It was a good day when Australia's R18+ rating was passed for videogames, paving the way for adults to purchase games that might have previously either been edited for content or refused classification. Of all the games that ...

Review: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge photo
Review: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
by Jim Sterling

Ninja Gaiden 3 was remarkable in its lack of remarkability. Team Ninja's ability to drop the ball with its franchise so spectacularly was damn near impressive, even if the result was a monotonous and exhausting slog through one of the most soul-crushingly dull adventures released this year. 

With the Wii U on the horizon, Tecmo Koei has another chance to disappoint audiences with Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, an overhauled version that seeks to address complaints found in the original release, and provide a deeper, more nuanced experience. 

In essence, it aims to do what the proverbs say is impossible, and polish a turd.

Jimquisition: Monster Boobs And Plastic Children

Oh, Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided Team Ninja. Oh my dear, sweet, misguided, pervy, creepy, sleazy, weird, freaky, pervy, pervy, pervy Team Ninja. Your boobs are so bad. Your justification of said boobs are worse. Boobs. FYI, I fully admit today's episode is silly and quite possibly pointless. It was, however fun to make and I hope it is fun to watch.

Review: Dead or Alive 5
by Ian Bonds

Remember when Dead or Alive wasn't just a fan-service, minigame-ridden, volleyball-infused, T&A bounce fest? These characters were actual fighters, who regularly beat the crap out of each other in a tournament instead of lazing on a beach in a strange pseudo dating sim. When are they going to go back to the series' roots? When will Dead or Alive be a fighting game again?

Oh, wait. How about now?

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge: Getting bloody with Ayane photo
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge: Getting bloody with Ayane
by Dale North

I was able to give Ayane a go in upcoming Wii U game Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge tonight at a Tecmo Koei press event in Tokyo. Tecmo Koei said that they were only offering a playable demo at their event as what they had to show was too bloody and violent for the Tokyo Game Show floor. After playing the demo, I can easily believe that.

Ayane, the kunoichi, is is a new playable character in this Wii U version, and a bit of a change of pace from series protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. Team Ninja's Fumihiko Yasada, game director, said that the image of this beautiful girl fighting and getting bloody "symbolizes the experience and challenge you will feel in Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge."
