Yoji Shinkawa, legendary Metal Gear artist, lends his talents to Call of Duty

"Wow," is the first thing I thought when I saw these. That's my usual reaction to anything Yoji Shinkawa, best known for his Metal Gear art does, especially his work for Zone of the Enders. But now he's working on a decidedly more...   read

Hard Corps: Uprising joins Xbox One backward compatibility

I figured with Microsoft already adding two games to the backward compatible list this week that we wouldn't see more. Not only have they added one of the best Contra games in a long time, but they also decided to include four other games. ...   read

Super Bombeman R runs so much better now

As much as Super Bomberman R missed the mark in some basic, fundamental ways, the developers have stuck with it, and I have to commend their post-launch support. The latest update is a big one, offering a much-smoother frame rate (if it isn...   read

If you can believe it, Konami is giving us free DLC on Friday for Super Bomberman R

[Update: That ended up being four levels and two accessories. Right on.] As was confirmed several weeks ago, Konami will be supporting Super Bomberman R post-launch with more content and tweaks. I was initially shocked to see that afte...   read

Ha, Konami is doing another Castlevania pachislot machine

I love how trolly the below commercial is. You open it, see the text, and hear the classic Castlevania music. It's so easy to get fired up, like maybe, just maybe Konami is coming out with a competitor for Bloodstained. But nope, it is...   read

Does not compute: Konami is doing free DLC for Super Bomberman R

During a Konami sponsored episode of The Game Theorists last night, free DLC for Super Bomberman R on the Switch was teased. Konami. Free DLC. I know, I'm still parsing this too. It might be a trick, but supposedly it's happening. Alth...   read

Super Bomberman R sold better in Japan than most of the series in the past 20 years

Super Bomberman R has room for improvement, but Konami has a lot to be excited for given its early sales numbers. Right now we just have Japan to go off of, but looking at Media Create sales, this is the first Bomberman game since...   read

Super Bomberman R will get a patch for 'control lag issues'

I wasn't holding out much hope that Super Bomberman R would see many updates, but it sounds like at least one important patch is on the way. Konami says it is "aware that some players are experiencing control lag issues" and that, better ye...   read

Review: Super Bomberman R

I was able to witness the rise and fall of Bomberman with my own eyes. It was one of the first games I ever played on the NES, and when developer Hudson Soft died in 2012, I poured one out for the once-great franchise. For six long years af...   read

Konami makes waifu wars literal with Bombergirl

With Super Bomberman R making its way to the Switch, I had hoped it meant Konami was going to usher in a new age of Bomberman games. But who could've guessed that meant introducing a new series full of buxom ladies? Announced at Japan Expo ...   read

The 'R' in Super Bomberman R means three different things

At last month's Nintendo Switch event, Konami revealed a new Bomberman game. This was notable for a few reasons: the last non-mobile Bomberman game came out in 2010 and Hudson Soft published it; Konami is making more than just PES ...   read

Brazzers did a Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain porn parody

Metal Rear Solid: The Phantom Peen took a lot longer to come out than Brazzers' Final Fantasy XV porn parody, but it seems like a passion project. From the dick-sucking Snake Eater reference to Boss and Hushy's accurate costuming to the iDr...   read

Super Bomberman R on Nintendo Switch will cost $50
