ACE Team's strange little first-person number, Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition, has hit Xbox LIVE Arcade today. It would probably be easier to explain the plot of David Lynch's Eraserhead than to try to convey the narrative of Zeno Clash, so I...   read

Ten Minute Taste: Last Rebellion

If you've ever played one, you'll know that ten minutes is barely enough for a whiff, much less a taste of the typical RPG. That's why we recorded eleven minutes of footage from NIS-America's new title, Last Rebellion, due February 23rd. T...   read

Ten Minute Taste: No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Jonathan Holmes just posted his review of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and to call it glowing would be an understatement. I have to agree, as I've been having a hell of a good time with it myself. If you're still not sold on how go...   read

Ten Minute Taste: Darksiders

I’ve spent a couple of hours or so with THQ and Vigil Games’ Darksiders. I can glean from these initial hours that the game is more than what I thought it was: a God of War clone with some Zelda spice. No, it appears that Darks...   read

Five Minute Taste: 0 Day Attack on Earth

Ten Minute Taste: Final Fantasy XIII

I'm a good few hours into Final Fantasy XIII now. My verdict so far? It's not groundbreaking, unless you count the visuals. Otherwise, it's a good, solid RPG so far. The battle system has just started to open up, as has the story. For the ...   read
