Those titan hunters sure get around, don't they? It's pretty impressive actually, considering their species is essentially trapped in one place. This time they've managed to dodge harms way outside the city walls long enough ...

Anime-fied: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution getting tons of footage

Well, I guess I spoke too soon when I hoped that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution wouldn't totally be a "filler" game made to annualize the Ultimate Ninja Storm  franchise, like Ultimate Ninja ...

Let Tetsuya Nomura be the judge of your Lightning artwork
by Kristina Pino

Square Enix and DeviantArt have teamed up for a fantastic contest in which artists are invited to create a custom look for Lightning. Anything about her appearance, from her body to accessories you'd want to see on her, are fair game. The only real fine print here is whatever you do, it should fall within the scope of the FFXIII series in terms of any references you make that involve Final Fantasy games.

For a look at all the official rules, a collection of reference art, submission guidelines, and everything else you might need to know, you can check out the official page. At the time of writing, there's still a week left to submit an entry, and as I implied in the heading of this article: Tetsuya Nomura is judging this contest personally. There will be three (3) grand prize winners, who are getting an original sketch from Nomura, a custom XBox360, US$1,000, the FFXIII trilogy for XBox 360, a shirt (unfortunately a fixed size instead of based on the winners), and a keychain.

This contest is open to artists anywhere on the planet, as long as they're over 13 years of age and follow all the guidelines, which are clearly listed on the contest's landing page.

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is filler madness

We missed this trailer a couple of days ago, but now that it's here, I have to say that this is kind of nuts: Bandai Namco has followed through on their obvious intention to turn the Ultimate Ninja Storm series into the anim...

It wasn't too long ago that the frankly incredible-looking Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, the next big fighting game from Arc System Works, went into arcade location testing, but we haven't heard much from it since. That's changed to...

Review: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst photo
Review: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst
by Chris Walden

Don't worry, you're not suffering from a case of deja-vu! In a trend that is becoming increasingly common, we have a Game of the Year equivalent for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, rolling up the DLC and re-releasing it to those of us that passed it up the first time around. Or the fans that are happy to double-dip, I suppose. 

Unlike most other games, Full Burst actually comes with some new content that wasn't made available as DLC, so there's incentive for owners of the original game to check this out. You can either upgrade your current copy for a small fee, or go all-out and purchase a physical copy at a lower price than your typical game. Not bad.

But I've already talked about Ninja Storm 3, so this review is going to focus on what Full Burst brings to the table. Hit the jump to check out what I made of it, but let's just say that the $9.99 upgrade is pretty reasonable indeed.
