Review: 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

I’m a huge fan of incredibly dense, complex stories. Ones that require active thinking from the reader to keep track of them, as they weave multiple narratives together. Ones that keep me thinking of them long after I’ve put down the book or controller, putting pieces of it together in my head.

Review: Catherine: Full Body

The original Catherine made waves when it came out with its unflinching approach to confronting the uncomfortable issues surrounding love and lust. Sure, there were plenty of games where sex happened, or where romance played a key role in the plot, but very few dealt with the consequences sex has, or dealt with the more stressful parts of maintaining a relationship. It asked the players themselves about how they felt concerning relationships.

Quick-Look: Etrian Odyssey Nexus

Etrian Odyssey Nexus kicked my ass. I’d love to say, as a video game reviewer, that I am a master that can crush any game that comes my way, but, alas, that would be a complete lie. There’s still some series and genres that I can never really hope to get a firm grasp on, whether due

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse

A Fresh Pair of Eyes Perspective is a major topic when it comes to both creating the setting of and experiencing a story. In the vast majority of storytelling mediums, the reader/viewer/player experiences the world of the story through the eyes of a written character or group. As such, the perspective of these characters is

Review: Persona 4: Dancing All Night

New Yet Strangely Familiar Spinoffs are an interesting beast. You have a franchise that’s a hit with the public, and they keep asking for more. Maybe, though, you’re more interested in moving on to something else. Or, perhaps, you have a story or set of characters that you’re not ready to let go of yet.

Review: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight

Battle On! Gaming is quite a divisive hobby. For just about any aspect of it, you can find two groups of people that have fiercely different opinions. Call of Duty vs Battlefield. PCs vs consoles (and by extension, keyboard & mouse vs controllers). WRPG vs JRPG. Console wars. Perhaps its due to the natural competitiveness games offer

Review: Lost Dimension

Hide And Seek The “traitor in your midst” is a very common trope in storytelling. It is a simple way to add suspense to almost any kind of story. In more passive entertainment media, such as in books or television, the use of this trope is a way to get its audience to be a

Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker

Explode into Popularity The Shin Megami Tensei series of games is probably, right now, the most popular RPG series that nobody I know has ever heard of. OK, perhaps that’s a bit hyperbolic, but this series doesn’t really seem to have broken through that barrier to “mainstream.” I mean, there’s a good chance that even your

Review: Etrian Mystery Dungeon

The Rogue Wanderer In a past review of mine, I discussed a bit about the Roguelike genre. Feel free to take a look back at that for a quick overview. Today, I want to narrow it down a bit. Specifically, I wanted to talk about a certain well-known series in the Roguelike genre. That series
