Getting Familiar With Japan’s Arcade Music Games

Ever since I moved here last year, I’ve made a point of getting out and doing things rather than just holing up in my room. It was rather intimidating at first since everything is so different, but iit got easier as time went on. One of the things I really wanted to do was try…

8th Generation Memories

Even though the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are now here and the first few games are already out in the wild, the now-current generation still doesn’t feel real for me. I still see games coming out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and frankly it’s going to be hard to get one of…

During this week’s Nintendo Direct Mini, the RPG developer released a new trailer for the game, and they even dropped a release window: 2021 worldwide.

Persona 5 Royal: It’s Good to be Back!

Ever since I first gave it a try back in 2017 I’ve been a pretty big fan of Persona 5. I love it’s stylish presentation, its rockin’ soundtrack and thoughtful gameplay. The story has some decent twists and turns to, but the real stars of the show are definitely the characters. I genuinely enjoyed my…

Hatmonster’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

Well, here we are in the 2020’s. It was inevitable, but somehow I just didn’t think it was ever going to get here. Regardless, the 2010’s were a wild ride for us gamers, weren’t they? So much has happened and so many excellent games came out that it really was difficult to keep track of…

Persona 5 Scramble’s Opening Movie is Pretty Stylin’

It may still be a year away, but I’m actually kinda psyched for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. It’s not so much because I’m dying for yet another Dynasty Warriors-style beat-em-up game, but rather another helping of the world of Persona 5. I’m told this game takes place after the events of Persona 5…

Ann Gets Her Own Persona 5: The Royal Trailer

Ann Takamaki has been a favorite of many Person 5 players since even before the game’s original release. Part of that is undoubtedly due to her character design, but there’s also something to be said for the character’s personality too. Ann is portrayed as a very upbeat sort of person who spends much more time…

‘Persona 5 R’ Revealed to Be ‘Persona 5: The Royal’

Back in December, Atlus released a brief trailer teasing the existence of a brand new project involving Persona 5. No real information was given of course, but fans at least got the project’s code name, “Persona 5 R” to chew on until the next bit of info dropped sometime in March. Well, that time finally…

Resonance: Beneath the Mask

Persona 5 is an excellent game. This statement might as well be a cliche in regard to this game as it’s received nothing short of universal praise ever since it released in September 2016/April 2017. It’s not hard to see why when looking at it from the outside and even less difficult if you’ve had…
