By Jenni . October 22, 2014 . 5:29pm

By Anthony . October 21, 2014 . 5:00pm

This may sound like a backhanded compliment, but I’m glad Compile Heart didn’t reuse dungeon layouts more than twice, aside from the abandoned city layout (used four times).

Bayonetta 2: Action Adventure At Its Finest

By Clark . October 17, 2014 . 12:30pm

Bayonetta 2 feels like an action-adventure more than a pure action game. Yeah, it sounds like a petty distinction, but there’s a big difference.

Given that Ar nosurge is connected to another series, Ar tonelico, and is also a direct sequel to the Japan-only Vita game Ciel nosurge, you’re looking at a game that builds upon four other past games and their mythologies.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS: A Delicious Appetizer

By Clark . October 1, 2014 . 5:31pm

While I love what Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has in store for me as I play more of it, it’s still kind of hard to shake the feeling that this isn’t the main event.

Natural Doctrine: Survival of the Fittest

By Thomas . September 29, 2014 . 5:30pm

The story is actually quite engaging once it gets going, which was a genuine and welcome surprise to me, as NIS America said almost nothing about it, prior to release.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Surpasses Expectation

By Ethan . September 20, 2014 . 5:00pm

Final Fantasy has a musical pedigree unlike any in the video game medium. Everyone will have his/her own favorites, but the obvious bases have been covered and an awful lot of less obvious bases as well.

Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney Is Beautiful But Hollow

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment – Death By Localization
