Doki Doki Kusoge deals in all things Japanese culture, be it video games, anime, music, or film. You can find the latest info translated from Japanese rags, reviews, previews, and other weird features. Despite its namesake (kusoge means shit game), DDK does not deal exclusively in garbage video games. Its founder just has a masochistic tendency to subject himself to them. No, it's not healthy.
Elliot G. runs things here. A former Destructoid and Japanator contributor living in Japan, he likes to make himself suffer by playing the bad stuff so you don't have to.

Edited: Included the covers of Famitsu and Dengeki this week. Hot.
Some quick new details from a magazine interview with Hashino Katsura.
-The MC transferred to the city as a 2nd year in the spring.
-He lives in a cafe run by an old friend of his parent’s.
-The MC has a certain problem, and if he doesn’t fight back against whatever it is, some kind of distressing future will come to be. The sequence in which he looks like a prisoner takes place in what could be called a prison of the soul. Basically a prison in his mind I guess.
-The game takes place in Shibuya and various other places in the megalopolis.
-The dungeon in the PV is not randomly generated, and the main areas in the game will consist primarily of places that would make sense for a phantom thief to infiltrate. Various gimmicks included as well. No mention of random dungeons being in, but not a confirmation that they’re 100% out either.
-Something resembling S.Links will also be in?
-MC’s main Persona is called Arsene (?). Looks like it could be a rif on the famous thief Arsene Lupin.
-Instead of the “カッ” seen in previous Persona summon sequences, it looks like it’ll be “ブチッ” instead. EDIT: for clarity, the latter is the sound used to refer to something snapping. Think someone’s patience running thin and hitting the breaking point.
