Developer: Spike Chunsoft Publisher: NIS America Platform: PC (Steam) Price: $29.99
Danganronpa was reviewed due to a code received from the publisher, NIS America.
Danganronpa does something truly fascinating. It features such brutality mixed with utterly goofy antics spliced with various genres including social sims, murder mystery along with a bit of Phoenix Wright courtroom drama for good measure. If this is how good visual novels can be then it should come as no surprise that more titles are making their way across the ocean.
I’ll fully admit to being entirely new to Visual Novels. It is an oddity considering how many video games from Japanese [...]

The events of Resident Evil Zero take place a mere 24 hours before the infamous Spencer Mansion incident (Resident Evil) and introduce the classic survival formula with a twist. S.T.A.R.S. member, Rebecca Chambers, and her other teammates make an emergency landing in the woods nearby only to discover an overturned military police vehicle. Bodies are strewn about along with evidence indicating that convicted felon, Billy Coen, is lurking around. The group splits up to cover more ground and [...]
2015 was a hell of a year for gaming, with AAA and indie games alike producing some of the finest titles we’ve seen in years. But honestly, I haven’t played most of the games that will likely appear on my fellow journalists Games of the Year lists. So what did I play? A whole bunch of JRPGs, doujin games, and other small scale stuff, my favorite of which you can read about below.
(In no particular order.)
1. Undertale (PC)
Few games this year have garnered as much praise as this little homage to quirky JRPGs of years past, and with good reason as well. As Undertale is a game that simply sucks in players with its mix of quirky humor, strange [...]

But even for those of us with a tight budget, that shouldn’t mean that we can’t pick up a few games on the cheap to guide us through the end of the year.
First up we have Persona 4 Golden. The updated Vita port of the excellent 2008 urban fantasy RPG of the same name, Persona 4 Golden weaves a story of murder, self-discovery, and obscure religious and mythological references that combine to make it perhaps one of the best RPGs of all time. While the original version of the game is available for [...]
The gritty far future universe of Warhammer 40k is set to explore new territory later this year in Dark Nexus Arena, a hybrid MOBA-FPS game set to launch in Steam Early Access on December 9th.
Dark Nexus Arena seeks to breaks new ground in the MOBA genre by featuring a skill-based attack system, in which the player must aim each strike against their foes, while those being attacked will have the chance to dash and take cover to avoid being injured. The game also does away with the traditional 3-lane gameplay made famous by games like League of Legend in favor of a more open arena, a move the developers say was made to make the game feel closer to the brutal style of [...]
Title: Hylics Genre: Indie, RPG Developer: Mason Lindroth Publisher: Mason Lindroth Release Date: Oct 2, 2015
A copy of the game was provided by the publisher.
Cooper Union graduate Mason Lindroth started developing video games in the winter of 2012, for the 25th iteration of the Ludum Dare game jam. The theme was “You are the Villain” and he published this short side-scrolling adventure game called ASMOSNOS, with a yellow dancing alien that was sent to annihilate a planet and pull off some sick moves. The story was casual and the controls were basic, but the visuals were different. Made on the game creation platform Stencyl, Lindroth embraced pixel environments that [...]
