Atlus released a trailer for the latest game in Sting's Dept. Heaven series, Yggdra Unison. The most notable, and weird, aspect of the trailer? The seemingly random number-writing. Rather than relating to the amount of damage your characters dish out, it's an odd holdout from the game's first life o...

But there's a hiccup in the quest: while you have to get poisoned by the raptors, the Ravasaurs die pretty easily. You need t...

We knew all about Jane's Addiction hitting Rock Band 2 on the Wii this week, but we had no idea the content would show up with so many friends! Joining Jane are Brit rockers Oasis, the very famous Sting, and Dave Mustaine with his crew of metal rockers, Megadeth. If you're looking for new Rock Band...

Atlus has officially announced the North American version of Knights in the Nightmare, the last DS game to come out of that Amazon.ca "leak". Knights is the third game in Sting's "Dept.

Last year, developer Sting announced two new games in their Dokapon board game/RPG series: Dokapon Kingdom for Wii and PS2 and Dokapon Journey! for DS.

Amazon has had a bunch of Atlus games on sale for the last week or so, but they've temporarily dropped the prices of a few of the company's Nintendo system releases (and a few from Majesco as well) as part of the "15 Days, 15 Deals" promotion. The sole Atlus Wii game on the list happens to be Dokapo...
