An old man and some kids dressed up to sell you this Dragon Quest PS4

Capcom is working on something big, also expects to sell two million more Resident Evil 7 units

It's a bit vague, but Capcom claims that a "major title" will be out before March 31, 2018 -- a title that they haven't unveiled yet. Okay so it's very vague, but at least we know that Capcom isn't just relying on remakes and remasters. Spe...   read

Of course Japan gets a cool Dragon Quest Metal Slime New 2DS XL

Sony hits 60 million PS4 shipments as it closes in on the PS3's 80 million

It's fascinating to look back and see the lifetime sales of every console. I totally forgot that the PS2 is still ahead of everything -- it's not even close -- as it towers over the number two spot, the PS1, by over 50 million (PS2 is at 15...   read

ARMS' new character is a slightly more anthropomorphic version of Flubber

Flubber? Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man? Slimer from Ghostbusters? This dude reminds me of many things (even Bemax from Big Hero 6 for some reason), but this stretchy green weirdo is none of those. No, his name is Helix, lik...   read

Blood on the Sand had helicopters because 50 Cent's son wanted them

These days, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand exists in my mind as little more than a fever dream. I still own a copy, but it's been years since I've played the absurd cover-based shooter, much less thought about it. Things I vaguely remember: a d...   read
