Ragnarok Odyssey Ace is a nice step up from the original

Ragnarok Odyssey's follow-up has an Ace up its sleeve, packed with all new content -- effectively rendering it an expansion. In addition to yet another Vita version the game is also dropping on the PlayStation 3, wh...

Arkham Knight, Goat Simulator, Shaq-Fu 2 & The Last of Us: The Movie photo
Arkham Knight, Goat Simulator, Shaq-Fu 2 & The Last of Us: The Movie
by Max Scoville

Sweet Christmas do we have some great news about video games today!

Let’s see… My previews for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes went up, a new Batman game was announced by Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Knight, Watch Dogs finally has a release date, and there’s a new Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer. On a less fun note, Mad Catz announced a partnership with Ouya, and on a downright depressing note, Disney Interactive has laid off 700 employees.

However, there’s a bunch of crazy weird news: Shaq-Fu is (hopefully) getting a sequel, Goat Simulator is going to be an actual game, and Akiba’s Trip 2, a Japanese game about punching vampires till their clothes come off, will actually be released in the west. Finally, a couple pieces of movie news: there’s feature film in the works based on The Last of Us, which seems sort of redundant to me, but that new Transformers movie involves Optimus Prime living in Mark Wahlberg’s barn, which is even more ridiculous than robot dinosaurs.

The sweltering summer heat is just around the corner and with it comes Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed, an action role-player with a surprisingly apt title. Tokyo's famous electronics district, Akihabara, has been overru...

PSA: Europe, you can play Ys: Memories of Celceta now

Ys: Memories of Celceta helped cap a strong fall for the Vita that no one paid attention to. Maybe the fragile Europeans will appreciate its belated-but-not-Atlus-belated release in their home continent.  Go play more fun Vita games, one and all.

Dekamari Senran Kagura is a rhythm cooking battle game

Exclusive: Suda 51's top 7 Killer is Dead moments
by Jonathan Holmes

Killer is Dead was a day one purchase for me, though from what I hear from my peers, a lot of consumers didn't have the confidence to pick it up upon initial release. With the gift giving holidays just around the corner, and all of your "must-have" games already safely in your possession, maybe this is just the kind of game you'd like to own but not pay for. 

Tempted to send your mom out to the local strip mall with instructions to ask the man at the counter to sell her one shiny new copy of Killer is Dead to stuff in your stocking? Check out Suda 51's spoiler-packed favorite moments and see if you're not convinced, and check out our contest for a signed copy of the game while you're at it.

Review: Ys: Memories of Celceta photo
Review: Ys: Memories of Celceta
by Wesley Ruscher

It’s strange to think that Ys: Memories of Celceta is actually the fourth iteration of Ys IV. Even weirder, it’s the first time the game has been developed by Nihon Falcom, who was the developer of pretty much every other game in the series. Weirder yet is that this is the first time the game is finally gracing the western world in an official capacity.

As with Falcom’s excellent Ys: The Oath in Felghana that released on PSP in 2010, Memories of Celceta is more than just an upgraded port of an over decade-old Super Nintendo game. Instead, it’s a complete artistic re-envisioning done so to create a more cohesive universe for the franchise.

Not to mention it’s a damn fine reason to dust off your Vita.
