Review: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2

Bandai Namco has done such a wonderful job revitalizing Pac-Man. It's gotten to the point where even if you weren't all that into the original decades-old game, you're still liable to succumb to Pac-Man fever. The Championship Edition serie...   read

I haven't been all that jazzed about Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, but a few updates from Bandai Namco have changed my tune a lil' bit. Majin Vegeta is confirmed, but the "Expert Mission" mode is what I'm really interested in. It allows up ...   read

Bandai Namco is hosting a limited-time Gundam VR experience in Japan

Japan loves VR, and you can't get more Japanese than VR Gundam. Naturally, Bandai Namco knows this, so they're introducing a mobile suit experience at the VR Zone location in Tokyo. It'll cost you 1,000 yen (roughly $10) for eight minutes, ...   read

Little Nightmares looks messed up in all the right ways

Remember Hunger? Maybe not its name (those one-word titles sure have a habit of slipping out of mind for me), but the unnerving, surreal, not-quite-right world should seem vaguely familiar. Bandai Namco has opted to publish the Tarsier Stu...   read
