Godzilla: Walking in the shoes of the king of monsters

Fun fact. When I was a child, my mother sat me down in front of Godzilla films and subsequently burned them into my brain. As a result, I ended up learning Japanese and moving to Japan as an adult. It's not a stretch to say that I'm where I...   read

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD plays as well as ever

I adored Final Fantasy Type-0 when it first released on the PSP in Japan a few years back. It took me a whopping 75 hours to clear the game my first time, and while it undoubtedly had its fair share of problems (weird RTS sections, poor gro...   read

Monster Hunter 4 is a fast and ferocious beast

It's hard to describe just how popular Capcom's Monster Hunter series really is over here in Japan. It's no small feat considering how hardcore the games actually are. I find it fascinating that they've managed to find such mainstream succe...   read

TGS: Phantasy Star Online 2 on the Vita is a great fit

I've put somewhere around 70 hours into the PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2. Despite being free to play, it's a fun and complex multiplayer title that's been getting a steady stream of updates since release. Having played since the Jap...   read

Preview: Persona 4: Arena reaches out to the truth

Released in arcades on March 1 here in Japan, Persona 4: Arena is a game I'm not sure anyone could have ever anticipated. Marrying the popular JRPG franchise with Arc System Works' fighting game prowess, you'd be forgiven for thinking that ...   read
