Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available to play on Xbox One. I honestly don't even need to write anything else, since fans of the game will probably be immediately jumping back into the fray with the sombrero clad Raiden to take out...


Kamiya says NieR and its director saved Platinum Games

NieR: Automata invades Spelunker World in a cutesy crossover

There's already a patch for Vanquish's high-damage bug

Review: Vanquish (PC)

Here it is: Vanquish on Steam

One of Platinum's most beloved titles just made its PC debut. 2010's Vanquish just released on Steam mere minutes ago. We'll wait for those who need to leave to go queue up the download. Vanquish's Steam page lists the port at $20...


Bayonetta PC port clears 170,000 sales

Rumor has it that Microsoft is trying to salvage Scalebound

If you forgot (or are hearing it for the first time), the Microsoft and Platinum collaboration Scalebound was canceled several months ago. I mean, some of us kind of saw it coming in a way given the Xbox One's awful performance in Japa...


Review: NieR: Automata - 3C3C1D119440927

Anyone who has spoken with me in the past couple of months would know of my absolute adoration for NieR: Automata. In fact, it’s very likely that I’ve become unhealthily obsessed with it. To say that I regard it to be one of the...


(Update) A Vanquish PC port seems to lined up for May 25

NieR: Automata's costume and coliseum DLC is out today

The new NieR: Automata DLC looks good, but does it look $14 good? Something to mull over. Aiding you in that decision is today's launch trailer for 3C3C1D119440927 (amazingly, that's the name of the DLC; bless you Yoko Taro). The video rec...


That wild new NieR: Automata DLC is out next week

Japanese players are getting a batch of DLC for NieR: Automata on May 2, and hey, we are too! The DLC known as "3C3C1D119440927" (three costumes, three coliseums, one dream, and a year/date, apparently) will also see a Western release on Tu...


Vanquish might just be Platinum's next PC port

The surprise release of Bayonetta on PC was a wonderful gift -- both for returning fans and those who have yet to pulverize angels -- but it may only be the start. Someone hold me. I'm feeling faint! Earlier today, a small but conspicuous u...
