Devil May Cry Gets Stylish New Anime Adaptation
Remember when Netflix announced they were working on a Devil May Cry anime all those years ago? I think most people forgot about it, until this teaser dropped out of the blue.´╗┐It's brief, but so far so good - the animation is fluid, the music is fittingly edgy and Dante is his goofy self. The project is a collaboration between Dota: Dragon's Blood's Studio Mir and Castelvania anime creator Adi Shankar, himself a big fan of the games who says he ...

Is Kagura Bachi Really the Morbius of Manga?
The manga world is already ablaze with memes aboutKagura Bachi, which recently debuted inShonen Jump. As our friend Kinky explained over on Doujins, the meme around the series involves hyping it up like its the greatest thing since sliced bread, much like we saw with the Jared Leto movieMorbius last year. But I'm here to tell you that they couldn't be any more different.For context's sake, cast your minds back to the nineties. Before becoming a subsidiary ...
Mortal Kombat 1's Handling of DLC is Terrible (So Far)
Lately I've been enjoying the hell out ofMortal Kombat 1. I've been into this series ever since I was a kid, when my older cousins would tell me about playing it on the Sega Genesis when they were kids, and then with the PS2-era games. It's had its ups and downs as a franchise, but these days it has a respectable fanbase and solid games to boot. It would be much better if Warner Bros weren't constantly pushing for GaaS bullshit, but as far as the ...
First Look at Capcom's Onimusha Anime
Almost a year since its announcement, it's finally time to take a look at the brand-new anime based on one of Capcom's most underrated series. Quick recap:Onimusha was originally meant to be aResident Evilspin-off set in feudal Japan before being made inot its own thing, which played like theRE1 remake with less horror, more melee combat and equally goofy voice acting. There hasn't been a properOnimushagame since the PS2 era, but this anime could ...
Did Anyone Actually Play Ghostwire: Tokyo?
I remember it vividly. E3 2019, before Covid hit. During Bethesda's conference, after some apologies about the then-sad state ofFallout 76, Shinji Mikami, the legendary director ofResident Evils1 and 4,God Hand,Vanquish and many othes, came on stage to introduce the next game by his studio Tango Gameworks. This new title wasn't another sequel to their previousThe Evil Within series, but a new IP entirely. He wasn't directing this time, but the super ...
Ada Goes Seperate Ways in Resident Evil 4 DLC
TheResident Evil 4 remake turned out to be everything most fans were hoping for; a fusion of the modern-styleRE gameplay found in the remakes for2and3 plus the uniquely beloved story and characters of the original4. There were a few missing details, such as comments about Ashley's "ballistics" and the Salazar mech, but the most conspicuously absent feature was theSeperate Waysmode, which told the story from Ada's perspective as she followed in Leon's ...
Netflix's One Piece Season 2... is Real
So it turns out thatOne Piece live-action on Netflix that everyone was dreading was actually pretty decent. Sure, some parts have been changed or greatly shrunk down, but that's to be expected with any adapatation. And unlike what they did withCowboy Bebop,One Piece stays more consistently in-line withthe spirit of the source material. That was no doubt due to the heavy involvement of series creator Eichiro Oda on the show; and following the end of ...
Fist of the North Star Returns with New Anime
"Omae wo mou... shindeiru´╗┐" might be one of the most iconic catchphrases in anime history, but sadly, these days people don't even know where it comes from. Despite influencing hugely popular series such asJoJo's Bizarre Adventure andBerserk,Hokuto no Ken, orFist of the North Star, doesn't get nearly as much hype as it deserves. The 80s anime is an undisputed classic, but the OVAs in the 2000s and many game adaptations aren't as celebrated in the ...
Megan Fox Sucks (Blood) Hard in New Mortal Kombat
Celebrities appearing in games has become increasingly common, but I bet few expected an absolute bombshell like Megan Fox, often considered one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, to join a franchise famous for literally blowing people's heads off and turning bodies into red mist. The fact that one of the series' most sexy characters is making a comeback thanks to Fox is the bloody cherry on top.In a recent trailer, it was confirmed that Nitara, ...
