When this was announced earlier this year, it was kinda overshadowed by the announcement of the upcoming ZHP game by NIS, since both games were announced at the same time and the trailer for ZHP was just so much more awesome. But it still looked fairly interesting, with its semi-8-bit/16-bit graphics and 8-bit music.
The game was called Classic Dungeon in japan, which I think is a better name… At least the title tells you it’s an RPG.
So let’s go right away and see if NIS has made another masterpiece!

While Record of Agarest War was just like Cross Edge in almost every way, this is another game I had up as this year’s candidate for “game that will have the same kind of reviews as Cross Edge”. Surprisingly enough, it seems like people were a bit more lenient on this one than they were with Cross Edge. Granted, it doesn’t suffer from as many problems as Cross Edge, but it’s still aiming at exactly the same audience.
I was interested in the game partly because of the Disgaea crossovers, but also because the gameplay seemed fairly solid. So I had some fairly good expectations for this.

The PS3 is a bit low on unique and exclusiveÂ RPGs, and Last Rebellion seems to be offering something really nice. Turn-based, using a completely unique battle system, and being one of the few PS3 exclusive RPGs, it seems to be made to please PS3 users.
So does Last Rebellion really offer something fun and unique to PS3 users looking for fun exclusive RPGs?
Read on and see!

This is a game that was supposed to come out last year. Just before release, it was suddenly delayed, and at the same time they announced that the game’s genre would change from an Action RPG to a traditional turn-based RPG. I’m not sure of the reason behind this choice, but after that I thought the game would never come. It did end up coming though.
So was it worth the wait, or should it have just been cancelled?

Originally developed by pretty much unknown developer Ride On, Nippon Ichi America brings us Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida, which was renamed “Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What did I do to deserve this?”. The fun 8-bit-looking graphics and the random title reminiscent of oldschool Batman reeled me in, and the possibly fun gameplay and concept (being the bad guy trying to kill heroes) made me quite interested.
This is Ride On’s third game. The first was a Darius port on GBA, and the other was a Beat ‘em Up featuring maids with guns(from the Simple 2000 series). Their track record is short and not very inspiring, but Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida definitely looks interesting.
So with an english demo out (there was a demo before on the japanese PSN), we can see if it’s actually any good.

I’m a bit late on this one, but here goes.
Disgaea was an incredible game on the PS2. Â Sporting cool 2D graphics, a great story, incredible characters, and really fun gameplay, it was a must-have on the PS2… Too bad it was basically ignored by the general populace.
This is the second incarnation of the game on handheld consoles. It was on the PSP last year, and now it’s released on the technologically inferior Nintendo DS.
Can the DS handle the awesomeness? Or does the DS’ limitations make the game lame?
