Many gamers who played King’s Field on the ole PS1 remembered how tough, cumbersome, and in hindsight ancient the game was. For some odd reason, it was well-received in Japan but villified elsewhere. Perhaps it’s the fascination with tough games, as evident with Shiren The Wanderer and Etrian Odyssey, but From Software decided to bring [...]

Ahh…the mohawk, no other personal grooming choice says ‘I’m a bit unstable’ like shaving the hair off both sides of your head and leaving a landing strip down the middle, reminiscent of many a classy lady’s nether regions.
This week, with the general release of the Slayer class in Warhammer Online, I revisit some of gaming [...]
Just last week and a half, I manage to snag myself a copy of Sega’s fourth game of the Ryu Ga Gotoku series (let’s just call it Yakuza 3) which, to be frank, sold a s***load of copies in its native Japan. Outside in the English-speaking realm? Not so much. As the first two Yakuza [...]
GAX Point returns with a couple of new features, better video quality, better direction, more games, more guests…think of this as Season 2 if you want. This episode: Halo Wars, the much anticipated evolution of the Halo series into a strategy game. You’ve read our Hands-on Preview online and you will be able to check [...]
So Madworld is out for the Wii, and it seems to hearken back to the good old days when one man just goes out of his way to beat the crap out of anyone or anything in his way. Except Madworld is a bloodier and Frank Miller (pre-All Star Batman & Robin insane) vision of [...]

Still, I do sometimes get the feeling that all this uber technology, what with the million DPI lasers and teflon coated bases, is making life too easy. Sometimes, I yearn [...]
Nineteen hours have passed, and I’m on the second disc as I traverse to yet another planet searching to co-exist with other species or help out underdeveloped planets, with a dash of time-traveling to boot. That is the gist of Star Ocean 4; a fine cocktail of Star Trek and standard anime conventions and extravagant [...]
So, we know what’s coming up in the next few days: Resident Evil 5. The fifth game in the series that coined the term “survival horror” is said to be the last game to cap off the series according to one Jun Takeuchi, the esteemed producer of the game. Hence the title “Dead Last”. Throughout [...]
We’ve just gotten our copy of Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers, a title I confess to having been wetting myself with anticipation over since I heard it was coming in. Expectations were high when I popped the game disc in, but fortunately it delivers – at least in terms of having gratuitous Bikini Cowgirl Zombie Slaying [...]
Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher’s Bay was one of the very few movie license games that ended up as an actually good gaming experience. Riddick himself is charismatic, and the actual stealth and killing bits are handled pretty well. So after the news was announced that a remake was in the works by the [...]
