This new art from Vanillaware is anything but juvenile

What is going on with this Dragon's Crown figure?

I'm almost at a loss for words other than to say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. The last Dragon's Crown Amazon figure (that I've seen, anyway) was over the top in ways you would expect given the source material, but that de...

Can I just...have Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir now?

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is like a whole new game

Odin Sphere was one of the first games I played with my wife, and we had a perfect system. She would play a lot of the core areas during the day, and at night, I would plant seeds, gather food, and level up while she took a nap -- after wak...

Review: Muramasa Rebirth: Tales of the Nekomata DLC

Muramasa Rebirth is a fine upgrade to the original game, but there was one thing that didn't sit right with me. For whatever reason, someone decided to take the only new content that was created for the game (four new characters with o...
