Nights of Azure: Hack, Slash… and Command - Gust, as we’ve established, is a company that doesn’t like to do things completely conventionally. As such, it’s entirely fitting that a Gust action RPG isn’t quite what you’d normally expect from the genre. Nights of Azure is a fascinating game from a mechanical perspective in numerous different ways. Drawing influences from a variety of sources … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Hack, Slash… and Command
Nights of Azure: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Nights of Azure is one of Gust’s most mechanically interesting games — particularly in how much it differs from the company’s usual output — but it also has a fascinating, ambitious narrative. Combining a deeply personal tale with a more conventional JRPG-style “save the world” narrative, the overall atmosphere of the game is very distinctive … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Nights of Azure: Sights and Sounds - As we’ve discussed over the course of the last few articles, Gust’s Nights of Azure has a very strong sense of its own identity, both as an individual work and as part of its developer’s catalogue.

Visual Novels and Eroge Review

A blog for reviews... that's really not much of a blog

Regarding Being Saved by Anime, Manga, Light Novels and Visual Novels (AMLNVN).

A humble, but mostly less than half-assed, blog of a pessimistic Otaku that was saved by Anime first, Manga then, just to be saved once again by Light Novels and Visual Novels; and thus wishes to share the beautiful world that is 2D. Yet, you will find mostly rants. Also available at 7thStyle.
