Your First Look at Yakuza 6 on PS4 Is Impressive

Gangster's paradise

Yakuza 6 is being built exclusively for the PlayStation 4, and boy does it show in this first ever video. SEGA debuted the footage during a NicoNico livestream yesterday, and it shows Japanese actor Beat Takeshi's character in all of his new-gen glory. The facial modelling has always been good in the Yakuza games, but this is...

Two New Yakuza Titles Dragon Punch PS4

Kiryu's coming

Start those localisation petitions, as SEGA has announced two new Yakuza titles for the PlayStation 4.

Shenmue III Causes Spike in Dreamcast Sales

Yu did it

Let's not beat around the bush: Sony kind of killed the Dreamcast. Sure, years of atrocious decisions ultimately saw SEGA pull out of the hardware race, but few could deny that the looming juggernaut otherwise known as the PlayStation 2 put the final nail in the underappreciated console's coffin. But with the announcement of Shenmue III...

Yakuza 5 May Be the Last PS3 Exclusive You Must Have

Let's all go to Kamurocho

We know that a lot of you love your PlayStation 3, but there's no doubt that the device is on its way out. Several franchises are still launching simultaneously on the last-gen system and the PlayStation 4, of course, but we doubt that there'll be many more exclusives for the machine moving forwards. As such, Yakuza 5 may...

Review: Tembo the Badass Elephant (PS4)

Tembo the Badass Elephant (PS4)

Peanut stutter

Tembo the Badass Elephant should have been ten tons of fun, but instead it's a steaming pile of missed opportunity. This is Pokémon developer Game Freak's first PlayStation release since surgeon simulation Click Medic deployed in Japan over 15 years ago, and so it carries the weight of industry intrigue for that reason alone. But...

Sonic's New Awful Friend: Shia LaBeouf

Aaron Webber antics, we presume

Ever since public relations guy Aaron Webber has returned to SEGA, Sonic the Hedgehog's social media accounts have played host to a selection of memes, self-aimed jokes, and, now, even a video of some of Shia LaBeouf's infamous motivation. Keep in mind that this was posted on the official Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube...

SEGA: We Want to Win Back Gamers' Trust

Quality over quantity

SEGA's reputation as a game publisher has been all but completely tarnished over the past ten or so years, thanks to a slew of lacklustre Sonic the Hedgehog sequels and an astoundingly poor job at importing Japanese hits to the Western market. The company seems to be trying to turn things around, though. In an interview with...

Yakuza 5 Busting Bad Guys on PS3 in Fall 2015

King Kazuma

Yakuza 5 is a massive game that's going to take time to translate, but Sony hasn't forgotten that it promised to bring the release overseas. While the PlayStation 3 may be starting to feel like old news these days, we're still looking forward to continuing Kazuma Kiryu's story – even if we will have to dust off the aging machine...

First Impressions: How Does Pokémon Maker Game Freak's PS4 Debut Fare?

How Does Pokémon  Maker Game Freak's PS4 Debut Fare?

We take Tembo the Badass Elephant for a ride

Side-scrollers are dime a dozen in this current digital age. The old-school genre may have fallen out of favour following the PSone's introduction of new-fangled polygons, but the vibrant indie development scene has ensured that 2D platformers are fashionable again – even if they tend to rival Early...

SEGA Classics to Receive Vinyl Soundtracks

What year is it?

SEGA smashes Shenmue and Streets of Rage are set to receive special edition vinyl soundtracks this September – and just so you don't panic, you're definitely still reading this in 2015. London-based record label Data Discs will be handling the uber-limited LPs. We imagine that the firm's based in Shoreditch and only hires...
