One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 bounces towards PC next year

Piratical punch 'em up One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 is headed to PC next year. For me, this is great news, as among Omega Force's dumb-but-fun Warriors games there's few I consider dumber or more fun than Pirate Warriors 3. Based on pirate adventure manga and anime series One Piece, Pirate Warriors 3 was pure catharsis - if you weren't beating up literal thousands of…

Attack On Titan 2: Final Battle expands into the third season today

While the manga may have fallen down a dark and nationalist hole, Attack On Titan's escalating human-on-giant war makes for some fun games. Attack On Titan 2: Final Battle is a re-release of Omega Force's Attack On Titan 2, bundled with a new expansion covering everything in the anime series so far, adding some interesting new modes besides. If you already have Attack On Titan 2,…

Atelier Lulua: The Scion Of Arland revives a 10-year-old crafting RPG series

Even as a fan of RPGs myself, the Atelier Arland series and I have been like two ships passing in the night. Starcrossed by both my limited schedule and the role-playing genre's requirement that I sacrifice the equivalent of a small child's lifetime to complete any one game. And that's just with a single playthrough. Many fans swear the synthesise 'em up is every bit…

Dead Or Alive 6 puts four fighters in the ring for free today

Dead Or Alive 6 is the latest fighting game to offer a cut-down free-to-play version on PC - a big demo, if you will. Koei Tecmo launched the full game two weeks ago, but today's Core Fighters edition of DOA6 gives players access to four characters - Kasumi, Hitomi, Diego and Bass - and several play modes, including the DOA Quest mode and the character-customising…

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT limit breaks onto PC with a free version

Crossover fighter Dissidia Final Fantasy NT isn't one I ever expected to see on PC, so debuting with a free trial edition makes sense. Originally launched into Japanese arcades and developed by Koei Tecmo's Team Ninja, Dissidia NT is a messy online six-way team brawler. Players bounce, fly and clamber around large, open arenas trying to whittle down each other's stats until one party of…

Easygoing army-pummeler Warriors Orochi 4 is out on PC now

Remember that time Chinese warlord Cao Cao teamed up with Zeus to beat up legendary ninja Hattori Hanzo and ten thousand other dudes? Well, Warriors Orochi 4 - released today - certainly does, and I'm starting to think that someone at Koei Tecmo may have fallen asleep in history class. The Warriors Orochi series are an official crossover between the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors…

Warriors Orochi 4 set to mangle history on PC in October

Let us all forget, for a moment, the unmitigated disaster that was Dynasty Warriors 9 and remember a better time. A time when musou games (as they're known) were simple, cathartic affairs where one hero gets to beat up hundreds (if not thousands) of foes in a single brawl, all without any of that tedious open-world fluff. Well, Warriors Orochi 4 looks to be going…

Berserk Game Shows Off More Carnage

Koei Tecmo's upcoming Berserk and the Band of the Hawk [official site] has me giddy like a schoolgirl. I never got around to picking up Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage back on the Dreamcast and really regret not doing so when I found it at Half-Price Books, so this'll be my first proper Berserk game. I just know that once it's released and it's on…

Attack On Titan: Wings Of Freedom review

Occasionally I used to think, "Wouldn't it be cool to play a modern Spider-Man game that let you swing and swoop over and between buildings in a city?" No longer. My itch has been scratched. Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom is basically Spider-Man vs. Godzilla, and it is unexpectedly great.

Dynasty Warriors Spin-Off Berserk’s Trailer Gets Gibby

How do you like your claymore-wielding, lone-fighting, cape-sporting dark fantasy renegades served? If it's with a penchant for murder, a desire to slice scores of forest-dwelling monsters in half, and a want to spill as much blood as is single-handedly possible, then Berserk has you covered. In case you missed the E3 reveal (you didn't, though, because you bookmarked our E3 2016 news tab, didn't…

Next Dynasty Warriors Spin-Off Based On Berserk Manga

When it comes to lone mercenaries that feature in dark fantasy manga series, Guts is a fantastic name, don't you think? He's the co-protagonist of Berserk, see, a mature fantasy affair first published in 1989 that's known for its adult themes and graphic violence. It includes a whole load of murderin' basically, which is why developers Omega Force's decision to base their next Dynasty Warriors…

Dragon Quest Heroes Arrives On PC

Given the fact the Dragon Quest series now spans four decades, it seems a shame that it's featured so little on PC over the years. The latest series offering - action-RPG spin-off Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe [official site] - marks the first to arrive on Steam (dubbed Slime Edition) and is out now. Think typically whimsical, triumphalist, equal parts irritating/inspiring fantasy characters…

Feature: Japan's equivalent of, er, Shogun: Total War

Nobunaga’s Ambition Sphere Of Influence review

Love of history starts with a love of good stories. The complexity and doubt come later, when you have heard the same stories so many different ways that the veneer of the Great Men narrative starts peeling away from the foundations of messy, conflicting fact. But that love of a good story never really goes away. Nobunaga's Ambition: Sphere of Influence [official site] succeeds or…
