New Valkyria series game coming to PS4
Nov 18

I don't know if it was the Valkyria Chronicles Steam release success or Sega just doing its regular couple years of apologizing with good releases before falling into a funk again, but there is a new, anime-as-hell Valkyria C...

As it turns out, Sega's recent Valkyria trademark was worth getting excited over after all. The company has a new game in the series and a remaster of the original Valkyria Chronicles in development for PlayStation 4, accordi...

I think one of my favorite pastimes, as I've come to realize over the years, is watching character-specific trailers for fighting games and brawlers. It may seem excessive for those of you who don't partake in these genres, t...

Such a tease! Mother 3 is headed to Wii U in Japan

Virtual Console
Nov 12
// Jordan Devore
There was at least one noticeable difference between today's Nintendo Direct in North America and Japan, and of course it involved Mother 3. The latter region is getting the treasured role-playing game on the Wii U Virtual Console next month. It's not our year, apparently. Will it ever be? Perhaps in my lifetime. The port will be available digitally in Japan on December 17, 2015.

Can I...have Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade now?

I've always dug this series
Nov 12
// Chris Carter
A lot of people have been down on Dissidia in the past, but I see it as a spiritual successor of sorts to Square Enix's Ehrgeiz (good God that game could use a remake). I'm a bit bummed, then, that the arcade versi...

Just a bit of housekeeping. The new Mewtwo form copped over the weekend is officially Shadow Mewtwo, not Dark Mewtwo as early sleuths sussed. Makes sense what with its "Shadow ___" moves. Not too much else revealed in the ch...

E. Honda is big in Japan thanks to German graffiti artist Andreas von Chrzanowski, known as CASE. CASE is known for his big art and his latest towering piece is so different, as he spent a day last week painting this 12 story Street Fighter character near the Tennōzu Isle Station in Shinagawa, Tokyo.

If I owned a New 3DS, I'd be all over this Super Mario Maker cover plate. Lotta Splatoon and Animal Crossing love packed in, which makes me wonder what the process was for selecting characters. They made room for Tingle and t...
