Memory spared: Freedom Wars gets retail release in Europe

The Monster Hunter x headphones Vita game Freedom Wars was originally only coming to Europe digitally. This upset some people. Maybe their internet access is limited. Maybe they don't want to spend money on over-pri...   more

Lords of the Fallen trailer: Lustful women and a moody CCR cover

Lords of the Fallen sits somewhere between Darksiders (#darksiders2) and Dark Souls. The trailer, with the God of War-styled heavy petting foursome, leans toward the former.  With the trailer comes the announcement that those who pre-order get bumped up to a Limited Edition, which just means some weapons, The Monk's Decipher DLC, and a soundtrack.   more

This Santa is blasÚ, this mob-man is terrified: Bayonetta 2 is wacky

The choice between badass Santa and comically scared mob boss for the header image was a hard one. The Santa thing is a bit trite, I guess, but he wins out. Still, look at that guy's face.  Bayonetta 2 looks insane,...   more

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun.    more

Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura designed a Batman figure that looks like a Gundam

Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight. The first prototype, above, is gracing Comic Con and looking a bit like Death Scythe from Gundam Wing (with some Spawn in there, maybe).   more

New Sony Santa Monica logo looks less like it belongs on an Ed Hardy shirt

Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind God of War and helping hand on a bunch of other things, has a new logo. I like it. It also has more versatility than the previous Ed Hardy scrawl, as seen with the Hohokum color scheme. I appreciate a logo morphing itself to accommodate whatever it's trying to brand. Or maybe that's more subtle and insidious. Looks nice, though.   more

Link suplexes giant rock cylinders and smashes in Hyrule Warriors

The most fun bit here is definitely picking up enemies as they flail ineptly. The rest is pure carnage as Link wrecks underlings and even a giant mouthed boss worm with these clobbering gloves and ball and chain.  Much more brute force than Zelda with the wind waker.   more
