Year Walk

03-06-2014

Just as winter starts to fade and spring begins to arrive, here comes Year Walk's appearance on Steam to bring a little chill into our lives. Released last year on iOS to a lot of acclaim, the game tells the story of a man w...

Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm launches in Japanese arcades Thursday, Taito has announced. Meanwhile, the doujin fighting game's long-awaited PC release still remains a work in progress. "The timing of the NESiCAxLive release...


 

Yatagarasu

08-23-2012

Nicalis, the folks who helped make the most recent versions of Cave Story and VVVVVV a possibility, are collaborating with Circle Edge to put a fighting game out on the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe. Originally relea...


 

Yarn Yoshi

01-23-2013

A new game from the developers of the sublime Kirby's Epic Yarn is coming to Wii U, but this time it's not Kirby that's made of string -- it's Yoshi.  The unnamed game -- which I'm calling Yoshi's Epic Yarn of course -- ...


 

Yakuza: Ishin

06-30-2014

Hope you're ready for another dose of Yakuza (that you can't have.) A recent interview with producer Masayoshi Yokoyama and series supervisor Toshihiro Nagoshi has revealed that the latest entry in the Yakuza series is well u...

Yakuza: Dead Souls

03-15-2012

Sega's Yakuza: Dead Souls hit store shelves just two days ago, so while it's unlikely that most people out there have completed the game, I suppose it's possible. If you want a preview (not really a spoiler) of what to expect...


 

Yakuza Zero

03-18-2015

Sega's open-world beat-'em-up Yakuza 0 was the top-selling game in Japan last week, debuting with a combined 236,329 physical sales across both PS3 and PS4, according to Media Create. While the lion's share of purchases came ...


 

Yakuza Restoration

04-25-2014

Yakuza Ishin, released in concert with the PS4 in Japan as the best selling (not-bundled) software, is probably never releasing outside of Japan. SEGA sidestepped localizing Yakuza 5 to put all its efforts towards developing ...


 

Yakuza of the End

06-21-2011

That I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free. And I wont forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. And I gladly stand up, next to you and defend her still today. ‘ Cause there...


 

Yakuza Ishin

02-21-2014

The Yakuza series is basically on life support (or dead) in the west, but it's still going strong in Japan. Set to coincide with the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan tomorrow, Yakuza Ishin has a brand new trailer to show off some of the game's more emotional moments. Yakuza can basically do no wrong for me, so I'm definitely going to import this at some point in the future.


 

Yakuza 5

12-06-2014

Somebody pinch me! Yakuza 5 is coming to PlayStation 3 in North America next year, Sony announced today at the PlayStation Experience. This is definitely better late than never! It sounds like Sony had a big hand in mak...


 

Yakuza 4

02-26-2013

The Yakuza series is full of oddball missions but the suicide negotiator in Yakuza 4 takes the cake for being the most obscene. The protagonist is asked to talk a suicide jumper down from a highrise, only to end up in a fist...


 

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Edition

09-21-2012

I took a few minutes today at Tokyo Game Show to have a peek at how the HD re-release of the first two installments in the Yakuza series are shaping up. It's looking good, folks. Crisp and sexy, I think players will...


 

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD

08-15-2013

The Wii U port sales woes continue with Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, as the game reportedly shipped less than 2000 copies in its first week in Japan. Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi stated in the past that the release is an "experi...

Yakiniku Bugyou

07-19-2011

You like yakiniku, don't you? Hell, it's not worth asking, as I'm convinced that everybody likes yakiniku. Even vegetarians. Yes. I'm telling you now that even if you haven't tried this Japanese/Korean barbecued meat on a woo...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

03-18-2014

I really didn't know what to expect from Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. On one hand, it has the Ninja Gaiden name (which, admittedly, doesn't have much sway these days) and Keiji Inafune attached. But on the other, you have...


 

Y2K

02-26-2015

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.

Xotic

09-20-2011

First-person shooters are a dime a dozen, but recently this genre has seen an influx of score-oriented types of gameplay. From Bulletstorm to Bodycount, it is no longer enough to just give the player some guns, a few levels, ...


 

XIII

10-27-2011

BOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Over a week ago, it was revealed that a new XIII game was in the works for iOS and PC. This week, our hopes and dreams have been crushed with the reveal of XIII: Lost Identity. Turns out it's n...

Xeodrifter

02-24-2015

Xeodrifter is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Vita this spring, Renegade Kid announced today. The minimalist "Metroidvania" launched on 3DS and PC late last year, earning high marks from our own Jonathan Holmes, who said it might be the Mutant Mudds developer's "best game yet." The studio also just put out a special edition on Steam, which features a dev diary and soundtrack. Xeodrifter [Steam]


 

Xenonauts

10-10-2011

It seems as though Paypal is unintentionally throwing a wrench in the works of another independent game developer. Goldhawk Interactive, the developers of the X-Com inspired Xenonauts, have just been locked out from thei...


 

Xenoblade Chronicles X

04-10-2015

There was a Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning focused on Xenoblade Chronicles X. Thanks to some helpful translation, we know a few more details about the Dolls and mechs and cooperative play. One cool-sounding note is th...

Xenoblade Chronicles

10-18-2013

Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...


 

Xenoblade

12-02-2011

Nintendo of America put the icing on today's news cake by releasing a trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles. The video confirms that the rather nice British voice cast is remaining, which is hardly surprising considering the fact...
