Shenmue enters Dead or Alive 5 thanks to mods

Forget the Dead or Alive 5 Last Round nude mods. This is where it's at. A modder named Esppiral used their retexturing skills to turn DoA's Jacky Bryant into Shenmue star Ryo Hazuki, and Akira Yuki into Longsun Zhao. Even the...

Review: Bladestorm: Nightmare photo
Review: Bladestorm: Nightmare
by Josh Tolentino

Bladestorm: Nightmare is not a Dynasty Warriors game.

That bit of information might be good or bad news, depending which side of the fence one falls on with regard to Tecmo Koei's long-running brawler series.

At the same time, though, the game does manage to capture just enough of the essence of Dynasty Warriors to drive away those who dislike it, while disappointing those who come in hoping for a more conventional entry into the franchise. 

Which is a shame, as despite being an almost eight-year-old design, Bladestorm still has a few tricks its more popular cousins could stand to crib.

Dead or Alive 5's second ninja pack: $15 for 10 costumes

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is the fourth, final iteration of Dead or Alive 5, but that doesn't mean it can't have bugs or a $93 season pass for all the fighters' additional costumes. I guess Last Round doesn't mean "complet...

There's a max Rupee glitch in Hyrule Warriors

9,999,999 Rupees in Hyrule Warriors. Yeah, I could go for that. The game's community has been working tirelessly to figure out a newly discovered glitch that involves slaying a giant boss (King Dodongo, Gohma, etc.) with a w...

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that j...

Last Round is the third Dead or Alive 5 release, but it has some bugs

Koei Tecmo has been riding Dead or Alive 5 since 2012. If you count the PlayStation Vita-enhanced Dead or Alive 5 Plus, the recent Dead or Alive 5 Last Round release marks the fourth iteration. It has a couple new characters ...

I unlocked all 16 of the Majora's Mask DLC outfits in Hyrule Warriors photo
I unlocked all 16 of the Majora's Mask DLC outfits in Hyrule Warriors
by Jordan Devore

Happy Majora's Mask day!

Over the past week, I've spent I don't know how many hours trying to get through the new DLC in Hyrule Warriors. Even if I did know, I wouldn't say. A lot. Way too many.

To access certain levels, you'll need to use a Deku, Goron, or Zora mask on the Termina Adventure map. Sounds neat, except it's set up such that you have to beat one level to get a mask that can let you reach another mask to obtain the mask you really wanted all along (x10). Then and only then can you make real progress toward stopping that danged moon from crash landing.

The levels themselves are, at times, absurd in their difficulty. New mission types place you in a heated race against A.I. warriors to take keeps, or collect rupees, or rack up KOs. It's you and you alone against their posse which just so happens to include boss monsters because no one said this was going to be a fair fight. I hope most of your characters are sufficiently leveled.

Anyway, enough talk. I managed to nab the last of the Majora's Mask DLC outfits last night and some are downright hilarious. Others, horrific. What's best in life? Darunia wearing a Goron mask.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round director asks PC modders to be 'moral'

When I say "Dead or Alive PC mods," you think ___? You don't need to answer that. The series debuts on Steam this March and if mods created for past console versions are any indication, things are about to get wild. But hopef...

So what's the difference between the PS3 and PS4 versions of Dragon Quest Heroes?

Dragon Quest Heroes will launch in Japan this year on both the PS3 and PS4 -- Square Enix is "interested" in a localization, but we haven't heard anything concrete yet. So what's the difference in terms of the generational ga...

The Majora's Mask music in Hyrule Warriors is so damn catchy

I know it's early, but anyone else dig into the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors yet? I've played about an hour of it today and I'm loving the Termina map, especially its music, embedded above. So upbeat despite that ac...
