[Read on for a description of every Resident Evil game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2012.] Why Resident Evil? This year, Capcom is pushing out three entirely new Resident Evil games -- it's also t...


[Read on for a description of every Kingdom Hearts game ever released in the US, and my completion of all of them in 2012.] So I kind of realized that I was powering through both the Resident Evil and Tony Hawk...


Most games are depressed and miserable, but are they truly tragic? Of course not, otherwise there wouldn't be a video asking such a deliberately leading question. The trouble with most games today is that they rush to the sa...


I first heard of this news a few days ago, but I held off on posting it until I could get more concrete information. Thankfully, it looks like the internet rumblings have been correct, as La Pucelle: Tactics is going to be a ...


It's Final Fantasy's 25th anniversary this year, and you better believe Square Enix won't pass up the chance to sell things it's sold before in celebration. Still, when it's packaged this nicely, it's easy to see why folks'll...

Today has been officially recognized as the seven-year anniversary of Killer7, one of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful videogames ever created. Seven years ago today, the game launched in Japan. It actually came to North ...


This is what I've always wanted Sony to do. There are tons of great PS2 games out there that are sitting and rotting. Why not re-release them digitally for the PS3?  They're doing exactly that in Japan, starting July 25....


Sources have indicated to GamesIndustry International that Sony has made a deal with Gaikai to offer first- and third-party PlayStation and PS2 games on PS3 via streaming. Presumably, we'll hear the official details about thi...


Clock Tower 3 wasn't exactly the greatest game in the world, but it did one thing perfectly, one thing that has kept it stuck in my mind for years -- cutscenes. To many, the art of the cutscene is worth more sneering than pr...


Persona 3 is still one of my favorite games of all-time. I've played it so many times now that it's bordering on crazy, but I may give it another go on my PS3 as it's being re-released as a PlayStation 2 Classic tomorrow on ...


Today is "Throwback Thurday" on Mash Tactics, and King Foom is cutting it close. Zone of the Enders is slated for the HD treatment this year, but until that actually happens, it still counts as a throwback, dammit! Konami's c...


Primal is one of those games that not too many people remember, but those that do remember it very fondly indeed. It's not even a very good game, but its engaging story and interesting concepts turned what could have been a f...


It's another odd edition of 'WTF Wednesdays' on Mash Tactics. King Foom is going to be playing Under the Skin on PlayStation 2. This Capcom gem has the player take the role of a toddler alien, born for mischief, causing havoc...


Ah, Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga. Produced back in the pre-Persona craze days, when Atlus USA could only afford to do one print run of any given series (a rep they still hold today, though t...


This is the third year in a row that 2K Sports is holding its Perfect Game Challenge for its MLB 2K series. They're changing the format this time, but previously, the first person to throw a verified perfect game would win $1...


Although a number of PlayStation 2 classics have wandered onto the PlayStation Network lately, Sony has put paid to any hope that you'll be able to play them on the go. PS2 games will be restricted to the PS3, with no planned...


It's going to be a 'WTF Wednesday' of ridiculous proportions today on Mash Tactics. King Foom is flinging himself face-first into Treasure's oddball PlayStation 2 title Stretch Panic. I could go into a full description of the...


Today is a true 'WTF Wednesday' for Mash Tactics. King Foom will be playing the bizarre classic Mister Mosquito for PlayStation 2. This unconventional game puts the player in the role of the titular blood-sucker trying to sur...

The original Killzone is scheduled to infiltrate the PlayStation Network on January 24, in an announcement that came out of nowhere. It will be a straight port, not a revamped HD version, and it'll cost you $9.99.  Killz...


So, I don't exactly follow basketball to any degree, but I remember hearing about the whole lockout controversy that prevented the NBA from starting last fall. Apparently the NBA has finally come to an agreement though, beca...


It was Jak & Daxter's tenth anniversary on December 4, and Sony decided to commemorate it by sending me a Precursor Orb today. This is a limited edition replica of the artifact, found in the Jak & Daxter series, ...


We can't get enough of last generation's games, it seems. Up next to receive a high-def collection is the beloved Jak and Daxter series. Following prior rumors about such a retail package, and Siliconera's finding of a USK ra...


It's Halloween, the day that St. Spooky was born for our sins. On this haunted occasion, I discuss what truly makes a horror game scary and decide that the worse a game looks, the better it is at frightening you. With l...


It's the weekend before Halloween, and my mind turns to thoughts of the spooky. After recently re-watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, I suddenly remembered its sequel, Oogie's Revenge. Never heard of the sequel? Well, it...


[It Came from Japan! is a series where I seek out and review the weirdest, most original and enjoyable titles that never left the Land of the Rising Sun.] Along with churros and KFC, dungeon crawlers are one of those r...


Pardon my all caps excitement, but I am a huge fan of the three main Jak and Daxter games on the PlayStation 2, and if Naughty Dog's Game Director Justin Richmond is to be believed, an HD compilation of the successful PS2 tri...


The PlayStation 2 classic strategy RPG GrimGrimoire is now available in the...PlayStation 2 Classic section of the PlayStation Network -- where else? Now this is speaking my language. We're talkin' a delicious 2D strateg...

I've played videogames for the vast majority of my life, to the point where I've been fortunate enough to make it part of my life. I feel I could confidently challenge anybody to rival my passion for the medium, my respect fo...


Someone must have fed the devs at Neko Entertainment after midnight and things went crazy, because a Gremlins game the studio was working on never saw the light of day. Yes, I'm talking about a game based off the 80s Gr...


[As originally posted on Japanator] A new Persona 4: The Animation trailer featuring Rise and Kanji wearing next-to-nothing? I'd say that's exciting enough, since the last trailer was three months ago. But a t...

Today marks the 11th anniversary of Deus Ex, the greatest game of all time and a product of the '90s that blew away PC gamers and future developers when it was released. While its non-linearity, immersive world, and narrative...
