Taro Yoko's next project is a mobile game titled SINoALICE

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a mobile gamer. While I do enjoy the occasional session of Ridiculous Fishing or Downwell on my phone, I'll usually gravitate towards other platforms whenever I just want to pick up ...   read

The Dynasty Warriors series is my favorite video game series overall. Musou games bring me a joy I can't describe, really. It's just so satisfying to mow down waves of enemies as a super powered jerk who couldn't care less about their medic...   read

Yakuza 0 will be getting some free DLC next month

Yakuza 0 is really great. It may possibly be the best Yakuza game released in the West thus far, but there was one strange omission: unlockable costumes. In some of the previous Yakuza titles, beating the game allowed you to select costumes...   read

Neko Atsume is going to be the greatest video game movie ever

Video game movies have had it tough for like, ever really. I've seen some competent ones, I've seen some that bordered on good, but I still haven't seen a great adaptation. I'm not sure what's to blame for all of their failures, but perhaps...   read

It will require a heat action to open the Yakuza 0 Business Edition

I think a little part of me died when I saw John Hardin, Sega's PR manager, smash the box of Yakuza 0 The Business Edition with a hammer. It was hysterical, but all I could think of was how damaged the game would be. You shouldn't damage Ya...   read

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

Opoona is a baller, shot-caller in Musou Stars
