Hack-and-slash adventure Severed now on Nintendo Switch

While Severed eventually made the rounds on PlayStation Vita, Wii U, iOS, and 3DS, I can't help but feel like many of us slept on it. People know, love, and bring up Guacamelee! all the time. But Severed? I don't hear its name come up much....

Why the hell haven't you played Afro Samurai?

Every time I see a discussion of underappreciated or underrated games, it's always the same ole usual suspects: Spec Ops: The Line, Binary Domain, Ninja Blade, Deadly Premonition, and so on. Whenever I bring up Afro Samurai there's nev...

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...

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...
