You Better Hope SEGA Publishes Persona 5 in Europe, 'Cause NIS America Won't Be

Uh oh

Persona 5 is probably getting a Japanese release date next month, but the painful wait for any kind of confirmation of a European launch looks set to continue.

Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Well in, Welkin

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is a fine example of a game that'll always look bloody lovely because of its art style.

Console Wars - A Sony, Nintendo, and SEGA Love Triangle

Serious business

Console wars have a bad name. We're not condoning the craziness that occurs on social media and message boards from time to time, but there's a competitive edge to any industry that can be entertaining when viewed from the inside – and video games are no different. Console Wars, a fly-on-the-wall insight into the skirmish for...

We're Not Sure What to Think of Valkyria: Azure Revolution on PS4

It's different, we suppose

Valkyria Chronicles must have done something right, because it got editor Sammy Barker to actually play a strategy game.

Yakuza 6 Drags the Series Kicking and Screaming into 2016

Feeling the heat
