Bojack and Goku Black Rose coming to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 April 25th

When I started playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 last October, I had no idea I'd still be playing six months later. It's not the greatest game, but it's got the kind of content that's pretty great to mash through for a short bursts at a time....   read

If only Scarecrow had a brain in his full Injustice 2 gameplay trailer

When Scarecrow's rad, gangly Injustice 2 design was first revealed, I was hoping he would play equally as rad. After seeing his combos in action, I'm slightly disappointed. I'm happy his design is an after-effect of the fear toxin (that's a...   read

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy dattebayos to the West this Fall
