Only in Japan: Destroy Tokyo as giant robot school girl in VR

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...   read

School Girl Zombie Hunter English trailer suggests localization, but is absolutely NSFW

The only thing that irritates me more than changing iconic hats is when in zombie-related media people refuse to refer to them as just "zombies." No, they have to try ever so hard to avoid the term, preferring phrases like "those...those......   read
