Dead or Alive 5 trailer full of jiggle physics

It would appear that Dead or Alive 5 is coming along nicely. I mean, Team Ninja did get the most important feature of any DoA game in there already. You know, the jiggle physics. Ayane and Hitomi are here to show off the ful...

I wish I had made Katawa Crash

This post is already way too much about me and way too little about the story, so how about we take that narcissism as far as we can and see what happens? I'm sad. I can't get keyboard-controlled Flash games to wor...

Another chance to get DoA Dimensions' SpotPass outfits photo
Another chance to get DoA Dimensions' SpotPass outfits
by Jordan Devore

Grand news for everyone who recently picked up a 3DS: Tecmo Koei is going to cycle through the daily SpotPass outfits for Dead or Alive Dimensions again -- all 34 of them.

Each morning at 10:00am, there will be a new costume to download for free. The types of costumes and order in which they are released will be the same as before. This redistribution period is going to take place from August 15 through September 17, and again on September 19 through October 22.

Sure, cool. Whatever. I suppose I don't really have any right to judge as someone who tinkered with my 3DS' system clock in order to get the Pokemon for the Pokedex app. So worth it.

Ninja Gaiden III details emerge, suggest 'darker' Ryu

The 'latest' Playstation: The Official Magazine has project lead Yosuke Hayashi spilling some details on Ninja Gaiden III -- the first new Ninja Gaiden sans Itagaki. Supposedly, the focus will be on Ryu Hayabusa as a "dark Ja...

Moved to FarmVille: Former Tecmo Koei boss at Zynga Japan

Wow, what a move. First you're at the house of boobs, ninjas and warriors, and then you move to a place where crops and farmer hats are the most popular things.  I'm sure former Tecmo Koei boss Kenji Matsubara got over t...

Team Ninja takes a mild crap on Street Fighter IV 3D

It's been a while since I've seen an honest to goodness fighting game rivalry. There was the faux trash talk between the Tekken 6 and Street Fighter IV devs from late last year, but that was all just to promote Street Fighter...

Hands-on Dead or Alive Dimensions (3DS) photo
Hands-on Dead or Alive Dimensions (3DS)
by Nick Chester

Two fighting games coming to a Nintendo handheld? This is madness! Tecmo’s fighter Dead or Alive: Dimensions will join Capcom’s Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition on the Nintendo 3DS this year.

The game marks Team Ninja’s second foray into the world of Nintendo portables, the first being 2008’s Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. Based on my hands-on time with the fighter, it certainly seems to be nailing that trademark Team Ninja look, feel, and… bounce.

Take a look at Dead or Alive Dimensions' Metroid stage

And that, my dear readers, is the sound of 3DS purchasers -- more than just those already into Team Ninja's brand of fighting games -- collectively starting to care about Dead or Alive Dimensions. Such a thing shouldn't be a...

Dead or Alive Dimensions trailer is hard to understand

I wish I could tell you what's going on in this Dead or Alive Dimensions trailer. The video seems to detail the game's roster, as well as some of its 3DS specific features, but my limited Japanese keeps me from telling you m...

Rumor: Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age II, DOA 5 at E3?

So, GameSpot has got itself a swanky interactive map of E3's show floor. On this map, you can click on the various companies that'll be in attendance, and a list of their "featured games" will pop up. See where this is going ...

Tecmo Koei's E3 line-up is short but sweet

The Japanese unified power of Tecmo and Koei is only bringing four games to E3 this year. No portable stuff. No Wii stuff. Just serious games. I'm all for the First of the North Star game. Ken's Revenge, coming to the Xbox 36...

Quantum Theory isn't a Gears clone, really

If you've seen Quantum Theory you know it looks a lot like Gears of War. It's a third-person shooter with a cover system, big burly men and heavy armor. But if you've played Quantum Theory then you know that they're at least ...
