From the void, the gods of darkness and light created Agarest, a most perfect and divine world. As the generations passed, paradise sadly fell to the ravages of time. War darkened the skies and Agarest soon became a torturous hell as the gods divided and immense armies clashed, desecrating the once beautiful...

Laughing Jackal's next title Flame Over now on Steam

Flame Over, Laughing Jackal’s brilliant firefighting, action roguelike will be released on the 28th May. If you pre-purchase the game you’ll get a massive 40% discount off the usual price of $11.99. Flame Over looks stunning and is both rock hard and a hell of a lot of fun, so while I might be a bit biased on this one, I’d definitely recommend you check out the games Steam Store page here

Agarest: Generations of War 2 is out now



I’m thrilled to say that Agarest: Generations of War 2 is out now on Steam! If you’ve pre-purchased the game then it should now be available to download from your Steam library.

If you’ve not already bought the game then never fear, the 20% discount (with an additional 13% reduction if you own either of the previous Agarest games) doesn’t expire until next Thursday. That means there’s still time to pick Agarest 2 up for just £11.99 (or even less!)

SCOPRI L'EPICA STORIA CHE PRECEDE AGAREST: GENERATIONS OF WAR


Dal nulla, gli dèi dell’Oscurità e della Luce crearono Agarest, un mondo quanto più perfetto e divino. Ma con il passare delle generazioni, il paradiso venne tristemente corroso dal tempo.

So, I was looking trough some JRPGs on Steam, and this one caught my eye, and after I read some reviews, and watched some gameplay, I decided to buy it, and I didn't make a mistake.


Graphics 7/10
In this game graphics aren't that great, though character portraits are very well done, and they are perfectly lip synced. Battle animations are also well done, though there isn't much to say about it, except the fact that they look pretty and flashy.

Gameplay 7/10
This is a turn based game and it's really slow paced, which is something that I don't like, I'm more into "Final Fantasy"s combat system, then this, but this game has a sophisticated combat system, which is hard to learn. Learning to maximize your combo will take you some time, since tutorial isn't so rich with the required informations.

Sound 6/10
The music in this game is great, but sound effects are very, very bad, let's take walking as an example, when you are walking you just hear "tup-tup-tup" like in some old horror movie, that's the part they could really improve. I forgot to mention the voice acting, that's the thing that they have really done perfectly. It's now ranked in my top 10 voice actings on Steam.

Story 5/10
The story isn't so rich and it's hard to follow, basically you just go around and picking up more teammates who are all girls, and the game just doesn't hype you up to see what's coming next.


Overall 7/10
The game has some problems, but I enjoyed playing it, and I think that every fan of turn based JRPGs should at least try this game.

Do you like anime? visual novel-like story telling? game difficulty with a curve akin to right angle?

Well do I have a game for you.

Jist:
Turn-based jrpg focused on creating skill combos with your entire team.
Oh and kawaii desu anime stuff, full on vn story telling even get to pick a girl to marry.

Pros:
•tactical jrpg
•anime, that is a pro. right?
•the plot and style of the game series has always been very good.
•character variety
•main character creation

Cons:
•difficulty will give you a right hook out of nowhere
•the right angle difficulty curve also applies to the learning curve. Hope you've been collecting and memorizing combos & skills, while staying above the weapons curve too!
•you may become emotionally attached to characters

Final Word:
I own every Agarest game and the predecessor game/s and while they are all nice games I have yet to beat one, even after 30-40 hours of gameplay put into them. They are not fair, and will spike the difficulty without a second though to how much time you will have to spend grinding out levels, crafting gear, and gathering materials. These games actively hate the player at times. You will use gamefaqs. You will curse at your tv/laptop when you have a boss fight that was three flavors more difficult than anything you just faced. You will love the characters.

I wouldn't recommend buying these games simply due to the battle system being a complete kick to the gonads. I will admit I have more money than common sense when dealing with anime jrpg's. Especially ones by Compile Heart, and will purchase them all. I'm such a hypocrite.

This tactics-based game is an improvement over Generations, the overly long first game the series. It is shorter, the UI easier to manage, and crafting elements are more straight-forward. My main complaint is the series still doesn't know what it wants to be. The developer packed so many side-elements into the game that they become chores to manage. They must have been working with a checklist; capturing monsters-check, grinding-got it, unlocking crafting levels-yup. It is tiring and takes away from the stronger aspects of the game.

