See Ramza in all his Dissidia glory right here

Over the past few months we've covered all of the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade character reveals, and the last character is a pretty welcome surprise -- Final Fantasy Tactics' Ramza Beoulve. You can watch him in action for the first t...   read

Now you can throw a fit in public with Mario Party Arcade

You're leading by four Stars in Mario Party -- it's down to the final few turns -- and you've won most of the minigames so far so you're pretty sure the Minigame Star in the bag. Then your friend uncovers a hidden Star, gets a free Boo...   read

Obscure Video Games: Top 5 Bosses of Ninja Baseball Bat Man

Ninja Baseball Bat Man is not a baseball game. It also has nothing to do with Batman. It's actually a wacky arcade beat-'em-up released in 1993 by Irem (maker of R-Type). You might assume it's just another example of Japanese weirdness. How...   read

Review: The Bug Butcher

When I first heard about The Bug Butcher last year, I thought it looked like a nice modern take on the bubble-popping shooter Super Pang. But I held off. I have a regrettable history of playing games in Steam Early Access only to completely...   read

Ramza is coming soon to Dissida Final Fantasy arcade

Right now, the roster for the Dissida Final Fantasy arcade edition is complete. Well it mostly is, outside of Final Fantasy Tactics' Ramza, who will be added in "soon," according to Famitsu. Ramza was initially teased back in Nove...   read

Namco is partnering with Hooters in Japan to open up an arcade

I've already professed my love for Japanese arcades, having visited some for the first time a few months back, but this is something else entirely. Namco Bandai is reportedly teaming up with Hooters to bring a "Gaming Barside-B" concept arc...   read

Final Fantasy's Vaan isn't a street rat: I don't buy that

I've always had a lukewarm relationship with Final Fantasy XII, and its protagonist, Vaan. The only thing it really did for me was ape Final Fantasy XI's combat and add in gambits. Post-game content was pretty cool compared to most of...   read

Hahahaha: Tidus shows his stuff in Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

Tidus (Teedus) is kind of an awkward protagonist. X was the first fully-voiced Final Fantasy game, and Square really tried to force in some strange subplots and scenes meant to evoke emotion -- instead, they ended up being weird ...   read

Does anyone like Zidane? I don't hear him talked about much

Whenever the "best" Final Fantasy discussion comes up, VI is almost always near the top for a reason. Then you start getting into uncharted territory, with games like V and VII getting thrown around. But one I see most ...   read

Dengeki has straight gameplay, too. The Koei Tecmo-made Dissidia Final Fantasy is chilling arcades in Japan for a while, but could come to PS4 at some point.   read

Fan favorite Terra takes a step up to the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade plate

Terra is often a fan favorite Final Fantasy character -- heck, anyone from VI is usually a top choice. What makes her especially badass in Dissidia is that she can Trance mid-fight, turning her into her Esper form. She's also...   read

Can I...have Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade now?

A lot of people have been down on Dissidia in the past, but I see it as a spiritual successor of sorts to Square Enix's Ehrgeiz (good God that game could use a remake). I'm a bit bummed, then, that the arcade version will likely ...   read
