Zelda has a lot of unstable antagonists - Ghirahim gets a new video

Mulan's Mushu might not do that tongue thing, but Skyward Sword villain Ghirahim sure does! The vain villain joins the fray in a rather interesting trailer, which shows off his swordplay, diamond animations, and su...

Zant brings his craziness to Hyrule Warriors

Zant the Usurper King was confirmed for Hyrule Warriors recently, and man does he look wacky. In addition to flailing his arms around as his main method of attack you can also get a peek at the man behind the mask during a f...

In all of the Hyrule Warrior Nintendo Direct coverage we never got around to mentioning the limited edition Europeans will see. Which is that you all will be getting that awesome looking scarf that Japan will receive too...

Grass cutting CONFIRMED for Hyrule Warriors

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]

Ganondorf brings a long red mane to Hyrule Warriors

Those flowing red locks rival Amarant, whom I always thought was some sort of chicken man rather than a pasty dude with red dreads, but whatever.  In a nice appeal to nostalgia, Hyrule Warriors also has an Adventur...

Lana's Deku Stick has some major flower power in Hyrule Warriors

In addition to operating as what looks to be one of the most traditional weapons yet in Hyrule Warriors, Lana's Deku Stick power has a bunch of tricks up its sleeve. It can summon giant roots from the ground, shoot projectil...

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

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.

Princess Ruto looks like one of the coolest characters in Hyrule Warriors

We've seen nearly every other character in action so far in Hyrule Warriors except for the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Ruto, and now it's the latter princess' turn to show her stuff. Like Fi, her moves have a bi...

Link suplexes giant rock cylinders and smashes in Hyrule Warriors

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.

PS3/360 strategy game Bladestorm getting remade for some reason

Next you're going to tell me someone is remaking Runaway with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. Well, that would be less surprising. What's a random movie from 2007? Someone's going to remake Stardust? In the Name of th...

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate looks so 'new generation'

Good lord, Koei Tecmo! You've done it again. Just look at all these Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate assets. What are we supposed to do with all of these? Look at them? Well, okay. It seems we have a melange of glamorous "new gene...

Zelda even kicks ass with the Wind Waker in hand in Hyrule Warriors

We've already seen [Queen] Zelda with her signature sword in Hyrule Warriors, but now Koei Tecmo is showing off footage of her conducting death and destruction on the battlefield. It looks like an area-of-effect weapon ...

Behold Fi in all her Hyrule Warriors glory

The Hyrule Warriors trailers keep coming, and now the final video for all of the announced characters has rolled in -- Fi. Her acrobatic style fits right in with the Dynasty Warriors series, and it looks like ...

Review: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn  photo
Review: Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn
by Brittany Vincent

When I was a kid, I loved watching Gundam Wing and the original Mobile Suit Gundam on Cartoon Network. The mecha genre has always been a personal favorite of mine so I tried to capture the same feeling while playing a video game as I had watching Gundam anime and pretending that I was Heero Yuy or Amuro Ray.

With interest in Gundam on the rise in the US after the Cartoon Network runs, some of the games were finally localized for North America. I thought I’d finally be able to play through the stories I loved so much, picking up Mobile Suit Gundam: Journey to Jaburo as soon as it came out and the disappointment I had in that game resonates with me today. It sure didn’t feel like I was in command of the mobile suit that won the One Year War. I felt like I was in control of a robot-shaped RC car.

Luckily, I was finally able to find the game that would finally reproduce the warm and fuzzy feelings that viewing Gundam for the first time did so long ago, and who would have thought it would have come in the form of a Dynasty Warriors game?

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

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.

Agitha the Bug Princess looks fun to play in Hyrule Warriors

So far we've seen footage of Link, Zelda, Impa, and Lana, and now Agitha from Twilight Princess is up. Although everyone else seems to follow the traditional melee and caster roles, Agitha is a bit of a wildcard, summon...
