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 […]

You’re inside a computer database and you control Lain with the D-pad. You can move her up and down through “layers” of story data. Inside […]
