This Skies of Arcadia statue is zomg worthy

As a collector, I often make up my own rules in regards to where to stop. I usually draw the line at extra merchandise from games outside of those I absolutely adore -- and boy do I adore Skies of Arcadia. This new 17-inch Vy...

Yakuza Ishin came to PS3 & PS4 to do right by fans, just not western ones

Yakuza Ishin, released in concert with the PS4 in Japan as the best selling (not-bundled) software, is probably never releasing outside of Japan. SEGA sidestepped localizing Yakuza 5 to put all its efforts towards developing ...

3D Outrun has a clear release date in Japan

PSA: Sonic CD is free for Android for 7 more hours
by Steven Hansen
