Review: Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku!

I have hit a wall with Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! No, not a progression wall forcing me to grind my way through poorly designed stages just to move on. I hit that hours ago. The wall I am currently at the base of is the “care wa...

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony comes west in September

At the NIS America event in San Francisco, Danganronpa director Kazutaka Kodaka joked that he was jealous of how well Ace Attorney and Persona sell, but I bet there's some truth behind that. His latest Saw meets Ace...

Review: Disgaea 2 PC

Despite sinking many hours into strategy RPGs (SRPGs) as a kid, I've never had a chance to play the Disgaea series. I've seen buddies play it and have casually followed the games as an onlooker, but the timing and console exclusivity n...

NIS gets creepy with new teaser

These days, Japanese games being creepy usually has more to do with upskirts than spooks. Fatal Frame couldn't even get squeezed into Nintendo's E3 event. Still, very-anime publisher and developer Nippon Ichi recently uploaded this "New Ti...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary

No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" in Japanese. Whatever personal peculiarities led the team at Nippon...
