Raphael SMASH in this TMNT: Out of the Shadows trailer

The bad boy of the Turtles makes his proper debut in a new trailer for Activision and Red Fly's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Compared to Mikey, Raph is a lot more aggressive and brutal -- watch him Izuna...

Mikey flips out in new TMNT: Out of the Shadows trailer

When Activision pulled the lid off Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, we admired the combat but sneered at the Turtles' grim-dark makeovers. Then Steven Hansen checked out a preview build, and we all became ju...

Senran Kagura cell phone charms smell like breasts

The marketing of booby ninja school girl brawler series Senran Kagura is simply outrageous. Branded tissue boxes? Facepalm worthy. Themed desserts? Fairly creative. Cell phone charms? Well, that doesn't sound so bad... ... oh...

Review: Super House of Dead Ninjas photo
Review: Super House of Dead Ninjas
by Fraser Brown

After climbing down 350 floors of traps, monsters, and ninja ghosts, not to mention the extra levels seemingly without end, I've come to one conclusion: I should never become a ninja. Sure, I should have known that before I even started playing Super House of Dead Ninjas, but it's nice to have confirmation.

I've died a lot. Countless times, really. Not enough to earn the achievement "Dedication," which one gets for dying a whooping 1000 times, but that achievement should tell you that this is a game about living for mere minutes. Thankfully, those minutes are filled with blood-soaked joy, certainly enough so that dusting one's self off and starting again isn't too great a chore.

Review: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus photo
Review: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus
by Chris Carter

After the extremely sour-tasting Ninja Gaiden III that was, in my mind, a disaster in nearly every way possible, it's a bit hard to trust Team Ninja without Tomonobu Itagaki at the helm.

Nonetheless, Team Ninja is still extremely content with profiting off of his former works with the release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Sigma 2 -- both in the form of remakes of the originals, and enhanced Vita ports of said remakes.

It's all a bit confusing, but at the end of the day, this maelstrom of porting somehow always manages to translate the pure quality of the originals into whatever version Tecmo Koei sees fit.

Sadly, Sigma 2 Plus is an exception.
