For many of us, the effort to translate Final Fantasy Type-0 seemed like a project that would never near completion. The game released in Japan back in 2011, and while so many had been waiting on pins and needles for Square ...

Go West! Sixty-Four: You got Puyo all up in my Tetris by Elliot Gay
Welcome to another riveting, awe inspiring, and emotionally draining edition of Go West!, your [inconsistently] weekly column about Japanese video games and some masochistic idiot.
This week, the game of all generations hits store shelves.
Ok, maybe that might be a wee bit hyperbolic, but the reality is that I'm super duper hyped. We also have a handful of other important-ish releases for pretty much all of the major consoles, so hang onto your butts.
Greetings ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the 60th edition of Go West!, your [inconsistently] weekly column about Japanese video games, a foreign guy in Japan, and Idea Factory.
When I first started Go West! nearly two years ago, I had no idea what I was going to do with this column or how long it would last.
I still don't.
That being said, I would never have been able to take GW! this far if it weren't for you beautiful people, and for that I thank you all. I'll be sticking with it until I'm dead in a ditch somewhere, buried in Idea Factory otome games.
As far as first attempts at hunting action go, Namco Bandai's PSP game God Eater did a bang up job. Rather than outright copy Capcom's success with Monster Hunter, they went in a different direction by amping up the speed of...
Have you been sleeping well? Been looking for a way to remedy that? As it is October and October means scary movies and stuff, right? (Interestingly enough in Japan that time is summer, actually.) So XSEED has let the prices of Corpse Party and Corpse: Party Book of Shadows drip down to just $9.99. Honestly recommended if you just gotta stay up the whole night and eep! Sorry, I am still a bit jumpy from Corpse Party. Both titles will be on sale from October 22 until November 4.
That’s not all. While these two corpse-filled games are just on sale, XSEED is also slashing, cutting and gutting the prices of other games. Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls and Sumioni: Demon Arts are now $10 apiece, Unchained Blades is down to $20 and Way of the Samurai 4 hits a permanent price of $30. You can see the exact details on XSEED’s Facebook page.
So this is kind of random.
