Review: Castle of Shikigami

I sort of remember the long and convoluted history of the first Castle of Shikigami game, but I had to stare at a few sources for several minutes just to be sure I had it right. Years back, a publisher named XS Games licensed Gunbird a...   read

Polybius is heading to PC

Earlier this month, Polybius finally stopped being an urban legend and became a game on PS4. While there is more than likely not an actual arcade cabinet that drove people insane, the story behind the legend is a cool bit of urban mythology...   read

Review: DoDonPachi Resurrection
