Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is one of the most highly regarded real-time strategy titles in PC gaming, spanning two games with multiple expansions, the franchise is a treasure. However, since Relic Entertainment, the developers of Dawn of War, were sold to SEGA following the THQ bankruptcy, fans have worried that we may never see a return to the franchise.
This fear was somewhat averted by SEGA registering a domain for Dawn of War 3, and releasing new content for Dawn of War II: Retribution in the form of the Necron Overlord for the Last Stand game mode. However, today suspicions of a franchise revival are sure to return. On its official Twitter account and on the [...]

Well, at this point, you’re either a Hatsune Miku person or you’re not. The above image goes a long way in determining whether or not Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX for the Nintendo 3DS is your jam or not. Do you like Vocaloid music? Do you find the Nendodroid-style chibi characters far too “kawaii” to ignore? Do I sound like a tool for putting kawaii in quotes? If all of the above answers are a definitive “Yes!” [...]

Fans of the Yakuza series spoke loud and clear a few years back at E3 2013. Gio Corsi, Director of Third Party Production at Sony Computer Entertainment, asked for the games they most wanted to see in the West. Yakuza 5 was at the top of the list and, after much denial and backpedaling, the dream is alive and well with a localized release of Yakuza 5 on PS3. Gio sat down with Yakuza series general director Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Masayoshi Yokoyama for the first of a 3 part interview series regarding the game, its five cities, multiple protagonists and more.
Corsi starts off with the origins of the concept and just what drove the two to craft the series. The games, [...]
This week it is Sonic’s Birthday, and while he’s not been the most popular of game characters in recent times, there’s still some life left in him. PSN is having both a Sonic and a 2K sale. We hope you enjoy this week’s picks for Gaming on a Budget.
The first game this week portrayed a different side of military combat, showcasing the effects of war, on both a psychological level and an economic one. Spec Ops: The Line tells the story of Delta force, sent into a bad situation from the very get go. Dubai is in ruins, thousands have been murdered and their job is to find and help as many survivors as they can. Is that their only reason for being [...]
The first in what SEGA/Creative Assembly assures is a trilogy of standalone releases “accompanied by additional content” can be seen here with the cinematic trailer announcing the arrival of Total War: WARHAMMER. The deal, brokered back in 2012, between Creative Assembly and Games Workshop means that we’re going to see a lot more of the Warhammer fantasy universe in the future.
So this trailer was jam packed with things to speculate on but, thankfully, SEGA offered confirmation on playable factions to Videogamer. Orcs and Goblins, Dwarves, and the Vampire Counts are the game’s core trio. It does, however, seem a bit strange that the Empire, [...]
At a press conference held early today at their Tokyo headquarters, the AGES Corporation unveiled a new portable gaming system meant to compete with the likes of the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. “We’re really excited about throwing our hat into the portable ring,” said a public spokesman for AGES. Randolph Carter said of their newest product, which possesses a surface so black that it absorbs all known wavelengths of light and sound. “We know that Nintendo has a been the leader in the field for years, but we really think we’ve got a winner on our hands that may finally upset not only the handheld gaming market but all of reality as we know [...]

Hatsune Miku —a true phenomenon inside her native land of Japan— has sold millions of albums and filled arenas with adoring fans. She isn’t a flesh and blood diva, though. Hatsune Miku is a completely digital creation accompanied by a vocaloid program maintained and manufactured by a veritable brain trust of Japanese pop and rock talent. Western audiences have only recently caught on to the [...]
Developer: Platinum Games Publisher: Nintendo Release Date: October 24, 2014 Platforms: Wii U Reviewed On: Wii U
Bayonetta 2, the once dead-in-the-water sequel to Platinum Games/SEGA’s character action game that helped to redefine the genre, (Bayonetta) is an anomaly of epic proportions. It is a Platinum game published Nintendo (with SEGA advising), exclusive to the Wii U (after being multi-platform prior), somehow more boisterous than the first game and, surprisingly, even better than its predecessor. It is, in short, the best game Platinum Games has ever developed and a masterclass in action games. It does not get any better than Bayonetta 2 when it comes to the [...]
