""As a man that enjoys the content of "Shonen Jump" for the most part, you'd think I'd fall in love with J-Stars Victory VS+. You'd think the vast roster of classic and modern icons clashing in a flurry of fists, fire and flabby tentacles would be enough to convince me of its awesomeness, and were it in anime or manga form, perhaps it would have done so. It did not, but by no means was it as bad.
In fact, it's not "bad" at all, and there's a great deal of content to engage in if you enjoy t..."
Denis Murphy writes- Hey. Sup. Guess what? You're probably sick to the gills of me saying this, but today I'll be reviewing an game by Compile Heart. Yeah, seriously. I know, it seems like every second week (literally!) I'm reviewing another title by the Tokyo based developer/publisher. Well, technically this latest was developed by a different company entirely, but it's part of a Compile Heart franchise and it was published by Compile Heart, so it's one step away from being renamed Compile H...

For this week's Famitsu, 9 games on several paltforms were reviewed and so, here are their scores:
E3 is over halfway done and gamers have been wowed and some of us have been disappointed. Microsoft blew gamers away, and Sony had some great announcements that made people scream and cry. Bethesda made gamers spend money, EA impressed with SW Battlefront, and Ubisoft sort of made a sad “wah, wah” trombone noise.
"Mining adventures. Whenever I see a videogame attempt to send you on a journey, mining your way deep into the world as you go, then I can’t help but think of Minecraft or Terraria. For different reasons, they are the two champions of discovery. However, SteamWorld Dig is a mining adventure that, for sheer joy at least, bests both of those titles. It may not have the longevity of the world’s favourite discovery and crafting titles, but with the direction it brings, it’s a hell of a lot more fun."
The indie race on the console front is a tight one, today Playstation fans get a win with Team Meat bringing Super Meat Boy to the PS4 and Vita, with changes in platform technology (Cell to x86) and improved efforts with devkits and tools the future looks hopeful for fans who missed out on SMB hitting the PS3 when it first landed out there.
For those with Playstation Plus, this also means accessing the game for free from launch as a thanks from Team Meat for waiting it out. While no firm d...
"Back in September of 2013 Project Phoenix, a mix of real-time strategy and JRPG gameplay, got funded to the tune of just over one million dollars (roughly 1000% funded). This campaign brought together several talented game developers from both Western and Eastern nations to work on this ambitious title. Almost two years later, after regularly updating their backers, Hiroaki Yura has confessed on what's taking so long."
"Cellar Door Games initially released Rogue Legacy, their rogue-like platformer, to the PC masses back in 2013 and then onto Playstation a year later. Now, 12 months on from the Sony release, Cellar Door are back and bringing their randomly generated castle platformer to Xbox One. Has it transferred well to Xbox One or is the excessive randomness just too much for the casual player?"
Deep Silver has teamed up with the legendary development teams at Comcept and Inti Creates to bring you the next evolution of a classic gameplay genre. Mighty No. 9 is scheduled to release on September 15th of this year. Check out the latest gameplay trailer below in 1080p running at 60fps.
"I must admit to having passed Badland by on its mobile release. How that happened, god only knows as by all accounts it was a pretty massive thing a year or two back. But hey, mobile games are two a penny with a market saturated by tappy tappy touchscreen affairs…even if the decent ones are a little less common. But now Badland has made its arrival onto the big screen with a Game of the Year Edition, I just can’t let it pass without having a little play. Am I going to be kicking myself for mi..."
Deep Silver and Comcept have today released a new gameplay trailer for Kickstarter sensation, Mighty No.9. In ‘Beat Them At Their Own Game’, the hero of the game, Beck, takes on the challenge of his eight mighty opponents and fights his way through ever-changing stages and epic boss fights.

Bigben Interactive has confirmed that they’ve locked up the licence for the Rugby World Cup from Rugby World Cup Limited, and will be bringing a game based on the tournament – which will be held in England – to both Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, PC and PS Vita in September."

It’s available to download right now for £6.39, however Xbox Live Gold members get a lovely 20% off that price for a limited time.
Matching marbles goes way back. Back to a time before Microsoft had even dreamt up the original Xbox and to a time when Sony were just about getting on the ladder with their Playstation. It was a time when gamers were easily pleased and begging to be hit with something more addictive and taxing rather than the visually spectacular set piece master strokes we expect now in 2015.
