Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash review Not a splash. Just a drip.

Developer: Marvelous

Publisher: XSEED

Platform: PS4

ESRB Rating: T

Release Date: September 26th, 2017

MRSP:$69.99/$59.99

Thank you to XSEED for providing the game for reviewing purposes.

While Summer is over, you can keep it going forever in Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash. The titular series takes us to the pool this time around for some crazy ninja water gun fights. But wait, melee attacks and ninja arts are more or less banned, so how does this play out? By being a third person shooter of course. That said, we’re going into complete uncharted territory here since the franchise is known for being a brawler/musou-esque gameplay design depending on which game it is. Not only that, but this game is also the series’s 5th year anniversary game go figure.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Review – So Long, Bearwell

Developer: Spike-Chunsoft

Publisher: Nippon Ichi Software (PSV/PS4) Spike-Chunsoft (PC)

Platform: PSV/PS4/PC

ESRB Rating: M

Release Date: September 26nd, 2017

Thank you NISA for supplying a copy for the review

It’s time. A new Danganronpa has arrived. This isn’t like Ultra Despair Girls where it became a 3D puzzle shooter/action game hybrid. But instead, we’re going back to the traditional scenario of 16 high school kids with ultimate abilities trapped in an unfamiliar environment killing each other while you have to figure out who killed who. Don’t worry though, if you’re new to the series, this is a meant to be a new starting point so knowledge of the previous entries aren’t needed. Also, please know that is not to be confused with Danganronpa 3 which is the ending to the previous Danganronpa games.

Pokken Tournament is a Pokemon fighting game developed by the talent behind the Tekken series, originally made for Wii U and Arcades. Instead of just making a Tekken game with a roster entirely made up of Pokemon, the developers decided to go a different route by combining 2D and 3D gameplay. Pokken Tournament DX sports new content, and a few quality of life changes to make the experience much better, but how much better is it overall?

Alliance Alive Heading Westward in Early 2018

At the most recent Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Atlus USA would be bringing the most recent FURYU 3DS JRPG  The Alliance Alive to the west. A spiritual successor of sorts to The Legend of Legacy.

Converted_Guild - Renzo at Bar

It’s time to resist! Humanity must band together and unite against Daemon oppressors because ATLUS is bringing FURYU Corporation’s JRPG The Alliance Alive to the Americas and Europe for Nintendo 3DS!
The game was originally released in Japan earlier this year and features nostalgic gameplay developed with a modern touch. Featuring massive world-exploration, an intertwining story of nine protagonists, an exhilarating turn-based battle system, and more, JRPG fans will instantly feel at home when crusading against evil in The Alliance Alive.
One thousand years ago, Daemons invaded the world and subjugated all that stood in their path. They then separated the realms with the Great Barrier, which thrust the world into a sea of chaos. The barrier caused the Dark Current, an ocean current that submerged most major cities, to wreak havoc and decimate humanity. All hope was lost, and all remaining humans had to bend the knee to their new Daemon kings. Hundreds of years later, the world is about to change again… There are whispers of resistance, and now the time is ripe to bring it to a roar. Can you fan the flames of rebellion and lead mankind to victory?
The Alliance Alive will be launching physically and digitally in the Americas for $39.99, while only being released digitally in Europe.

Mary Skelter: Nightmares Review – This Fleece is Pink With Blood

Developer: Compile Heart

Publisher: Idea Factory International

Platform: PS Vita

ESRB Rating: M

Release Date: September 19th, 2017

MRSP:$39.99

Thank you Idea Factory International for allowing us to review the Vita version of this game.

It’s been about a year since I’ve played a DRPG. It’s been a year since I’ve played MeiQ, the game that made me take this much time away from the genre. Yet here we are, with IF taking on the genre once more (albeit this one not being a Makai Ichiban Kan title) by the name of Mary Skelter: Nightmares. Thankfully, unlike the last one, going through Mary Skelter isn’t a living nightmare.
