Review: Namco Museum

Namco really does have quite the selection of classics in its library. That would probably explain why it has released far too many "collections" over the years. This newest one hits the Switch, which already gives it the added benefit of b...

Tekken 7 photo

Tekken 7 could be heading to PC

In the last few years, PC’s become a pretty great platform for fighting games. Sure there’s your Mortal Kombat X trainwrecks, but then there’s also Skullgirls, Street Fighter V and BlazBlue to make up for it. If a survey b...

 
 
Pac-Man Funko photo

These Funko Pac-Man figures are distressing

The hell is up with Ms. Pac-man here? Why is Pac-Man all square? These Funko figures of the classic pill popping arcade icons are up to their knees in the uncanny valley and I don't appreciate it one bit. Personally, I've never understood w...

What is Bandai Namco teasing?

Bandai Namco has just released a countdown site, teasing the announcement of uh… something. Right now it’s anyone’s guess as to what it could be, as “hunger” doesn’t give us a lot to go on. Is it Armore...

Namco shutting down Soulcalibur: Lost Swords

Roughly a year and a half after its launch, Namco is ending its free-to-play PlayStation 3 experiment Soulcalibur: Lost Swords. It was apparently not great and coupled with a bad microtransaction scheme.  Namco even made a real fuckin...

Pokken Tournament will be at Dave and Buster's

Pokkén Tournament will be available for testing at the arcade/restaurant chain Dave and Buster's, according to executive Kevin Bachus. This news is somewhat unsurprising, considering that specific Dave and Buster's locations wil...

Yoshimitsu is coming to Tekken 7

Yoshimitsu’s turned into a weird mix of Cthulhu, a Xenomorph, NiGHTS, and Frieza from Dragonball for his appearance in Tekken 7. The video released by Namco shows him in all of his swordy, hovery, self-stabby glory; all while those ...

Obscure Video Games: Hachiemon

Hachiemon is not nearly as weird as it looks. Natsume and Namco unleashed this GBA game onto the people of Japan back in 2003, perhaps as their response to Kirby. The character, however, was created in 1995 as the mascot for the Kansai Tele...

Bandai Namco is behind new space robot MOBA Supernova

You can play Supernova today. The MOBA from developer Primal Game Studios is publisher Bandai Namco's next push into the realm of free-to-play (you'll remember the Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates). Namco also sees en...

This Japanese grandma accidentally bought a derelict arcade

In sunny Chiba, Japan, a woman purchased a building that actually ended up encasing a time capsule of arcade goodness straight out of the late '80s through '90s. Among the relics were almost fifty Sega Aero and Astro City cabinets, along wi...

Namco has made another Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Coming to PS3, 360, Wii U, and 3DS this fall, a sequel to "an emotionless venture that's devoid of any soul or effort." I guess Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which is based on the new Pac-Man television series, did well enough to war...

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

On paper, the thought of participating in an eight-player Dragon Ball Z battle sounds like the stuff of fanboy dreams. Blasting Kamehamehas across the chasms of Namek while fighting alongside your favorite Saiyans could be as exhilarating v...

Super Heroine Chronicle is one game NA will never see

If it's one thing An American Tale taught me, it's to "never say never." But come on, what really are the chances of Super Heroine Chronicle landing on North American shores? It takes the mash-up wackiness of the Super Robot Taisen strateg...

Three more enter the mix in Soulcalibur: Lost Swords

I like Soulcalibur II HD Online, but boy oh boy is the online a nightmare. Because of this, I'm holding my breath with the free-to-play offering Namco is whipping up for the next installment of their fabled fighter: Soulcalibur: Lost Swords...

Review: Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers

I’ve never seen as much tragedy in a fighting game before I played Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers. Maybe I should have been more prepared with a fighting game based on the lore of the classic anime, but as a casual partaker in Japanese a...

When I was a kid, this song used to scare the shit out of Im not sure if it was because it plays when you get sucked inside a giant head, or maybe the chord progression, but it made me unable to play the game until I got older :P
