I just bought this yesterday, and while normally these games aren't my cup of tea, I'm really liking Fuga so far. It's a shame it got so little advertising, as I agree that this game is great. Though I do think it relies too much on narration at times and I would have loved to see even more scenes of the characters interacting with one another.

Well, I guess without a big bank behind it, this was the best they can do. Cute cat designs and World War II, sounds quite interesting. Says it is on PC, hopefully it is on Steam.

It is. It's also on the Switch and both XBox consoles. It's supposed to be on PS4 and PS5 as well, but mispricing issues made CC2 pull it out of there so they could rectify the issue, and some other stuff involving the Deluxe Editions.

I hadn't heard much of this game before, but this review and the artstyle has sold me on it.

Somewhat reminds me of the pre-production work for Valkyria Chronicles where the Darcsens were originally the Bast Folk, a race of cat eared people.

Todd Ciolek got me into SoLaToRoBo all those years ago on the DS and it quickly became one of my favorites. Yes, it's entirely too easy (all that fun customization on the Dahak goes to waste when the game is such a cakewalk), but the game sticks with you.

Seeing a new Tail Concerto direct that emotional grasp towards a tragic end sounds amazing. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game. Full thanks to Todd, because I never would have heard of this otherwise.

anime-to-game adaptations stretching from Naruto and .hack


Actually, .hack originated as a multimedia project so they're not really an anime-to-game adaptation (I'm pretty sure the anime and games are all separate from each other and do not cover the same stories but I'm not well versed in the .hackverse.)


Anyway, this game sounds interesting! I played solotarobo and while I didn't finish it (purely because of distraction) I enjoyed the atmosphere, the world setting and the music.
I'll add this one to my wishlist.

The Soul cannon thing sounds interesting.

Yeah, they're all separate but connect in various ways (and sometimes reuse the same character designs with recolors lol). The only adaptation is .hack//G.U. Trilogy movie which (badly) adapts the G.U. games.
