The thing about a Nazi zombie is that it tends not to re-die until it's been utterly obliterated. So, it's totally plausible that the Nazi Zombie scourge continued to pester ill-fortified strongholds long after World War II. Considering Treyarch's commitment to historical entertainment, the develop...

[Update: Mad Catz let us know that these sticks are, as the Play-Asia reveal may suggest, being released in Asia, beyond the scope of the company's Street Fighter IV licensing deal.] The FightSticks released by Mad Catz alongside Street Fighter IV were surprising, to say the least, for Mad Catz prod...

Our wallets sighed in relief after finding out about a Play-Asia sale, and then ran away screaming once they realized that we were now tempted to import the entire store. If you import games as well, now's an opportune time at the online retailer, and if you don't, there's no better time to start. ...

Now might not be the best time to order a Japanese copy of Archaic Sealed Heat, what with E3 right around the corner and a U.S. localization likely, but Play Asia is doing its best to convince us otherwise!

The Game Boy Micro is pretty much obsolete, outpaced by the DS and DS Lite in functionality. But the DS has yet to catch up in the "being ridiculously tiny" department, and lacks the important "being in the Nintendo Famicom controller color scheme" feature that one edition of the Micro offers. Pla...
