Revenge Of the RPG Reprints

By Spencer . November 13, 2008 . 3:12pm

Another wave of RPG reprints is on the horizon and Atlus is kicking it off by re-releasing Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. The reprint comes with a bonus disc containing a developer interview and is considered by Atlus “extremely limited.” This isn’t the first time new copies of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment have entered the market, […]

Persona 2: Innocent Sin goes back to school, learns English

By Spencer . March 21, 2008 . 1:40pm

Persona 2: Innocent Sin is the missing chapter of the Persona series. Die hard Megami Tensei fans know this and have been craving to play the first half of Persona 2 in English.   Thankfully, Gemini is hard at work on the job. He (she?) has a blog discussing the trials of the fan translation […]

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis, a refreshing RPG concoction

By Andrew . February 12, 2008 . 12:23am

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis is finally a go for the US on March 18th and I have the rare opportunity to try the Atelier Iris spinoff before its release date.  Now I’ve never played any of the games in the series, so I was a little leery of the game when I first received […]

Tales of fan translation, PsOne Phantasia in English

By Spencer . December 27, 2007 . 1:17pm

Namco released Tales of Phantasia on the Game Boy Advance and it contained some of the modifications from the PsOne release. However, the anime intro got cut and the music was notably downsampled. No problem, though! Thanks to the hard work of the fan translation community a polished English patch of Tales of Phantasia for […]

PsOne games prettier via emulation

By Spencer . August 6, 2007 . 6:46pm

I have to credit Retrogaming guru Racketboy for opening a discussion about how to play with PsOne visuals. Chrono Cross looks especially sharp on the PC when you play with Pete’s PSX Open GL render and have a fancy graphics card. What’s more impressive than smoothing out the jaggies are some of the experimental shaders […]

FolksSoul Japanese Demo Impressions

By Rolando . June 4, 2007 . 11:51am

Perhaps what is widely considered by many Playstation 3 owners to be the very first definitive title to purchase for their beloved system and a game that warrants their purchasing of said system, FolksSoul (better known as Folklore here in the U.S.) was available yesterday for download via Playstation Store in Japan. With such a […]

Behind Squaresoft’s localization curtain

By Spencer . May 25, 2007 . 10:54am

Jerisaka at Square-Haven must have ninja like skills. Somehow he manages to track down people from Square’s localization history. Previously he wrote up an interview with Alexander O. Smith about his work on Vagrant Story. Now there is a new interview with ex-Squaresoft staffer Amanada Katsurada where she talks about her work on Vagrant Story, […]

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 […]

Tales of Fandom Vol. 2 is a reality

By Rolando . February 21, 2007 . 5:06am

Namco-Bandai has revealed today on its Official Tales Channel site that the newest entry in their Tales franchise is Tales of Fandom Vol. 2. Of course you might be asking yourself exactly what is Tales of Fandom exactly is; basically, Tales of Fandom Vol. 1 was a fan disc created by Namco at the time […]

Policenauts fan translation in ‘07

By Spencer . February 7, 2007 . 7:36am

Snatcher was a killer app for the Sega CD, too bad nobody cared about it at the time. While Snatcher moved on to cult status in America, Hideo Kojima (the creator of Metal Gear Solid) was working on the spirited sequel, Policenauts. Policenauts is an adventure game where you play as Jonathan Ingram, a space […]

Final Fantasy PSP for preorder already?

By Rolando . February 2, 2007 . 7:23am

PSP Fanboy recently posted an article about Gamestop listing Final Fantasy PSP for preorder on its website. At first, I was a bit shocked to see the game for preorder; then I was instantly reminded of how SCEA has this ridiculous policy where ports/remakes/whatever you want to call them won’t be guaranteed a release here […]

Gundam Musou PS3 Pack Planned

By Rolando . February 2, 2007 . 5:14am

I have to admit that whenever I heard Gundam Musou being announced, my feelings towards the game were mixed with joy and skepticism. A Gundam game that plays like Dynasty Warriors? Assuming it does things right that Dynasty Warriors and its many incarnations has been known to do a bit wrong (i.e. static camera, mediocre controls, no real "change"), […]
