This New 3DS commercial shows off Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's Kawaii Touch

I may not be a huge Kyary Pamyu Pamyu fan, but it's hard to say "no" to her style that brings us an abstract take on cute things. Speaking of which, Nintendo made an interesting move when they chose to feature Pamyu in the N...

Of course there'd be a new One Piece: Pirate Warrriors game!

Like death, taxes, and the heat death of the universe, new Warriors games are a thing you can count on, and it looks like Koei Tecmo are readying a veritable fleet of new One Piece-themed mega-brawlers to go alongside t...

The era of warring idols continue with The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls turning into an anime next year. Above is the first real trailer for the TV series with a massively profitable, idol-raising mobile game behind it. It also looks gorgeous.

Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair photo
Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
by Josh Tolentino

I almost don't want to be writing this review.

That's because Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is quite a lot like its predecessor, Trigger Happy Havoc. That means it's one of the few games where "spoilers" really matter, and the more I say about it, the more I risk lessening the experience for potential players. 

Here then, is the quick advice: If you played and enjoyed Trigger Happy Havoc, go get Danganronpa 2 now. It's everything the first one was, and more.

But if you're new to the series, get the first game and play through that before starting off with this one, for despite a premise and cast that's friendly to series newbies, Goodbye Despair works best when taken as sequel to Trigger Happy Havoc

And if you're still hungry for more info, keep reading. No spoilers, of course. That path leads only to despair.

So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: Final Fight

Tonight we take a look at GACKT playing one of my favorite games, Final Fight. He doesn't do too bad, and manages to lay some beatings on Poison and beat level one! However, I have to ask... Cody? I guess I would have taken GACKT as being a Guy kind of Guy. Yes, I judge you by the characters you pick in games... Isn't that the best way?

TGS 2014: Final Fantasy XIII trilogy coming to Steam

I think it's safe to say that I'm in the minority when I say I actually liked the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. They were flawed and the whole Fabula Nova Crystalis affair smacked of troubling hubris on the part ...
