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…
