Preview: Hatsune Miku Project DIVA F has precision issues

Here's a quick lesson on Japanese pop culture: Yamaha sells a software called Vocaloid, which provides the digitized voice of a singer and allows users to incorporate it into their own music productions. Each singer is represented by an ani...

Avengers Chronicles features the best pinball tables yet

There are two things in this world that consistently remain on my top-ten of all-time favorite things ever: Pinball and The Avengers. The fact that those two things are coming together in not only one, but four tables as part of the Avenger...

Preview: Assassin's Creed III Liberation is the real deal

As far as I'm concerned, there hasn't really been a portable Assassin's Creed worth playing. Despite the release of three story-based handheld games -- only one less than the console releases -- they have contributed nothing of value to the...

E3: Unchained Blades is an RPG for the hardcore

I doubt it surprises anyone, but my excitement for Unchained Blades stems from my love of the game’s soundtrack, which was released last year. While it features a main theme by Nobuo Uematsu that sounds a lot like Iron Chef, the true ...

E3: Sly's Vita debut pickpocketed my heart

When I heard the long-awaited next-gen Sly Cooper sequel would be put in the hands of Sanzaru Games, I lost all interest. Considering Sly 1 & 2 are two of my favorite games, that's a lot of interest to lose. But, what do you expect when...

E3: Orgarhythm is hard to explain, but fun to play

Orgarhythm is the most difficult game I’ve ever tried to explain. In fact, XSEED had a hard time explaining it to me. It wasn’t until I played it that I was fully able to understand what it was all about. A hybrid between real-t...

E3: Hands-on with Zone of the Enders HD

Thanks to my semi-adolescent brain, mech battles are easily some of the most awesome of which I can conceive. The notion of pitting giant robots with lasers, machine guns, and jets against one another is at the top of my list for video...

Preview: When Vikings Attack

Upcoming PS3 and Vita title When Vikings Attack is nothing like what you'd picture in your head from the name. While there's vikings in it, it really has little to do with the bearded Norse explorers or their funny little horned hats. In fa...

Preview: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Batman's back (in LEGO form) and he brought his friends along for sequel in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Not just Robin, though. Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are among the blocky heroes, and The Joker and Lex Luthor have...

Preview: Quelling the forces of darkness with Orgarhythm

Last week, Jonathan Holmes talked about a new advertisement for Orgarhythm, a combination rhythm and real-time strategy game he likened to a cross between Pikmin and Space Channel 5. I’m inclined to throw a Patapon comparison in there...

Ragnarok Odyssey made quite a name for itself and since the February release in Japan, it has become one of the fastest selling games on the PlayStation Vita. Now, XSEED has taken it upon themselves to publish the game for North American re...

Preview: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Few developers have a large enough catalog of praised franchises that they can make entire games featuring a variety of their own iconic characters. Nintendo is obviously the leading company that has made a habit of doing this regularly, a...

Resistance: Burning Skies is ready to set the Vita ablaze

With a relatively thin PlayStation 3 launch line-up, Resistance: Fall of Man was a saving grace for early adopters. Almost six years later, the Resistance franchise has gone on to be a critical mainstay for Sony's systems. With Insomniac no...

Preview: Street Fighter x Tekken (Vita)

With Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the PlayStation Vita proved itself as an ideal portable platform for fighting game ports. Capcom is back again with another portable fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken, set to release later this year. At a p...

Preview: Conquer China on the go in Dynasty Warriors Next

I assume I'm not alone in lacking the ability to tell the difference between Dynasty Warriors games (or at least, between the ones of a particular console generation). I've played, or watched friends play, DW6 and DW7, but from those experi...

Preview: Slicing samurai in Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

In case you were wondering, that silver line in the right half of the header image above is Ryu Hayabusa's katana. It's a long samurai sword, and I couldn't fit all of it into the picture. That sleek blade is the last thing that many of Ryu...

Preview: Street Fighter X Tekken through a noob's eyes

A friend once told me he thought fighting games had cool characters. After he wiped the blood from his head, he quickly apologized to me and said, "Perhaps I should rethink that statement." Then miraculously, out of a nearby TV jumped Roger...

Preview: Mortal Kombat Vita has more ways to Finish Him

The last half of this generation has been extremely kind to fighting games. Street Fighter IV returned the series to form, newcomers joined the fray with BlazBlue, and my personal favorite fighting franchise experienced a much needed rebirt...

Preview: The roads are empty in Ridge Racer for PS Vita

Another PlayStation machine is about to launch, and with it comes another Ridge Racer, of course. The new installment for PlayStation Vita is somewhat of an oddity. I can't remember a time when my opinion of a game had ever been influenced ...

Little Deviants is cute and cuddly fun times

One of the launch titles accompanying the PlayStation Vita is Little Deviants, a cute, cuddly ensemble of mini-games that are designed to showcase the new handheld's features. Ranging from rear-touch functionality to Sixaxis controls, Littl...

Modnation Racers: Road Trip is better with touch controls

I am not a fan of motion gaming, waggle, touch screens, or other so-called "casual controls." It's not that I write them off the moment I see them. I just have yet to see a game that uses those control options to make the experience better ...

Preview: Hustle Kings (PlayStation Vita)

Developed by the small, UK based VooFoo Studio, Hustle Kings released on PlayStation Network in early 2010, receiving a positive review from us. Though I didn’t play that release, I’ve always been a bit of a pool fan and I have ...
