3DS: Stella Glow (small review)


Image: http://rpgsite.s3.amazonaws.com/images/images/000/037/118/original/SGCoverRGB3_high.jpg

Stella Glow is a SRPG / tactics RPG released for the 3DS. This was the last game developed by the now-bankrupt Imageepoch (with Sega publishing after the declare for bankruptcy) but was picked up by Atlus for localization and publication. It was released in Japan on June 4 2015, and localized for America on November 17 2015. It will be released in Europe sometime in Spring 2016.

Stella Glow can be considered as a successor to the Luminous Arc series (also made by Imageepoch) as it brings in recurring elements such as magic, witches, a big cast of colourful and quirky characters, enjoyable music, a similar style of gameplay and a long story. The game doesn’t use the same style of graphics and battle animations as the LA games anymore (as we are NOW IN THE FUTURE) but rather chibi-styled character models and transitions for battle animations.

Review : Luminous Arc INFINITY

Luminous Arc INFINITY | Cero C | FELISTELLA | Marvelous | PSVITA

Luminous Arc INFINITY, is the 4th game of Luminous Arc series, transcending into PSVITA the first time, as its previous games are available for Nintendo DS. This game is also developed by FELISTELLA, unliked the previous 3 titles, which were developed by Imagepooch. Like the rest of Luminous Arc games, it’s heavily influnced by the word magic, witches, and lapis. Luminous Arc INFINITY was released on 6th August 2015 in Japan. No words on western localization so far.

christmas 2015 keviries

Anyway sorry for the lack of post but we have some reviews coming soon! My vita was stolen during vacation so I can’t play many games :/ I have Persona 4 Dancing All Night and Sora no Kiseki SC Evolution to keep me company but unfortunately no vita = no games. I’m still available via steam and I’m just too lazy to play PS3 anymore. Maybe because I’ve been away from it for such a long time? xD

I hope you like sticking with this blog and we hope 2016 will get better for life and games. I mean Persona 5 and FFXV anyone? haha

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Generation Review

2015-07-01-231057“It’s time to Nep-Nep like it’s 1989!”

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3 V Generation (PS Vita) is the remake of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory which was released on the PS3 in 2012. It was the last game in the PS3 trilogy and arguably the best one due to its more polished gameplay and presentation, good usage of both new and old characters and its fair amount of content to mess around with.
V Generation is the final game in the Re;Birth trilogy and the 5th HDN game OVERALL to be localised and released in the time frame of 1 year. (Re;Birth 1 came out in August 2014, Re;Birth 2 in January 2015, Noire in February, Action Unleashed in May, then this.)
The game was developed by Felistella while Compile Heart and Idea Factory both contributed to the production and publication of the game. Idea Factory International was responsible for the localization.

The release dates for this game are as follows:

  • Japan: 18th December 2014
  • NA / EU: 30th June 2015 / 3rd July 2015 respectively

Re;Birth 3 comes with a lot of tweaks and changes to the overall game system while also experimenting with some different ideas as well. For me, it feels like it came to the point where it really feels more like a remake than an enhanced port this time around. Does this all work out though? Are these changes a good thing or should they had just stayed true to the original formula seen in the previous games?

“Do you have the power? Are you the one?”

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is a RPG for the 3DS. The game was developed and published by Marvelous, with XSEED games assisting in the publication. The release dates:

  • Japan: October 2nd 2014
  • NA / EU: June 2nd / 4th 2015, respectively.

The game consists of simulation elements found in games like Persona, Fire Emblem Awakening and Luminous Arc, in which chatting with the party members outside battle creates friendship levels. By doing this, they can learn new skills and the player can witness their events and mini-stories. The game also has a battle system similar to Valkyria Chronicles.

Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed Review

2015-05-20-122329
(Never mind the watermark. It appears for every screenshot you take of the game.)

Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed is the third spin-off game in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, the others being Producing Perfection and Hyperdevotion Noire. It is a hack and slash type of game. It was developed by Tamsoft (Senran Kagura) while Compile Heart published it. Idea Factory International, as usual, handled the localization.

  • Release date for Japan: 28th August 2014
  • Release date for NA and EU: May 19th and May 22nd 2015 respectively.

This is HDN’s take on the Dynasty Warriors / Musou style of gameplay mixed with elements from the Senran Kagura games such as clothes ripping. Does it work out? Is the game worth playing?

Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy small review


Image: http://thevitalounge.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/fh.jpg

Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy is an hack-n-slash RPG for the PS Vita that was released on December last year by Arc System Works. I pretty much brought this on a whim during the Golden Week sale that happened this week (April 29th to May 5th) for under $10 US (normally $15 US). What I got though was not that bad of a game for that price.

Review : Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth | Cero B | Namco Bandai Games | PSVITA

Digimon Story : Cyber Sleuth is the first Digimon franchise game for PSVITA and released as a part of Digimon Adventure 15th Anniversary project.

Story

The story started in a forum chat with various avatars here and there, including the player. With Japan as the setting, technology has advanced and cyberspace pretty much took over here and there. There’s a rumor about a certain hacking program called Digital World and the avatars were talking about it. Suddenly a mascot called Nabit-kun visited them out of nowhere and threatened them that it will surprise and hack them if they visit EDEN, a cyberspace created by Kamishiro Corporation.  While some are afraid that they will got hacked, 3 people including the player decided to go and see it for themselves. From there we could choose the player, do you want it to be a girl or a boy. The set name for boy is Takumi (CV. Matsuoka Yoshitsugu), while the girl is Ami (CV. Ookubo Rumi). I choose the girl and let’s just call her Ami here for the sake of this review.
