Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II

I wanted to talk about this game the minute I started playing it, but I knew a lot of people had just gotten into the first game to play them in order. Since it's nearly impossible to talk about this game without discussing the ending of the first, I decided

Atelier Shallie Plus

Atelier Shallie Plus is a handheld version of Atlelier Shallie with all of the DLC packed in, much like all the previous "Plus" versions of the Atelier games have done. I have not played the console version of Shallie or any other Atelier games, so my review is based entirely

BlazBlue: Central Fiction

As the fourth entry in the Blazblue series, Central Fiction grants access to over thirty playable characters, several modes with upgraded features, and a story section that brings a grand conclusion to its very intricate plot. This iteration of Blazblue is unlike the rest, in perhaps, a good way for

Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky

Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, published by Aksys games is an interesting take on the traditional JRPG gameplay formula, being a hybrid platformer and RPG, attempting to mix elements of both.

Ninja Usagimaru: The Mysterious Karakuri Castle

King of Fighters 14

When the first trailer for KOF14 was released, there was a strong reaction in the gaming community as most people said it looked like a Playstation 2 game. SNK assured fans that it was still early on and that it would be much better looking in the final build. Trailer

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Originally released on the PS2 half a year after the PS3 came out, Odin Sphere launched with much fanfare. It's music, art direction, and gameplay was just what everyone needed at the time. 2D beat-em-ups had all but gone the way of the dodo, but Vanillaware showed us that we

Mighty No. 9

After numerous delays, and 3 years of development, Mighty No. 9 has finally released to the public. As you may know, I was extremely excited for this game, and even backed it. It's been a long time since a new Mega Man game was released, and that's why the Kickstarter
