A Fantastic Example Of What Fighting Games Should Be 0

As a kid, I could never really get into fighting games. My slow simian brain could never coil itself around the ideals of quarter circle forewords plus fierce or flash kicks or stun loops; the only reference I could use in order understand such terminology was whatever happened to clumsily be explained in old issues of Gamepro. Now, later, my favorite fighting game, to date, is Guilty Gear XX: Reload. Guilty Gear was the first fighting game I could sit down with and really wrap my head around, a...

Return to the Midnight Channel! 0

The Investigation Team is back!As someone that has never played an Arc System Works Co., Ltd. game I was worried that I may not enjoy P4A. The story which was developed by Atlus Co., Ltd. was incentive enough for me to give it a shot. The crazy dream team actually works. P4A is both a solid fighting game that Arc fans will enjoy and has enough story for Persona fans. The story picks up around 2 months after the true end of Persona 4. Yu Narukami(Charlie Tunoku) returns for Golden Week in order t...

A game after mine own heart. 0

I am of the opinion that Persona 4 is a very peculiar piece of wonder, even if that magical awe is incidental. For all I know, it was an accident that Atlus’ schoolkids-and-tarot cards RPG/dating sim brushes with psychological issues, gender politics, family dynamics and does so with surprisingly affable characters. I mean, Persona 3 wasn’t this intelligent. Likewise, I have a fond place in my heart for Arc System Works’ fighting games. They move fast, have crazy combinations without tipping the...

Do Not Adjust Your Set: Persona 4 Arena is Mostly Great 0

As a fan of the Persona series, I love the art design, sound work, and the general gameplay conceit of evoking demons in a dungeon. As a fan of the Street Fighter games, I like the competitive "Get Hype" adrenaline rush that comes with matching up against other fighters, combo systems that aren't too confusing and provide unique moves, and the (admittedly) strange conceit of telling the story of the same fighting tournament that's been happening for years. Two great flavors that could taste grea...

I am genuinely amazed at how well this turned out. 0

The ShortPros- Excellently crafted fighting game from the creators of Guilty Gear and Blazblue- Accessible combos and moves make this Arc System's most "noob friendly" game yet- Game is gorgeous and follows a similar art/aesthetic style to Persona 3 and 4- Story mode does a decent job connecting the characters from Persona 3 and 4 while adding some entertaining foils- Voice acting is spot on, as it usually is with these games, and the localization team still rocks- Music is excellent, featuring ...

Niche Game for the Masses 0

I feel like I should preface this review with a number of comments. I have never played a Persona game prior to this release. I am an avid fighting game fan at this point with and find myself drawn to both new and classic fighting games. I do enjoy the BlazBlue series, but fully understand why those games do not have mass appeal. I am also a huge fan of games like Mortal Kombat and the Street Fighter series.With that said, most of my draw to this game has been due to this very website. I followe...
