Higurashi: When they Cry Chapter 1 Onikakushi Visual Novel Review and Chapter 2 Higurashi Watanagashi Preorder Announcement

MangaGamer just sent out an email that says Higurashi Chapter 2: Watanagashi will be available for preorder “this” month. Since there are only 8 days left in this month, it must be sometime soon. With this exciting news, I thought I should review the first chapter of Higurashi for those who have not played it yet.

Gameplay: 1/10: Higurashi is a kinetic novel. This means that unlike other types of visual novels, there are absolutely no choices which you, the player, makes through the game. Click and read, Click and read, Click and read… One story, one end, one “path” — That’s it. It’s little more, than a story with some pictures and a soundtrack. read more

Churbles Zelda Inspired Action RPG with Cute Anime Style Hamsters

Churbles – Adorable Zelda-Like Action RPG with Anime Style Hamsters

Note: This is only a Preview. I’ve no hands on experience with this game; I just wanted to make my readers aware of this adorable little indie title. It is still in development, and no “public” beta test will be held – they are only allowing those who backed their now closed Kickstarter campaign to test the game. So the rest of us will have to wait. When it releases, it will be a cross platform game available on all current gen systems including PC, PS4, Xbone, and WiiU.

Konami Rumors | Konami Stops Development of AAA titles | Konami stops making games for consoles | Konami is Dead | I Hate Konami | Konami Sucks | Konami is Ruined

Konami NOT stopping development of AAA titles for Console or PC

Did I call this one or what? Last week, rumors abounded that Konami was exiting the gaming market once again (this rumor ALREADY happened earlier this year). Can we finally put this rumor to bed now please? As I wrote in my article here: Konami Reportedly Stops Making Games, Internet Goes Crazy Over Rumors I advised gamers to not get too upset, and boy was I right. Konami ONCE AGAIN denied rumors that they are exiting the console and pc marketplace.

Konami Reportedly Stops Making Console and PC Games, Internet Goes Crazy Over Rumors

UPDATE: See my updated post regarding this issue. Hint: Konami is NOT stopping development of AAA games for console or PC

My original post from 9/18/15 is below in it’s unedited state. As you can see, I nailed it. Don’t believe rumors you guys.

Konami has had some recent restructuring with several key players exiting the company. Earlier this year, Konami announced that they want to focus on mobile gaming. However, they NEVER said they would STOP making console games. The internet lost it’s mind none the less and began flaming the company and jumping to needless conclusions. Now it appears history is repeating itself, as a french website leaked new rumors that Konami will stop publishing any new console games aside from the upcoming Metal Gear which will still release on October 6th. read more

Persona 5 | TGS2015 | Tokyo Game Show 2015 | Tokyo Game Show | Persona | Delayed | Release Date | Summer 2016

Persona 5 delayed until Summer 2016

Persona 5 took center stage at Tokyo Game Show 2015 with a new Trailer (see it below); however, it also brought with it, the sad news that the game is being delayed once again, now with an estimated release date of Summer 2016. I’m disapointed by this news, as it was reported that the special Persona 5 event was in order to announce the “exact” release date. Not only do we not have an “exact” release date, but we learn that the game is once again delayed, and not even first quarter 2016, but instead, almost a full year from now – and that’s just for the Japanese gamers; the rest of us can probably expect an even longer wait. read more

Danganronpa 3 Trailer at Tokyo Gameshow 2015 Coming to PS4 and Vita

TGS2015 is still underway in Japan, and new game announcements are still trickling in. One game that I’m really excited for is the upcoming Danganronpa 3 which is a series of games that plays a lot like the Phoenix Wright games.



You find yourself locked in a school and engaged in a “game” in which the only way you can ever leave the school is if you can successfully murder a classmate without getting caught. Of course, as the hero in the game, you instead are trying to focus on a way to escape without having to kill anyone. But your life may also be in danger if wrongly accused or if the killer goes free. After each murder, as soon as a victim is found, you’re allowed to investigate the crime scene and question your classmates for clues. Then there’s a trial in which you continue your questioning and present your evidence as to who you think is behind the murders. read more

PS4 Price Drop Announced at Tokyo Game Show 2015. New Price Equivalent to $292 USD.

PS4 Price Drop Announced at Tokyo Game Show 2015. New Price Equivalent to $292 USD.

The PS4 is getting a major price drop in Japan. The PS4 is not region locked, so if you’re in the market to purchase a PS4 right now (as I am); you may want to consider importing the console until a North American Price Drop is announced. The new price is approximately $292 USD compared to the typical $399.99 charged by US retailers. This is a cost savings of $110! That’s significant change. Enough to pick up several new games for your system, or if you’re like me, and wanting multiple systems, enough to almost buy a wii u :). With all the great games announced at E3 and the Tokyo Game Show this year, the PS4 is a must own item for anyone who loves RPGs and Anime styled games. read more

Apple TV’s New Update to Put Huge Emphasis on Gaming

According to this quote from an article on theverge.com

[quote]”The new Apple TV is much more powerful than its predecessor, which is a crucial upgrade for the device’s gaming ambitions. It’s powered by a 64-bit A8 processor and supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. “It’s just 10 millimeters taller,” than the previous device, said Apple’s Eddy Cue.

King's Quest To Get a Sequel King's Quest IX on July 28th 2015.

King’s Quest To Get a Sequel King’s Quest IX on July 28th 2015.

I think I recall hearing about this a year or two ago… but it fell to the back of my mind… until a facebook ad told me to like Sierra Games for updates on the “new” king’s quest game.

Upon clicking that ad, I saw the game is about to release on July 28th…. and I SPAZZED OUT. I can barely contain myself to even write this right now…

I own ALL of the games. My favorite is “heir today, gone tomorrow” because it was the first one I played 🙂

New LEAKED Trailers for Persona 5! NEW RARE Never Before Seen! New Footage. UPDATE.

New LEAKED Trailers for Persona 5! NEW RARE Never Before Seen! New Footage. UPDATE.

UPDATE: another trailer was revealed at Tokyo Game Show, along with news that the game has been delayed until Summer 2016. Read more and watch the newest trailer in my new blog post over here.

My original post with footage released on Jun 30, 2015 is below:

Youtube has been buzzing all week with NEW leaked gameplay footage and new TRAILERS for Atlus’ upcoming rpg, Persona 5. Atlus disapointed fans at this year’s E3 by showing the same trailer they had already released. Now it seems some perhaps intentional leaks are coming in to help promote their cult classic RPG franchise. The game will be available this fall on both PS3 and PS4. i’m a huge Persona fangirl, and this title is a must-own in my opinion. I’m dying to find out what variations, if any, will exist between the PS3 and PS4 versions. Maybe it’s time for me to buy a PS4 for this game although I already have a PS3. read more

Sony PS4 Ultimate Gamer's Edition with 1TB Harddrive Is Coming Soon

Sony PS4 Ultimate Player Edition with 1TB Harddrive Is Coming Soon

The PS4 Ultimate Player Edition brings with it the following improvements to the system’s hardware:

8% power savings
10% lighter weight
And most excitingly, a 1TB Harddrive.

In an unprecedented move, Sony announced the console will be heading to Europe first with a release date of July 15th, and gave no word on when or if a US release will happen.

Many news outlets suspect that Sony may delay the release of the Ultimate Player Edition within the US to deplete their inventory of existing PS4 units already on the shelves. read more
