There are some games that you slowly build into. You’re introduced through a lengthy cut-scene to the wondrous world you’re going to spend the next twenty hours enjoying. You’ll get a insight into the main protagonist and slowly work out what their problems, aims and goals are. Then there are games that immediately shout “RUN” at you.
Taking charge of a quick witted, fleet of foot ninja is nothing new. Destroying numerous robots and escaping the clutches of an evil madman isn’t either. Should you be forced into any of those things, you’ll usually find that sitting back patiently, sipping a cup of tea, surveying the surroundings and carefully planning your strategy works wonders.
While the story of Grand Kingdom is pretty ordinary, the voice actors are generally likable and I enjoyed the visuals, so it was cool to see things through to the conclusion. Though after I did, I discovered that there is some additional story-based questing available.

In the end, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a well-polished and fun game that should be considered owning it as long as you’re not put off by the Norse mythology, language or violence. Owners of the original game may enjoy the enhancements, but may want to hold off for a sale before buying it again. Newcomers to the series will find a lot to like here.

Root Double -Before Crime * After Days is a visual novel that is now available for the first time in English. This novel is both long and intense, with very detailed story arcs, with lots of pseudo-scientific explanations for most of the relevant phenomena, as well as some actual science mixed in for good measure.
Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to Mega Man, is due for release soon, but it seems like people have lost interest in the title. The game was a smashing success on Kickstarter, making over $3.8 million, not including all the extra money it accumulated from Paypal after the campaign ended.
