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

Is anyone even excited for Tekken 7?

Tekken has always rocked it with extra modes. Sports minigames, beat 'em up gaidens -- they're par for the course. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution doesn't look as crazy as some past releases but it seems up there in terms of variety, at l...   read

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's newest gameplay trailer is definitely marvelous

I'm so glad to be eating my words here. While I had worried about the art direction of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (even going as far as nitpicking character size and the quasi-realism bringing it closer to Contest of Champions' art style)...   read

These Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite screenshots show off more of its worrying art style

Since I'm a huge Versus series stan (more crossovers please), I pretty much spent the bulk of the day yesterday hyping myself up over Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite's story trailer and info. But after letting it sink in, I realized there may b...   read

Bojack and Goku Black Rose coming to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 April 25th

When I started playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 last October, I had no idea I'd still be playing six months later. It's not the greatest game, but it's got the kind of content that's pretty great to mash through for a short bursts at a time....   read
