass video game, made even longer when you're compelled to re-run dungeons to level up and wander around Tokyo aimlessly trying to cour...   read

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...   read

The Caligula Effect stays soft with bundled DLC bikinis

When The Caligula Effect creeps out this May 2, you won't be able to get a physical edition. Even Limited Run Games tried to make it happen, but were not successful. On the bright side, it will cost $39.99, €39.99, or £...   read

Sharing or no sharing, Persona 5 brings the memes

Atlus may have effectively banned in-depth streaming for Persona 5, but that won't stop people from turning arguably the most anticipated JRPG of the last few years into a meme machine.  In the few days since the game's release, in fac...   read

Are you pissed at some of the recent streaming restrictions from publishers?

Right before launch, it was revealed that Atlus and/or Sega were implementing strict guidelines when it came to streaming Persona 5. This wasn't a "you should probably do this" type of thing either -- they were threatening to hit channels ...   read

Some fans are pissed about Persona 5's localization

Localizing a game is no easy task, especially a game like Persona 5. It's a good game, but also a huge one, and localizing it was apparently a mammoth undertaking for Atlus USA. With reportedly 50% more dialogue in its script compared ...   read

Atlus has strict capture and streaming guidelines for Persona 5 players

As you may have heard or discovered first-hand, Persona 5 restricts access to the PlayStation 4's share feature, a move Atlus says has to do with the "single-playthrough story" and a fear of spoilers. Today, the company elaborated on its ga...   read

On the eve of Persona 5, are you a Shin Megami Tensei or Persona person?

Ah, the age old question -- Shin Megami Tensei or Persona. Well maybe not "age old," as the original Persona was introduced in 1996, four years after SMT -- it's barely two decades old. But right around Persona 3 is where I starte...   read

Persona 5 has a hard block on screenshot and video capture

Easy-to-use, baked-in game capture functionality is one of the best aspects of this console generation. Taking screens and video or even streaming a game can be a mere button press away, and I've grown so accustomed to the feature on PS4, X...   read

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...   read
