Azure Striker Gunvolt, unlike Mighty No. 9, gets an anime after two games under its belt

Mighty No. 9 put the cart before the horse. It put a whole bazaar before it, actually, as Inafune and his team banked on the fact that everyone would love the idea of showing up Capcom enough to connect with newcomer Beck and his inaug...   read

There's very little lost in translation with the mobile version of Lumines

I played Ittle Dew 2, and you should too

We found out about Ittle Dew 2 roughly this time last year, and it's coming along pretty nicely based on the near-final build I played at MineCon today. While the first thing you'll probably compare it to is Zelda (and you'd be accurate, fr...   read

Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron

In the several days since Destiny: Rise of Iron launched, I've basically been doing nothing but play it. While it's meant to last casual players weeks on end, my raid group and I chewed through, and although we still have some SIVA Clu...   read

Valkyria: Azure Revolution is back for more with a new demo after fan feedback

Sega is trying again with the "2.0" demo for Valkyria: Azure Revolution. As it turns out, taking a storied strategic franchise and plopping tons of action elements into it might polarize fans, so the developers have tweaked a bunch of ...   read

Damn, everyone seems to have seen the Nintendo NX but us
