We've also included pictures of the crowd itself. Scary, right? more

I don't know how many times I can play Okami and come up with something to say without feeling like I'm repeating myself. I played it on the PS2, then again on the Wii, and today I played it on the PS3 in its latest inca... more
The idea of developers dedicating resources to mobile versions of franchises is something I’ve long been against, but have slowly been warming up to. So, they might as well make something good.

Why didn't I make the time? What a fool I was! more

While Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is due out on both Wii U and 3DS, these screenshots from Tokyo Game Show 2012 are for the latter version. In theory, it sounds nice to be able to play either one and pick up where you left off ... more
You might not think of Nintendo when you think Tekken, but there is a good reason for this: The series has never appeared on a Nintendo console before. While this may be a point of concern for fighting fans who plan to adopt ... more
We've just arrived on the first day of Tokyo Game Show 2012. I immediately lost self control and ran around the floor like a child in a toy store, snapping photos of anything that I liked or thought looked interesting. After ... more
