Jimquisition: Monster Boobs And Plastic Children

Oh, Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided, pervy, creepy, sleazy, weird, freaky, pervy, pervy, pervy Team Ninja. Your boobs are so bad. Your justification of said boobs are worse. Boobs. FYI, I fully admit today's episode is silly and quite possibly pointless. It was, however fun to make and I hope it is fun to watch.

Review: Dead or Alive 5 photo
Review: Dead or Alive 5
by Ian Bonds

Remember when Dead or Alive wasn't just a fan-service, minigame-ridden, volleyball-infused, T&A bounce fest? These characters were actual fighters, who regularly beat the crap out of each other in a tournament instead of lazing on a beach in a strange pseudo dating sim. When are they going to go back to the series' roots? When will Dead or Alive be a fighting game again?

Oh, wait. How about now?

Tecmo Koei's TGS 2012 line-up is what you'd expect

No to say that's a bad thing! In fact, seeing Tecmo Koei's line-up for Tokyo Game Show 2012 reminded me that I never did get around to playing Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, which I'm led to believe is a mistake. There's...

Classy post of the day: Dead or Alive 5 box and swimsuits
