Atlus is dropping Persona onto the PSP in America on Sept. 22
So if you're an RPG gamer, you might know a little something about the Shin Megami Tensei games. Made by Atlus, these games are rare and obscure - almost mythological - on the Western side of the world due to their low print numbers and tremendous price inflation. It's not exactly new for Atlus to reprint their out-of-print games (this has been done in the last year with both Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga, both for the Playstation 2). However, the original Revelations: Persona is far and above the most looked-for game in the Shin Megami Tensei lineup, and it's second only to Tactics Ogre in the entire Atlus collection. It wouldn't be at all uncommon for a complete copy of the original PSX hit to sell for over $100, sometimes going as high as $150. So imagine the shock when Atlus announced that they would be porting their second-hand hit to the PSP, placing the game back on store shelves and selling it at a $40 price tag. Further more, Atlus is also going to be putting the game up on the Playstation Network for $40. Now the game that was once considered impossible to find is going to be in regular print and available at any local Gamestop/EB Games.
The PSP version is going to contain a completely relocalized script, a new (or redesigned) user interface, new musical tracks in the soundtrack, balance adjustments, all-new animation sequences by the animator of Devil May Cry 3, and new voice overs. In addition to all that, the retail version (as opposed to the PSN version) will contain the entire game's two-disk soundtrack. In traditional Atlus fashion, however, the soundtrack will only be included for a limited time.
The game is launching on both in retail and on the PSN simultaneously on September 22.
A quick review of Shadow Complex for the XBox 360 Arcade
This game reminds me so much of Super Metroid (SNES), it's unreal. Get it? Cause it's made with the Unreal engine... eh... tough crowd.
Anyway, for 1200 MS points (that's 15 bucks, American) you will get about 5-8 hours of story mode game play the first time through. More towards 8 if you strive for 100% completion. You will almost certainly want to play through a second time (either to see what you missed or to try to beat it with under 13% of the items for an achievement).
There are a ton of hidden rooms and power ups that will keep you searching every nook and cranny for hours. If you do happen to grab every power up, you will feel like an invincible badass (because you will be, practically). Truly, every powerup is extremely satisfying and they come at a rapid pace.
There are also several challenge maps (again with an achievement for beating them all) that allow you to pit your best times up against your friends (or the XBL community at large).
If you have an Xbox 360 and a gold membership and a spare 1200 points, there is no better way to spend those points right now. (Especially if you loved Super Metroid or Castlevania).

If you haven't played this game yet, this is one of the best games of all time and for 60 bucks you get everything. I swear you'll have a great time with this game Jimmy!
Immediately reminds me of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra?!
WTF am I saying. I’m saying the truth! Ok maybe it’s the other way around since Marvel Alliance 1. G.I. Joe probably tried to copy Marvel Alliance. Regardless, there already seems to be way more thought and depth to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. MAU2 is a beat‘em up style with RPG elements The game overall kind of reminds me of Gauntlet or TMNT.
I just beat the first boss, Electro. Whipped his ass easily. I set the game difficulty on hard, there is a hardest mode, but it’s locked.
Uh-oh moral decisions … Why can’t I just pound the shit out Jimmys and be done with? The choices I first had were not clear if they were good or bad. One told me I was diplomatic and the other said I was defensive. Hmm, I’ll have to figure out which one is the most evil as I go on.
What’s wrong with Gambit’s face Jimmy? His nose is huge and well, he just looks really fucked up. That’s one of the worst character models. Let’s see if he pwns.
Gambit seems to be weak at the moment, but I’ll level him up. Juggernaut rails though forget it! Juggernaut and Gambit team up to do a fusion technique. Juggernaut pulls a huge chunk of the earth or floor up, Gambit throws a bunch of charge cards into and then Juggernaut slams it into the enemies. Totally awesome!
Now I’m starting to get the dungeon crawler feel. I like it. This game is fun so far and I will continue to play it. I’ll let you know how I feel about the entire game when I beat it.
