My VG Music Picks #86 – Bully (River City Girls)

I may have mentioned this before, but if a videogame has actual lyrical songs in it, I’m much more likely to buy it. It’s weird since videogames featuring songs isn’t new or special anymore, but I can’t help but be impressed/excited whenever it happens. I very nearly bought River City Girls just because it had an opening song that was only four lines long, and I was somewhat surprised that it had more songs like it. Continue reading

I’m not the biggest Dragon Ball Z fan (in fact, I’ve never watched a single episode of any of the various anime series) but even I couldn’t help but look at Dragon Ball FighterZ – a fighting game developed by Arc System Works – and think “Damn, this game looks cool.

So with the recent announcement that ‘Season 2′ will begin this year, which will no doubt see more of this series’ eclectic cast of fighters join the fray (apparently starting with Jiren from Dragon Ball Super), here are ten characters that I personally would love to see make an appearance and fight against the likes of Goku, Vegeta and co.

My VG Music Picks #27 – Fool or Clown? (Persona 4 Arena Ultimax)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Persona 4 and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

I have a funny relationship with most fighting games. I’m terrible at them and whenever a new one is announced, I barely bat an eyelid unless it’s Super Smash Bros. At the same time, however, a lot of them have certain aspects that greatly appeal to me and make me want to play them, even though I’d get fed up with them in a couple of days because I just can’t learn how the damn controls work. When Persona 4 Arena came out, I very nearly caved. A follow-up to one of my favourite RPGs ever? Like, a direct sequel story-wise? If it wasn’t for the fact that I wouldn’t have had much fun playing it, I would’ve bought it.

Then the sequel got announced. I wasn’t worried though. If Atlus couldn’t convince me to buy the first one, what made them think I’d get a sequel? The answer was simple. Bring back my favourite character and make them playable. A character so spoiler-y, that I’ve had to hide the video after the “continue reading” bit. Continue reading
