Come on and get down with Capcom's new Deep Down trailer

Surprisingly for a game that's had four trailers so far and is due out on the PS4 sometime this year, we still don't know a lot about Capcom's Deep Down. We know it's some kind of action game apparently in the vein of From S...

Get ready to party in this 10 min Sengoku Basara 4 video

Capcom's Sengoku Basara franchise (anime included) is awesome, and if you have an opinion that differs from this then I presume that you have no soul. Ok, maybe that's something of an exaggeration, but my point stands that t...

New info from Breath of Fire 6 emerges

I agreed with Elliot's assessment of the initial information and photos from Breath of Fire 6: Guardians of the White Dragon. That initial art looked pretty generic and at least I felt that the BoF franchise deserved better t...

Feast your eyes on the latest gameplay trailer for my favorite Samurai Warriors clone -- Sengoku Basara 4. Okay, I admit calling it a Samurai Warriors clone might be a bit much, but it's difficult to overlook all the si...

It's Over!

Due to his lack of experience with fighting opponents outside of the Akuma and Noah Clan, Allen Walker wasn't GAR enough to go up against Kazuma the Shell Bullet. All it took was one Shocking First Bullet to the face, and the white-haired exorcist went down in a matter of seconds. Kazuma wins! (9 > 0)

There’s something fulfilling about brutally stabbing your opponent with a giant stake after pummeling them with a barrage of heavy missiles and bullets. That being said, of course it's time to feature a brawl between two machines that love to impale their foes in the most brutal way possible.

Big savings on Ace Attorney Trilogy HD right now! photo
Big savings on Ace Attorney Trilogy HD right now!
by Eric Koziol

Ace Attorney 5 got an English release recently, but maybe you are not caught up on the series. Finding the DS releases of the first three games might take some effort and maybe you carry your iPhone around more than your 3DS. Good news. You can snag the HD trilogy for $4.99 right now. That’s the first there games with updated graphics for less than what? A cup of coffee? The individual games go for more if you buy them separately. This is a great deal.

I have been playing it myself and it's easy to say that the iPhone is an even better platform for these games. The touch controls work just like you’d expect, and playing it in the vertical mode allows for easy one handed investigations. If I had a complaint it’d be that it is still in the non-iPhone5 resolution, but I hardly notice it in general.

The download is free and the first two episodes can be played without spending any money, but this is a Thanksgiving sale. If you’re interested, I’d grab it now. Five bucks gets you a lot of content.
