Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally arrived on Steam

It might've taken eight years for Phantasy Star Online 2 to make it to the West, but fortunately, the jump from the Windows Store to Steam only took the Japanese MMO a mere couple of months. Sonic Team's free-to-play anime romp has finally found a place on Valve's shelves, making it easier than ever to hop in and bash a load of goblins in a…

Sonic Mania runs full-speed into EA Origin Access

As a nostalgia trip, Sonic Mania is impeccably precise. So, naturally, you'll want to really nail those throwback kicks by, uh, playing it through an unrelated publisher's digital subscription service. The blue blur and his grossly mutated twin-tailed fox friend are now sprinting through EA's Origin Access Premiere service, with Two Point Hospital and Endless Legend set to join them in the near future.

Phantasy Star Online 2 dons a hazard suit for next month’s Steam launch

Phantasy Star Online 2 is pretty bloody weird, right? A sci-fi romp that has your anime heroes fighting everything from goblins to WW2 battleships by way of Evangelion's screaming hell-prism. Now, with a Steam launch due next month, you'll soon be able to traipse through PSO2 as some kind of Valve chimaera - piloting a far-future mech in Gordon Freeman's hazard suit as a tiny…

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be a standalone game, Sega clarify

When Sega announced Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis at Thursday's NotE3 Xbox show, there was a bit of a kerfuffle over what it was. An update? An expansion? A brand new game? To help clear up any misconceptions, the publishers have put together a new "follow-up" trailer explaining exactly what New Genesis actually is - a new, spruced-up standalone release that will let you…

Yakuza: Like A Dragon is out November 13th, Xbox leak says

While Yakuza: Like A Dragon officially doesn't have a release date, only a November launch window, a listing on the Microsoft Store seems to have given it away: November 13th. The Store has been a real helpful source of leaks in recent weeks, with info on games including Call Of Duty: Black Ops CIA, Crysis Remastered, and Star Wars Squadron. Thanks, Microsoft.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will give the ageing MMO a facelift

Phantasy Star Online 2's getting on a bit, isn't it? Sega's big ol' sci-fi MMO might've only officially come to the West this Spring, but it's been big in Japan for the better part of a decade - and boy, does it show. Announced during today's Xbox Games Showcase, New Genesis is preparing to change all that with a massive overhaul to the MMOs visuals.

Have You Played… Sonic Adventure 2?

Sonic Adventure 2 is more of a footnote in the Sonic series history these days, but back in 2001 it was an event. Sega wanted to make a big deal out of the fact their hedgehog had reached 10 years old. There was a demo CD bundled with Phantasy Star Online. Sonic Adventure 2 even had a worldwide release - a rarity in the early…

Yakuza: Like A Dragon reveals its English voice cast

The next mainline Yakuza game is treading a lot of new territory. Yakuza: Like A Dragon is ditching series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu in favor of new hero Ichiban Kasgua. They're shuffling up the usual punch 'em up combat in favor of a turn-based system. Oh, and there's going to be English voice acting. No, no, don't go! It actually sounds pretty decent. You can hear…

Feature: The face that sold a thousand units of stone

I sold loads of rocks during A Total War Saga: Troy’s campaign

If you see the name "Menelaus" and find yourself scratching your head over how to pronounce it, then have no fear: play any more than eight seconds of A Total War Saga: Troy, and you will never forget. That's because the extremely bellowy king of Sparta can't seem to take a breath without hollering his own name on the exhalation. He's like an incredibly angry…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 comes to Xbox Game Pass this month

Earlier in the RPS treehouse, I was explaining to Nate that the Yakuza games are wonderful and kindhearted, not just serious crime drama (though they are also serious crime drama). Then as if my love of gaming's best dads is able to shape reality, mere hours later Sega have announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will come to Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass on July…

20 years on, Jet Set Radio is still influencing developers

Okay, so technically it wasn't until 2012 that PC players got to skate, tag and grind for themselves, but June 29th marked the 20th anniversary of the original release of Jet Set Radio (or Jet Grind Radio, as it was known Stateside at the time). An anti-establishment skating action game with a killer soundtrack, Jet Set Radio was the hippest thing ever to burst onto…

Persona 4 Golden review

Most roleplaying games span continents, planets, even galaxies. Persona 4 Golden – the first of Atlus's celebrated RPGs to make a belated landfall on PC - is set almost entirely inside a single town. It's not even a very memorable town: neither a wistful Chosen One Village nor a bustling world hub, but a wilting suburb done up in Google Map shades of tarmac and…

Feature: Its 4K art sure looks pretty, though

I’ve been playing Persona 4 Golden on PC and yep, this is definitely a port of a 2012 game

Rejoice, JRPG fans. Persona 4 Golden has finally been summoned onto PC. Announced just moments ago at the PC Gaming Show as part of this year's notE3 celebrations, this is the first time a Persona game has been released on something that doesn't have the word PlayStation written on it, which is pretty darn exciting if you ask me. This is a series I've been…

Persona 4 Golden is out on PC right now

After a little teasing, Atlus have launched Persona 4 Golden on PC, making it the first (and arguably best) entry in the much-loved JRPG series to make it over. It's out right now, appearing on Steam ahead of today's expected announcement. It's a series I've been hankering for on PC for absolutely ages, so it's great to see Atlus and Sega finally opening the floodgates.…

Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to “more PC platforms”

Sega recently gave free-to-play action-RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 a long-overdue western release with two gutting caveats: it's on the Windows 10 Store; and it's only for North America. Microsoft's Store is enough of a mess that some would-be players still can't play PSO2. While sadly they still don't have anything to say about a European launch, there is good news for stores. Alongside announcing…

Hands-on preview – Total War Saga: Troy promises demanding, fast-paced strategy

Total War Saga: Troy is out on August 13th and will be free at launch, and having played a demo battle which pitted Achilles’ Acheans against Hector’s Trojans, I’m intrigued to play more. I've chosen the word "intrigued" deliberately, here. Because while the tactical depth of what I played was impressive, and rooted itself emphatically in its semi-mythical setting, its multi-skilled infantry and attention-demanding heroes…

Total War: Troy will be free at launch on Epic in August

Creative Assembly have announced a release date of August 13th for A Total War Saga: Troy, with a surprise: they'll give it away free to keep on the Epic Games Store at launch. It's becoming an Epic timed exclusive, see, and how! The giveaway is only for one day, mind. In the usual Epixclusive way, it'll be on Steam after one year - and Creative…

Manchester United are suing Football Manager developers over use of their name

As big sports organisations are wont to do, Manchester United are getting touchy about the use of their name. The English Premier League have filed a complaint against Sega and Sports Interactive for the use of the team's name in the Football Manager series. They take issue with how the series may "benefit from an association with the club’s winning culture and its brand values" without…
