From the beginning, this murder (and I've seen a lot of them over the course of my career) struck me as too simple. Kyle Hebert -- a voice actor you may recognize as the voice of Ryu from Street Fighter -- was found de... read
In my mind, Rodea: The Sky Soldier has two things going for it. First, "Rodea" sounds like something that would get into a brawl with Godzilla, and I'm all about that. Second, this Wii U and 3DS title is centered on a sky kin... read
Rodea: The Sky Soldier looks beautiful on the Wii U and this new Japanese trailer proves the 3DS version isn't to be scoffed at. This aerial combat game has been in development for around five years at Prope, the studio... read

The tactical RPG came out in Japan last year. There's a lot of pedigree behind it, too. La... read
We all know the PlayStation Vita is now the de facto home for all things Japanese. Ports, remakes, re-releases, and original content all trickle down similarly to the little handheld that could, and the Vita port of 2010's PS... read feature

This may be me projecting. I think about s-CRY-ed a lot. I don't know why. And it certainly did not invent the "guy with cool arm" genre. Still, the first half of this trailer reminded me a lot of s-CRY-ed, and then the... read
