Jessica Nigri is the new voice of Super Sonico

Jessica Nigri first showed up on my radar after she cosplayed Curly Brace from Cave Story. Applying that level of detail and craftsmanship to a relatively obscure character is the sign of a cosplayer who isn't in it jus...

Review: Lollipop Chainsaw photo
Review: Lollipop Chainsaw
by Jim Sterling

Lollipop Chainsaw is the kind of game I dread having to review. Not because I necessarily dislike the game, and not because I foresee it becoming the center of yet another trite videogame review controversy. I dread these kinds of game because attempting to describe them is just so difficult. No words will ever truly do them justice, and no description can ever adequately substitute for a firsthand experience. 

Experiencing Lollipop Chainsaw firsthand, however, is something that I believe almost all of you ought to do. Few products are as dedicated to fun as this, bearing as it does the soul of games that many of us gladly tossed quarters into at the local bowling alley, so many years ago. Its similarities to other games are abundant, but as many games as it can be compared to, Lollipop Chainsaw defies a suitable description. It is, at once, like so many titles out there, and so unlike anything else. 

Now I have to try and review the damn thing.

Preview: Hands-on with Juliet Starling's decapitated head
by Tara Long

To clarify, it's not Juliet's decapitated head - it's her boyfriend Nick's, though it may as well be hers. If you can tie your lover's head to a chain and swing him around in circles repeatedly pummeling any and all zombies in your path, then it's probably safe to make that assumption.

In fact, I did just that during my first ever hands-on session with Lollipop Chainsaw this week, and I left feeling relieved (and mildly turned on, but that's another matter). The combat feels good without being overly repetitive, and the wide array of combo moves and colorful humor serve to add a decent amount of variety. Also, upskirts.

Oh god, the upskirts.

Meet the happy zombie-hunting family of Lollipop Chainsaw
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Every Lollipop Chainsaw trailer just keeps upping the crazy and it's no different here with our exclusive look at Juliet Starling's sisters. Big sister Cordelia Starling is an expert zombie hunter that wields a long range sniper rifle. Her turn-ons include inflicting bullet wounds and quesadillas.

Rosalind Starling is the youngest sister, an apprentice zombie hunter. Her biggest dream in life is to meet Justin Bieber ... and add his skull to her skull collection.

Lollipop Chainsaw will be out on June 12 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out our preview and all our other coverage of Suda 51's latest.

Here's an utterly ridiculous Lollipop Chainsaw trailer

Would you like to watch just under three minutes of complete silliness? Of course you do! This new trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw explains some of the ways in which Juliet Starling can decimate the undead horde, and while it starts quite sensibly, things get too barmy for words by the end.  I think we've praised this game enough lately, so just watch the video. It says everything it needs to.
