That's a damn fine PlayStation Vita

I like this PlayStation Vita design even more than that metal slime PlayStation 4. They share a similar theme, but it's the little touches that matter -- the custom d-pad art, the liquid metal slime accessory for the headphone jack, the sli...

Stop Dragon Quest Heroes from talking out of your controller

Several hours into Dragon Quest Heroes, yeah, I should disable the sound emanating from my controller. Characters like to talk, a lot, and snippets of dialog regularly come through the DualShock 4's speakers. It didn't bother me much at fir...

Take a look at the heroes and enemies of Dragon Quest Heroes

One of the first games I ever played was Dragon Quest on the NES, known as Dragon Warrior in the west. It was the game that gave me the RPG knowledge I have today, and I still have vivid memories of the colorful and bright art dir...
