J-Stars Victory Vs+ is a shallow masher, but it's fanservice done right

It doesn't take an otaku to see the appeal of J-Stars Victory Vs+. It features a host of famous anime characters, from Kenshin to Goku to Naruto. It's like the Marvel vs. Capcom of Shōnen Jump properties, a mag...

As the first current-gen Naruto, Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a huge visual leap photo
As the first current-gen Naruto, Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a huge visual leap
by Chris Carter

There are more Naruto games than one sane person can possibly handle. Although Bandai Namco Entertainment owns the license, a number of different developers have worked with the gaming side, most notably CyberConnect2, who has been working on the Ultimate Ninja subseries from the very beginning.

I had some hands-on time with Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 at Namco Bandai's recent Global Gamers Day event, and although it still has a lot of the same repetition issues as its predecessors, it looks pretty damn slick so far.

Ghost in the Shell first-person shooter coming west in 2015 photo
Ghost in the Shell first-person shooter coming west in 2015
by Steven Hansen

You remember this Team Fortress 2 take on Ghost in the Shell coming to Japan and Korea? Well, Nexon America noted on Twitter that Ghost in the Shell Online is indeed coming to the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Australia. And this year, too.

I am no more in love with the concept than I was last year, but I have rewatched the original film since then to find that I still love it (enough to make it my own Twitter avatar). Given that this is free-to-play I might give it a look, but it will probably just make me sad or bored in comparison to just watching Ghost in the Shell again.

Watch Mega Man Maverick Hunter X's 'The Day of Sigma' OVA in HD

Back in 2005, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X hit the PSP with a pretty awesome OVA titled "The Day of Sigma." The main problem is that it was previously only available on the UMD itself, with a 480x272 level of video qualit...

Is Atlus teasing an Attack on Titan localization?

Earlier today, the Twitter account for Atlus USA posted a very strange Vine. The short clip features a man destroying tiny ketchup packet people, splatting red on walls and eating a hotdog. We were initially confused, what on...

Steins;Gate 0 announced from the same team as the first game

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary photo
Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary
by Josh Tolentino

No, that isn't an encoding error up there in the headline: "htoL#NiQ" is indeed this PS Vita game's title, and is essentially a very stylish way to type "The Firefly Diary" in Japanese.

Whatever personal peculiarities led the team at Nippon Ichi to title their new game this way seem to extend to the game's design as well. htoL#NiQ marches to its own rhythm, and ends up being two things at once: a fascinating work of minimalism, and a needlessly difficult ordeal best enjoyed only by the most masochistic of flagellants.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 makes Gekko Moriah playable

Bandai Namco is showing off more One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 footage, and hot damn does it look great. In addition to some new zones and characters, you'll also see the newly playable Gekko Moriah in action. He's...really weird. It's due in March on the PS3, PS4, and Vita in Japan, with a summer release in the US, and a "TBA 2015" date for Europe.

My interview with the voice of Vegeta didn't go so well photo
My interview with the voice of Vegeta didn't go so well
by Bill Zoeker

I was surprised to find myself given the opportunity to interview Christopher Sabat; the founder of voice over studio, Okratron500, and the voice actor for Vegeta, and many other Dragon Ball characters.

I've been a huge Dragon Ball fan for years, if you couldn't tell from the Just Saiyan series we once did, so this was very exciting for me. Perhaps my nerves got to me, or perhaps I'm just rusty from not having done any interviews for a while, but this did not go well. I didn't get the impression that Chris liked me very much.

If you want actual information on Dragon Ball Xenoverse, just click here.

[Disclosure: This interview took place at a Bandai Namco event held at a venue in San Francisco that I forgot the name of. It was catered by a food truck, but I wasn't very hungry. They started serving free alcoholic cocktails at 4:30. Chris was great sport with this video. I didn't actually stalk him.]
