Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth: The Kotaku Review Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth: The Kotaku Review

When I first started Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, I was having an absolute blast.

As we flew through conversations about bachata, gospel, R&B, soul, house, and more, my friend mentioned that ’90s music made up a significant portion of his palate. “You know, there’s a lot of anime and video game music…

What I Know About Surviving In Sekiro I Learned On The Volleyball Court What I Know About Surviving In Sekiro I Learned On The Volleyball Court

The spectral foe towered over me, her sheer size outmatched only by her overwhelming poise. The pole arm she held in one hand was twice the size of my character, and the loose robes and prayer beads draped over her hulking figure only served to make her more intimidating.

Trying To Solo Overcooked Perfectly Was A Mistake Trying To Solo Overcooked Perfectly Was A Mistake

Here’s what I knew about Overcooked when I started playing it for the first time yesterday: It’s primarily meant to be a multiplayer game, it can be stressful as hell, and solo play requires controlling two quirky little chefs plucked straight out of a claymation exposé on failed health inspections.
