If you thought the title Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars had something to do with sexual reproduction (sorry kids), then you are correct. The game is the sequel to a Japan-only game titled, Conception: Please Have My Baby. Nuff said. The game was recently announced for a launch in North America with an April 15th release date. I’m sure those of you who have seen anything from this game before now are a little on the edge about whether or not you should purchase it, and–all sexism aside–you should be. The only way to truly know you’ll like a game is to play it for yourself. Atlus, being the kind-hearted company they are, are preparing a demo for 3DS owners on the eShop. It will be ready for download (free of charge, of course) on March 25th! If all goes well, we should even have a review on the game when it hits North America next month. I’ll definitely be posting my impressions from the demo once it hits the 3DS eShop.
Now, in order to keep these modern devices up-to-date, we have to keep them constantly updating. In accordance with this, both the Wii U and 3DS eShops will be shut down temporarily so they can make it better, fix a few things, and add some new features! This is going to be happening between 1 PM and 5 PM PT. This is going to be quite some time without the amazing joy of downloadable games, but it is worth it for a growing gaming community!

THQ closed up shop in 2012, which limited the availability of their Wii U launch title, Darksiders II, in stores and on the system’s eShop. Well, Nordic Games has since then gained rights to the series, and put the digital version back up. If you haven’t played it yet, this is your chance. Here’s to more Darksiders adventures in the future!

“My inspiration for the gameplay of Moon Chronicles—specifically in terms to the game flow and level design—was more from Super Metroid than the FPS Metroid games,” Watsham shared. “However, the stylus control method was absolutely inspired by Metroid Prime Hunters on the DS.”
“One of the main ‘Metroid’ aspects that we incorporated into Moon Chronicles is the ‘gates’ or progression blockers that must be returned to once the solution has been acquired. In Super Metroid this is usually accomplished by collecting a new power-up, whereas with Moon Chronicles it is largely story-driven or involves accomplishing a task or collecting a special item to gain access to the new area and progress through the game.”
“Another key element that I love about the Metroid series is the sense of many secret hidden pick-ups scattered all about, requiring the player explore beyond the main path of the game, which improve the player’s attributes in some way,” Watsham continued.
“This is where we utilize the Remote Access Droid (RAD) in Moon Chronicles, enabling the player to navigate the RAD unit into small ducts that Major Kane cannot enter in order to disable force-fields to allow Major Kane access and collect special items or progress into new areas. The RAD also provides a great sense of puzzle solving, which is another key aspect of the Metroid series.”
“There is a chance that each enemy destroyed will drop a pick-up that helps your current situation,” Watsham says. “You’ll find that you will typically get what you need at that moment, whether that is ammo for your Muon Pistol or a health pick-up. This serves as a great way for the player to feel the need and satisfaction from destroying enemies.”
Do you love the quirky characters of the Persona series? Do you enjoy dungeon-crawlers like Etrian Odyssey? Then Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth might be the perfect game for you. The spin-off game for Nintendo 3DS was previously only available for Japan, but Atlus USA has announced their plans to localize it for their Western audiences. We are not sure yet if the game will be a download-only, or if it will get a physical copy for North America, but we do have a launch window. The game hits the United States this Fall!

Get your butt over to Amazon.com and get yourself a copy!
