[NSFW] Beard View: Onechanbara Z2: Chaos

Onechanbara holds a special place in my heart (you know, that thing that throbs and fills with blood). The series has only had two games released stateside, one for the Wii and its prequel for the Xbox 360 a month beforehand...

Senran Kagura 2 bounces westward this summer

Once upon a time, XSEED seemed pretty cagey about publishing the Senran Kagura games. Nowadays the plucky localization studio can't seem to bring the danged things over fast enough. Yes, you probably read the headline where ...

Review: Brandish: The Dark Revenant photo
Review: Brandish: The Dark Revenant
by Kyle MacGregor

Antiques possess a magnetic quality, an appeal to our imaginations, a false nostalgia for a time most of us are too young to remember. There's a comforting allure to these relics. They offer a window into the past, a living history. It's a connection, however tenuous, to where we came from, a place to which we've never visited or cannot return. 

Brandish: The Dark Revenant is an antique, something of a refurbished one. Falcom's classic role-playing game began its life as a PC release in 1991. It would later come to SNES, and was then remade in 2009 for PlayStation Portable, albeit only for Japan. Now, more than a half-decade later, a localization has finally arrived on western shores. Better late than never.

Rune Factory 4 finally arrives in Europe next week

Rune Factory 4's journey to Europe has been a long and winding road. At one point, when developer Neverland went bankrupt and closed its doors, it looked like the role-playing game might never release in PAL territories. Luck...
