Review: Magical Beat photo
Review: Magical Beat
by Chris Carter

No matter what the climate is in the industry, there seems to be an overwhelming demand for battle puzzle games. That's ok with me though, because ever since playing Yoshi, Dr. Mario, and Wario's Woods for the NES, I've been enjoying the fierce competitive element that these games can bring, and playing with a formidable rival can be quite the rush.

The newest kid on the block is Magical Beat -- a rhythm puzzle game for the Vita by Arc System Works. Naturally, they couldn't resist putting in Guilty Gear and BlazBlue tunes, which are easily the best part.

Check out Labrys in Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold

I don't remember if I ever beat Shadow Labrys in Persona 4 Arena on account of me being bad at fighters. I do want to go play it some more now, though. I only made it that far with Chie. So much visual novel bits (and fights...

Arc System Works' new teaser site: BRCS?

"She who fights with monsters might take care lest she thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." That text and the name "BRCS" are the only clues you have for this new teaser site from Arc System Works. We'll know more in about seven days.  BloodRayne? Oh my!  Hmm: BloodRayne Continuum Shift? BoodRayne: Corgi Selfie?

Review: BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma
by Ben Pack

If the pacing of Street Fighter was baseball, and Marvel vs Capcom 3 was basketball, BlazBlue would be a free-for-all cage match match between two over-caffeinated nine-year-olds.

And I mean this in the most endearing way possible.
