Game of Thrones should get the Warriors treatment next

It's a good time to be a Warriors/Musou fan. For us in the west, we just got our hands on Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, which according to Chris is pretty darn good. Later this month, our friends over in Japan get their first crack...

Review: Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star

I'll be the first to admit that when a Western release of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star was first announced, I couldn't help but be a little excited. Type-Moon's Fate universe is something that I hold a high level of adoratio...

Let it Die has passed a million downloads

Let it Die is one of those games I want to see continue doing what it's doing. Aside from Twitter clips and occasional forum mentions, I haven't seen all that much conversation surrounding Grasshopper Manufacture's hack-and-slash survival t...

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...

Musou Stars trailer features musou and stars

With the DLC for Hyrule Warriors finally complete, I now look forward to finding and becoming completely engrossed by my next musou obsession. Dragon Quest Heroes didn't quite tickle my fancy the way I thought it would, but if thi...

New Dynasty Warriors game is less bashing, more clicking

Dynasty Warriors has been going for about as long as Japan itself. You are basically an anime samurai superhero, running around slashing a bajillion dudes who stand around waiting to take it like the masochists they are. The latest 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...

Femto looks appropriately over-the-top in Berserk Warriors

Not too long ago, it was confirmed by Famitsu that Femto, fifth member of the God Hand and demonic form of Griffith, would be playable in Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. At the time, it was unknown as to how he'd actually handle...

Longing for more Castlevania? Chasm could be our best bet

In recent months, I've lost track of Chasm. I was on-board with the action-platform game when it was first coming through Kickstarter but, wow, that was actually back in 2013. Making games, even simple ones, takes lots of time. Making metro...

The giant, hellish bosses of Death's Gambit

Remember Death's Gambit? I didn't, but apparently I posted its reveal trailer early last year. Now we are getting a peek at some of the massive bosses we'll have to kill as Death's agent. Boss fights look a bit Dark Souls-like as they seem...

Review: MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies

I have a sneaky suspicion that Compile Heart will continue to make Hyperdimension Neptunia games until it's covered every single genre there is. So far we've had RPGs, a Musou-like, a tactical RPG, an idol-raising simulator, and now an...
