A girl, a dog set and a dash of the Wild West. First play with Wild ARMs XF

By Spencer . March 4, 2008 . 10:31pm

On the surface Clarissa Arwin, the first character you meet in Wild ARMs XF, looks like the late Princess of Elesius. Also on the surface, Wild ARMs XF appears to have ordinary strategy RPG combat goals such as walking up to enemies and whacking them with swords. Looks can be deceiving.   In Act 1-2 […]

Out in the open, AQ Interactive owns XSeed Games

By Spencer . February 22, 2008 . 12:40am

Ever wonder why Victorious Boxers Revolution got localized for North America? Cavia developed the title and they fall under the growing AQ Interactive umbrella. Unbeknownst to most, XSeed Games is also part of the AQ Interactive family.   I found out about this awhile ago by reading AQ Interactive’s financial report statements, but I thought […]

Wild ARMs 5 / Wild ARMs XF connectivity revised for North America

By Spencer . February 12, 2008 . 6:31pm

I don’t think this is well documented, but the Japanese version of Wild ARMs XF has a connectivity feature that unlocks additional content if you own Wild ARMs 5. Since XSeed released Wild ARMs 5 and are about to release Wild ARMs XF I wondered if the bonus items would appear in the North American […]

Master combat in Wild ARMs XF, XSeed talks tactics

By Spencer . February 7, 2008 . 2:51pm

Remember the Wild ARMs XF interview over at PSP Fanboy? We’re following up with an in depth look at the job system. Jimmy Soga from XSeed put together an introduction to four of the twenty job classes in Wild ARMs XF and shared strategies on how to use them effectively. After wards other team members […]

Wild ARMs XF outlined and interviewed (not by us)

By Spencer . January 31, 2008 . 3:14pm

Just so it’s out in the open, I was planning on doing an interview with XSeed about Wild ARMs XF. However, after reading Nick Doerr’s excellent interview over a PSP Fanboy it would be pretty redundant. I suggest all Wild ARMs fans should head over there to find out about the story, game length and […]

Anime meets sports in Victorious Boxers: Revolution

By Andrew . November 5, 2007 . 1:49pm

Sports games are perhaps the most interesting genre on the Wii right now.  Gamers can now experience a more immersive sports game more than ever due to the system's motion sensing capabilities.  Victorious Boxers: Revolution is unique in its approach compared to pretty much any sports game I've played for the system.  Hit past the […]

AQ Interactive and XSeed united. Hope for Anata Wo Yurusanai?

By Spencer . September 11, 2007 . 12:38pm

I don’t think many people know this, but Japanese publisher AQ Interactive has a stake in XSeed Games that benefits both companies. AQ Interactive has a capable studio to localize their games and XSeed has more titles to work on. This is probably the reason why XSeed Games is handling Hajime no Ippo Revolution and […]

Welcome (back) to the Wild ARMs west

By Spencer . August 29, 2007 . 8:37pm

One hour into Wild ARMs 5, Dean's shovel breaks, a girl falls from the sky, he gets a set of ARMs that act like shoulder swords and the game begins. You begin to explore the field and start searching for treasures. Remember the scanning system in the old Wild ARMs games? It's back in Wild […]

Wild ARMs V, unboxing edition

By Spencer . August 29, 2007 . 3:24pm

As a sweet surprise a final copy of Wild ARMs V showed up today with the bundled art book. Surprisingly, the package was not from the same company as the Persona 3 or Ar Tonelico box sets. What you get is a cool looking metallic box with the game and the 80+ page soft cover […]

Monsters, dragons and arms. A RPG triple threat now in stores

By Spencer . August 28, 2007 . 9:37pm

A quick reminder that Wild ARMs 5 with the original Japanese theme song in the game should be in your local retailer by the time you read it. I know Persona 3 has been fomenting excitement in the RPG community, but this deserves a fair share of attention too. Look for Wild ARMs 5 stuff […]

Watch: The beginning of Wild ARMs 5

By Spencer . August 16, 2007 . 8:08pm

I’m just beginning to dive into Wild ARMs 5 and in the first hour it managed to captivate me. The story begins with Dean, who likes to run around in a poncho and attack with a shovel. He starts out in the runs digging for golem parts. See, when Dean was a little kid he […]

The Art of Wild ARMs has illustrations from the entire series, but you can only get it during the game’s launch on August 28. Since the limited edition package is the same $39.99 […]

By Spencer . August 2, 2007 . 11:58am

XSeed Games sent over a memo with the preview build and they mentioned it is scheduled for a late August release. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but since the release date is so soon we will be posting up more details on Wild ARMs V in the near future. Maybe a […]
