Dragon's Crown looks beautiful on a PS4 Pro

Dragon's Crown would look great on an original PlayStation. Okay so it might not have the same fidelity, but VanillaWare has been making beautiful games since the '90s (when most of the team was at Atlus creating Princess Crown), and this w...

Vanillaware's 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has my attention

Vanillaware and Atlus have teamed up for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, "a departure from the studio's traditional fantasy style." While I still can't pin this one down after watching the TGS 2017 trailer -- more gameplay would've helped! -- it h...

Review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

There are very few games that grab me based on the box art, but I can recall digging Odin Sphere out of a bargain bin (!) so many years back, both my wife and I's mouths agape after picking it up. A Valkyrie, a brooding warrior, a bunny, a ...

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is a delight on the Vita

Up until last week, I had been getting all of my Vita love with the PlayStation TV. It's a great little device that helped introduce me to a plethora of games I'd never considered playing before. But I'm a restless person that hates being t...

This new art from Vanillaware is anything but juvenile

I've been a big fan of George Kamitani's (of Vanillaware fame) work for quite some time. He's one of the most talented artists in the industry, and now, the developer has shared another work with us by way of his company's website. It'...

What is going on with this Dragon's Crown figure?

I'm almost at a loss for words other than to say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. The last Dragon's Crown Amazon figure (that I've seen, anyway) was over the top in ways you would expect given the source material, but that de...

Can I just...have Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir now?

I had the chance to check out Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir at TGS recently, and man was it fantastic. The art style absolutely holds up, and the framerate issues of the original (one of the only real problems) were completely fixed. It wa...

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is like a whole new game

Odin Sphere was one of the first games I played with my wife, and we had a perfect system. She would play a lot of the core areas during the day, and at night, I would plant seeds, gather food, and level up while she took a nap -- after wak...
