Namco Bandai, wait that's not rightBandai Namco has announced tha... -- actually, the name change doesn't take affect until April so I suppose Namco Bandai is still correct. Actually, maybe it's not becau... -- I CAN'T DEAL WITH THIS! Alright, we're doing this my way.

Bamco Nandai has announced that SoulCalibur: Lost Swords, the company's upcoming free-to-play title, will be launching exclusively on the PlayStation 3 sometime this spring. I mean, it's not very specific but it's a bit more than the "2014" launch date they had given before, so they're getting there.

Camno Danbai's Lost Swords has already drawn criticism from fans of the franchise for being a single-player only title that's expected to implement a sort of "play-time token" system where players pay real money in order to play a certain amount of matches in the game (similar to that of Tekken: Revolution).

What's everyone thinking of this game so far?

Review: Warframe

Warframe has just released on the Xbox One, and it's undergone some changes since it launched -- mostly good changes, meant to add more content to the game in the form of items and missions. It still fails in all of the same areas however, mostly its inability to craft an interesting world, and the free-to-play scheme that encourages far too much grinding.more
