Trouble Brews Over the Heads of Atlus

We all saw the warning signs a fairly recently when Index, the company that owns Atlus, was investigated for fraud. At that moment, fans of Atlus’s work began to worry and even wonder what would happen to the company. But a few were calm and told us all to wait and see. I hate to say it, but the time for waiting is over. Index is set to start selling off it’s “operations,” and as such, we can only assume Atlus is on it’s way to a new home. Fans of Persona and Shin Megami Tensei, you now have permission to be nervous about your favorite franchises.

This is exceptionally cruel to fans of Persona, as it wasn’t so long ago that Atlus registered a domain for Persona 5. Let’s hope they can get the game out and the alleged misdeeds of their parent company don’t end the series before we get to see what their newest game would be.

RetroVirus (PC) Review

When I saw this game, I knew I had to have it. It wasn’t a question of if, it was when and how. Back in the day, I was a big fan of the Descent series of games, and finally a new game in the same style was making it’s way out to market. This game could have sold me on anything, but after finishing playing it, I think putting it on PC was indeed the best choice they could have made. Sadly, the reason for this is not a happy one, but a matter of brute strength.

Still, all this is of little important compared the all important question of how was it. And all I can do is smile at the question and say “come on in and see.”

From the “wtf, how are you so dumb?” files: People Petition to get the Old Xbone back

Did you have to read that title a few times? Cause this is no joke. Right now on, there is a petition to get Microsoft to return the XBone’s policies to require always online and be exactly what it showed itself to be during E3. Those same policies that caused hard-core followers of the Microsoft machine to stream away to pre-order PS4s, and even trade in their 360s to get PS3s in protest, are being requested by petition.
