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... read

The (digital only) PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, the final game in the Dead or Alive 5 series, are missing some things: new stages, hairstyles, and fight costume customization.
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, supposedly the last one with a five in the title, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 on February 17, Koei Tecmo announced today.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z doesn't really offer up a deep combat system, but depending on what enemies you're fighting, it can get pretty intense -- especially on higher difficulty levels.
Here are a few quick tips to help you on your quest to destroy the undead horde. read
Shambling along I really didn't know what to expect from Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.
On one hand, it has the Ninja Gaiden name (which, admittedly, doesn't have much sway these days) and Keiji Inafune attached. But on the other, you have... read feature
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks disgusting; over-the-top; insane; and unabashedly offensive, yet I still can't wait to give it a go. The latest trailer above sheds some light on a few of the game's more interesting costumes, and let's just say the school girl outfit is not quite what one would expect.

Videogame ninjas are seriously the worst ninjas of all time. It's kind of hard to keep hidden in the shadows when there is a trail of blood and limbs running right up to your present location. Still pretty badass, though.
Here's a fat update on Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, coming this September for Xbox 360 and PS3.
