No strikeouts – players... more.

PWCF's main claim to being "unique" (a word repeatedly used) is depicting various elements like enemies and weapons as crudely drawn icons on little scraps of paper. It also strips gameplay down to the essentials, as all action takes place on a single-screen battlefield with one cannon in the lower left corner as only your weapon. Waves of enemy soldiers march from right to left and your mission i... more.

Mortal Kombat has finally returned to its 2D roots after all these years. Well, as close as it can get to the originals anyway. I was overwhelmed by memories from my youth as I launched Mortal Kombat on the Playstation 3 for the first time: the long lines at the arcade; the endless hours of combat; and performing fatalities and watching the crowd marvel at its gruesome splendor. Thanks to Nether... more.

Sega loves us. Yakuza 4 includes the missing content that was omitted from the non-Japanese release of Yakuza 3. The hostess clubs, the dating, and all the hotspots that make the seedy nightlife of Kamurocho exciting are present and accounted for. The biggest change to the series is the inclusion of 4 playable characters with stories that eventually intersect. Unlike Yakuza 3 where Kazuma was t... more.
