Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn to hit PS3 this summer

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam is a hell of a drug. I'm going to decline to state just how much time I've spent chasing 100% completion in that game, but know that it's a lot. Well, it looks like I'm about to kiss my summer goodbye: Namco Bandai ...

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2

"A fusion of Dynasty Warriors and One Piece? Sign me up!" That was my reaction to the news that One Piece: Pirate Warriors (reviewed) was in production, sometime near the end of 2011. It was one of the titles topping my "games to import" li...

Ace Combat Infinity sounds like a proper Ace Combat game

Namco Bandai's just dropped a new teaser for Ace Combat Infinity, and I'll be damned if what's shown doesn't look like proper Ace Combat. Let's go down the checklist of "Ace Combat-y Things", shall we? Vaguely awkward-sounding fi...

Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows
