BitSummit 2015: Is There A Future For PC Games In Japan?

BitSummit has inarguably helped reinvigorate the indie game scene in Japan. A successful introduction in 2013 begat a larger event in 2014, and the third BitSummit, held at Kyoto's Miyako Messe this past weekend, was even bigger still. Developers from inside and outside Japan came together with fans, international media and large companies such as Sony, Microsoft and Steam, to show off some of the…

Incredible – Neo Aquarium 2: Ace Of Seafood

I think the best way I can classify Neo Aquarium 2: Ace of Seafood is "fish-person shooter." Or, alternatively, I suppose I can just go with "completely fucking bonkers." In short, it's an over-the-shoulder (fish do not have shoulders; gaming lexicon, you have failed me) third-person shooter where you're a fish that fires lasers in an attempt to blow up worms, fish, and any other…

Japanese Faction R.U.S.E. DLC Appears!

RPS's natural state is well documented as a kind of electric bewilderment, but this is surprising even for us. A new sliver of DLC entitled The Rising Sun Pack has just been released for RPS favourite R.U.S.E., adding the Japanese to the game as a brand new faction with 28 new units, plus 3 new Japan-centric Operations (standalone scenarios), one of which sees the Japanese…

Japanese Retro PC Site

In keeping with the Japanese theme of the week, I've uncovered a Japanese retro PC site, which hosts four games by Bio_100%, who apparently made a whole bunch of PC games between 1990 and 1999. The site has little rolling videos of their greats, such as Owl-Zoo, on the tiles on the main page. The site is about the cutest thing I've ever seen, and…
