Anarchy Reigns shows off new Multiplayer Footage

Anxiously waiting for Anarchy Reigns? Need something to sate the anticipation? Platinum Games has got you covered. Earlier today they released a trio of videos that briefly show off the game’s chaotic multiplayer mode, as well as a set of combo exhibitions from main characters Leo and Jack (of Madworld fame). While it’s admittedly a little difficult to tell what’s actually going on in the MP footage, the game’s focus on punching rather than shooting should still make for a refreshing change from the usual third-person crop.

Anarchy Reigns is set to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 this July.

How I learned I still love the Arcade

So I want to share something that I felt was awesome. This last weekend, I was out with friends getting some dinner (which was tasty, but not the point of this piece). Next to the restaurant was an arcade. I hadn’t been in an arcade in ages. Probably since I was 14 and definitely not since online gaming became a standard thing. So we went and checked it out, because why the hell not?

I’ve always thought, when I bothered to think about it, that the Arcade Society differences between Asia and America were rather odd. Why should they be so popular there, and not here? There are definitely cultural differences in the approach to console ownership. In America, ownin your home [...]

Majesco, Micropose and Kung Fu Factory announced yesterday that they will be releasing a downloadable all-girl fighting game for both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this coming spring. According to the official press release, the aptly titled Girl Fight promises “… hair flying, long legs kicking and the ear-piercing shrill of deadly vixens.”

Although, generally the story in fighting games is often secondary to the actual fighting, Girl Fight does include a backstory that seems vaguely reminiscent of director Zack Snyder’s 2011 film Sucker Punch. It involves a shadowy organization that collects female fighters from around the world and plugs [...]
