Mighty No. 9 dev puts publisher Deep Silver on blast for latest trailer

Yesterday, Mighty No. 9 publisher Deep Silver released a "Masterclass" trailer to explain some of the game's combat systems. At time of writing, it has 1,732 upvotes and 13,720 downvotes. That is to say, it's not going over well. One ...   read

Review: Severed

When Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee! came out three years ago (blarg), Jonathan Holmes called it a "sugar skull-covered playground to delight in and devour with mucho gusto," and I'd agree with that assessment. Vibrant colors, a won...   read

Review: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

We've all heard the expression "sex sells." It's the idea that our brains are so hardwired toward carnal pleasures that we'll buy anything so long as there is a pretty face and a nice ass we can associate with it. But let's be honest, that'...   read

Review: Salt and Sanctuary

Chris Carter may seem like the only Souls guy around here, but there are more of us lurking in the shadows, wishing we could review them too. When I saw that Ska Studios of Dishwasher fame was making its own 2D take on the Souls f...   read

Review: The Bit.Trip

The Bit.Trip series holds a special place in my heart. With a wonderful blend of rhythm-based mechanics and arcade-style gameplay spanning various genres, the games are easy to pick up, quick to fall in love with, and yet incredibly difficu...   read

Review: SteamWorld Heist

SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a completely differ...   read

Review: Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space

Two words. Giant. Bugs. Also giant spaceships, giant kaiju, and giant explosions. If you're looking for campy sci-fi action on your Vita look no further than Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space.   read

Review: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

I can't believe it's been over a year since Shovel Knight released -- time flies, right? Over the course of that year, I've beaten it on every conceivable platform outside of the PC edition, playing it over and over again, even ta...   read

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3

I haven't kept entirely up to date with One Piece, but I do read the summaries, and have caught most of the earlier arcs. It's a daunting task (the series has been running since 1997) in terms of the anime, and there's lots of filler involv...   read

Review: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair have been some of my favourite Vita games in recent years. A pair of murder mystery visual novels, the games melded puzzle solving, courtroom drama, and murdered school kids picking each ...   read

Review: Galak-Z: The Dimensional

There aren't enough mech games out there. I mean sure, I grew up with Mechwarrior, G-Nome, Armored Core, and Heavy Gear, among countless others over the years, but it's still not enough. It's never enough. While Galak-Z does have some ...   read

How the hell did Galak-Z hide a Gundam for three years?

Review: Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess

I really liked the original release of Deception IV. It was refreshing to see the series get another lease on life after taking a hiatus with Trapt all the way back in 2005, and newcomer Laegrinna fit right in. This time around wi...   read

Review: J-Stars Victory VS+

J-Stars Victory VS+ is a game that's mechanically light, heavy on fanservice volume but that only ever skims the surface of the characters it includes. If you want an anime brawler that focuses on the sheer volume of anime characters repres...   read

Based on the new demo, I have a good feeling about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Back in 2013, WayForward crowdfunded a new project by way of Kickstarter called Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the fourth game in the storied Shantae series. It managed to raise almost a million dollars in funding, which landed it on ...   read

Review: Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy

One of the very first PC games I ever played was a dungeon crawler. It was called MadMaze, a title released on 1989, playable on the Prodigy internet service -- yep, it was during the dialup era. While crawlers may not be one of my go-to ge...   read

Review: Not a Hero

Roll7 has received much adulation distilling skateboarding into pixel-based 2D fun with OlliOlli so it's not surprising that the team has been able to do the same with cover-based shooting. But OlliOlli's pixels belie the polygonal Tony Haw...   read

Review: Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters

Whenever the Vita's library expands, I always get unreasonably excited. Double excited if there's a new IP to add to the fold, because I'm seeing a lot of sequels these days. That's why I was ecstatic to hear that Toybox Games' Tokyo Twilig...   read

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed

Over the years, I've developed a cautionary approach to Compile Heart projects. As a fan of Eastern games in general I'm always receptive to the idea of them, but as a development studio, they don't always follow through as well as they sho...   read

Are you satisfied with the price you paid for your PlayStation Vita?

Review: Cosmophony

I had been lulled into a false sense of security. I finished the tutorial and the first level of Cosmophony with a perfect rating in about 15 minutes. "Four more levels of this?" I thought. "Child's play." Cut to an hour and a half later. S...   read
