Namco Bandai’s Tales series is one of the most popular RPG franchises in Japan, right along side Pokemon, Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. If you’re a JRPG fan, but not particularly fond of those three frontlining franchises, chances are you were looking forward to Tales of Xillia 2.

With a slick visual style and a smooth soundtrack that would fit right at home in a Steven Soderbergh film, CounterSpy feels like a love letter to the super spy movies of the sixties.
Enemy Front seeks to bring us back to the honorable days of first-person shooters when many of them were fighting the good fight in World War II.
Beneath GRID's stoic veneer lies the beating heart of one of the most in-depth, technical racers to hit consoles in a long while.
Ultra Street Fighter IV proves that its core concepts are still the gold standard, tweaking the core Street Fighter enough to give it new life while maintaining the greatness the series has seen for a quarter-century. This is the best Street Fighter yet.
From the minute Mikhail asked if he could find a bush I knew something was amiss, and all of those fears came to a head every minute I spent playing Drakengard 3.
While its predecessors are known for their grand sense of freedom, Blackgate tries to compensate for its lack of large-scale exploration with a small-scale price... and small-scale fun.
Duodecim. NOL. The Six Heroes. The Black Beast. If you don't know what any of these terms mean, you probably haven't been keeping up with the BlazBlue series of fighting games from Arc System Works.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight exists in a world of green, swamp infested evil. You start off as a minion who's doing the bidding of a bloodthirsty witch named Metallia, and unless you get in her good graces, you'll be added to her pile of victims. Breaking bad in an RPG universe isn't exactly a novel concept, but The Witch and the Hundred Night weaved a beguiling enough spell to keep me intrigued.
Zombie. Ninja. Cyborg. When coming up with the concept for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, it seems like the development team over at Tecmo Koei were just reaching for whatever pop culture trends they could find and merged them together to create their new hack and slash. This spin-off of the unforgiving, but rewarding, Ninja Gaiden series features a new hero, new look, and drastically different gameplay, but it forgot to include the one thing the previous Ninja Gaiden games had: fun.
