Persona 5's swimsuit DLC will be free, rest of add-ons scheduled

So Atlus has decided to share the DLC schedule for the western release of Persona 5, and you know what? It's pretty tame by recent JRPG standards rife with extra scenarios and characters and the like -- basically everything is cosmetic. The...   read

Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...   read

PSA: You can grab Shovel Knight 33% off before Specter of Torment launches

The latest Shovel Knight expansion is just about ready to launch. While it will be a timed Switch exclusive for around a month, that doesn't mean you have to wait on buying the main title. If you're interested in Specter of Torment, why not...   read

Sony pulls off a pretty solid month of PS Plus games for March

That leak from a few days ago was correct! Tearaway Unfolded and Disc Jam will be headlining the free games on offer for PS Plus members this month. While I've never heard of Disc Jam, I did 100% the Vita version of Tearaway and really enjo...   read

Dead Space 3 wasn't originally designed for microtransactions

For all intents and purposes, Dead Space 3 is a pretty big failure. It eschewed the ideas that the first two games were building on and contained all of the worst bits of the modern games industry. There was a microtransaction-laden system ...   read

Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Watching the original Berserk anime for the first time had a profound impact on me. I had seen bleak or otherwise violent films like Starship Troopers before as a youngster, but gazing upon Berserk was the first time I had felt li...   read

PlayStation Network is holding an action-themed Flash Sale

When I think of "action games," the first thing to pop into my mind is not La-Mulana EX. But that beast of a platforming adventure title is among this weekend's PlayStation Network Flash Sale listings in North America, and it's good. If you...   read

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

Get a look at the first 15 minutes of Toukiden 2

Toukiden 2 arrived in Japan in July of 2016, but given its niche premise of fighting oni during the Meiji era of Japan, it makes perfect sense that it's been held until "spring 2017" for the west. Koei Tecmo gave me the opportunity to test ...   read

This ain't no fakie: Skate 3 got added to EA Access today

The Good About-Video Games Writer in me says that I should pack this standard fare news post full of cool skateboarding terms like kickflip, grind, and elbow pads. Doing so demonstrates a familiarity with both video games and skateboar...   read

If you want to play Dark Souls 2 again, the time is at hand

Dark Souls games are best experienced in the moment. Those first few months of release when the player base is active, mysteries abound, and perilous invaders lurk around every corner. Seeing the phantoms of other players, the helpful (and ...   read

Review: Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea

PlayStation Plus' lineup for February is pretty decent

For a couple of months now, Microsoft has been outdoing Sony on the front of free games for subscribers. While the February lineup for Xbox Live Gold is decent, Sony actually managed to pull out the stops and provide a better month for its ...   read

This PSN sale is for Rockstar games, anime, and PlayStation VR

The PlayStation Store is running three sales concurrently, none of them really thematically attached to one another. That's perfectly fine because it means there are three chances that something's going to appeal to your sense of style. Tho...   read

Yakuza 0 will be getting some free DLC next month

Yakuza 0 is really great. It may possibly be the best Yakuza game released in the West thus far, but there was one strange omission: unlockable costumes. In some of the previous Yakuza titles, beating the game allowed you to select costumes...   read

Review in Progress: Tales of Berseria

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a newcomer to Bandai Namco's Tales series. In the past, I've only played small snippets of both Tales of Xilla 2 and Tales of Hearts R, and for one reason or another, have yet to sink my teeth i...   read

There's an 'Under $5' PlayStation Network Flash Sale

At first glance, this weekend's North American PlayStation Network Flash Sale might seem lackluster. Admittedly, some of these games are showing their age. But as far as pricing, everything's $5 and under, so unlike some of the recent sales...   read

Review: Yakuza 0

Japan in the '80s was a wonderful time for business owners. The yen was exploding in value and money was flowing like water. If you were involved in any kind of business, legit or not, you were basically so wealthy that you could blow your ...   read

That old school pair of Mega Man fighting games hits the PS3 in Japan

I used to play hours of Rockman: The Power Battle and Rockman 2: The Power Fighters with a good friend of mine. As two of the only co-op (or two player for that matter) Mega Man games ever made, this lesser known fighting game ser...   read

Indie PS3/Vita action game Malicious resurrected on PS4

Back in 2012 (or 2010 if you're in Japan), Malicious kind of came and went. I knew a few people who were really into it given the relative drought of action games these days (at least, relative to the PS2 and beginning of the PS3 eras), but...   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

Final Fantasy XIV is getting a XV collab, and I hope it involves big jackets
