Zero Punctuation discovers that we could use another hero (and a way home) in this week's review of Suda 51's No More Heroes.

It's no secret that we've had No More Heroes on the brain since the game's release a few short weeks back. We're doing our best to climb the UAA ranks, but that doesn't mean we don't have time to stop and smell the roses. Some of our time has been spent dumpster-diving for t-shirts and checking out...

We can't really explain the parallels in our mind between Bomberman and Shaggy's "Boombastic." Something about the boom makes us think about bombs or something. We really can't understand why we're just so damn insane sometimes.Anywho, Bomberman Land is the only new game this week. For us, we're sti...