Overall, the game is average with its strength being the battle-system. Might be worth a Jackson if bundled with all the DLC.

This is a prequel to the game "Agarest: Generations of War" and it has ABSOLUTELY same advantages and disadvantages. Fights are boring as in original game, but the story, talking and relationships parts are still excellent. Unfortunately, this game is shorter than original (2 generations against 5), but it is still very interesting to play and develop world and relationships with heroines.
P.S. I think that it doesn't matter if you play this game before or after playing Agarest:GoW, because I noticed only one character, who is present in both games so they are not really related.

If I could, I'd recommend this game twice!

Agarest Zero: Generations of War is an amazing JRPG, and this is coming from a guy who generally doesn't like JRPG's!

Usually, traditional JRPGS just have the characters 'dancing' and standing still when 'attacking' one another, and in this game instead you are allowed to use AP (Action Points) to maneuver your party into position to attack, defend, support or counter just about anything. When you figure out how you like your party, then strategy becomes key. Characters can actually die if left alone too long without revival (and you can't get them back, really) and they each have very awesome and amusing dialogue inbetween! The game even follows a sorta-visual novel path, and allows you to make choices for the main character.

Very amusing, very challenging (easy at first, but beware later on!) and very addictive. I highly recommend this game!

Word to the wise... Beware those damned pixies, they can hurt 'ya good.

I like this game. The combat system is really interesting and cool. the character designs are great. The characters themselves are pretty cool. The storyline and setting are great.

It's really repetitive. It's really repetitive. I'ts reeeeaaaallllyyyy repetitive. Every battle is basically the same throughout the whole game, just with different monsters. I know, a lot of games are like that. But you really start to feel it with this game. It's really repetitive. After a certain point in the second generation, the game has a huge upspike in difficulty, meaning each battle takes longer to do. I hate how it can take some of the greatest warriors in the continent, working together, a 20+ hit combo to kill a single slime. I'm 50 hours in, and I haven't even been grinding or anything and I've become bored. Maybe I'll finish it, maybe I won't. It's really repetitive.

If you want to play this game to experience the story and stuff, I actually REALLY suggest playing it on easy. Maybe the battles will go quicker and it won't feel really repetitive and you won't become as disheartened as I have.

It's really repetitive - 6.5/10

Vi devono piacere le tematiche dell'erotismo giapponese, altrimenti non sopportereste i dialoghi. Il gameplay, però, è solido e caratterizzato da un'ottima interfaccia e la giusta strategia. Qui la nostra videorecensione: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6WPhYQZY8k

In Agarest Zero, you play as an extremely generic desu hero and try to pick up all those kawaii waifu's so you can have children to fight the evil monsters that are invading the world.

5/5 Sugoi game

But really, it's a pretty solid tactical JRPG/Visual Novel. For the price of 19,99€ i can certainly recommend purchasing it, especially when considering you get a ton of DLC with the purchase that wasn't free when the game was originally released on PS3.

The game is rather long as well, your first playthrough might take about 60-80 hours to finish. You can also port over your character saves from Agarest: Generations of War for some extra stuff.

Agarest: Generations of War Zero is a Tactical Japanese Roleplaying Game a prequel to its predecessor.

The story is set in the world of Agarest literally scarred by a war between the forces of light and darkness.
The game starts with Sieghart a young commander of the Armies of Light and his division assigned to a special mission to collect some kind of trumph card that would win the war. They get attacked by the armies of darkness during this assignment and after repelling the attack Sieghart finds a girl cornered by a sort of lesser god a "Larva" he proceeds to rescue her but gets mortally wounded. In his last moments the girl asks him if he wishes to live and grants him power healing his wounds. This newfound power was more than enough to defeat the weak Larva.

As a prequel the game has lots of references and assumes you know most things about its lore, I would recommend playing Agarest: Generations of War first if you plan to play this one, though not necessary as after ending the game you can make a new game+ in Extra Mode which allows you to play a digest version of the first game and you unlock profiles which enlighten you further.

