Yumi's Odd Odyssey

03-28-2014

There's an important rule in the entertainment industry: Know your audience. For the PS Vita version of Yumi's Odd Odyssey set to arrive in April in Japan, it appears this philosophy is being followed pretty closely. See if you can spot what the difference might be between the Nintendo 3DS version and the "ahem" mature Vita version. It might take you a while, so be patient. [Via Twitter]

Ys: Memories of Celceta

12-11-2013

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 eve...

Ys Origin

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...
