Persona 5 Strikers is just one of the many great titles coming out this month, making February a good month for getting those hours in. One of the bigger releases is Persona 5 Strikers, which is a musou-mashup with the hugely popular Persona 5. Sounds like a match made in heaven? If the reviews are any indication, then indeed it is! As of writing, the game has a Metacritic rating of 85 for the PS4 version and 81 for the Switch version, and is looking to be another hit from Sega and Atlus, proving thus far that the Persona franchise is beloved by fans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR3z7eFJNHU PlayStation Lifestyle gives it a 95/100, saying “There really isn’t a lot that Persona 5 Strikers does wrong. The combat is rewarding, the story is interesting, and the characters/setting are fleshed out, all with a good soundtrack. It’s by no means a perfect game, but…

I guess the tagline “It’s about time” is finally accurate this time around, as Crash Bandicoot is finally making its way to the Nintendo Switch, alongside the next-gen versions, on March 12. Announced on the Activision Blog, the latest installment in the Crash Bandicoot series make its next-gen appearance, bringing with it “enhanced 4K resolution, faster loading times, and more”. Specifically, PS5 and Xbox Series X will enjoy the game at native 4K 60fps, with the Series S upscaling to 4K. All this will come as a free upgrade to owners of the base game on the last-gen consoles. The PS5 version, in particular, will receive DualSense upgrades that will make use of the adaptive triggers, as well as support activity cards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIrTfLA4f58 Our review of Crash Bandicoot 4 calls it a “wumpin’ good time”, and while it is as good as a Crash game can get, it is also…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAkIIQLjPS0 I was both excited and dreading playing Little Nightmares II after going through Little Nightmares just recently. Excited because I was looking forward to the continued adventures of Mono and Six but dreading it because if the predecessor was any indication of the terrifying things I’ll be facing down in the sequel, I don’t know if I could take it. Recently, I’ve been playing quite a lot of horror games of varying degrees of content. There are the conceptually terrifying but aren’t terrifying on screen (Control), there’s the straight up scary because it’s designed to be scary (The Maiden), and there’s The Medium. However, there’s something fundamentally primal with how Little Nightmares presents their monstrosities, and I’d rather take Lady Dimitrescu stomping on my neck any day of the week. While our demo impressions colored us impressed with the game, there’s always this underlying doubt that this latest installment…

Can’t get enough of Atelier Ryza? You could always buy the PHP1.2 million statue or you could settle for the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy from Koei Tecmo, a deluxe pack that is arriving on the PS4, Switch, and the PC on April 22 which features Firis, Lydie, Suelle, and my girl Sophie as previously seen on the PS4 and the PS Vita a few years ago.

Cyberpunk 2077 may not have been the massive hit that everyone was expecting but once upon a time, CD Projekt Red came up with arguably one of the best games in recent memory in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game was so widely acclaimed and in fact, was the most awarded game since 2015 until The Last of Us Part II beat it just recently. But enough of that, what we want to say is that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is massively discounted on PSN right now, and for the price of around PHP500, you get the full game and all of the DLC for it, which includes both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. That’s an 80% discount from the original price, and possibly the lowest price its been in quite a while. https://twitter.com/witchergame/status/1356965665450594306 The game would normally cost you $49.99 or around PHP2,500 but from…

Initially scheduled for an early 2021 release date, a fair expectation would be around February or March. We didn’t think “early” meant July, as a new trailer just dropped, confirming its new release window of July 2021 (I guess you can make an argument for “early” that it’s not Q4 2021). Now seen in their publisher’s website, the surprise announcement got me excited knowing that summer isn’t too empty after all. https://youtu.be/q3OaU-nmMa4 Check out our demo impressions of Cris Tales, where its impressive time magic mechanic that affect both in-battle and the game world revitalizes the classic JRPG turn-based battle system. It is available for download on PSN, Nintendo eShop, Xbox Live, and on Steam. Cris Tales is now available for pre-order and its collector’s edition looks amazing.

The full package will set you back for $149.99 (around PHP7,500) and will include the following items: 1 Mass Effect Legendary Edition Metal Game Case (Game not included)1 Morality Spinner Pin1 N7 Acceptance Letter2 Canvas Art Prints (Including one you can only find at the BioWare Gear Store)Comes in a full color custom box featuring the game’s key art This specific BioWare Gear Store edition will be exclusively sold through their online store, but it remains to be seen if other retailers will carry the Collector’s Edition as well.

EA has finally confirmed the release date of the highly anticipated Mass Effect Legendary Edition since it was first announced late last year. Fans of the series won’t have to wait too long as Commander Sheperd and the crew will be dropping on May 14 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. PS5 and Xbox Series will get to play it via backwards compatibility and not through a dedicated next-gen port. Along with the official announcement, a stunning new trailer has been revealed and it is absolutely glorious. Literal chills up my spine moment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8i53TtQ6IQ It has been reportedly delayed once before, due to improvements being made to the first game, and indeed the gameplay changes are significant, not just to the controls, but to the AI and quality of life improvements. The game will be running at a smooth 4K 60fps clip but BioWare has confirmed that the game…
