Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder looks wild

Either I've been asleep at the keyboard or ACE Team and Atlus haven't had much to say about Rock of Ages 2 as of late, because I completely forgot this game was happening. That's maybe for the best, though -- the sequel looks as weird as ev...

Review: Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception

"Utawarerumono" is a bit of a mouthful, even for folks who can speak Japanese, and probably even more so for those who can't. In fact, mispronouncing the title as "Underwater Ray Romano" was a big meme of the mid-2000s for a certain segment...
