By Heath | May 12, 2010 at 9:41 pm

In case you missed it, Janelle had some pretty grat coverge of one of the most underrated RPGs of recent years, Resonance of Fate. Most of it came out before the game’s release, so you may have missed it. If you’re among those who heard about this game recently (of which there are many), check out these essential reads:

Keep Your Eye on the Blog: April 16 edition

By Janelle | April 16, 2010 at 9:34 am

In case you’ve missed them over time, here’s a rundown of blog posts by RPG companies and people about all kinds of cool stuff.  Also, we’re expanding this to social media, like Twitter and Facebook (and whatever ADD app will emerge in the future). This week, among other things, we’ve got a bittersweet post from Sega about the closing of Phantasy Star Universe servers, daily Chaos Rings info from Square Enix DLG, and XSeed’s brand-new Twitter.

Sega updates Resonance of Fate website

By Heath | March 2, 2010 at 10:52 am

Now that we’re within two weeks of release, Sega has relaunched the official Resonance of Fate website.  The previous version of the website hadn’t been updated since the Tokyo Game Show, but now there’s a little more meat to it, including free music downloads.  Not long ago, Janelle cleared this game and kindly wrote a review here.

Resonance of Fate/End of Eternity reviewed

By Heath | February 19, 2010 at 7:31 am

Janelle is pretty great.  She now delivers the first English-language review of End of Eternity, to be called Resonance of Fate when it hits North American Xbox 360s and PS3s next month.  Check the review here.
Also, the Battle System feature has been expanded to include more Everything, including a brand new section on targeting and some more references to link the thing together more clearly.

Everything You’ll Ever Need to Know About Resonance of Fate, Part 1: the Battle System

By Janelle | February 9, 2010 at 10:38 am

Here’s Part 1 of our comprehensive feature on the upcoming Resonance of Fate, developed by tri-Ace and published by Sega. Hopefully by using this, people without the game can get a feel for how complex the battle system is and how it works, or people who already have the game and are unclear on some points can find some answers. I’ve answered your battle-related questions here, too. You’ll probably notice that it’s massive; this isn’t meant to be read in one sitting. Jump around, skim, find parts that are interesting to you. Use the table of contents below to navigate.
As in, I'm Still Alive after writing this.

Dress up like Resonance of Fate’s Reanbell in Phantasy Star Portable 2

By Heath | February 3, 2010 at 9:19 am

Remember Fruit Roll-ups commercials, where they’d make something wacky and then be all like, “What fun fruit roll-ups will we roll out next?” Extra costumes are becoming like that, in some games more than others. Phantasy Star Portable 2 for PSP is on board for this one, adding an outfit and gun from the PS3/360’s End of Eternity (Resonance of Fate).

Taking questions for Resonance of Fate feature (plus scans)

By Janelle | February 2, 2010 at 8:36 am

Hey everyone, it’s Janelle (the one that wrote yonder Final Fantasy XIII review). The next big project I’ve been tackling is Resonance of Fate (actually End of Eternity because it’s a Japanese copy, but even then they can’t seem to stop referring to it as Resonance of Fate). But here’s the thing. Resonance of Fate is complicated. Really complicated. Passing bits of news, short impressions and video that attempt to explain the sheer bulk of this game’s unusual…ness are woefully inadequate. So I’m working on a rather large feature, tentatively titled “Everything You’ll Ever Need to Know about Resonance of Fate.” And because I’m not omniscient, I need your help.
