Man the Valkyria Chronicles Remaster is beautiful

If you somehow missed out on the amazing Valkyria Chronicles in the PS3 era (maybe you weren't born yet), and missed out on the great PC port recently that's been sold for dirt cheap every other week, you'll get your chance soon enoug...

Valkyria Chronicles Remaster looks great in its debut trailer

Sega released the debut trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Remaster, set to arrive on PS4 in Japan on February 10. The original was already gorgeous on PS3, so it's no wonder that it will look even better on PS4. Valkyria Chronicles Remaster w...

Yakuza: Kiwami continues to look great

Every time I see footage for Yakuza: Kiwami, I just want to replay the first game again. It's a shame that we never got the PS3 or Wii U HD remakes, but I'd settle for a worldwide release of this one, as it seems like the best ve...

Project X Zone 2 pre-order bonuses include a challenge stage

Pre-order bonuses, as a rule, are pretty scummy. I get that publishers really need that cash now, but providing in-game incentives, some of which are not sold later (or, even crazier, just included in the game -- weird, I know), is not...

What is going on with this Dragon's Crown figure?

I'm almost at a loss for words other than to say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. The last Dragon's Crown Amazon figure (that I've seen, anyway) was over the top in ways you would expect given the source material, but that de...
