Dragon Quest Heroes II kicks off a month of free updates

The next vinyl from iam8bit is a big one: Persona 5! It's such a good candidate that I can see it pushing people into game vinyl ownership for the first time -- assuming they have the money. There will be two sets, both of which will ship i...   read

A few months back we got wind that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 exists, and that it's coming by the end of this year! Though I wouldn't get too hyped up as we barely have any screens and under two minutes of gameplay to work with, leaving fo...   read

PSA: Persona 5's free swimsuit DLC is out now

If you're knee deep in Persona 5 but feel like you haven't accomplished much yet, I feel you. It's a long ass video game, made even longer when you're compelled to re-run dungeons to level up and wander around Tokyo aimlessly trying to cour...   read

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...   read

Two Worlds II gets an extremely tardy add-on next month

One of the more surprising under-the-radar stories of last year was that developer Reality Pump was working on DLC for Two Worlds II. It wasn't so much a shock that a game was getting supplemental content -- that has become a near-staple of...   read
