First look at Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea in action

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea is the sixteenth installment in Gust's longstanding RPG series, and, by the looks of things, it's shaping up quite nicely. Don't believe me? Go on and take a look at the title's debut trailer if you haven't already. Yeah, this game is absolutely gorgeous.  It's launching on July 17 in Japan and will hopefully come to western shores soon after.

Here's your Tuesday Newsday for the last week or so! Today, we got a sexy new Dragon Age III: Inquisition trailer, some HD footage of Star Citizen out of PAX East, announcements of a new Fatal Frame on Wii-U as well as a bunch of Japanese games being localized. Sony, Microsoft, and ZeniMax have all been trademarking curious terms like "Eden Falls" "Screamride" "Killstrain" "Entwined" and "Nuka Cola."

Review: Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition
by Chris Carter

I still remember the first time I ever laid eyes on a Dynasty Warriors game. It was a cold winter afternoon in 2000, and for whatever reason, one lone copy of Dynasty Warriors 2 was calling my name at a local Blockbuster. I picked it up and subsequently played for days on end -- I was hooked.

Now here we are fourteen years later with Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends (also branded the Complete Edition on the PS4 and Vita), with a brand new Lu Bu storyline, among other features. Like DW8 proper, fans will definitely want to pursue this one.
