[NSFW] Shake it, baby: New Onechanbara Z2: Chaos screens

Look, I'm not gonna mince words. The last Onechanbara title I played was absolutely horrible. For some reason I thought Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad for Xbox 360 was going to be this sexy amalgam of zombie-slaying goodne...

[NSFW] Onechanbara Z2: Chaos opener & alternate costumes

The problem with having a super "fan service" sort of game is that it can be hard to add more fan service. Like, there are plenty of upskirts in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos' opening cinematic, but when half of your characters are ...

A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game

Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is ...

Grass cutting CONFIRMED for Hyrule Warriors

Cutting grass is an important part of The Legend of Zelda, you know. So, we were happy to hear series producer Eiji Aonuma confirm during tonight's Nintendo Direct that this time-honored tradition would be making a glorious return in Hyrule Warriors. Who needs online multiplayer when you can chop up grass by your lonesome? Hyrule Warriors Direct [Nintendo]

Something's missing from Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo may have dropped the ball

Nintendo confirmed that Hyrule Warriors will not have an online co-op story mode. A lot of Zelda fans have been excited for this creative treatment of the series, but how much of a blow will this news be to the hype? If nothing else, this at least sucks a little.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii.

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos announced for PlayStation 4

Sony's PlayStation 4 isn't setting Japan ablaze just yet, like it is in much of the world. Part of that has to do with the dearth of software specifically targeted toward Japanese audiences. Enter Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, ...

Co-op hack 'n' slasher Sacred 3 coming August 5

Thanks for not calling it Sacr3d. This new Sacred game features online (four players) and offline (two players) co-op, which will probably be its main draw when it releases on August 5 for PS3, 360, PC. Plus, your homies' voices can drown out those badly acted, hokey combat barks from the trailer.

Hack 'N' Slash lets you take revenge on those darn block puzzles

Max recently sat down with Brandon Dillon of Double Fine, Programmer and Project Lead on Hack 'N' Slash. Brandon walked us through a demonstration of the game, which allows players to manipulate the actual code of the game with the protagonist's USB sword, and we all learn some lessons in critical thinking.

Croixleur Sigma is hard to pronounce, but fun to play

Doujin hack-and-slasher Croixleur debuted on western shores early last year, and it packed quite a punch. The game drew inspiration from the Devil May Cry series' Bloody Palace mode, pitting players against waves of...
