Tokyo Tattoo Girls leans in on Tokyo, Tattoos, and Girls

Holy crap, Taiko no Tatsujin is getting an English release

Hell must be feeling a little chilly today, because the boys are back in town. By "boys", I am referring to Katsu and Don, the cutesy drum brothers that herald Bandai Namco's Taiko no Tatsujin rhythm game franchise. They're here to bri...

You can watch a ton of anime next week on Twitch

I still remember the days when Twitch was adamantly not the streaming service for you if you wanted to stream something other than a videogame. It wasn't even that long ago, all things considered. But that's all over now, because we're...

Early Access Review: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

"Utawarerumono" is a bit of a mouthful, even for folks who can speak Japanese, and probably even more so for those who can't. In fact, mispronouncing the title as "Underwater Ray Romano" was a big meme of the mid-2000s for a certain segment...
