Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Out Today

In a genre that seems to be overlooked, XSEED Games and Marvelous USA gives gamers a good reason to come back! Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson makes its US debut in a "Double D" edition that comes with a 2 disc soundtrack! Expanding upon the 3DS original, Senran Kagura is a 2.5D beat-'em-up. Now if your expecting the more "Musou" style of the PS Vita or upcoming PS4 version, be prepared as it's more of a classic beat-'em'up, with a more "adult" flair.  Now the series is rated M for a reason, so do not buy this for your 7 year old!!!

Today Is The 16th Aniversary Of The US Dreamcast Launch!

On September 9th, 1999, Sega launched a console that probably was too ahead of it's time in the US. While the system did die a VERY early death in the US (I blame retailers telling people to wait for Sony's PS2) in Japan, the console lasted a bit longer. The last licensed game was released in 2008, which was Border Down, a reissue. Even after all that, unlicensed games are still giving the Dreamcast love. Games like Pier Solar and Ghost Blade are giving Sega's final machine life still.

So today, if you still own a Dreamcast, fire it up and give it some love.
