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,...

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...

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.

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.

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...

Orgarhythm Boogies onto the PlayStation Vita

Shake it, shake it

Patapon fans disappointed by the lack of tactical rhythm action on the PlayStation Vita may find themselves drawn to Orgarhythm, an incredibly difficult to spell real-time strategy title from Acquire. The game – available now from the North American PlayStation Store – encourages you to tap, slide and drag your finger to the...
