There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Kuja and his eyeliner are joining the cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

Battlezone is going old-school with Classic mode

With its too-high price out of the gate, Battlezone has become something of an underappreciated gem in the PlayStation VR lineup. It doesn't help that you really need three players if not a full four-person group to get the most out it. Bu...   read

The leaks were wrong: Pokken Tournament welcomes...Croagunk?!
