This is the Godzilla trailer I've been waiting for

It may not be technically impressive, but like Brittany, like Elliot, I say that's okay -- it's Godzilla! Frankly, I'm just happy to see this project exist even if, for now, Bandai Namco is bringing it to Japan only. This tr...

Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday photo
Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday
by Jordan Devore

This week on Steam, you can check out the superb Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ for free as Namco plays the part of a "friendly" drug dealer. The promotion lasts until Monday at 10:00am Pacific and in that time the game and its DLC are 66 percent off.

Building up a huge chain of ghosts -- a ghost train, if you will -- and then eating them all in the span of a couple seconds is so damn satisfying. See that image up there? Uh huh.

Just play this already. Cancel plans. Shun responsibilities. There is only time for Pac-Man, now.

What's new in God Eater 2: Rage Burst? photo
What's new in God Eater 2: Rage Burst?
by Elliot Gay

I put a sizable chunk of time into the original God Eater 2 on the Vita late last year. It was a solid entry in the long line of recent hunting action games, but certainly not without its fair share of issues. It suffered from a lack of content, and its AI was dreadful. The plentiful content updates helped a lot; online coop, new story missions, extra equipment. At the end of the day though, it still felt incomplete. The underlying mechanics were strong, so I was hopeful that we'd see an upgraded version ala Monster Hunter and the Ultimate/G releases sometime in the near future.

Enter God Eater 2: Rage Burst

Featuring a new storyline, new characters, new weapons, and all sorts of other additions, Rage Burst's developers are pushing it as the definitive version of the game. I had a chance to go hands on with the Vita build and clear the two demo quests at Tokyo Game Show, and I came away feeling good about the changes.

Tales of Zestiria's combat is fast and furious photo
Tales of Zestiria's combat is fast and furious
by Elliot Gay

Ask most Tales fans what game has their absolute favorite version of the Linear Motion Battle System (LMBS), and you're likely to get a wide variety of answers. Some prefer the 2D combat from the Tales of Destiny PS2 remake and its sequel, while others hold up Tales of Graces F as representative of the direction the system should go. While I wasn't a huge fan of the latter game, I adored its fast paced, technical combat, and was let down when I eventually played through Tales of Xillia. It wasn't necessarily bad, it just wasn't what I wanted from the series.

I had heard that Tales of Zestiria would be borrowing major elements from Graces' combat, and after ten minutes of time with the TGS demo, I can definitely see the similarities.

Godzilla: Walking in the shoes of the king of monsters photo
Godzilla: Walking in the shoes of the king of monsters
by Elliot Gay

Fun fact. When I was a child, my mother sat me down in front of Godzilla films and subsequently burned them into my brain. As a result, I ended up learning Japanese and moving to Japan as an adult. It's not a stretch to say that I'm where I am because of the big G.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Bandai Namco was developing a Godzilla game for the PS3. The big monster has had more than his fair share of game appearances, but none of them have ever been any good. I recall playing Super Godzilla on the SNES and trying my best to convince myself that it was the best game I had ever played. Needless to say, I had some issues believing my own words.

I pissed off a bunch of Bloodborne's villagers right quick photo
I pissed off a bunch of Bloodborne's villagers right quick
by Brett Makedonski

Maybe it shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but the beings hanging out in the Tokyo Game Show showing of Bloodborne weren't exactly enamored by my presence. That's putting it lightly. Cautiously trekking through the village that the demo thrust me into, I quickly found out that none of them wanted to be my friend, and all of them just wanted me dead.

Some of them succeeded in their mission.

Able to select from a few different characters for the demo, I toggled between a fairly well-balanced build and one that favored agility. Rolling, blocking, and backward jumping to my heart's content, I disposed of these neighborhood crime watch suspicious suspects with relative ease. That is until they decided that group efforts would be more effective. Turns out these freaks of the night know a thing or two about efficiency and teamwork.

It's tough to get a real feel for a title like Bloodborne from a 20-minute demo without time to flesh out a unique character. I mean, it was Souls-esque with more fluid feeling controls in a setting that actually sets itself apart from the Souls series. That's grand; I'm all in. Given that it was my proper introduction to the game (I just kept missing it at other shows), what a fine first impression. But, a cheery visit and maybe a useless housewarming gift would've been a bit more inviting than death ad nauseam. I guess that's just how From Software rolls.

Namco gives us a nice long look at Tales of Zestiria

Tales of Zestiria is on display at Tokyo Game Show this week, but those of us not cavorting around Japan will have to settle for this extended peek at the forthcoming role-playing game. Bandai Namco aims to release Tales of Zestiria in Japan on January 22, 2015. No word yet on when exactly the publisher plans to localize the PS3 title for western audiences, though.
