Japanator Doesn't Recommend: Bangai-O HD Missile Fury

Get ready to jump on the Xbox Live! for NIN2-JUMP

I'm not sure how I should describe Cave's upcoming action-platformer, NIN2-JUMP. The gameplay mixes classic platforming with some unique visuals that seem like an ukiyo-e puppet show on crack -- not that that's a bad thi...


BlazBlue gets ready to squeeze every last penny from you
