While perusing the “You Might Be Interested In” section on Amazon I came across Langrisser among many other RPGs (which, for the record, I was interested in!). I steadily watched this title go cheaper and cheaper, and after reading some reviews I discovered why: it’s been blasted by all kinds of outlets as being a boring, lackluster strategy RPG. Well, when it went below ten bucks a few weeks back I was upset I missed my chance to own a copy of this terrible game, so I jumped on it this time when it was equally cheap. Also worth noting, it came with the pre-release artbook as well! So that’s good, I suppose.

Another game I’ve had my eye on for a good while, Rebublique is a Kickstarter (I think?) game in the visual novel genre. You interact with Hope, a denizen of a totalitarian republic, as she tries to… I don’t know, overthrow the government I guess? I’m really not too sure about the entire story, but I think to premise and visual novel style alone sound promising. Plus it looks pretty niche, and I like a good sleeper hit!



I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
