A tribe called dragon quest

Dragon Quest Heroes is out this week in Japan and now we have a direct look at the differences between the PS3 (below) and PS4 (above) versions of the game, aside from being informed that the latter if 60 frames per second, ... read

In addition to the PS3, PS4, and Xbox One in March, it looks like the upcoming Bladestorm: Nightmare will be arriving on Steam in May. Nightmare is an expansion and semi-sequel of sorts to the original game, complete with new... read

Hyrule Warriors had the most successful launch of any Musou game in the U.S.


I still hate Liu Bei
Jan 30
Nintendo's gambit with one of its most profitable properties seems to have paid off. Koei Tecmo's Hyrule Warriors is the fastest selling of any entry of the Musou series released in the United States. Great DLC and iconi... read

Text box attacks and more in Dragon Quest Heroes


Dragon Quest x Dynasty Warriors
Jan 28
Dragon Quest Heroes is coming to PS3 and PS4. Non-exclusive property as it is--in fact, we've seen a lot more Dragon Quests on Nintendo consoles recently--it seems to be the PlayStation console answer to Hyrule Warriors, which Jordan is somehow still playing. I think he's even going to buy an amiibo for it.   read

What the heck is going on with this Hyrule Warriors concept art?


Rated 'E' for 'Evil half naked woman bathing in blood'

The Hyrule Warriors strategy guide came out a while ago, so this art isn't exactly news, though it was news to me as I stumbled upon it earlier today. It doesn't look like many others have taken note of this bizarre sketch fr... read

It's not as new as I would have liked, but it keeps me going
Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new ... read feature

Cucco's are still deadly in Hyrule Warriors


That's Hyrulian for 'chicken'

If you aren't familiar with the Zelda series, Cuccos are adorable little chickens who never attack the player character for any reason. Ok that's a lie, if you mess with a Cucco, you'll likely wind up dead, as they summ... read

Grass cutting CONFIRMED for Hyrule Warriors


It made the cut!
Aug 04
Cutting grass is an important part of The Legend of Zelda, you know. So, we were happy to hear series producer Eiji Aonuma confirm during tonight's Nintendo Direct that this time-honored tradition would be making a glorious return in Hyrule Warriors. Who needs online multiplayer when you can chop up grass by your lonesome? Hyrule Warriors Direct [Nintendo] read

Yep, Sheik is definitely getting some Hyrule Warriors playtime from me


First a badass baton, now a harp
Jul 30
Sheik's character trailer is out for Hyrule Warriors, and I'm satisfied. With equal amounts harp carnage, ninja moves, and speed, Sheik is a forced to be reckoned with. Out of all of the fighters I've seen so far, Sheik is one of the fastest, if not the fastest in the game. I love that "ninja run," where characters have their arms backward, while destruction is happening all around them. read

Link suplexes giant rock cylinders and smashes in Hyrule Warriors


Glove slap
Jul 22
The most fun bit here is definitely picking up enemies as they flail ineptly. The rest is pure carnage as Link wrecks underlings and even a giant mouthed boss worm with these clobbering gloves and ball and chain.  Much more brute force than Zelda with the wind waker. read

Ride wolves & sticky hand slap fools with Midna in Hyrule Warriors


And I guess she knicked Link's hookshot
Jul 07
Midna is pretty brutal in Hyrule Warriors. PETA won't be happy about her riding wolves. Less happy about tossing one as a projectile. Then there's the 25 cent machine sticky hand coming out her head. It'll be covered in dirt and won't stick to a thing in a day.  Check out trailers for Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, and Agitha. read
