Zombies make out in this Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z video

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks disgusting; over-the-top; insane; and unabashedly offensive, yet I still can't wait to give it a go. The latest trailer above sheds some light on a few of the game's more interesting costumes, and let's just say the school girl outfit is not quite what one would expect. Will you be picking up Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z when it drops this March?

You better believe I've had my eyeballs on the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter like a vulture. I wanted to spread the news as soon as the console port goal was finally cleared.

That's right! Mere minutes ago, the donation amount crossed the $2,200,000 threshold, ensuring that comcept and Inti Creates will put Mighty No. 9 on PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. I always knew this stretch goal would be met, but I didn't think it would happen with a full two weeks left to go before the Kickstarter closes. I don't know if it'll be able to hit the $3,300,000 mark required for the PS4 and Xbox One ports, but never count out the massive influx of funds that typically pour in the last couple of days of a crowdfunding campaign.

By the way, have you guys seen Mighty No. 3's design yet? Isn't she just the most adorable Japanese thunder god?

Keiji Inafune dropped mad Mega Man secrets on me photo

Keiji Inafune, are you Kamen Rider?

"As a child, of course, I watched lots of Kamen Rider, so I love that show, but I unfortunately cannot definitively say that I have experience being the masked rider. But I may at one time or another have worn a mask and a suit that was breakaway and gone into my nude form!"

That is an actual question I got to ask the outspoken former Capcom producer during an interview on Sunday, September 1, at the Grand Hyatt hotel smack in the middle of PAX Prime weekend. I never thought I would score the privilege of meeting my game industry hero in person, much less twice in just under three months. For all my whining and moaning, I really am a fortunate guy.

I maintained my composure long enough to make it through our half-hour session, during which I probed Inafune's brain about the recently announced Mighty No. 9 and other gaming happenings. Of course, I also came armed with a few Mega Man queries, the answers to which are nothing short of mind-blowing. Where does the nickname "Inafking" come from? Why does Mega Man's helmet have an exclamation mark on it? And why do the series' characters sometimes look like they're flashing gang signs?
