Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 headed to North America with prior DLC included

Looks like someone heard me when I pointed out that the Steam release of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator would not come with the previously released DLC, or at least I like to think that. In any case the newest version of Guilty Gear Xr...   read

Review: Double Dragon IV

Double Dragon II NES was a staple in my household. I convinced just about every person I knew to take at least one run at it, and depending on their prowess, they'd either get bored after the first stage or rage at the final boss into ...   read

New Double Dragon IV trailer sets up the story

Double Dragon IV is coming out in a few days! I didn't realize how close we were to the launch date, but I'm not so sure I'm going to even pick this up. Having couch co-op is a big plus, but the lack of online co-op definitely hurts. The PS...   read

Double Dragon IV will have three modes, playable boss characters

I've been heavily preparing for Double Dragon IV by playing previous games in the series, and at the moment I've just completed the trilogy. While some say that it looks uninspired or even "lazy," I'm jazzed to try it out having spent hundr...   read

There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Not to talk too negatively about fighting games and their constant updates, but this is one of the reasons why I find it hard to get truly invested in any one particular series. Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have so many updates, sequels, and DL...   read

Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator comes to Steam, but you have to buy the DLC again

I confess: I have never played a Guilty Gear game. The closest I have gotten is playing the Persona 4 Arena games which is apparently a more casualized version of Guilty Gear or perhaps closer to Blazblue. The latest entry, G...   read

Review: BlazBlue: Central Fiction

It's been tough for me to get into BlazBlue. My first ever Arc System Works fighter was the original Guilty Gear, and I've been a believer ever since. When BlazBlue rolled around 10 years later a lot of my crew was already investe...   read

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...   read

BlazBlue: Central Fiction, which is not a visual novel, launches soon in the west

Arc System Works is no stranger to visual novels based on their universes, so it's a bit confusing to most people when you tell them that BlazBlue: Central Fiction exists. It is, indeed, the next fully-fledged BlazBlue fighting game wi...   read

Review: River City: Tokyo Rumble

River City Ransom was probably one of the best, most overlooked games on the NES, but remains a favorite for those who've played it since its release back in 1989. Combining a traditional beat-'em-up with the economy and stat growth of...   read

BlazBlue: Central Fiction is getting a Nendoroid-ridden special edition
