Trails of Cold Steel 1, 2 are finally PC-bound

When I search for headers, I Google the name in Japanese to get unique screens (but that's my secret; don't tell anyone else). What came up for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold 2 was a lot of romancin'. Like those heroines, the PC ...   read

Pre-order Akiba's Beat in Europe, get a neat gift

You may not be ripping clothes off of demons, but Akiba's Beat still looks like one of the better role-playing experiences in that mid/low-development budget range. Whereas many games, including Akiba's Trip, just give you a soundtrack...   read

Review: Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns

The first 15 hours of Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns may be the slowest first 15 hours of any game I’ve ever played. Some games I’ve played are over in half that time, but here it’s just the point where new elements final...   read

I created a black character in Trio of Towns. What happened next will shock you

I am several hours in the deliberately slow and joyful beginning of Story of Season: Trio of Towns, and while I’m having a pleasant time with the game, there is one oddity that continues to stick out like a sore thumb. As with previou...   read
