Robert’s Pick: Over the years, my appreciation for both Hyperdimension Neptunia’s cast and Dynasty Warriors gameplay has endured, despite numerous iterations across both franchises. Looking to push my appreciation into critical mass, this week’s release of Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed blends the two series, sending Neptune, Noire, Blanc and Vert, their little sisters, as well as a two new characters hacking and slashing their way into moe-musou delight. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will certainly earn some playtime as well.

Gonçalo’s Pick: It’s not uncommon for me to pick retro games despite often being re-released multiple times. This is not one of those times, instead we are witnessing a title many have been eagerly awaiting for over 20 years and had since long given up hope of it ever happening. SEGA is finally launching an arcade-perfect port of Thunderblade with an improved 3D perspective. Many systems tried to properly emulate the demanding scaling effects only a custom arcade board could pull off, none of which produced satisfactory results. However, the wait is finally over with the release of 3D Thunderblade for Nintendo’s eShop.

  1. Lolis are back. No hunks with guns? What’s going on here? j/k

    I can’t believe people will pay $50 to play a farm sim.

  2. Princess Sakura

    Robert, I hope we get a Action Unleashed review from you. A Witcher 3 review would have been nice when you don’t knock the game for having females in provocative clothing.

  3. Witcher 3 for me.

  4. is New Super Mario Bros. the Wii version or the 3DS one?

  5. I’m so ready for Sisters Generation on PC. I just it runs and doesn’t need patches at launch just to get it working.

  6. Ill be getting Axiom Verge on PC this week. Hopefully, there’s a sale on it.

  7. Hyperdimension Neptunia U is bacially Dynasaty Warriors with anime girls right? Gah…

  8. Higurashi When They Cry “Hou”? is that a typo?
