Cladun Returns This is Sengoku achieves what it sets out to be with an apparent abundance of effort on the part of the developers. However, Cladun is not for everyone, and probably not even for most people. It’s intensely focused on customization, attention to detail, and a formidable obsession with stats. In the process, it sacrifices story and the option for casual gameplay; those not familiar with heavy RPG play, might want to think twice before plunging into Cladun.

NIS America announced that Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will be arriving on Steam in North America on September 12 and Europe on September 15. The game will also include dual audio (English and Japanese) as well as in-game text in English and French.

A Rose in The Twilight Review

A Rose in The Twilight is a visually stunning yet straightforward puzzle-platformer with a macabre atmosphere and an adorable main character. The storyline and the dialogue tend to fall short, but with unique game mechanics and beautiful design, lovers of the genre can enjoy the delightful characters while testing their mettle on the challenging puzzles of this title.

Disgaea 2 Review

Disagea 2 is a fantastic release that plays quite smoothly and has a tremendous amount of depth and playability to offer. Granted, the combat mechanic can seem repetitive, but there is a staggering number of classes to recruit, along with new abilities to unlock and level up, and new maps and aspects to explore. As a Prinny might say: download the demo and check it out, dood!

The Anime style of Criminal Girls: Invite Only may be great, but it isn't enough to consider the Steam release a worthy purchase. A video game should always be fun to play; sadly, too many oddities plague this one's progression and inhibit the strategic aspects that turned-based RPGs rely on to be considered good games.
