Shooting Oshimen in the Face ~ Namco Bandai’s Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition

Shooting Oshimen in the Face ~ Namco Bandai’s Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition
Mayuyu drops. Takamina is next, falling uselessly in her gore stained uniform. Yet even as they fall, you can see Yukirin stumbling forward, arms outstretched. Your heart does not falter. Nor does your aim. You raise your gun—and heal them with a clever vaccine for zombification that also awards the chance of shooting your oshimen at point blank range. Such is the presence of Sailor Zombie: AKB48 Arcade Edition, a new cabinet from Namco Bandai due... 

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Review

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Review
The Dragon Ball franchise set the standard for what a Shonen battle anime should be, and the joyous emotions we can get from games which derive from those series. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the latest offering in the Dragon Ball video game line-up. Battle of Z marks a new direction for the franchise, after a long relationship with Spike ended following its merger with Chunsoft. Battle of Z is the first Dragon Ball game developed by Artdink.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Review

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Review
I’ll start this review with a confession. I’ve never owned a Tekken game. I’ve maybe played a round or two here and there, but never really sat down with the series. I’m in the same situation as many other gamers, Nintendo centric for a good number of years meaning I never had access to the series. With the Wii U, Namco Bandai have finally brought the series to a Nintendo console with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and it’s... 

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review
There are games that focus on telling a carefully crafted and emotionally impactful story, taking us across the world making friends and defeating those who risk harming the ones we love. Tank! Tank!

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Preview
At this weekend’s MCM Expo I was able to get my hands on an updated build of the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I’ve played through the arcade mode of the game, as well as the new Mushroom Mode, both of which are looking considerably better than they were when we covered them last month. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 played identically to the versions on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It could be played either on the Gamepad screen or the...
