Sting gets into the International Edition business with Baroque

By Spencer . July 31, 2008 . 11:42pm

Earlier this year Sting released Baroque for the Wii. On October 28 it’s coming out for the PlayStation 2… again. Sting will release Baroque International which has English voice acting and Japanese subtitles. The only other difference is the first person mode. This feature is in Atlus’ version of Baroque so you aren’t missing anything […]

Baroque impressions take three, now with waggle

By Levi . April 8, 2008 . 12:10pm

Siliconera readers may recall Spencer chronicling his journey through the Neuro Tower in Baroque for PS2 over the last couple of months. Well, now it's my turn to take that journey, this time on Wii. I was anxious to see just how the game played on Wii, and how Sting implemented the Wii's motion controls. […]

Drones hold Baroque in the dungeon until April

By Spencer . February 26, 2008 . 3:14pm

Yesterday, we wrote up a brief piece hinting at a delay for the dark world of Baroque. Unfortunately, this news is more than a rumor. Atlus updated their official release calendar with the cyclic dungeon crawler slated for April 8. This marks the second delay for Baroque, but I think this is a bright move […]

Baroque lost in a labyrinth, delayed until April?

By Spencer . February 25, 2008 . 9:30am

This is far from official, but the Gamestop release calendar has Baroque slated for April 8. Gamefly also has Baroque scheduled for an April release, although a couple of days later on April 10. Atlus hasn’t officially announced anything regarding a release date change aside from the original delay to March 15 18. Sting has […]

Beating the Neuro Tower in Baroque

By Spencer . February 18, 2008 . 10:35pm

  The last time I wrote about Baroque I was blowing myself up with boom bones. I’ve gotten notably better controlling the not-so-silent protagonist and conquered Neruo Tower multiple times. One of the tricks is to progress through the floors slowly. It’s tempting to jump in the nearest portal to plunge an extra 100 cubits […]

Angelic shmup, Baroque Shooting

By Spencer . February 1, 2008 . 10:57am

While we’re on the subject of Sting, let’s unearth one of their more obscure titles. No, I’m not talking about the Evolution RPG series, which Ubisoft localized for North America. Back in 2000, Sting took the twisted dungeon crawler Baroque and changed it into a vertical shmup. In Baroque Shooting players guide an angel with […]

Baroque delayed until March

By Spencer . January 17, 2008 . 9:39pm

A day after my first Baroque piece went live I get an e-mail from Atlus that Baroque won’t be arriving until March 18. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised because Sting announced Baroque for Wii wasn’t coming out until March 13 in Japan. Previously, it looked like North America would get the widescreen Wii-make first. […]

Entering the twisted dungeons of Baroque

By Spencer . January 16, 2008 . 11:30am

Baroque begins with a blue haired protagonist talking to an archangel who drops a gun on the ground. The winged creature gave me a cryptic message, “there is meaning into you using this” before I stepped into Neuro Tower without any weapons. Well, technically I had the Angelic bazooka with five bullets… should I use […]

Baroque for Wii gains a Sega Saturn camera angle

By Spencer . December 21, 2007 . 2:12pm

Sting never made a murmur about the existence of a Wii port, which allowed Atlus to surprise the world when they announced Baroque was coming to North America. I think we’re all expecting Sting to add in motion controls for the Wii-make and a nunchuck/remote input scheme is part of Baroque. If swinging the remote […]

Baroque is coming next year with a surprise

By Spencer . December 12, 2007 . 10:56am

Thanks to the work of some intelligent internet scouts we had a hint that Baroque was coming to North America a few months ago. Atlus is bringing the Playstation 2 game out in February 2008, but not without an unexpected announcement. Baroque is coming out for the Wii too! It’s unclear how motion control will […]

Hope for Persona 3: FES in North America?

By Spencer . October 19, 2007 . 6:58pm

This rumor is skating on thin ice, nearly melted thin ice, but it’s too good not to report. Over at the Atlus forums an eagle eyed member noticed Steve Prince, the voice actor for Takaya, updated his resume with Persona 3: FES and Sting’s Baroque. However, his resume has been updated again and the games […]

Musical masterpieces: The best video game soundtracks you’ve never heard

By Levi . September 5, 2007 . 12:02pm

Ask a gamer what makes a great game, and the first answer you'll most likely get will almost undoubtedly be either graphics or gameplay. But one very important and oft overlooked part of what makes a game great is the soundtrack. The music in a video game can touch us, make us scared, make us […]

Watch: Baroque Opening (PSOne/Saturn)

By Rolando . March 14, 2007 . 5:29pm

A while back, I made mention of Sting working on a PS2 remake of their PSOne/Sega Saturn game Baroque. Out of sheer curiosity, I took it upon myself to see if I could find the opening to the original Baroque game on the Internets because, you know, you can pretty much find anything; and to […]

More on Sting’s PS2 Game: Baroque

By Rolando . March 11, 2007 . 2:43pm

  Those of you who’ve played Riviera: The Promised Land and Yggdra Union may be surprised to know that Sting’s latest RPG is an action RPG titled Baroque, a remake of a Sega Saturn/PSOne RPG. Dengeki Online reports that the official Baroque site has been updated with new content such as character bio, story, and a […]
