Have You Played… Amnesia Memories?

Before Doki Doki Literature Club exploded, there was: Amnesia Memories. I know what you’re thinking and no, this horror enthusiast isn’t talking about some spinoff to the brilliant Amnesia series (The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs). I’m talking about Amnesia Memories, the Otome game from Idea Factory – Otome being a dating sim aimed at women and girls.

Goth anime dungeon crawl Mary Skelter: Nightmares is out now

Idea Factory's Wizardry/Etrian Odyssey-esque dungeon crawl Mary Skelter: Nightmares did well enough for itself over on the Vita, and made the jump to PC today. Before you go running for the hills, look up there at all those stats and bars and colours! It's anime excess bleeding into the interface itself, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Judging by the trailer below, it…

Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls hits PC

"Who won E3?" the pundits demand to know. And who lost? Who stood triumphant and who fell? Who was split in twain and who feasted upon their entrails?

Console Wars: Hyperdimension Neptunia Continues

I'm still surprised and delighted that there exists a Japanese RPG series telling allegorical tales of the console wars through sexy anime warrior goddesses, and is popular enough to be released on PC in English. I hear mixed things about Hyperdimension Neptunia, but evidently enough people dig it for the games to keep coming our way. And I'm glad, because I enjoy reminders of how…

Scratch That Strategy JRPG Itch With Agarest 2

Hello and welcome to this news post on Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Today we'll be telling you about Agarest: Generations of War 2 [official site], a tactical RPG from Japanese devs Idea Factory. Agarest 2 was released on Steam a couple of days ago. That was all a bit matter of fact, wasn't it? Phew! I wasn't sure I could make it through an entire paragraph without…

Romance-o-battle: Agarest 2 Ported To PC

War! Death! Killing! Murder! Mutilation! Kill! Kill! Kill! But why? What are we killing for? Why are we to jam and push bullets through eyesockets? Love, of course. It always comes down to love. Love of a person, a country, an idea, or sometimes a love of ourselves so toxic we must burst every other living body. The JRPG series Agarest is a bit more…
