We're all for super tough, magical knights with transforming sword/scythe weapons. Snarling 15-foot beasts, though? Not so much. The latest trailer for Knights Contract features both. This could pose a problem for us, juxtaposing two things that we, respectively, like and despise. When we saw the m...

I played the video game version of Clash of the Titans for around seven hours and, according to the game, have finished 31 percent of it. This would usually be unsatisfactory for a review, but in much the same way you'd only need to poll a small percentage of the population before you could confid...

We know our first thought after watching this Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom trailer should be, "Wow, look at all the pretty colors," or "Hey, this looks like it's going to scratch our Ico and Beyond Good & Evil itches pretty definitively." However, our minds are only addled with raw, unchecked...

For all the time we spent expressing our admiration of Game Republic's Dragon Ball: Origins (admiration that will probably also apply to the sequel, though we don't really know yet), Namco Bandai's latest effort will be a lot more effective in convincing people to try it out before its June 22 relea...

Despite starring a lovably clumsy-looking monster, Game Republic's Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom appears to have puzzles that require a bit of human-style finesse. In the clip above, the player commands Majin to open a gate, just the first step in luring a pack of beasts to its explosive death. And...

We're sure a lot of you missed Dragon Ball Origins the first time around -- after all, licensed games are a dime a dozen on DS, and it's hard to devote your attention to any one, especially if the license isn't something you care about. However, we thought it was something that deserved attention, a...

Namco Bandai has been mum about Game Republic's Majin: The Fallen Realm since introducing the game at August's GamesCom event. In fact, even though the company just released new assets, it's still pretty much mum on the game: the latest release consists only of one piece of character art and five sc...
