Opoona is a baller, shot-caller in Musou Stars

One of my favorite things about the Nintendo Wii was all the weird games it got. Stuff like Elebits, WarioWare: Smooth Moves, The Dog Island, and Opoona. Opoona was especially odd in that its big gimmick was you could play the ent...

Fate/Extella has been delayed in North America

Sometimes, I can't help but wonder if the job of a games journalist is to report on nothing but delays. I'm being facetious, but considering the frequency in which delays are announced or confirmed, it is a thought that crosses my mind ever...
