Tokyo Game Show 2015 games of the (tokyo game) show

Like a kidney stone through the urethra of my life, another Tokyo Game Show has passed. We saw some great things in Japan: katsudon, vape stores, attempted park fights, coming at the king, and video games. Some of those video games -- the b...   read

Japanese arcades aren't just fun, they're museums

In the US, arcades are mostly a relic. On the east coast where I grew up, other than the overpriced Dave & Buster's (and perhaps DisneyQuest, which is being closed down after 18 years in 2016), it's really tough to find an arcade. ...   read

Pokken Tournament is a fun, deep little brawler

I'm still out here in Japan to cover TGS, and even though this is just my first time in the country, I'm already itching to come back. You only need to walk a few blocks to see video game and anime references everywhere, as Tokyo is constan...   read

Disney Magical World 2 is pushing the Frozen property pretty hard

So, Frozen. I must be one of the only people on the planet who doesn't like it. I mean, I love Elsa -- it's about time Idina Menzel and her amazing voice got the respect she deserves -- but the rest, including most of the songs, just d...   read

If you enjoyed Resident Evil HD, you'll probably like the Zero remake

Resident Evil HD was pretty freaking great. Finally, Capcom stopped fumbling around with the franchise (I liked some parts of 6 well enough, but could have done without it), and went back to its roots. It's a polarizing choice for...   read

I played Criminal Girls 2 and wasn't sexually aroused at all
