BlazBlue: Central Fiction arrives in North America today, bringing fresh mechanics and a host of new fighters to Arc System Works’ unique fighting game series. What’s it’s not bringing, for the first time ever, is an English voice cast, and that’s very unfortunate.
We’ve run through Pokémon Mystery Dungeons, Chocobo Mystery Dungeons and even Gundam Mystery Dungeons. Released today for the PlayStation Vita, Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is just like those, only without the licensed characters.
People who pre-ordered the bonus edition of Zero Time Dilemma, which comes with a game and a watch, are finding themselves with neither game nor watch thanks to a snafu that has some fans fuming. After all, what’s the point of pre-ordering if you don’t get the game on time?
On Tuesday, publisher Aksys Games will release Zero Time Dilemma, the third and perhaps final entry in the Zero Escape series. You probably fall into one of two camps: Either you’re breathlessly counting down the days until then, or you’ve never played Zero Escape.
Pitting the player against a docile computer-controlled character is a fine tutorial mechanic, but it’s not very exciting. Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator has a bit more fun with fighting fundamentals.
Today in San Francisco, director Kotaro Uchikoshi and the rest of the team behind Zero Escape 3: Zero Time Dilemma revealed a bunch of new details for the upcoming adventure game. Which is crazy-exciting news for those of us who have played and fallen in love with 999 and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.
Zero Escape Volume 3 was announced today at the Aksys Games Panel at Anime Expo in LA. They’re aiming for a summer 2016 release on 3DS and Vita, and Western localizations are being produced simultaneously with the Japanese version. This, by the way, is something I’m excited about. Like, sincerely. No joke!
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- would be the prettiest sprite-based 2D fighter I've played, only those aren't sprites. ARC System Works' tricksy polygon work results in a game that has to be seen running 60 frames per second at 1080p.
Last week, in a heartbreaking series of tweets, game director Kotaro Uchikoshi wrote that he hasn't been able to greenlight the third planned game in his Zero Escape series. The numbers just haven't worked out.
Hot off the heels of Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, my favorite game of 2012, niche publisher Aksys has just announced Sweet Fuse: At Your Side, another Japanese visual novel.
The people behind Virtue's Last Reward can't seem to figure out how to patch a save-erasing bug that affects the 3DS version of the Japanese visual novel.
To describe why Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward was my favorite game of 2012 is to describe why I fell in love with games in the first place.
It's called Ragnarok Tactics, and it's a tactical role-playing game set in the world of Ragnarok Online. Trailer's above.
Late Saturday night, I finally finished Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, the game that's been keeping me up every night for the past two weeks. I clocked 26 hours and 20 minutes. It was fantastic.
Aksys has confirmed that Amazon customers can now re-order Virtue's Last Reward and get the pre-order bonus.
A pre-order mix-up has left a number of gamers upset at both retailer Amazon and Aksys Games, the publisher behind the great adventure game Virtue's Last Reward.
I wrote a bit yesterday about Virtue's Last Reward, the fantastic adventure game that has been keeping me up every night for the past week and a half.
Last Tuesday, I went to bed at around 10:30pm, hoping to get a decent amount of sleep. Maybe I'd wake up early, go for a run before breakfast. You know, try to be a human being.
I don't know how Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors slipped under so many peoples' radars. Maybe it was bad timing. Or that funky name.
When I think about all the role-playing games released in Japan that never make their way to U.S. shores, I like to picture a snarling dragon sitting atop a pile of game cartridges, spitting fire at anyone who comes within breathing distance.
