The team at Platinum Games, developer of online cross-franchise beat 'em up Anarchy Reigns, has a pretty sweet deal. Those lucky dogs get to sit around and play the games they're making all under the guise of "work." It's almost as awesome as playing and writing about video games other people mak...

You guys, I really want to like Anarchy Reigns. It's a ridiculous, over-the-top brawler and I really liked MadWorld -- like, a lot. So imagine my disappointment when I realized the only thing holding back Anarchy Reigns from being a whole lot of fun is the camera. ...

Fans of MadWorld may have some questions about the inclusion of Leo in Anarchy Reigns, but Sega isn't talking. Initially thought to be dead, it seems Leo survived and was rebuilt as a cyborg, with some sweet, Guyver-like arm-blades....

Talk about a mean tease. First, we spend practically all of February watching introductory videos about every human that inhabits the world of Anarchy Reigns -- including "Weird Paul," the guy who mops up after all the murdering.
