Tales of Berseria reveals two new characters, Rokuro and Eleanor

Tales of Berseria reveals two new characters, Rokuro and Eleanor

Ron Duwell

Here I was, thinking that the Tales series was going to try something new and focus solely on one really solid playable character and not a handful of generic ones. Bandai Namco then introduced us to Velvet’s twerp comrade Laphicet, and I thought, “Okay, maybe he’ll just tag along as backup, healing and buffing Velvet as she hacks away at monsters.” But now, my dreams have taken an...

Tales of Symphonia releases on Steam in February, launch trailer is wonderful

Tales of Symphonia releases on Steam in February, launch trailer is wonderful

Ron Duwell

JRPG classic Tales of Symphonia will be joining the great migration of the JRPG genre to PCs next month. A new launch trailer from Bandai Namco confirms that the game will be available on Feb. 2. And man oh man, is the launch trailer something special!? I wouldn’t call it flashy or say that it will win over massive audiences, but it offers a firm reminder of why this is considered the...

Tales of Berseria spills the beans on its story, setting, themes for New Year's

Tales of Berseria spills the beans on its story, setting, themes for New Year's

Ron Duwell

Happy New Years from the Namco Tales Studio, because it wouldn’t be a new year without a new Tales game threatening to be released in early Spring in Japan. The latest is Tales of Berseria, the sixteenth entry in the series’ 21 year history. We’ve already been introduced to our two new protagonists, Velvet and Laciphet, but Bandai Namco has provided a slew of information regarding the...

Tekken 7: Fated Retribution gallery - Tekken it to new heights

Tekken 7: Fated Retribution gallery - Tekken it to new heights

Ron Duwell

Tekken 7 is a gorgeous video game, as proven by the final build and this batch of screenshots of the first arcade expansion, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. Of course, the big story is the coming of Street Fighter’s Akuma to bring down the mighty Heihachi, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the characters can’t shine. I’ll admit, as I have done many times before, I’m a dummy when it comes...

Dark Souls III's PC requirements revealed, not quite as brutal as the game itself

Dark Souls III's PC requirements revealed, not quite as brutal as the game itself

Eric Frederiksen

Dark Souls III hits PC the same day as consoles, a first for the series. That’s awesome! What kind of PC does it take to dive into the latest chapter in Hidetaka Miyazaki’s demanding action series? It’s actually not that bad compared to some recent games. The minimum requirements head straight for the low end, with the exception of the 50GB download: OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 64 bit...

Games can now use mini-games during loading screens as patent expires

Games can now use mini-games during loading screens as patent expires

Eric Frederiksen

Ideally, we’d never have to look at a loading screen at all. They’re pretty boring. Especially on consoles, though, they’re sometimes necessary. It would be nice if we had something to do during these moments of downtime, right? Now, if a developer wants to add a mini-game into its loading screens, it can! For the past 20 years, though, that’s been impossible. Back in 1995, Namco...

Ace Combat 7 announcement leaked, could this be real?

Ace Combat 7 announcement leaked, could this be real?

Ron Duwell

I’m a huge fan of Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat series, and that comes with the baggage of it not exactly living up to standards in recent years. Fear not, because there’s still hope for a better future! An update from the free-to-play Ace Combat: Infinity suggests that developer Project Aces could be ready to get back to business with another numbered entry in the series. Ace Combat 7?...
