Review: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series: Tangled Up in Blue

It's only appropriate given the episodic, seasonal structure of Telltale's games, but the opening moments of most Telltale releases tend to start strong. Events like the heist sequence from Batman: The Telltale Series' first episode and the...   read

Remake history this summer with the next Fate game

Have you ever wished your free-to-play mobile diversions committed more historical heresies in pursuit of the almighty cute? Well, too bad, because now Fate/Grand Order is coming to English-language phones and pads near you. In an...   read

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...   read

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 ...   read

Star Trek Online celebrates First Contact day with some Steppenwolf

If history turns out like Star Trek predicts, we'll be meeting the Vulcans for the first time in about forty-six years, after the third or fourth World Wars. In the meantime, though, there's Star Trek Online, which celebrated the futur...   read

A Summer with the Shiba Inu is a visual novel about dogs, apparently

I actually can't tell if this is a real thing, but with the last minutes of Dogstructoid bearing down on us (long may it live), I'll take my chances. Quill Studios is developing a dog-themed visual novel called A Summer with the Shiba ...   read

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...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read

Review: DYING: Reborn VR

I have to admit that despite having a PS VR in my possession since late last year, I haven't played with it all that often. Partly this is due to real-life concerns butting in, and partly due to the deluge of excellent non-VR titles of the ...   read

Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...   read

Review: Sniper Elite 4

I love sniping in games, but I never do it. That’s because I’m terrible at sniping in video games. Give me a sniper rifle during a multiplayer match and you may as well have pulled the plug on my session, for that&rsqu...   read

Review in Progress: Sniper Elite 4

Here's a fun fact for you: The invasion of Normandy, one of the largest military operations ever conducted, was delayed! Originally scheduled to take place on June 5th, 1944, a forecast of bad weather convinced Allied leadership to put thei...   read

American Pixels pays tribute to American game music

Mention a "video game music tribute album" and the first thing that usually comes to mind is a tribute to an old-school Japanese franchise, like The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, or Final Fantasy. Y'know games that working composers in t...   read

Star Trek Online opens its 7th year and 12th season with aliens and UFOs

It's hard to believe that it's been seven years since I started playing Star Trek Online, but there's no denying it today, as developer Cryptic Studios rolls out its latest seasonal content update, "Season 12: Reckoning". As per tradition, ...   read

Oh wow, XCOM 2's Long War 2 overhaul is out now

And here I was, about to write up a bit of late news about how Pavonis Interactive (née Long War Studios) planned "Long War 2" mega-mod for XCOM 2 would include some new types of missions, when the damn thing just up and dr...   read

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

If I didn’t know better and wasn’t aware that the timelines don’t quite add up, I’d say the subtext around the release of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone feels aggressive, even adversarial....   read

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

It's been a pretty grim year for many people, but all things considered, it's been great if all you care about is games and anime! Thank goodness, then, that we're on a website primarily concerned with those things, which means I don't have...   read

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization might be the best Sword Art Online game yet.  Then again, we might not be talking about all that much. This is, after all, just the third major Sword Art Online game (fifth, counting ...   read

Review: Root Letter

At first, Root Letter (stylized as “√Letter”) appears to try to hook players with the thought of solving a crime. A murder mystery is afoot, and it’s up to me, the player, to solve it. But actually playing ...   read

Go on a road trip with your buds in a Final Fantasy XV supercar

Racing games often get associated with car commercials, but it's more unusual for RPGs to get into the mix. But those madmen actually did it. And using Final Fantasy to boot! "The Star of Lucis", a one-of-a-kind, custom Audi R8 Superca...   read

Summer Lesson to get an English edition for Asia

Last year I mentioned that Summer Lesson, a Project Morpheus tech demo cooked up by Bandai Namco's Tekken team and later expanded to a full game, looked like everything I wanted out of VR. That hasn't changed, as even after a year it's...   read

Review: Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

When it first debuted a few years ago, Psycho-Pass was well-regarded among anime fans and critics alike. The show's dense plotting, bleak setting, police-procedural chops, and cyberpunk flair called to mind landmark sci-fi anime l...   read
