QCF: Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm

n the Indie Megabooth at PAX Prime 2012, we looked at Yatagarasu, an indie-produced fighting game with some pretty intense developer pedigree. Now, I'm not nearly the best VS. Fighter by local standards - hell, not even by household standards—but Yatagarasu, even in its early form at PAX Prime 2012, was balanced enough that I could take on and defeat all comers.

Yatagarasu has come a long way since then, and has been released to Steam by Nyu-Media as Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm. As a pretty big fan of the King of Fighters series, of course I was jazzed to get into the action, given its ex-SNK/KoF staff and similar character sprite work. But how has it held up?

Not especially well, I'm afraid to report. But more on that in a moment. There's still lots to like about Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm, as we'll see. Primarily, your typical, standard modes apply here; Arcade, Story Arcade, Versus, Network Versus, Training and a bevy of options from online to local, control to difficulty, replays, ranks and everything in between. The level of customizability in Yatagarasu :AoC is pretty impressive, and allows players to really fine-tune their experience with a bit of technical know-how.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 133 - Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser

n episode 128 of Bullet Heaven HD, we took a look at Astro Port's Armed Seven, a sidescrolling mech-based shmup. It's not the only mech based "pure" STG they've released though; the 70's anime-soaked Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser is also a pretty neat addition to Astro Port's roster. But how does it stack up?

QCF: Cherry Tree High: I! My! Girls!

f you dig Persona the way I do, 773's Cherry Tree High Comedy Club was a game that should have grabbed your attention last year.

It sported a social link-styled system that closely resembled Atlus' masterpiece game-changer, though its setting is obviously much less dark. I had always felt that a little something was lost in translation with Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, but it was fun nonetheless. With its moderate success, Nyu-Media saw fit to bring over the sequel to Cherry Tree High Comedy Club to Steam and other platforms as well, in the form of Cherry Tree High: I! My! Girls!.
