Final Fantasy XIII is steeling itself for launch in Japan, ready to release on December 17. In preparation for the game's imminent arrival, Tokyo's wacky Akihabara is going absolutely mental with Final Fantasy mayhem, plastering imagery from the new game all over the bloody place.

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.more
