Salutations, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to another rip roaring edition of Go West!, your [maybe] favorite column about Japanese import game releases. 

Much to everybody’s collective relief, some games actually came out this week, and they’re pretty rad. We have a creepy, timely, horror game from the folks at NIS, a remake of Monster Hunter’s biggest rival, and a few visual novels that may or may not be your thing.

Anyhow, with the formalities out of the way, let’s get this roller derby started.

Ok, this isn’t a roller derby. That’s a lie. My bad.

Hey there buttercups, and welcome to another episode of Go West!, your not-quite-weekly column about new Japanese video game releases. I’m hoping that if I keep using out-of-fashion words to describe you all, eventually it’ll catch on. It probably won’t.

This week brings with it… not a whole actually. That said, it’s not a completely empty schedule. We have an unlikely sequel and another game in that one franchise that keeps getting new games. Not exactly drowning in riches, but hey, you take what you can get.

Tally ho!

Howdy folks, and welcome to another zany, wacky, absurd edition of Go West!, your [sometimes] weekly column about the latest Japanese game releases. 

For what feels like the first time in months, we have more than just a single big new title this week. Now that summer is coming to an end, the Japanese video game industry has sprung back to life so that it may once again entertain us with endless visual novel and RPG releases.

This week? A revival of an old classic, an anime licensed game that probably won’t suck, and a brand new IP from an old developer. Oh, and some other random stuff too because why not.

Let’s get this party on the road!

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the latest and greatest and most fabulous edition of Go West!, your [formerly] weekly column about the latest Japanese game releases. 

Long time no see, everybody. Episode fourteen of Go West! was published on July 8th. It’s the end of September. 


A lot of things happened since then: I moved across the world, got settled in, and then games stopped getting released for a bit. Imagine that. But Go West! is back, and with the Japanese release schedule ready to heat up again, we won’t be going anywhere.

Let’s do this thang.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, welcome to another riveting episode of Go West!, your [sometimes] weekly column about the latest Japanese game releases.

I have no objections to this week’s titles.

I almost feel cornered by the quality of the games coming out.

Maybe I should investigate the source.

How many more times can I include obvious references to the big video game of the week?

A lot more.

Welcome, people who read this somewhat weekly column about the latest Japanese import games.

Welcome to a week of big releases.

There are too many games.

I can’t hold all these games in my hands.

Please, somebody save me.

Salutations, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to yet another action packed edition of Go West!, your weekly-ish column about new Japanese game releases, my beautiful hair, and rainy season.

There’s not a ton out this week, but there are a handful of notable releases sure to get you guys and gals excited. Our buddies at Idea Factory also make an appearance! Huzzah!

And if they don’t? Well, I suppose you could always just buy Natsuiro High School and suffer like I did.

Please don’t.

Greetings, visitors, and welcome to yet another warm and fuzzy edition of Go West!, your weekly column about Japanese import games, companies going under, and saluting those we’ve lost in battle.

After what seems like an entire month of silence, the Japanese games industry is finally releasing new titles again. This week’s list is full of niche things, but I know that’s exactly the sort of stuff you folks enjoy. I’ll be picking up a few new games myself; one particularly for streaming purposes, the other because I owe it to the developers in question to play their final game.

With that out of the way, let’s get this party started!

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night. Welcome to yet another edition of your favorite [mostly] weekly column about new Japanese game releases, otoge, and more otoge.

This week, otoge.

Yes, I know it’s been over two weeks since the last episode of Go West!. Unfortunately, the period surrounding Golden Week over here means not a whole ton of exciting releases in the following weeks. That of course leaves us with not a whole lot to talk about, hence the radio silence.

But rejoice, my children! GW! has returned, bringing with it a host of otome games and a single galge.

I can feel the excitement in your cries of joy. Fear not, I am here to satisfy you with beautiful man bodies (and a few woman bodies), slathered in oil and other random juices that happen to make people shine unnaturally.

Or maybe it’s just sweat.

It’s probably just sweat.

Welcome back, lovely men and women, to yet another delightful edition of Go West. This week, the big one. From the makers of that one game with a small animal that got crucified, or that other game with Jesus and robots, or that other game with the weird faces, comes another game about weird faces and giant robots.

I know you’re excited. I am too.

There’s a handful of other stuff releasing this week, including a new 3DS game that’ll probably sell a million or so copies, and a bunch of Vita stuff.

Come explore the future (past?) with me!
