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...

Tamsoft's Senran Kagura and Onechanbara are now on Steam

A pair of Tamsoft's sexed-up action games, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Onechanbara Z2: Chaos, made their debuts on Steam in the past few days after previously releasing as PlayStation exclusives. While both games were published by XSE...

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...

'Merica: Nioh will have dismemberment added in the West

A trailer was released alongside the announcement that Team Ninja's Nioh would be getting a demo on the PlayStation 4 this month, as seen above. In the YouTube comments, viewer Alucard3362 begged the developers to include dismembermen...

Slain looks sufficiently intimidating in this launch trailer

After a round of delays, Wolf Brew Games is bringing its brutal hack-and-slash platformer Slain! to Steam tomorrow, March 24. The console versions are still coming, but not until later this year. The lighting, particle effects, and sometim...

Review: Hyrule Warriors Legends

From its announcement to the conclusion of my multi-100-hour playthrough of Hyrule Warriors, I was enthralled. It was a match made in heaven, mashing up Zelda with Dynasty Warriors, and all of the parties involved deserve a ton of prai...

Here's your first look at Dragon Quest Heroes II

Square Enix has shared the first images of Dragon Quest Heroes II, and it doesn't look dramatically different from its predecessor. That isn't too surprising, considering its predecessor debuted just a year ago and looked perfectly good. We...

Slain delayed again, has a sweet new headbanging GIF

Good things come to those who wait. This quote extols the importance of patience. We've been taught our entire lives to be patient people, to just wait a little longer for what we want. It'll be worth it. Hopefully that's true regarding Sla...

 
 
 
Slain! preview photo

Slain! requires a surprising amount of restraint

One glance at Wolf Brew Games' Slain! and it's immediately obvious where it draws inspiration from. This is hack-and-slash action from the '80s and '90s that takes no prisoners in its violent pursuit. The gore-filled "everything m...
