This is your first look at Phase 4 in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade

This sample combo video of Dead or Alive 5's Phase 4 shows what she's all about -- a shrouded assassin that dashes and vanishes with great ease. She doesn't disappear for long though. That's when the punishment begins again.

Disney Infinity, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Kodoku & Bikinis

Well, we got a new camera and I accidentally switched it onto "Sears Portrait Studio" mode, so sorry if I look a little bit like I'm in a porno from the late eighties. (What else is new.) Today, we've got some more details o...

Dead or Alive 5 is charging $25 for these new costumes

How does Tecmo Koei celebrate Halloween? Or really, any day of the week? With skimpy outfits! Skimpy outfits that they hope you'll pay $24.99 for. Yes, you read that right. 28 costumes for $25. The "special" pack released to...

Impressions: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

"If at first you don't succeed..." is an interesting business model, especially considering that Dead or Alive 5 wasn't really a "failure," per se. However, try, try again Team Ninja did, and we are now treated to a third version of this particular entry in the franchise. When it all boils down to it, does Ultimate really make that big of a difference?

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is going free-to-play

Though it is a perfectly functional and fun fighting game, Dead or Alive 5 didn't exactly set the fighting game scene ablaze. It sold well enough at least, but Team Ninja plans to breathe new life into the game by making Dead...

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate confirmed by Tecmo Koei

Remember that tease for something DOA related that featured Momoji? We were worried it would be for some silly character DLC. It turns out that it was a tease for a new game: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. This week's Famitsu reveals that Dead or Alive 5 Ulitmate is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. The only thing we know so far is pretty obvious by now: Momiji will be a playable character. Stay tuned.

Review: Dead or Alive 5 Plus photo
Review: Dead or Alive 5 Plus
by Ian Bonds

Last year, we returned to the sometimes strange but always beautiful Dead or Alive series; not in a leisurely beach title but in the series hallmark fighting genre. What we got was a deep, technical fighter that wasn't too technical and remained accessible to old and new fans alike.

This year, Tecmo Koei has seen fit to port the title over to Sony's newest handheld powerhouse, adding a few modes specific to the features of the system. What we got was largely unchanged from the original, but still packed with plenty of surprises.

New releases: LEGO City: Undercover gets built photo
New releases: LEGO City: Undercover gets built
by Fraser Brown

Underneath my gruff exterior beats the heart of a kid obsessed with LEGO. Even now, if I see some of those little bricks, I drop what I'm doing, and start building, ignoring whoever else is in the room. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that I'm pretty excited for LEGO City: Undercover, which drops this week along with a whole bunch of other games.

Set in an open world and story-based, it sounds like my cup of tea, especially since my favorite LEGO game has to be LEGO Batman 2. And come on, the hero is called Chaise McCain, the name I wish I was now blessed with.

Along with the tiny brick goodness, a slew of other games launch this week. Gears of War: Judgement is a thing, and will undoubtedly feature shooting and steroids; fighting giant monsters refuses to go out of style in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate; The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct appears, and still looks terrible; and the Wii U gets a Need for Speed game. All this a more falls from the skies this week.

What are you grabbing?
