October 3 – October 9

I was all set to pick Paper Mario: Color Splash this week. I’ve even pre-ordered the game. It will be in my living room this Friday. My kids may have finished it before I even get home from work.

September 26 – October 2

More like Endless Tutorial, amirite?

September 19 – September 25

Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Shin Megami Tensei series, and it says a lot about the pace at which these games release that getting a new one just three years after Shin Megami Tensei IV feels sudden. There was a nine-year gap between Shin Megami Tensei II and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturn. There were ten years between Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei IV.
