Tekken 7 Retribution updates Steven 'Don't Call Him Steve' Fox's outfit

Bandai Namco has provided a ton of new screens for Tekken 7 Retrbution, their update of sorts to the base game, and it gives us a few new looks at characters like Paul, Hwoarang, Devil Jin, Alisa, and of course, Fox. Interestingly enough, A...

See Ramza in all his Dissidia glory right here

Over the past few months we've covered all of the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade character reveals, and the last character is a pretty welcome surprise -- Final Fantasy Tactics' Ramza Beoulve. You can watch him in action for the first t...

Now you can throw a fit in public with Mario Party Arcade

You're leading by four Stars in Mario Party -- it's down to the final few turns -- and you've won most of the minigames so far so you're pretty sure the Minigame Star in the bag. Then your friend uncovers a hidden Star, gets a free Boo...

 
Obscure Video Games
Ninja Baseball Bat Man is not a baseball game. It also has nothing to do with Batman. It's actually a wacky arcade beat-'em-up released in 1993 by Irem (maker of R-Type). You might assume it's just another example of Japanese...   read

Square Enix finally reveals Ramza in Dissidia Final Fantasy

Finally! After dancing around it for weeks and teasing his lower body, Square Enix has showed off Ramza's character model in Dissidia Final Fantasy. He's currently set to debut at some point in the near future on the arcade edition in Japan...

Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator is getting yet another new character in Kum Haehyun

While we were all expecting Dizzy to make a triumphant return in the near future, it looks like there's a newcomer on the block for Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator -- Kum Haehyun. This character joins Johnny, Jam, and Jack-O. Dizzy is still...

Akuma is likely coming to Tekken in Japanese arcades in February

It's official: Akuma is invading the Tekken world, and he's probably coming to Japanese arcades soon by way of a series of location tests. If you happen to reside in Tokyo, Fukuoka, or Osaka, you can catch the tests from February ...

 
The Bug Butcher review
When I first heard about The Bug Butcher last year, I thought it looked like a nice modern take on the bubble-popping shooter Super Pang. But I held off. I have a regrettable history of playing games in Steam Early Access onl...   read

Ramza is coming soon to Dissida Final Fantasy arcade

Right now, the roster for the Dissida Final Fantasy arcade edition is complete. Well it mostly is, outside of Final Fantasy Tactics' Ramza, who will be added in "soon," according to Famitsu. Ramza was initially teased back in Nove...

Namco is partnering with Hooters in Japan to open up an arcade

I've already professed my love for Japanese arcades, having visited some for the first time a few months back, but this is something else entirely. Namco Bandai is reportedly teaming up with Hooters to bring a "Gaming Barside-B" concept arc...

A new fighter is coming to Pokken Tournament soon

Pokken Tournament currently hosts 11 characters (counting Pikachu Libre and Shadow Mewtwo), and it looks like one more will be revealed on December 10, as per the official Twitter account. I'd wager that the new character would hit the arca...

Y'shtola rounds out Dissidia Final Fantasy's cast as a representative of XIV

She might not be well known at all in most Final Fantasy circles, but XIV fans will recognize Y’shtola the Conjurer. She was featured in the original build of XIV, before moving into the reworked A Realm Reborn, and th...

Final Fantasy's Vaan isn't a street rat: I don't buy that

I've always had a lukewarm relationship with Final Fantasy XII, and its protagonist, Vaan. The only thing it really did for me was ape Final Fantasy XI's combat and add in gambits. Post-game content was pretty cool compared to most of...

Hahahaha: Tidus shows his stuff in Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

Tidus (Teedus) is kind of an awkward protagonist. X was the first fully-voiced Final Fantasy game, and Square really tried to force in some strange subplots and scenes meant to evoke emotion -- instead, they ended up being weird ...

Does anyone like Zidane? I don't hear him talked about much

Whenever the "best" Final Fantasy discussion comes up, VI is almost always near the top for a reason. Then you start getting into uncharted territory, with games like V and VII getting thrown around. But one I see most ...

Dengeki has straight gameplay, too. The Koei Tecmo-made Dissidia Final Fantasy is chilling arcades in Japan for a while, but could come to PS4 at some point.

Fan favorite Terra takes a step up to the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade plate

Terra is often a fan favorite Final Fantasy character -- heck, anyone from VI is usually a top choice. What makes her especially badass in Dissidia is that she can Trance mid-fight, turning her into her Esper form. She's also...

My main man Cecil shows his stuff in latest Dissidia Final Fantasy trailer

Final Fantasy IV is still my favorite entry in the series. Having replayed it every few years or so I wouldn't say nostalgia fuels that claim, as it still has a fantastic soundtrack and an amazing cast -- "Spoony Bard" and all. That's...

Watch Firion smack up Lightning in this Dissidia Final Fantasy vignette

I think one of my favorite pastimes, as I've come to realize over the years, is watching character-specific trailers for fighting games and brawlers. It may seem excessive for those of you who don't partake in these genres, to have a video ...

Can I...have Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade now?

A lot of people have been down on Dissidia in the past, but I see it as a spiritual successor of sorts to Square Enix's Ehrgeiz (good God that game could use a remake). I'm a bit bummed, then, that the arcade version will likely ...

Dark Mewtwo is actually Shadow Mewtwo

Just a bit of housekeeping. The new Mewtwo form copped over the weekend is officially Shadow Mewtwo, not Dark Mewtwo as early sleuths sussed. Makes sense what with its "Shadow ___" moves. Not too much else revealed in the characters' debut...

Pokken Tournament is so unpopular in one Japanese arcade, it's being removed

There's a Gardevoir in this Pokken Tournament trailer

The National Videogame Arcade is doing something cool for Robin Hood Day
