I Wish Final Fantasy XV: Dog Simulator Was a Real Thing 

Today at Jump Festa 2015 in Chiba, Japan, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata showed off a bit of the upcoming game's unfinished urban environment. But instead of taking a tour of the city with Noctis and the gang, he instead showed us around through the eyes of a dog. It can pee on things, you guys. » 12/20/14 4:00am Saturday 4:00am

Richard’s Top Ten Games of 2014

As you read this list, you’re going to notice something about me: The thing I most care about in a game isn’t the gameplay, but the plot. I just love a well-told story.

M3’s Second Half Lacks What Made the Show Great: Endless Despair

A few months back, I reviewed the first half of M3: The Dark Metal and was impressed at the mecha anime’s neverending conga line of despair. And if there is one major flaw in the second half of the series, it’s that the conga line did, in fact, end. » 12/19/14 6:00am Friday 6:00am

Danganronpa Another Episode is a Dark Tale Where Children Kill Adults

Danganronpa has never been a "happy" series—as it centers around imprisoned high schoolers whose only means of escape is to kill a classmate and get away with it—but Zettai Zetsubo Shoujo: Danganronpa Another Episode takes it a step further by making its backdrop a city where children are mass murdering adults. » 12/16/14 8:00am Tuesday 8:00am

Co-op Titan Hunting Is Surprisingly Fun

Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind was released in Japan just over a year ago. When I looked at it, the biggest problem was that the majority of the game was designed for local co-op—and I lacked three friends interested in playing it. Luckily, in this year’s updated release, the co-op is now playable online. » 12/16/14 7:00am Tuesday 7:00am

The Attack on Titan Browser Game is as Terrible as the Mobile Game

Over the past year and a half, I have played a lot of Attack on Titan games. However, one I had yet to touch was the browser game Attack on Titan: The Wings of Counter Attack Online. And after how terrible the original phone version was, I can't say I was excited to try it out. I should have listened to my instincts. » 12/12/14 7:00am 12/12/14 7:00am

Yamato 2199's Movie Feels like a Second Season Pilot

On the heels of an incredibly disappointing re-cap movie, space opera epic Yamato 2199 returned to the silver screen this past weekend in Japan with Yamato 2199: Ark of the Stars—a film that is less a stand-alone story and more of a beginning for a whole new epic. » 12/12/14 4:30am 12/12/14 4:30am

The Last is the Naruto Love Story Fans Have Been Longing For

Not long ago, the Naruto manga ended its 15-year run. However, readers were quick to notice there was one story left to tell. Thus comes The Last: Naruto the Movie—not an out-of-continuity side story but a true missing tale that answers the most important question left by the ending of the manga. » 12/08/14 5:00am 12/08/14 5:00am

That Anime Crossover Fighter is Actually Pretty Darn Fun

Over the past few weeks, we've taken a detailed look at specific aspects of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, a fighting game where characters are pulled from across some of the most popular anime of the past few years to battle it out. And if nothing else, Fighting Climax certainly delivers on that premise. » 12/05/14 5:00am 12/05/14 5:00am
