Looks like it’s time for me to jump back into the manga review thing — my copy of To Terra… Vol. 2 has arrived, and I can’t wait to read it. I loved the first volume, and the second promises to be —
— wait a minute. That’s not… that’s… it’s….
Gah! Curse you, Pokémoooooooooon!
Man, that’s almost as bad as learning that Nintendo has purchased a majority stake in Monolith, raising the distinct possibility that in their desperation to get original RPG content on the Wii they’ll revive the Xeno series. There are two ways this could be acceptable: (1) KOS-MOS themed power-ups in the next Kirby game, or (2) Paper Xenogears.

Jeanne D’Arc looks pretty solid! It’s an original tactical RPG for PSP. As in, not a port. Crazy, eh? Meanwhile, Revenant Wings is not quite as good as it should have been, but unlike some people I’m not really convinced it’s a total loss. The fact that it’s basically just a Final Fantasy XII facelift for Heroes of Mana is a letdown, but it’s not the cakewalk that it might sound like — the difficulty ramps up pretty quickly. And watching mobs of Final Fantasy monsters beat the crap out of one another at your bidding is pretty much awesome.
Oh yeah, weekly Retro Roundup. But you probably could have guessed that much.
