A week of sword boys, kangaroo, and a longer June.

Things we missed last week: Data East's Trio The Punch in the Archives.

Last week had the lowest total all year that wasn't explainable by a holiday, and this week's starting out as quiet. If you'd like to get a Warriors fix but want a game with more bishonen by volume than Three Hopes, Koei Tecmo's... Read more...

North America is getting a lot of stuff this week that was already out in Europe - and in some cases, should've STAYED there.

Things we missed last week: In addition to the Indie World shadowdrops (Soundfall, Mini Motorways, Gibbon: Beyond the Trees, OPUS: Echoes of Starsong), Card Shark got a demo, and Pro Tennis World Court is the new ACA game.

It's a quiet-looking week - though we said that last week and ended up with... Read more...

Things we missed last week: Archives release is Namco's JP/Asia only release Youkai Douchuki.
