It's because some Persona stuff showed up on a Denuvo DRM site. Also Atlus is doing some stuff during the soon upcoming PC Game Show this month and not listed through SEGA. The rumors I'm hearing is that they'll release on the day they're announced, which would be nice if true.


Also recommend CrossCode. If you hate puzzles, it can be a slog but it is otherwise a high quality indie game in my opinion. I assume that the console release this month (Next week I think?) will include the puzzle difficulty slider option to make it easier to complete puzzles that require a bit more precision/speed to properly complete. I know there were some puzzles towards the end of the game that required stupidly precise timing to complete it, which were the only real complaints I had about the game.

Yeah i need to give those a playthrough soon as well.  What is the order anyway?  The new one > deception > truth?  does zan fit it somewhere or can i continue to ignore it?


Prelude to the Fallen > Mask of Deception > Mask of Truth


Zan is just a musou game set in the series universe that has nothing to do with the story. Also because Prelude is translated by NISA so I can't comment on the quality of it, however the two Mask games localized by Atlus were terrific.

The thing I like most about Nioh 2 is... I can co-op from the get-go with my friend without having one of us beat the level solo first. Co-op has more enemies and they have more health. Not sure if there's any difference in damage. Difficulty is okay and enemies don't respawn in co-op when you hit a shrine like single player. The 'death bar' can be pretty unforgiving in some ways too in co-op.


One of the most annoying things so far is the need to acquire proficiency in ninjutsu and onmyo in order to take more advance dojo missions once unlocked. The best way to raise them? Damaging enemies with them.

Looks like the Trails from Zero fan translation is finally releasing this Saturday, the 14th. They even went as far as recreating the original trailer in English:



Oh and the PC demo is out for Cold Steel 3 on Steam. NISA hired the new porting company created by Durante. So it shouldn't be a shit show like other NISA ports. He also released a patch for Ys VIII on PC to fix a lot of the issues a month ago or so as well that includes experimental local co-op. Check out the month old AMA if you're interested.

Looks like there's a complete fan translation for the original Sakura Wars/Taisen on the Sega Saturn. Not sure how many are interested, but I wasn't sure anybody else would mention it.
