Review: Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4)

Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4)

They see me rollin'

There are some unusual mash-ups of game genres out there that are either smashing successes or faltering failures. There are RPG third-person shooters like Mass Effect, hack-‘n’-slash action RPGs such as Darksiders II, and then there’s something like Destiny, an MMORPG open world first-person…well, you get the gist of...

Get Those Trendy Specs On, Persona 5 Is Taking a Train West Next Year

Surprise we guess

The disappointment was almost palpable during Sony's PlayStation Experience event earlier today as Adam Boyes mentioned Persona 5, only to confirm that it is indeed coming to North America in 2015. And, er, that was about it. We didn't have any doubts that the highly anticipated RPG would make it West, but at least now it's set in...

Yosuke, Chie, and Kanji Get Their Groove On in This New Persona 4 Dancing All Night Trailer

Smooth moves

Just when you thought fan favourite tough guy Kanji Tatsumi couldn't possibly embarrass himself further, he appears in this new trailer for Persona 4 Dancing All Night sporting a dumb smile and some pretty hilarious moves. The buff blonde isn't alone, though, as he's joined by fellow dungeon-delvers Yosuke and Chie. All three persona...

SRPG Mythical Legend Tears to Tiara II: Hier to the Overlord Lands on PS3

Hamil Smash!

For fans of Japanese titles, there are always those of myth and legend; the games everyone has heard about, but very few mortal souls have seen them with their own eyes. The strategy RPG series Tears to Tiara falls into this bracket after never being released outside it's native country — that is, until now. Skipping a generation,...

Surprise! Persona 5 is Coming to PS4 After All

Plus, get a quick look at the game's cast

Ever since its initial reveal, Persona fans have been clawing at developer Atlus for a PlayStation 4 port of Persona 5. At first, the upcoming Japanese RPG was confirmed as a PS3 exclusive. Of course, that's no longer the case, as a new trailer that was shown at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference...

Our JRPG Heroes Duke it Out Once Again in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax's Newest Trailer

Round 2

Arguably one of the weirdest genre collisions of recent times returns with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. This free-for-all brawler created by Arc System Works of BlazBlue fame features its own unique storyline which ties into the Persona series. Featuring characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4, you can re-imagine battles that you could...

Review: Daylight (PlayStation 4)

Daylight (PlayStation 4)

Low battery life

Daylight is the procedurally generated horror game from Zombie Studios, the indie outfit best known for free-to-play first-person shooter Blacklight Retribution. It has the distinction of being the first game released using the new – and largely impressive – Unreal Engine 4, making this an attractive proposition for visual...

Rise Kujikawa Struts Off the Stage and into the Ring in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Please notice me senpai

Clearly not content with her life as a teen idol, Persona 4's dungeon navigator Rise Kujikawa will be taking her act away from the stage in the upcoming brawler, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Fans of the all singing all dancing love interest should be trembling at the mere thought of beating the snot out of Teddie with their...

Review: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Born to try

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is one of the strangest games that you’ll ever play. Its premise – which, in essence, revolves around mating – provides an odd starting point, but get past this and you’ll find a surprisingly enjoyable excursion that’s only really let down by repetition and some unnecessarily sexual...

Failed Kickstarter Citizens of Earth Is Destined to Save the World After All

We need you

Have you ever backed a Kickstarter only to have it fall short of its target goal, never to see the light of day? This was the fate that befell Citizens of Earth, an Earthbound-inspired RPG in which the vice president of the world must save the planet from destruction with the help of ordinary citizens. It seems that this game was...

PS4 Survival Horror Daylight Spares You of Scares Until End of April

Title's still coming for you

Those of you with weak knees will have no need to shake, rattle, and roll until the end of April, as Blacklight: Retribution developer Zombie Studios has delayed its procedurally generated PlayStation 4 survival horror Daylight until the end of April. In a decidedly unspooky message, a company representative pointed out...

Atlus Dismantles Hopes of Demon's Souls 2 on PS4

Don't rule it out just yet, though

From Software’s cult action role-playing game Demon’s Souls followed a more arduous path onto the PlayStation 3 than the characters depicted in its maddeningly masochistic campaign. Published by Sony in Japan, the platform holder actually passed on a Western release – a mistake which Worldwide Studios...

Persona 5 Brings Style to Western PS3s in 2015

Personify

Just as the relatively haunting and mysterious image of those empty chairs against that blood red background was starting to slip from memory, Atlus has unveiled Persona 5's official English website. Much like its Japanese counterpart, it states a clear and simple message: the game will be coming to Western PlayStation 3s in 2015. It...

Persona 4 Arena Sequel Delivers a Suplex to Importers

And it hurts

The Japanese language barrier can get in the way of a lengthy JRPG, but it's less problematic if you merely want to smash someone's head in. However, it seems that importers will have to wait a little longer for the uniquely named Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, as fans eagerly awaiting the sequel to Arc System Works' fighting...
