This Week’s JRPG With a Wacky Title

Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland (PS3 & PS Vita, June 24th)

Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland was a PS3 RPG released back in 2010. Atelier Rorona Plus is a remake of that game — yes, a remake of a game that’s less than five years old. The Atelier games focus on female characters and complex item crafting and are generally good, whimsical fun. If you, like everyone else, missed this one the first time around, you may want to give this remake a look if you’re hungering for a new JRPG and can stomach generous servings of cute.

This Week’s Racing Game

GRID Autosport (PC, Xbox 360 & PS3, June 24th)

The GRID games look like fairly generic racing games on the surface, but they also feature some sim elements, such as the ability to manage your own race team. GRID Autosport should be another solid outing.
