Tekken has always rocked it with extra modes. Sports minigames, beat 'em up gaidens -- they're par for the course. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution doesn't look as crazy as some past releases but it seems up there in terms of variety, at l...   read

Nintendo's updated release schedule shows the 3DS still has fight left in it

Nintendo says a lot of things, and their cardinal rule seems to be "deny, deny, deny." When the Wii U was rumored to be on the way out, they denied it, only to confirm it weeks later. Folks thought the 3DS would meet the same fate given tha...   read

A few months back we got wind that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 exists, and that it's coming by the end of this year! Though I wouldn't get too hyped up as we barely have any screens and under two minutes of gameplay to work with, leaving fo...   read

PSA: Persona 5's free swimsuit DLC is out now

If you're knee deep in Persona 5 but feel like you haven't accomplished much yet, I feel you. It's a long ass video game, made even longer when you're compelled to re-run dungeons to level up and wander around Tokyo aimlessly trying to cour...   read

NieR: Automata's 2B outfit comes to Gravity Rush 2 next month

Even if it's not in the form of substantial expansions, I'm glad that Sony is still somewhat supporting Gravity Rush 2 -- the longer this game is in the spotlight, the better. Although most of that love has come in the form of costumes that...   read

Get a new look at Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Man, I'm chomping at the bit to try Final Fantasy XII again. I've cleared it twice -- once at launch, and I had another go around four years back, but the new visuals, presumably quicker load times, and the International Version conten...   read

Do you still do Pokemon Sun & Moon Global Missions? Game Freak is still making them

I played Pokemon Sun and Moon for weeks on end at launch. I was insatiable, and its postgame exceeded X and Y to the point where I could be busy for even longer. But eventually a lot of people I know stopped playing, the thri...   read

Jed really took to Kamiko when it hit the Japanese eShop recently, and for $5, I'd love to take the plunge in a roughly hour long rapid-fire retro jaunt. While the game was in English the trailer wasn't, so you can watch the below video and...   read

You have to acknowledge the amount of effort Nintendo has put behind Splatoon. While it always seemed like a kooky side project the publisher was proud to trot it out frequently at tradeshows and other events, and put their full weight behi...   read

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...   read
