    Yakuza Kiwami Launches Today

    Yakuza Kiwami is out today in North America for the PlayStation 4. Priced at $29.99 (USD), the game is an "extreme" remake of the original Yakuza game from the PlayStation 2.
    Being retold in Kiwami is the nascent character arc for Yakuza - the game begins with series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu getting sent to prison for the murder of his family patriarch (which he didn't commit). To make matters worse, during the 10 years of his imprisonment, not only does Kiryu's clan expel him from

    Earlier today, ArenaNet released their second developer diary for Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire. As the title would indicate, this particular developer diary decided to focus on a major addition to the series, mounts. Sure, you'll be able to move around on them, but they are so much more than that.
    It’s All about the Mounts During testing, we found that manually dismounting to attack foes felt clunky and bad. We developed engage skills—offensive skills that allow your mounts to en

    Bandai Namco just revealed that Dragon Ball FighterZ will include Super Saiyan Gold Super Saiyan (SSGSS) form of Goku and Vegeta. Really? You simply double up on the "Super Saiyan" for the form? That's incredibly unoriginal and frankly, it's just a bit lazy. Anyway, here's a Super trailer of the Super Saiyan Gold Super Saiyan Super Gold Saiyan Super Gold Super Saiyan Gold form. The game will be out for the PC, PS4, and XB1 in early 2018. SSGSS Goku and Vegeta are an early unlock for ...

  • Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Do It For Her.

    Yakuza Kiwami is an updated remake of the original Yakuza title, a game that was originally released back in 2006 in North America for the PlayStation 2. Right out of the gate, Kiwami can and should be considered more than just a simple remake. It feels more like an extension of the fantastic Yakuza 0 that came to North America earlier this year and less like a game that came out nearly ten years ago. Yakuza Kiwami delivers updated assets, visuals, and even completely...

  • Poll: How do You Feel About Xbox Going Multi-Platform?
    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
