Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair Brings Buggy Slideshows to PS4

EDF! EDF! EDF!

Earth Defense Force's eternal appeal will always be its less-than-stellar presentation. We're not sure whether we find XSEED Games' promise of better performance in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 instalment Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair appealing or not, then – but having read similar pledges for previous...

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Will Raise Eyebrows in the West on PS4, Vita

Maintain eye contact

XSEED is busting a gut bringing some of the more obscure PlayStation 4 and Vita titles to the West, and its effort looks set to pay off this winter with some ridiculous, er, busts. Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is sure to have parts of the enthusiast press up in arms as it pits scantily clad female ninja warriors up against...

It's Fine to Be Fashionably Late to Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Washin' your hair

We don't know about you, but as this author got older, the concept of 'fashionably late' got taken to extremes. Events would be scheduled for, say, 19:00PM – but you were a jerk if you showed up any earlier than 22:00PM. Growing up is pretty dumb, huh? Having said that, such tactics may come in handy when it comes to Corpse Party...

Review: Brandish: The Dark Revenant (PlayStation Portable)

Brandish: The Dark Revenant (PlayStation Portable)

Resurrect an old friend

Brandish: The Dark Revenant was originally released on the Super Nintendo in 1991. Despite its rocky reception, it was eventually ported to the PlayStation Portable in 2009 in Japan. And, after six years, it's finally travelled overseas, with a full English localisation. The big question is: has it been worth the wait? The...

Corpse Party: Blood Drive Hops on the Highway to Hell

XSEED registers domain for Vita exclusive

There may be a dearth of big budget blockbusters on the PlayStation Vita right now, but there are bags of indie titles and quirky Japanese curios. Corpse Party is one franchise that blossomed into popularity towards the end of the PlayStation Portable's life, and it looks like its Vita exclusive successor,...

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation 4)

Take off your pants and jacket

Welcome back to the land of the undead and undressed, where you are a modern day vampire roaming the streets of Akihabara, stripping others of their finest threads. Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed has been doing the rounds on Sony’s systems for a while now, finally arriving on the PlayStation 4 following a...

Review: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Well rounded

First impressions count for a lot in this fickle industry. Whether it's art style, design choices, or DLC policies, it's surprisingly easy to lose all interest in a game that doesn't initially match up to your personal preferences. For Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, this is a big problem, as from the word go, you're bombarded by big,...

News: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Goes for the Jugular Next Month

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Goes for the Jugular Next Month

Bursting with goodness

You’ll find more wobbling in PlayStation Vita exclusive Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus’ launch trailer than on a plate of jelly, but beneath all of the titillation appears to be an amusing action game. The spiritual successor to the somewhat divisive side scroller Senran Kagura Burst, this portable escapade appears to share...

Review: Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation Vita)

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation Vita)

Undressed to kill

To describe Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed as a simple action role-playing game would do it a disservice – a bit like describing a vampire as a mere blood gulper. The aforementioned nocturnal beast has gone through several iterations over the years, ranging from fear inducing monsters through to promiscuous teenagers –...

Stripping Sim Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed Exposes Itself on PS4 This Fall

Hot in here

The heat remains utterly inescapable here in the UK, which means that plenty of skin and bad tattoos are on display. Of course, the poor Synthisters – the vampirish foes from stripping simulator Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed – have no choice but to remain covered up, as the sunlight is their one true rival in the world...

This PS3 and Vita Game Allows You to Strip Strangers to Their Underwear

XSEED exposing strange stripping game

Ripping the clothes off anyone in public may be enough to land you with a pretty severe sexual assault charge, but in upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita title Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, you can at least tell the police that you’re actually saving the planet. XSEED has announced that the cult Acquire...

Review: Killer Is Dead (PlayStation 3)

Killer Is Dead (PlayStation 3)

Crud on the moon

Killer Is Dead is unashamedly stupid. Executive producer Goichi Suda – better known by his nickname Suda51 – has made a living out of his bonkers plots and premises, but the latest product to drop off Grasshopper Manufacture’s production line takes the nonsense of No More Heroes and kits it out in a straitjacket. This is a...

Duh, Of Course Juliet Starling Is Going to Be in Killer Is Dead

Girl power

Killer Is Dead hero Mondo Zappa will have yet another reason to pull out his controversial gigolo glasses this year, as Lollipop Chainsaw protagonist Juliet Starling is set to make an appearance in the game. The bright-eyed cheerleader will flash her pom-poms at some point during the title’s over-the-top campaign, but it’s not yet...

Bundled with a bevy of goodies

Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest eyebrow-raising endeavour Killer Is Dead will flirt with store shelves on 27th August in North America, publisher XSEED Games has announced. All launch editions of the bloodthirsty outing will be bundled with an 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack featuring 25 songs produced by...

Titillating Killer Is Dead Footage Applies Its Beer Goggles

Should have gone to Specsavers

Killer Is Dead looks poised to give Yakuza’s table tennis mini-game a run for its money in the inappropriate gameplay stakes. This brand new clip – completely in Japanese – shows protagonist Mondo Zappa seemingly accumulating points by staring at an aesthetically pleasing female’s assets. After eyeing the...

Kadokawa Games Undresses Titillating Killer Is Dead Trailer

Making love to the camera

If you figured that Mondo Zappa’s glasses were just for fashion, you were wrong. Judging by this trailer, the Killer Is Dead protagonist can use the optical enhancers to see through the (already skimpy) clothes of his female associates. The functionality sounds great if you’re aiming to keep tabs on the latest underwear...

Not content with this morning’s Killer Is Dead confirmation, XSEED Games has announced that it will be bringing Valhalla Knights 3 to North America this Fall. The customisable PlayStation Vita exclusive will allow you to select from a list of 21 different jobs and seven races to create the perfect party. We fancy building an army...
