Meiji era Ace Attorney game gets its first trailer

Ace Attorney is easily one of my top five favorite video game series. It's weird, it's got fantastic characters, and the music gets my blood pumping at all the right times. I loved Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and to say I was excited for...

Review: Strider photo

Review: Strider

I have a confession to make. I really love the original NES Strider. Yes, it's glitchy, unpolished, and generally a confusing oddity. I understand all of that. But for every strange design decision that didn't work, there are flashes of gre...

Attack on Titan invades Monster Hunter Frontier G

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 to end up in Mo...

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 Software's Dark ...

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 the franchise is...

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 than being jamme...

Japanator Arena: Alteisen Riese VS Blodia

Japanator Arena: Victor Von Gerdenheim VS Franken Stein

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Blade may be an amazing character in his own medium, but his swordsman skills could not match D's 1,000 years of experience. When the Daywalker realized that he couldn't stand up to Dracula's son head on, he re...

Here is another Monster Hunter themed 3DS!

Well now, this is odd. A new Monster Hunter 4 limited edition 3DS was announced, which in and of itself is not weird, but read that carefully. 3DS. Not 3DSXL. Weird, since the XL seems to be the big deal now, does it not? Then aga...

TGS 2013: Partying with Sengoku Basara 4

I've never been much of a fan of Koei's Dynasty Warriors series. That isn't to say the appeal is lost on me; the idea of smashing through hundreds of weak soldiers has always been an exciting one. I suppose in my case, DW just seemed to tak...

Asura's Wrath Perfect Artworks is a tome of awesome

Asura's Wrath was one of my favorite gaming experiences of last year. It was loud, crazy, often beautiful, and had a story that was more touching than it had any right to be. To say the game's art style is beautiful would be a gross underst...
