Review: Okamiden

Okami is a beloved cult classic, but the game failed to meet sales expectations when it was first released on the PS2 back in 2006. Capcom recently stated that they believe that the game undersold because it was released so closely to the l...

Okamiden face mug is absolutely too much

Seriously, I can't take the cute anymore! Capcom has gone too far. As if the plushy wasn't bad enough, now there's a special mug that will make every coffee break far too adorable for its own good. It features the ever-snorgable face o...

TGS: Hands-on with the technically awesome Okamiden

I'm a dick. I've had so many opportunities to play Okamiden this year, but I've yet to get to it. Part of that is because playing a DS game on a big event's show floor is pretty painful. With flashing lights and cosplay and giant screens al...

TGS: Three minutes of Okamiden goodness, new images

Okamiden gameplay footage is predictably adorable

Capcom released this gameplay footage of Okamiden yesterday and it's pretty much the cutest thing I've seen this week. Chibiterasu is just so pudgy and I love watching him scamper around. The video shows a little bit of the game's bru...

Puppies and J-Pop combine in this Okamiden trailer

I felt bad for all the DS games at E3 2010, especially Okamiden. How could any DS title possibly follow the unveiling of the 3DS? It just wasn't fair. I hope that Okami fans (all 200,000 or so of you) are still willing to buy Okamiden, des...

Adorable and terrifying Okamiden papercraft

DO WANT this Okamiden plush Chibiterasu

My fiancée and I are rarely go to bed at the same time. I usually roll in there about ten or twelve hours after she does because of our work schedules. That's not really a problem, except that she's taken to curling up with my good p...

E3 10: Redefining religious games with El Shaddai

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is far from the religious games of old, nor does it have anything to do with the Amy Grant song of the same name. And I should know, as growing up in a religious household, I was more than familiar wit...

Okamiden producer: Not a sequel, a 'spiritual successor'

With Clover studios having disbanded, some thought they'd never see a proper follow up to its 2006 PlayStation 2 classic, Ōkami. Ōkamiden, Capcom's upcoming Nintendo DS title set in the Ōkami universe, may just be what gamers...

No current plans for iPhone/iPad versions of Okamiden

Ōkamiden seems like the perfect fit for the Nintendo DS, with its "Celestial Brush" mechanic that has players using the stylus to draw strokes in the game world to affect the environment and combat. It would also, many would imagine, b...

Ep. 4 of The Journalism Show once again lacks journalism

New Okamiden trailer is ZOMG SO CUTE!

So far, Capcom has been rather stingy when it comes to showing footage of Okami sequel Okamiden in action. Fortunately, that miserly attitude has been made up for with a nice three-minute trailer that looks absolutely bloody gorgeous. And ...

Okami Vans will make your jaw drop

TGS 09: Prepare your envy for this sweet Okamiden fan
