Axiom Verge impressions
Axiom Verge follows the exploits of a scientist who, after apparently killing himself in a lab accident, awakens on a mysterious world full of secrets to uncover and labyrinthine environments to explore. It's essentially...   read

I am Setsuna preview
As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obviou...   read

YIIK
Weirdness is a taut rope to walk -- too little and it distracts, too much and it's overpowering. It has to be just the right amount, mixed with enough sincerity to keep the whole affair from feeling twee or, even worse, smug....   read

One of SNK's best fighting games is coming to PS4, Vita

SNK used to be a powerhouse back in the day. The very first fighting game I can recall playing isn't Street Fighter, but King of Fighters at a Fun Factory -- I picked Andy Bogard and didn't really like him, eventually gravitating ...

There's a big Lego game sale on PlayStation Network

My strategy for Lego titles has been to hold off as best I can until they inevitably hit super-low prices. It usually doesn't take long, and if I get bored with the title or otherwise regret the purchase, that's fine -- I'm not out much mon...

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness has a nice little collector's edition

NIS America has locked down a September 13, 2016 release for Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, so you better turn that frown upside down like your life depends on it. The visual novel game is arriving in Europe ...

Severed is launching on PS Vita April 26

In the two years since we first got eyes on DrinkBox Studios' latest project Severed, it has kept a fairly low profile. Originally scheduled to release last summer, it got pushed back to 2016, and we haven't heard much about it in the meant...

Toukiden 2 is looking good in its first gameplay trailer

Toukiden's follow-up was announced last year at the Tokyo Game Show and since we've seen nothing but screenshots. Nice screenshots, mind. But writing about new screenshots is so 2008 or, perhaps, 2000-and-late. The point is that it's 2016 ...
