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

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
