After a short couple weeks of closed beta, Kingdom Heroes has announced their transition into the open beta phase. This would be the "historical" MMO that teaches you all sorts of fascinating "facts" about ancient China, such as how their female warriors fought in elegantly revealing bikinis (at le...

We've got no idea how this nugget of glorious mechanized boogie snuck past us -- we'll blame it on the horror we experienced while watching Doka Harumi's robot dance routine. Another entrant in that same Japanese robo-dance contest, this red-blazered drone brings the pain, the funk, and all necessa...

It's normally only the biggest names that get splashed across limited edition DS Lites -- the Nintendogs, Zeldas, Pokémons, Guitar Heros, and Final Fantasys of this world. Playlogic clearly feels that Red Bull BC One is ready to join that elite bunch, because it ordered in an unspecified num...

We just dropped (like they were hot) a bunch of new screens into our gallery from the dance competition game with the Rub Rabbits-meets-Frankenstein aesthetic, Red Bull BC One. Unfortunately, these latest screens do about as much to flatter the game as the last set did: flat, detail-free backdrops w...

Here's an example on how to take a really cool concept and make a bad choice. Not that we think the etching itself looks bad, but there are all sorts of other cool WoW designs the owner could have put on this Macbook. We certainly understand the meaning of putting the very image players see when en...

This video illustrates how a good sound effects editor can really take something cringe-inducing and make it hilarious. Perfect integration of the sfx plus great timing on the slow motion really make this a gem. And before you think we're all cruel and heartless, we definitely hope that baby...

Man, I feel like it's 1990 all over again. Sony's upcoming B-Boy looks like it'll be a blast. You control a break dancer trying to prove his worth on the street. We've covered this game pretty extensively so far, so read up and then enjoy this lengthy gameplay video.

Marco, regular PSP Fanboy reader, wrote in our comments section: "It is something nobody has done before (as far as I know)... I think people are jaded about any game being about Hip Hop... but at least I do know that there are people who do make the genre respectable."Very true, Marco. It's pretty...

The last time PSP Fanboy covered B-Boy, Rafael was a bit cynical about the game, thinking it was driven solely by marketing towards the street crowd. This break dancing battle game has you stringing together combinations of acrobatic moves, and (as a New Yorker) I'm really excited about this game. I...

One surefire way, according to popular marketing belief, to make your product look edgy is to grab content from the vastly colorful underground culture. Granted, it doesn't always work, so while news about SCEE creating a new battle game patterned after b-boys made us go “Watchu talkin’...
