Ibuki, the high school ninja girl whom we were introduced to in Street Fighter III, and once in Street Fighter IV, is going for a three-peat with her debut in Street Fighter V.  Excited yet?  Well, finally got a release of her official trailer and the assets that go along with it after those who tuned into the "Combo Breaker" tournament got an advance peek at it.

You can check out Ibuki's official Street Fighter V reveal trailer, screenshots, and my impressions after the jump below.

Nutaku is currently celebrating its opening of an adult/hentai downloadable games store.  Many people have had a problem with this, with one article I read saying that it was a “new low for gamers”.  Many social justice warriors complained about the localization of “Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball 3” which made Japan think twice about releasing here, thus those who wanted it had to import.  Not to mention various censorship of titles released in the west across the board, even Nintendo’s Fire Emblem titles were not safe from being altered.  Needless to say, western gamers who want to experience a more “adult” taste cannot.

This store is aiming to change all that by providing a way to download risqué titles, and it stands as a win for us gamers who actually want to play these sorts of games but cannot because of an oversensitive crowd.  Hit the jump to hear my full reasoning on why this benefits us in the long run.

The King of Fighters XIV has started to periodically release trailers that highlight a specific team out of the 16 that are available.  The second trailer released happens to be that of "Team Yagami" which focuses on the three combatants (from left-to-right); Mature, Iori Yagami, and Vice.

The trailer has been embedded along with my impressions regarding what we saw out of each combatant.  As of this writing, I have not written an impression for the first trailer which focused on "Team Japan".  This section will be updated with a link to that article once I am finished.

Waifu Crush Wednesday is modeled after the popular "#WCW" or "Women Crush Wednesday".  This bi-weekly editorial focuses upon female characters in gaming, anime, and manga that I happen to like in one form or another.  I will do my best to explain my affinity for that particular character.

If you are familiar with SNK or The King of Fighters, odds are that you are aware of their busty ninja, Mai Shiranui (The first female character to appear in an SNK fighting game).  I first discovered this girl by playing Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition on Playstation.  However, I really come to love her character due to her appearances in the Fatal Fury animated movies.  Since she is returning with Team Women Fighters in The King of Fighters XIV, I figure I might as well show my favorite SNK girl some love!

Games these days have begun to work on downloadable content (DLC) before games have even launched due to being finished with the core game.  Seems to me that 7th Dragon III Code: VFD has followed suit so gamers know what they can look forward to after finishing what the game launches with.

The press release with all the details is featured inside (includes the downloadable content, their descriptions, as well as pricing).  Also, for those of you who have not seen, I have included the "Battle System Trailer" after the press release.

Grand Kingdom has graced us with a new character trailer (present inside), information regarding digital pre-order deals, as well as including all of the Japanese downloadable content in the release for North America and Europe (All DLC characters as well as the Four Great Nations Campaign DLC).

Those of you who want to check out the official press release, as well as the trailer, screenshots, and details for the pre-order need not look any further!

The Division greeted us with a trailer for their newest update, “1.2: Conflict”.  This trailer told us about all the new features and the new Incursion that is on its way to The Division, and a new feature that they have named, “Hijack Extraction”.  How they have described it is;

“Dark Zone extractions just became even more intense.  Interrupt ongoing extractions by cutting the rope to have all the loop drop to the ground.  Protect your loot at all costs!”

Excuse me, what?!  This is moronic.  Hit the jump to find out my feelings on the subject and why this is a horrendous move by Ubisoft that may deter players from giving The Division another try even more.

With OVERWATCH fast approaching, I wanted share all the information I have found out during the beta.  I have a handful of characters (Mei, Reaper, Reinhardt, and Zarya) whom I want to share my strategies to success.  These should aid those who want to utilize these characters and give their teams the best shot at winning!

Mei-Ling Zhou is quite lovable.  She is a defensive character who is able to slow people down and really aid the team with her ability to throw up ice walls.  While she might have a hard time killing particular heroes on her own, she is no slouch and by far my favorite OVERWATCH character due to her ability to cripple the enemy team's strategy.   Learn to love her like I do!

OVERWATCH is one of the many new endeavors by Blizzard Entertainment, creators of gems like HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft, World of Warcraft, and Starcraft.  I first heard about OVERWATCH by its beautiful CGI trailer which introduced the first four heroes in a museum for "OVERWATCH" (which is a global defense force).  I was introduced to Tracer, Widowmaker, Reaper, and Winston.  After seeing this and wanting to try out the game, I finally got my chance to test it for myself.

This Team Fortress styled objective based First Person Shooter recently closed its doors on an open beta for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.  After getting to participate within it, I want to share my general experience with the game.  While this impressions piece will not be so incredibly detailed as to go over every single character’s ins and outs (something I will save for the full game’s review), I will give you my impressions over the general cast and how the game works.

Gears of War 4 is currently on the horizon and will bring a new trilogy to classic Gears of War series.  To ensure a healthy multiplayer experience, a beta was currently held (which I participated in, but not enough to really give it a thorough review).  However, during the final day of the beta I was fortunate enough to play a bit of the “Dodgeball” mode, and I can say without a doubt that it is the best thing to be added to the Gears of War multiplayer series thus far.  In fact, rather than making the default game mode “Team Death Match”, they should simply take it out altogether and replace it with Dodgeball.

For those of you who do not think this should be, I suggest you read my reasoning as to why this is a smart idea.  Go ahead and hit the jump.

Waifu Crush Wednesday is modeled after the popular "#WCW" or "Women Crush Wednesday".  This bi-weekly editorial focuses upon female characters in gaming, anime, and manga that I happen to like in one form or another.  I will do my best to explain my affinity for the character featured here.

To be honest, I had always liked the aesthetic look of Chie Satonaka ever since I heard of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4.  As you all might know from my recent slew of articles, I recently completed Persona 4 the Golden on Playstation Vita and am busy watching Persona 4 the Golden ANIMATION (even wrote a 1st Episode Impression for it!).  With Chie being my “best girl”, figured that it would only be right that I highlight her in this week’s Waifu Crush Wednesday!

  ALERT!   - The picture of Chie Satonaka used as this article's featured image, as well as the one used after the jump were both drawn by Ilya Kuvshinov.  You can find his deviantART with links to his other social media accounts HERE.

Recently I have completed Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 the Golden on Playstation Vita.  I played this Japanese role-playing game for a couple of reasons: the first being that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5 was due out sometime this year and that Persona 4 was regarded as one of the greatest games of all-time.  I am now really wanting to view the anime since the game made a lasting impression upon me.

Fast forward to day, I have taken the first step of watching this fantastic anime.  You will see my impressions regarding everything below, even how it compares to the game that it was based off of.
