I have an unfortunate announcement to make regarding the status of JRPG Update. Following this article, JRPG Update will be put on indefinite hiatus and will most likely be canceled entirely. As satisfied as I was putting these together each week, I have found that it has also become way too overwhelming to do so on a weekly basis and it has reached the point where they are interfering with my other work. Additionally, this is not a case where I can just take a break seeing as how more and more stuff builds up over time, which will just make it infinitely more time consuming when I decide to resume.
Well this week’s update was hell to put together. It turns out that these pages lag horribly when there are too many embedded videos.

That’s what I am here for; to provide my readers with a list of recommended games for purchase along with their sale price. Additionally, there will be Amazon links in place of direct Steam links when possible cause I gotta make some money somehow, but they will only be there if the code costs the same on Amazon as it does on Steam (IE is also discounted). Anyway, let’s begin.
Well, considering that this was the week of E3, it would definitely make sense that we got a lot of new coverage about games, of which JRPGs and JRPG influenced games are no exceptions. Since our only new release this week was the Steam version of Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls, we can just jump right in. Read more
