The next PSVR game, Steel Combat, is out in Japan tomorrow

With all of the issues Oculus is having, and the sufficient sales for PSVR, are we entering an era where developers start to port over their projects and favor the latter over the former? It's too early to tell, but for now, we're gett...   read

You can swap between 8-bit and HD visuals at any time in Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

A handful of games have done the whole "swap aesthetics" thing over the past few years or so, and it's a really great feature. Although I would have settled for an "either or" option that would entice me to beat the game twice, going above ...   read

Persona 5 still knows how to keep it weird in the Velvet Room

The Velvet Room is probably one of my favorite recurring elements in recent Persona games. Even if they have their own casts and distinct styles, I love having that one strange location to return to that ties it all together. In case y...   read

Watch Eiji Aonuma unbox Zelda: Breath of the Wild Limited Edition

I rushed to a GameStop the morning that the special editions for Zelda: Breath of the Wild were announced, and found that my store only had three of them -- I was third in line, but the guy in front of me "didn't like Zelda." Phew! If ...   read

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video

There's a lot going on this Japanese television ad for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Too much, probably! You're not going to want to see it if you've held out this long and remained relatively spoiler-free. Stay strong, and also...   read

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...   read

Get a look at the first 15 minutes of Toukiden 2

Toukiden 2 arrived in Japan in July of 2016, but given its niche premise of fighting oni during the Meiji era of Japan, it makes perfect sense that it's been held until "spring 2017" for the west. Koei Tecmo gave me the opportunity to test ...   read

This Overwatch and GoldenEye 64 mashup is just what I needed

There was a time where nearly every PC FPS had some form of a GoldenEye type mod, or some effort was made to create it. Before Halo swept the nation and gave us MLG, GoldenEye 64 was the gateway drug into the FPS genre for fo...   read

Japan's 1-2 Switch commercials look more fun than the game
