Persona 4 Ultimax won't be region locked for North and South America

After raising some ire region locking Persona 4 Arena (one of the only PS3 games that is region locked), Atlus decided that its follow up, set to release in the North and South America this fall, "will not be region locked for the Americas."  So this time around you European folk might consider importing instead of waiting on Atlus for a year to release it in Europe.

Haha, this alternate Mario costume in Super Smash Bros.

I love Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai's description of these palette swaps: "The character farther in the back isn't from the Imperial forces, and the character in the front is not the infamous drum-playing pupp...

Finally learn to play fighting games with this free guide

I'm currently trying to get good at Bushido Blade and cursing Square Enix for not making a new one, but I do often talk about wanting to get good at one fighting game -- Persona, these days -- much like I talk about one ...

When's Marvel? Just consult the EVO 2014 schedule

EVO 2014 is this weekend. We had a lovely time covering it last year, though it doesn't look like we'll have a get together watch party this time around. That's okay. There are three different streams to watch home and a...

Final Fight's birth name was actually Street Fighter '89

Did you know that? It's an interesting tidbit of information, and you can find that and more in the latest Did You Know Gaming video, which covers Final Fight this time. It's a series a lot of gamers have conveniently overlo...

Cuphead is 40% done, going to be a trilogy

I can't believe Cuphead has only been in my life for less than a month after its quick E3 showing. I'm so attached to it already. It's the game I didn't know I needed. Forget these tired, 20-year old nostalgia trips. Ev...

I'm jealous of Persona 4 Ultimax's Japanese-only Premium Edition

Here's a look at the slip cover that will adorn the Persona 4 Ultimax Premium Newcomer Package, which comes with the story from the first game so you don't have to go out of your way to catch up (it will also be sold sep...

Persona 4 Ultimax: Naoto & Kanji's Japanese voices are throwing me off

The best Persona 4 character already got trailered, but I guess Atlus still needs to finish up. This week it's Kanji and Naoto, both with voice actors that are throwing me for a loop. It feels like it should've happened...

A fighting game about mages with armies of robots

Have you heard of Magical Battle Festa? Chances are pretty good the answer to that question is no. The indie fighter launched quietly this spring, with little in the way of promotion or fanfare. But, as luck would have ...

Persona 4 Ultimax's Adachi will be free for first week

Okay, clever use of color presets, Atlus.  Adachi will be free to download for the first week of Person 4 Arena Ultimax's North and South American release. After that first week, he will revert to paid DLC, so get your free character while you can.
