No more waiting; VR is finally here. Except we are still waiting – waiting for some games that we’d really like to play with our new toys. The Rift and Vive both have some novel launch experiences, but they are a far cry from the system-selling titles that gamers are used to seeing year-in...

Our TGS Localization Wish List
on September 20, 2014 at 12:00 PM
The hardest part about visiting Tokyo Game Show is seeing tons of games that are only slated for release in Japan. Of course that doesn't mean these games won't eventually come to the West. In fact, most the time with big titles, it's pretty obvious that a North American announcement is in...

Tokyo Game Show opened its doors to the press today and we were right there to capture the action. Plenty of interesting artifacts, cosplayers, and games were on display.

Why Ace Attorney’s Pearl Deserves a Spin-off
on August 10, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Pearl Fey is one of the strongest characters from the Ace Attorney series, and I’ve often wondered why she's never been given her own spin-off. Not only is Pearl absolutely adorable, but she has an intriguing family history that could drive a compelling mystery. Pearl deserves to be the star...

Top 10 Import-Only Oddities
on August 18, 2011 at 05:30 PM
Not every game makes its way to North America. In many cases, this is understandable; train simulators and anime dating games wouldn’t find the same audience over here as they do overseas. But what about the games that seem like a good fit? Some of them are installments in well-known series, while...
