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 ...

TGS 2014: So this is Final Fantasy XV

Well, it took 'em long enough - the better part of a decade - but it looks like ordinary players might actually see Final Fantasy XV in playable form before the heat death of the universe. And it might even be fun, judg...

Hajime no Ippo punches a PS3 trailer right into your gut

I've never been much into boxing. It always looked so painful to watch two dudes (or ladies) smack each other in the face, even if the faces being smacked weren't mine per se. That said, boxing fiction is rife with tales of ...

Here's Red Bull's (surprisingly good) Japanese game music documentary

I never would've imagined that a company best known for a drink designed to keep you awake for all-nighters doing your college thesis would come up with a pretty great documentary series about Japanese video game music, but ...

Even AKB48 want to kick Nintendo's butt

Nintendo's been ramping up the hype train for its next Super Smash Brothers game, and in Japan, that means getting AKB48 involved, naturally.  It's a good thing that one of the key features of the upcoming 3DS and ...

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 21-22

If the last couple of episodes seemed tailored towards characters who still hadn't forgiven Kakyoin for his actions way back in episode 2, this latest two-parter feels addressed to make Polnareff pay for his comparatively greater sins. After all, dude got Avdol, one of anime's best black men, killed. He needs to suffer.

Annotated Manga: Bleach chapters 594-595

Now that we've reached this latest stage in Bleach's Quincy v. Soul Reaper freak-off, I'm pretty glad to see that Tite Kubo still has a good handle on how to escalate a fight. Because there's nothing quite like raising the stakes.

Here's everything you wanted from Sony's TGS presser

Annotated Manga: Naruto chapter 690

Welcome (again) to the second incarnation of this week's Annotated Manga for Naruto! It seems that some technical foulup wiped all the text from the recap while the watchers were looking the other way (or asleep). Never fear, though, for a good ninja always keeps a backup, and this is it. Apologies for the mixup!

TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer

Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year. The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Ka...
