In case you haven’t heard of Love Plus, it’s a DS dating sim game from Japan utilizing a real-time calendar for your digital girlfriend.

Apparently, it’s incredibly realistic, as an otaku just married one of Love Plus‘s main characters, Nene, in a Guam church.

The Shin Megami Tensei series is perhaps the next new big thing for JRPGs in America. Almost each installment released stateside has garnered critical success ever since they began to be released at frequent rate a few years ago with Shin Megami Tensei III.

A new game in the series with the most spinoffs ever (Digital Devil Saga and Persona, to name a few) is being released in America soon. I wonder how well this one will fare? It sounds pretty cool…

Bakugan and I have sort of an enigmatic history. I used to work at Target, in the toy department, and strangely, we never had Bakugan in stock. I’d work evenings, and every day I’d go in, I was told “we got Bakugan at 8AM, and they sold out in an hour”.

Intrigued, I took a morning shift just to figure out what in the world these mysterious best selling toy trinkets were. If you seek the answer, read on for my review of the hot new game! Read more… »

As of yesterday, Majesco snatched up the publishing rights to A Different Game’s (actual developing company name) Ghostwire: Link to the Paranormal.  You’re probably sitting at your computer thinking to yourself, “What’s with all this Hulabaloo?”

Normally, I’d probably skim through this press release going on about my day without ever thinking about what I’ve just read.  On the other hand, this game really caught my eye.  In respect to Halloween, maybe Ghostwire is finding a new way to scare the bejesus out of people? Read more… »

If you’re old enough, you probably remember one of the greatest role playing games of all time, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Developed by Squaresoft (now Square Enix), it combined the best of turn-based RPGs with the best of Mario to create a unique, undeniably fantastic experience.  Unfortunately, Nintendo has attempted to recreate the experience multiple times without the help of Square Enix.

Flash forward 13 years later, where Mario and Nintendo have tried their hand numerous times in the role playing genre, unable to completely recapture the magic of their Super Nintendo predecessor. However, major strides were made in classic Mario RPG ways, culminating with Nintendo’s most recent and simply quite amazing endeavor, Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story. Read more… »

[Reviewer's note: I suppose an explanation is in order for why a game released in June is being reviewed in October. To be honest, I bought the game upon release to review it, but I became seriously depressed after playing through the first half. It wasn't until about a week ago that I could bear to pick it up again and finally finish it. Read on to find out what kind of game can drive a man to depression.]

Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled is a desperate attempt to hearken back to the ‘glory days’ of the SNES era RPGs. Almost every facet of the game, from programming to art to game design, was worked on by three people who probably think back to the mid 90′s with wistful, romantic nostalgia.

It comes through plainly in the game, which seems to be a Frankenstein-esque fusion of Chrono Trigger‘s gameplay and Final Fantasy 6‘s general story progression. After all, if you take cues from the two best RPGs of the best RPG era ever, what could possibly go wrong? Right?
