Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment being localized this summer

Will a bunch of people complain about how I just don't like anime if I say that Sword Art Online doesn't seem very good? Though at least it might make a passable game. Hard to mess up multiplayer monster fighters with bad wr...

Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day: A confusing mess of things I like photo
Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day: A confusing mess of things I like
by Steven Hansen

I finally got to play Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day last week. The lovechild of Suda 51, Tokyo Jungle director Yohei Kataoka, Silent Hill sound director Akira Yamaoka, and a bunch of other Japanese development talent, I've followed Ranko Tsukigime closely. 

So I was excited to finally get to play it. But I couldn't talk about it until today. Despite the fact that it decided to up and release in Europe last week. Even though it doesn't have a firm North American release date.

Whatever. I'm going to go see Short Peace in theatres this Thursday at least.

Review: Steins;Gate photo
Review: Steins;Gate
by Brittany Vincent

Time travel is infinitely more interesting once you leave the trappings of the TARDIS or any one of those familiar (some would say hackneyed) science fiction mainstays behind. Steins;Gate, the visual novel that inspired a 24-episode anime series, film, and several other spinoffs, has woven a masterful tale that explores the trope in a manner not unlike the popular deconstruction of magical girl series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

We're all familiar with the philosophy that altering even the smallest detail from a past event could alter the future drastically, but how much damage could a text message do? Could it destroy the hopes and dreams of everyone you love? How far could you go to make things right again?

One Piece Unlimited World Red coming to North America

I hope you didn't miss the first footage of One Piece Unlimited World Red earlier this year. This adventure RPG looks fantastic on any platform, but it's somehow even more impressive on the 3DS. I continue to be impressed by...

Attack on Titan swag coming to Phantasy Star Online 2 photo
Attack on Titan swag coming to Phantasy Star Online 2
by Chris Carter

Phantasy Star Online 2 has gotten some pretty crazy crossovers so far, but this one is probably the coolest. Attack on Titan will be invading PSO 2 in multiple ways, the most obvious of which is new outfit selections.

You'll be able to deck yourself out with Survey Corps outfits, as well as recruit stickers, weapons, Mikasa's hair and scarf, and the Three-Dimensional Maneuver Gear. The best addition though is the appearance of the Colossal Titan, who will "attack" (but not actually attack) the lobby and the background.

Jojo's Bizzare Adventure hits Europe on April 25

Jojo's Bizzare Adventure: All-Star Battle will enter the ring in Europe and Australasia on April 25, Namco Bandai has confirmed. Though the flagrant PlayStation 3 fighting game drew criticism in Japan over its gratuitous use of downloadable content, Namco says a pair of the digital characters (Yoshikage Kira and Shigekyo Yangu) will be on offer for "free" in the West. Gee, thanks guys.
