Frank West is rocking the dead look in this Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising trailer

Call me a hypocrite, but I think the trailer for Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising looks decent. The main game did basically nothing positive to change the Dead Rising formula, but playing as a zombie is something that was never even tackled. I d...   read

New Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash DLC trailer is softcore porn

By this point I shouldn't be surprised. The latest Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash trailer for the Dead or Alive DLC shows Marie, Honoka, and Ayane in suggestive positions getting squirted. There's some shooting gameplay as well. If...   read

PS Plus' April 2017 line-up certainly includes games

Review: Dark Souls III: The Ringed City

Well, it looks like this is it. Although From Software is billing it as the "close of the age of fire," Dark Souls III: The Ringed City could be the last taste of Souls for a long while. It's a journey that's lasted over eight yea...   read
