Heihachi voice actor dies, possible suicide photo



Gouri Daisuke was a Japanese voice actor that seemed to specialize in fighting game voices. You've heard his work in games like Tekken (Mishima Heihachi), Soulcalibur (Edgemaster), Dead or Alive (Bass) and much more. His work also extended into the anime realm, where he was best known for Dragon Ball work.

He was found dead on the street in Nanako, Japan around 3 p.m. yesterday. He died of extensive loss of blood from his arm, and authorities are treating this as a suicide. A knife and a written will were found nearby.

We can honestly say that videogames won't be the same without him.

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.more

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more
