Review: The King of Fighters XIV

Final Fantasy XV photo

Despair: Final Fantasy XV delayed to late Fall

Eyes of Heaven Review photo

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is the only property with such, well, bizarre characters, insanely disproportional art, backbreaking victory poses, operatic plot, and enough bravado to carry all of this on machismo alone. Thanks to its no holds ba...

Review: Grand Kingdom

Being a fan of the JRPGs, I always look forward to new additions to the genre, especially ones that offer a unique gameplay style that separates itself from other series. While not entirely unique, when first announced, Grand Kingdom caught...

 
 
Yakuza 0 photo

Kick, punch, and crush ass through the '80s with Yakuza 0

The Yakuza games may be an institution when it comes to high-profile Japanese gaming these days, but strangely enough, they've never portrayed Japan's gangster culture at its true height, during the boom years of the late 1980s. These ...

Go full weeaboo with Overwatch's anime intros

Overwatch. It's all anyone can seem to talk about when it comes to hot new games, and with good reason: Blizzard's team shooter is kind of rad, and appeals to a lot of folks. Part of the reason for that is its deep bench of interesting...

Try out Odin Sphere's long-lost 8-bit ancestor

Odin Sphere Review photo

Review: Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Vanillaware may have been making games for close to a decade now, but for my money, nothing they've made has quite surpassed their first game*, Odin Sphere.  Not to say that their other games are bad. On the contrary, as far as making ...

Persona 5 photo

So I translated that new Persona 5 trailer
