Atlus doesn't shrug
May 20
I've heard Atlus shrugs, but not this time. I was pretty vocal in my disappointment with Atlus' choice to have a ladies pack of swimsuit DLC free with pre-order of Persona 4: Dancing All Night (and purchasable down the line).... read

Atlus shows off Persona 4: Dancing All Night swimsuit gameplay


Still disappointed, Atlus
May 15
I already wrote about why I was disappointed in Atlus over this swimsuit DLC for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but I know not everyone shares my overbearing principles* and would like to see the swimsuit trailer, so I will do my civic duty and post it here, on-line. *my overbearing principles involve seeing Kanji in a speedo.

Not a Hero review photo
I can be your hero, baby
Roll7 has received much adulation distilling skateboarding into pixel-based 2D fun with OlliOlli so it's not surprising that the team has been able to do the same with cover-based shooting. But OlliOlli's pixels belie the pol... read feature

Learn why the Color Guardians final boss is so poorly designed

Color me bad
I put a lot of value in elegance. Solving a math problem in an unconventional way using two steps is inherently cooler than doing it in twenty steps. A single shot from a sniper rifle taking down a faraway target is more impr... read feature
