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 Overwatch and GoldenEye 64 mashup is just what I needed

There was a time where nearly every PC FPS had some form of a GoldenEye type mod, or some effort was made to create it. Before Halo swept the nation and gave us MLG, GoldenEye 64 was the gateway drug into the FPS genre for fo...   read

Japan's 1-2 Switch commercials look more fun than the game

It's going to be interesting to see how 1-2 Switch fares at launch. We all know that Zelda is going to have an insane attach rate -- I wouldn't be surprised if nearly everyone picked it up. But are people going to drop $50 on a mi...   read

Here's a way to farm gold in Nioh that's fast, easy, and lucrative

If there's one thing I could use more of in Nioh, it's gold. Gold is where it's at. It's true that you can play normally and boost your gold-grabbing efforts with stat-boosting equipment, your choice in guardian, or the achievement-esque t...   read

Super Bomberman R's intro is like a cheesy Saturday morning cartoon

Just several weeks before launch, we finally know the basic gist of the plot to Super Bomberman R, which is hitting the Switch as a launch title. The evil Emperor Bugler has decided to resurrect the Five Dastardly Bombers and rule the unive...   read

After seeing the Mega Man 2 Wily theme played on a Modulin, I want one

One of my favorite things to do on YouTube is watch those "split-screen" music videos the likes of which Smooth McGroove has recently made more famous on the video game side. Swedish band Wintergatan just put out an amazing video in the sam...   read

Bloodborne doesn't get much of a boost from the PS4 Pro's boost mode

When it comes to the PS4 Pro's upcoming "Boost Mode" that's now in beta testing, there's only one genre I really care about in terms of any sort of performance enhancement -- action games. If you can make a mascot platformer slightly more e...   read

FTL team reveals new strategy kaiju game Into the Breach

It feels like it's been forever since we last heard from Subset Games (or as you may know the studio, "those people who made FTL: Faster Than Light.") FTL Advanced Edition came out in 2014, and since then I just assumed Subset's employees t...   read

I call dibs on Ninjara for Nintendo Switch's Arms

Arms never really stood out to me until I started seeing more of it in action. I doubt it'll be the next big thing everyone is playing, but I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it, as it basically looks like Punch Out!! with a more multi...   read

This straightforward overview video nails what sets the Nintendo Switch apart

One of the most confusing things about the Switch is how it has three different "modes." The Wii U was the same way with two specifications, one of which (tablet only, or, "off-screen play") may not have been supported. It's the same thing ...   read

Dark Souls III's final DLC promises a 'conclusive ending,' new footage emerges

I try to place headers into Souls stories that are as generic as possible, avoiding spoilers when I can. Sometimes it's unavoidable, but the most important thing you can do? Not watch videos. That includes this Dark Souls III: The Ringed Ci...   read

Brazzers did a Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain porn parody

Metal Rear Solid: The Phantom Peen took a lot longer to come out than Brazzers' Final Fantasy XV porn parody, but it seems like a passion project. From the dick-sucking Snake Eater reference to Boss and Hushy's accurate costuming to the iDr...   read

The official Geralt cosplayer lent his talents to this Witcher short film

We've posted about Ben Schamma several times in the past, mostly because he is Geralt, from The Witcher series, in real life. No I mean figuratively and literally, as CD Projekt Red has him contracted as the official Geralt cosplayer at sev...   read

Super Mario Odyssey becomes Nintendo's most-viewed game trailer ever
