Here's an 18-minute Persona 4 the Golden a cappella cover

I've been following YouTube user theTMKsound for awhile now as the Japanese cover musician behind the channel is a) insanely talented, and b) a fan of videogame music. His previous works inspired me to create my own Persona ...

Tres bien! Atlus announces Persona Q 3DS bundle

Stupei gets slapped in his Persona Q video

While we were beary excited to bring you Teddie and Aigis' Persona Q trailers last week, we totally whiffed on Junpei and Yukari. We've got to show Persona 3 some love. I'm more excited for both of their entrances into Persona 4 Arena, but seeing Junpei get slapped and Yukari's cute little cherub bow (below) is nice.

Beary cool: Teddie & Aigis get their Persona Q trailers

Is Aigis not doing the stilted robotic voice because of where Persona Q falls in the timeline, or did the Japanese voice actor never do it? Because that was a bothersome element to Aigis' character for me. Not as annoying as...

Persona Q 'like playing two whole RPGs altogether'

Tres bien! Mitsuru leads this new Persona Q trailer

I'm still not convinced I like the 3DS chibi Persona 3 and Persona 4 spin-off, Persona Q. Giving me more Mitsuru-senpai is a good way to convince me, though. It seems like all the characters will be getting videos as Atlus's YouTube drowns us in Persona Q videos. I could think of worse things to drown in. Like fire. Or pizza rolls. Or syrup. Most things, really.

EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype photo
EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype
by Wesley Ruscher

Another year, another Evolution Championship Series under wraps. This year's premiere fighting game tournament was by far the biggest to date boasting over 3,000 participants from over 30 countries, stretching across nine of the most elite games in the genre. 

Three days of non-stop action, that began with some of the most intense semi-final matches to grace the first day of the tournament ever. There were multiple bouts, especially in Super Street Fighter IV Arcade and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that could have easily been grand final championship fights. It was definitely a rollercoaster ride of emotion from start to finish. 

Day three culminated in another justifiably crazy day full of upsets and memorable moments. The amount of heart on display was inspiring. Reigning champs were dethroned and new kings of the stick were crowned. 

Here are the winners and most hype moments of EVO 2013.
