Holy crap, Taiko no Tatsujin is getting an English release

Hell must be feeling a little chilly today, because the boys are back in town. By "boys", I am referring to Katsu and Don, the cutesy drum brothers that herald Bandai Namco's Taiko no Tatsujin rhythm game franchise. They're here to bri...

You can watch a ton of anime next week on Twitch

I still remember the days when Twitch was adamantly not the streaming service for you if you wanted to stream something other than a videogame. It wasn't even that long ago, all things considered. But that's all over now, because we're...

Watch out, Splatoon 2 may punish excessive disconnecting

Now that I own a Nintendo Switch (I literally JUST cracked my screen protector putting it into the dock), I'm as excited as the next guy to try out Splatoon 2. That said, new developments have me a little bit worried, given my comparat...

Review: God Wars: Future Past

When last folks heard about God Wars: Future Past, its subtitle was God Wars: Beyond Time. Whatever the real motivation for the change, I think the new, current subtitle is a bit more appropriate.  Playing God Wars feels like step...

Review: Star Trek: Bridge Crew

If there's any quintessential Star Trek fantasy, it's probably of being on the bridge of one of the series' iconic starships. Be it the Enterprise, Defiant, or Voyager, Star Trek has long defined itself through command decks and t...

Early Access Review: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Let's not beat around the bush: I like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. I like it quite a lot. In fact, I feel a little bit of gratitude towards it, or more accurately, towards Bluehole and Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for coming up with it...

Review: Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception

"Utawarerumono" is a bit of a mouthful, even for folks who can speak Japanese, and probably even more so for those who can't. In fact, mispronouncing the title as "Underwater Ray Romano" was a big meme of the mid-2000s for a certain segment...

Review: The Caligula Effect

After about 40 hours playing The Caligula Effect, I can confirm to you, dear readers, that this JRPG has nothing to do with the legendary 1980 erotic historical drama Caligula. I would understand if you decided to stop reading now.

Sharing or no sharing, Persona 5 brings the memes

Atlus may have effectively banned in-depth streaming for Persona 5, but that won't stop people from turning arguably the most anticipated JRPG of the last few years into a meme machine.  In the few days since the game's release, in fac...

Some fans are pissed about Persona 5's localization

Localizing a game is no easy task, especially a game like Persona 5. It's a good game, but also a huge one, and localizing it was apparently a mammoth undertaking for Atlus USA. With reportedly 50% more dialogue in its script compared ...

You can ogle Summer Lesson's English release in April

I remember being super jazzed about the eventual release of Summer Lesson, and not just because the Tekken team's pet VR project would let me hang out with that most nonexistent of creatures: A pretty teen with no respect for personal space...
