Review: Demon Gaze photo
Review: Demon Gaze
by Dae Lee

There's something comforting and satisfying about Japanese turn-based RPGs, growing your party and exploring the unknown in the name of loot and power. Every progressive inch forward is one step closer to realizing your ultimate demolition team, and along the way are formidable opponents that continually challenge you to step up your game. I'm admittedly a little picky with my RPGs, but when I find one I enjoy, it's just like curling up with a good book -- and Demon Gaze is undoubtedly one of them.

Sony unleashes JRPG sale on PSN for Golden Week
by Pedro Cortes

April 29 is the beginning of Golden Week, a series of holiday over the course of several days that's been converted into a sort of national spring break. In order to celebrate it this year, Sony is discounting a ton of Japanese games on PSN through May 5. Ranging from action games to role-playing games, the sale significantly drops the price of these games, some of them going for less than half of their original prices.

Here are some of the highlights from the list of games on sale:

  • Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross (PS3/PS4/Vita/PSP) for $4.99, or $3.49 with PS+
  • Devil May Cry HD Collection (PS3) for $14.99, or $8.99 with PS+
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3) for $19.99, or $11.99 with PS+
  • Muramasa Rebirth (Vita) for $12.49, or $7.49 with PS+
  • Persona 4 Golden (Vita) for $19.49, or $14.62 with PS+
  • Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (PS3) for $19.99, or $10.00 with PS+
  • Zone of the Enders HD Collection (PS3) for $17.49, or $10.49 with PS+

.You can bet that'll be snapping up a couple of these games come pay-day. Anybody else going to splurge on any of these titles?
