Star Ocean review
  Watch Video While Star Ocean: The Second Story was one of my favorite PS1 JRPGs, the rest of the series never grabbed me. It's not that it's bad in any way -- each entry is pretty consistent, actually -- it's just that every time I'...   read

Akiba's Beat team 'thinking about' PC port

While in Los Angeles last week for E3, I had an opportunity to sit down with Acquire's Kohta Takano, the director behind the Tenchu and Way of the Samurai studio's latest project, Akiba's Beat. Akiba's Beat is a continuation of sorts of Acq...   read

 
 
Nioh interview
It's been a long and winding road for Nioh. Koei unveiled the project a decade and a half ago -- four years prior to the company's 2008 merger with Tecmo, whose own Team Ninja (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) is now handling dev...   read

These new Final Fantasy XV screens show it's all about brodowns and throwdowns

With little more than three months left before Final Fantasy XV releases, we've come to know what we should expect from it. Or, at least in the early-going. Things could (and very well might!) drastically change, but that starting stuf...   read

 
 
Contraptions review
  Watch Video If you played Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop DLC, you already know the basics of its latest offering, the Contraptions Workshop. Much like the previous pack, the Contraptions Workshop doesn't add any new quests, characters, o...   read

Yo-Kai Watch's 'create-a-cat' feature is the cutest thing you'll see all day

Jibanyan is the mascot of Yo-Kai Watch for a reason -- people love cats, and they're the best. Level-5 is doubling down on the nyan too, as Yo-Kai Watch 3 will have a full on "My nyan" create-a-cat feature, which accommo...   read

This Tales of Berseria clip should tell you everything you need to know

While Zestiria was a good old fashioned Tales game, I think Berseria looks a bit flashier -- a little more interesting overall. And this overview trailer from Japan really helps its case, showing off the unique cast, flavorfu...   read

Meet the people of Neo San Francisco in 2064: Read Only Memories

Games like Snatcher and Gabriel Knight were a little bit before my time, but they're pretty intriguing nonetheless. The fine folks at MidBoss do seem to remember those times, though, and 2064: Read Only Memories looks to recall th...   read

 
 
Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE

Mass Effect: Andromeda ditches Paragon/Renegade system for 'shades of gray'

Given how much Mass Effect erotica exists, its fitting that the newest entry in the series will move away from simplistic binaries and towards "shades of gray." How many, you ask? Perchance 50? My ankles tied, Garrus bent me over the comman...   read

Someone allegedly tried to steal the Zelda: Breath of the Wild E3 demo

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the biggest games at E3 this year, and this caper involving that very project is easily one of the most interesting stories out of the event. According to Kotaku, a "17-year old game developer" trie...   read

Man, Geralt really knows how to kick it

Ben Schamma, also known as "Maul Cosplay," looks so much like The Witcher's Geralt that CD Projekt Red even hired him to be their model at E3. He not only sports the rocking beard and hair style, but has the look for it, all the way down to...   read

Your Mass Effect 3 ending choice won't affect Andromeda

If you're still bearing a grudge against Mass Effect 3's ending you may be happy to know that it doesn't factor into the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda, which was again conspicuously absent from E3. I'm happy to learn that because -- and I...   read

Are you picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse?

At first it was hard to make sense out of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (known in Japan as "Final"). Initially I thought it was just an expansion of sorts for IV, but as it turns out, it's a brand new game. Now you'll be playing as more...   read

Atlus reveals Persona 5's ninth party member, 'co-op system'

It might all be in Japanese, but Atlus has shown off a lot of Persona 5 gameplay during their special E3 stream. The main takeaway is the reveal of the ninth party member, named "Goro Akechi." He's not just a detective, but he's a high...   read