The game's art style is quite good, though some of the female characters have provocative clothing, it is far from what most people seem to describe. There is some fan service though which is completely secondary to the game, which are the CGs, appart from some that might be a little awkward, they are all very well done and are a nice little bonus.
The voice acting and the translation I am not able to review thoroughly as I don't know Japanese, but since I've watched enough anime (and asked the opinion of a few friends who understand Japanese) I'd say the translation is good apart from maybe a few exceptions. The Japanese voice acting like in most JRPGs is nice because it usually beats any english dub.

The gameplay is the same as the first:
- Turn based combat, in each turn you have a move phase and a action phase.
- The party consists of 1 to 6 members.
- Each turn you gain AP (action points) which allow you to move or attack.
- During the move phase you are allowed to move your characters up to their move stat by spending 1 AP per square.
- During the action phase you are allowed to attack (and be attacked) spending AP or both AP and SP for special attacks (called Ex Skills).
- SP is gained by attacking, getting targeted, slaying an enemy or having a party member slain.
- The order in the action phase is determined by a character's AGI and remaining AP for both party members and enemies.
- There are also Extended Areas, which are different to each character, when you link characters through these you can strategize in various ways as they allow you to make combos with more than one character and attack monsters that would otherwise be out of the range of certain characters/attacks.
- As you progress through the game you unlock fields, different fields have different sizes and different bonuses/penalties.

I recommend watching a few gameplay videos or a video of the tutorial (if existant) as it would be much easier to understand.


When compared to the first game, Agarest: Generations of War Zero has several improvements:
- The game is slightly shorter which made part of the community happy (on the other hand it lost generations (from 5 to 2) and it has less characters, though you can still have Ellis, Dyshana, the protagonists and the heroines of the first game in Extra Mode and the others by DLC).
- Vacation Days which are events where you can interact with your party members in order to raise affection levels or unlock certain bonuses/secrets.
- Costumes which are literally costumes for every female character which change depending on their affection level, these will only appear in Vacation Days unless chosen otherwise in the options menu (I regret to say that after unlocking the costumes it isn't possible to chose which one appears it will always be the one that corresponds to the affection level).
- Card System, now this in my opinion is the best improvement you can costumize the first main character making him much more versatile than the one from the first Agarest.
- The portraits are no longer static and are considerably better.
- Beach scenes!
- Vashtor in white armor, 'nuff said.

Ignoring the last improvement, in all seriousness, the game is enjoyable (In my case I'd say a lot of fun as I've also played it before in PS3 and I'd say the PC version is better as I found it more fluid).
Personally I just thank Ghostlight for porting JRPGs to PC since it has few when compared to consoles.

As with the Origional, Zero is a true work of art. The Generation system is vastly improved from the original, and the affection system adds its own level of stratagy. The gameplay, while at first glance appears simple, is, in a word, "Multi-Layered". Mastering Esoterica and Combination arts is key to not only surviving some of the most difficult battles, but also recieving some of the best items in the game. With that in mind, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Agarest Wiki that contains truely invaluable information on the game itself.
While i love the game, I have to mention two dissapointments I have in concern to the actual game itself. First, the monster capture and combination system can be a boon to any player. If only for the Title System and the High End items you can get by using it. However, capturing monsters can be a chore sometimes, and often feels like a waste of time due to the grind required to max it out.
Second, the blacksmithing system has one infuriating element that i wish they had eliminated from the origional. That is the Random Item system that occures while smithing. On occasion, while crafting items, instead of the desired item you recieve a random craftable item instead. This still uses the materials, and after 3000 craft attempts, I only recived one item I cared about, or was useful. Instead you generally recive items that are either utterly useless, or are low level and already abundant.
As to the Steam download, it has one major glitch i was unable to remedy. Unfortunatly, there is a glich where on many characters in both conversation scenes and in the gallery, the characters images are obsucered by all the other alternate appearances being layered over eachother at the same time. This takes away from the character and story driven expreance that is essential to any JRPG.
On a possitive note, the Steam DLC is absolutly fantastic. Without it, many cassual gamers may find the baseline grind to level up and aquire both Gold and EP to be a daunting task. After purchasing the DLC it was almost like starting a new game + without ever having to have played the game.
I would recomend this series to anyone who enjoys JRPG's or RPG's in general. For a more epic experience I suggest playing the original and then loading over the completed game data to Zero.
All in all, I'd give this game a solid 9 out of 10.
As a simple footnote I would suggest that due to suggestive sexual content in this game, parental supervison is advised.
