Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes
by Bill Zoeker

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts?

What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster sold a whole lot of copies in March

What can I do for you? I can't hear you. Square Enix hears you, and according to research analyst David Gibson, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster sold 208,000 copies during the month after its March 18 release. That's a lot of ...

There's a mo-cap dog in this Ground Zeroes making-of video

I adore watching VFX studio reels, so when I heard that Konami had released one for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I just couldn't help myself. I had to click. And here we are. At three minutes in length, the video is wo...

Cel Damage HD hits PS3, PS4, and PS Vita next week

I always wanted to play Cel Damage but never got around to it. Stupid younger self. It was a pleasant surprise, then, to find out we'd have a great excuse to play this cartoony vehicular combat game again on modern consoles b...

Tokyo Jungle and other greats are just $0.99 on North American PSN

If you're a North American gamer with a PlayStation 3 and you pass on buying one of the platform's best exclusives, Tokyo Jungle, we can't be friends. It and a bunch of other games -- some good, some less good -- are marked d...

500 GB PS3 and Spider-Man movie bundle is amazing for the sake of this pun

Were you sitting around thinking "Gosh, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 looks like a great game!" or "I really wish I had a PlayStation 3?" Well, you better be, because Jamie Foxx wasn't, and then Spidey had to flex on him, as ...

Fairy Fencer F and Disgaea 4 Vita dated for the west photo
Fairy Fencer F and Disgaea 4 Vita dated for the west
by Steven Hansen

Earlier today, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair got a release date for North American Vitas: September 2. I still need to play the first.

Anyway, more Japanese games have western release dates. Compile Heart's RPG Fairy Fencer F is coming on September 23. The loli characters come from the Hyperdimension Neptunia artist, but the games' gods were designed by Final Fantasy's Yoshitaka Amano. Plus, Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy) did the music.

Meanwhile, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited -- a touched up, additional content (plus old DLC) version of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten -- is coming on August 12. Good fit the Vita.

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou...

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.

Review: Trials Fusion photo
Review: Trials Fusion
by Jordan Devore

There's nothing quite like Trials and, after several games in the popular racing/platforming series, fans know what to expect from developer RedLynx: more of the same.

Yes, there will be a stupid, amazing theme song you'll hate yourself for letting get stuck in your head. There will also be moments of immense frustration made bearable by the eventual satisfaction of clearing that one particularly devious obstacle. And there will be bitter leaderboard rivalries as you fight to shave milliseconds off your best times.

Trials Fusion represents all of these things, and more -- occasionally to its detriment.
