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

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. The background of the setting is that an alternate world exists, mirroring the real world. Killed by

Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls

Superdimension Neptune vs. Sega Hard Girls(SNvSHG) is is a RPG for the Vita where you play as the anthropomorphized representations of console systems & hardware. Combined from two different series (Hyperdimension Neptunia & Sega Hard Girls) that follow the same basic premise of hardware themed characters, we finally see a

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

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

Gigantic breasted ninja running around trying to tear one another's clothes off? Must be time for another installment of Senran Kagura. This time, they're in their bathing suits most of the time. So how does one attack someone until they're down to just their bra and panties? Oddly enough, probably

Risk of Rain

A while back, I picked up Risk of Rain on Steam. I knew it was coming out for Vita and PS4, so I didn't play too much of it on my PC as I really felt it would fit the Vita quite well. Turns out that, while it does work

Trillion: God of Destruction

A while back I came to the realization that I really don't like rogue-likes or dungeon crawlers. Then a few days ago, Idea Factory sent me a review copy of Trillion. Trillion is a game where you must kill a boss with a trillion hit points. There is a lot

Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

On the surface, LOH:TOCS may seem like a traditional JRPG, but it's really a sweet love story of an unworthy noble and his love affair with a delusional, undignified, working class poor boy. On a serious note, the game is easily summed up as one part Persona 3/4, one part

Amnesia: Memories

So, I'm a girl named Heather...or maybe my name is Amber...or was it Rebecca? Ever since this damn bug-boy crashed into my brain, I can't remember a damn thing! There sure are a bunch of girly boys here who seem to be willing to help me figure it out. And
