Review: Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash

From the very moment I began at the title screen, this game would echo questions through my mind. I'd question the mental construct of "life or hometown"? The dilemma of who is “best girl” and if love can truly bloom on the wet-...

Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

Ys Seven travels to PC on August 30

Is it just me, or is XSEED on a roll with their Falcom PC games? From the looks of it, I answered my own question since Ys Seven hits Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store on August 30. While I missed out on the original PSP game, I messed ...

Ys Seven is getting washed ashore on PC this Summer

Back when XSEED Games announced Trails of Cold Steel I and II for PC, I was hoping for them to could give Falcom's other Sony console-exclusive titles the same treatment. At the end of their Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection stre...

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...

Oh boy, Akiba's Beat's English dub is atrocious

Here I was starting to think people take game roles more seriously when this new Akiba's Beat story trailer came along and slapped me in the face. Its predecessor, Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed, also had a pathetic English dub, but si...

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 ...

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...
