If you thought Xbox One was suddenly selling well in Japan, you're wrong

After its less than inspiring launch that was seemingly defined by more traffic cones than people, it's tough to have any confidence in the Xbox One in the Japanese market. Hell, Microsoft itself didn't, seeing as it wasn't a...

Review: Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed photo
Review: Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed
by Brittany Vincent

When you're faced with imminent danger, what's the first thing you do? Do you gear up to fight back? Do you see if you can land the first punch? Or do you take all of your clothing off? I'm guessing that's a pretty uncommon reaction, though it's something you'll get used to seeing on a regular basis within Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed.

The otaku-come-Yakuza special is actually Akiba's Trip 2 in Japan, and it's the first time the series has reached Western audiences, who may or may not have been ready for its bizarre machinations. But for those who were willing and able to take the trip, what awaited them was a strange and colorful world full of plenty to do and discover.

Oh, and a whole lot of underwear.

Atlus breaks silence on Devil Survivor 2 for 3DS

Atlus hasn't spoke about Devil Survivor 2: Break Record since the dawn of time. At least that's how it feels. The studio announced the role-playing game in early 2013 and has remained pretty tight-lipped about the project ever since. Until now, that is. Devil Survivor 2: Break Record will be summoned to Japan on January 29, 2015.

Castlevania's Koji Igarashi has put his 'dream game' on hold

As a huge fan of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it was exciting to hear that long-time series producer Koji Igarashi had left Konami to make the kind of games he wanted to make -- "the same kind I think fans of my past g...

Explaining 4th dimension mechanics in translation is probably hard

Tokyo Game Show held its annual Sense of Wonder Night, an awards show for unique sorts of games, typically indie. Ten games were up for the prestige of being the most wonderful (in the less casual sense of the word).  W...

Steven and I rode a carousel of loneliness at TGS

Steven and I took a few minutes out of our packed schedule of eating curry and playing videogames to ride a carousel at Tokyo Game Show. Don't tell Dale.

Bladestorm lives up to its name, looks nice on PS4 and Xbox One

I'd never played Bladestorm, the historical action/strategy title that seems to be a bit of a cult classic within the Dynasty Warriors type. It's still a bit odd that Koei Tecmo is reviving the 2007 PS3 and 360 game and that ...

Really, this is the only way you could ever play Onechanbara at TGS

If you want to play Onechanbara Z2: Chaos at TGS 2014, this is how you'll be playing it: looking into windows strategically placed over where nipples would be. Obviously. Were you expecting something else? It looks like an ex...

Tokyo Game Show 2014 kicks off today (also, floor gallery)

Tokyo Game Show 2014 has officially kicked off today, running through September 21. As always, these first two days are for business (yeah, right) and the remaining two add in the public (and the cosplayers; sweat).  Thi...

The new Pink/White PS Vita is super cute

I'll stick with my teal blue Japanese PS Vita that I brought home from TGS last year. But I'm still digging the new Pink/White model, on display at TGS 2014. It's just like mine with the all-white face, with the back taking all the color.  This new Vita launches in November in Japan, priced at 18,980 yen. How's your boring North American Vita?

The latest Fatal Frame trailer is weirdly uplifting at the halfway mark

After brief glimpses, box art, and screens, we've finally got another look at the upcoming Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden in the form of this trailer out of TGS 2014. The trailer does a decent job of building th...

Here's Swery holding a monkey and standing next to a yellow plastic woman

Was that headline not descriptive enough for you? What did you think would be in this post? There's Swery nonchalantly holding a stuffed monkey next to a weird yellow plastic statue thing. He did that during the entirety of h...

Here's a giant robot fighting a monster in the new Earth Defense Force

I completely missed that there's another Earth Defense Force on the way. Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is an updated version of EDF 2025 for PlayStation 4 with additional content. Does that sound compel...
