Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary

No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" in Japanese. Whatever personal peculiarities led the team at Nippon...

Review: The Guided Fate Paradox

One of the greatest things about video games is the opportunity they afford us to take on roles we'd normally never have the chance to do. For example, in The Guided Fate Paradox, the latest from the team that brought us the Disgaea: Hour o...

A new Nippon Ichi action RPG is in the works

We know that Nippon Ichi are working on a new RPG, which is pretty much a given at any time as well as a huge 'no sh*t' kind of thing. But Dengeki PlayStation says its an action RPG. Maybe it's something like the upcoming The Witch and a Hu...

The story behind Time and Eternity's revolutionary look

When the PlayStation 1 and N64 came out and rough, polygonal, 3D character models became the norm, it took me a while to realize what was wrong. Playing certain games would creep into the uncanny. It took me a surprisingly long while to rea...

Disgaea Dimension 2 gets a crazy new video

At this point, you know whether you're a Disgaea fan or not. If you're not, part of the reason may be the lack of a return to Laharl's classic tale in Hour of Darkness: which Disgaea Dimension 2 is fixing, seeing as it's a full sequel. If...

Disgaea D2, a true Disgaea sequel, is on the way

Look, I have nothing against Disgaea 2's Adelle, Disgaea 3's Mao, and Disgaea 4's Valvatorez (I love them all actually), but there's just something about Laharl that made the original game so special.Well, after years of Laharl making ...

Dood: 10 million hours of Disgaea 3 have been played

Players have gone through 10 million play hours of Disgaea 3: Absense of Detention, says Nippon Ichi. That is...that's insane! I wouldn't be surprised if this breaks down to each player playing 100 hours or more. Disgaea 3 came out as a lau...
