These days it's almost standard practice for a Japanese publisher to have all its new game revelations leaked by crummy scans of Glorious Nippon's favorite gaming rag Famitsu.

Such was the case with Armored Core 5, whose crummy Famitsu scans spoiled From Software's countdown just yesterday. Today's set of scans are thankfully not crummy, and their not-crummy-ness has revealed how From Software intends to get everyone hotted up for the new, slightly smaller mecha: by putting six burning chainsaws on them. Works for me!

Indeed, what I originally thought were melting gun barrels (that's how crummy the scans were) are actually sextuple electric burning energy chainsaws. Better still, the shots showing the new mecha chopping up helicopters and the like with said chainsaws hint that the weapons themselves are back-mounted, freeing up the arms to dual-wield giant guns or more chainsaws or other crazy things.

Plus, a new promo was announced that will surely set fire to the boosters of (Japanese) Armored Core enthusiasts. Preorders Last Raven Portable - a PSP port of the PS2's Armored Core: Last Raven - would come with a campaign code that can be redeemed for special Armored Core 5 DLC. In addition to that, Last Raven Portable preorders would include a 60-page artbook that contained the first images and design work for Armored Core 5. Perhaps those pictures include sexy sextuple chainsaws? I hope.

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me....more

Namco's Godzilla confirmed for PS3, PS4 in the West

Each new trailer for Bandai Namco's Godzilla PS3 (and now PS4) game has looked better than the last but I didn't want to get my hopes up knowing it was only confirmed for release in Japan. I mean, I did anyway, but everything...more

Waifu bartending: VA-11 HALL-A seems like the best dive this side of Catherine

I love Catherine. Part of the reason is its block puzzles. Part of the reason is its small scale, with most playable segments taking place in the homey bar Stray Sheep. VA-11 HALL-A--or Valhalla--is that same sort of ba...more
