Phantasy Star Online 2 sports a highly customisable character generation system and will be free to play on Xbox One.
In Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One the name given to gamers who specialise in 80s arcade games/retro-games are Gunters. The Gunters are searching for the famous Easter Egg that will give who ever finds it control of the Oasis. It’s a bit like the quest for the Holy Grail. We don’t yet have a virtual […]
Sega’s Sonic Runners mobile game has a character called “Boob”. Oops. Sega has explained the Halloween update was supposed to introduce a character called Boo. The name “Boob” is a mistake. I'm dead pic.twitter.com/dEOVZwbw27 — Paul Veer (@pietepiet) October 23, 2015
Kenichiro Tomiyasu is a freelance concept artist and designer at INEI, Inc. He’s worked for the likes of Square Enix, Sega and Capcom. I’d describe his work as bold that makes careful use of colour.

Did you know that the Mega Drive was called the Genesis in North America? Er, also, did you know the Genesis was called the Mega Drive outside of North America? I had no idea. Mind you, it was 1990 and I was 20 years younger and 20 years less wise. Step forward 2080. No, not […]
Back in June we published a rather weird video from Sega called Rise of Nightmares. It’s a horror survival game with plenty of WTF. In order to promote the game they teamed up author Al Ewing and artist Marc Olivent to put together a free comic for it. It shows the side story of Private […]
